When it comes to trying to look your best, tans are a great way to achieve such a look. A good question for this season would be how to achieve a great tan when it’s so cold outside? Sunbathing is obviously out of the question. This leaves us with two options: self tanning and indoor tanning. To get more ideas on how to look your best for your upcoming Christmas parties, here are some of the things you’ll need to consider.


Before tanning, you’ll want to make sure your skin is prepared and well taken cared of before you do any tanning. This means proper exfoliating prior to tanning. A nicely exfoliated skin makes a really good palette for tanned skin. This is very important for the wintry days since your skin easily goes dry. Thus try to take out the dead skin cells prior to going to your tanning salon or putting on some self tanner.
Another factor to getting an even tan, you have to maintain good skin. This is by making good use of moisturizers, creams and lotions to keep your skin hydrated in the chilly weather. Making sure the hydration of your skin is a top priority gives way to healthier skin that would help promote better skin.
Now, if you’re hoping to get an even tan through indoor tanning, the best way to get that is maintain a certain number on the tanning bed. You’ll want to get as little coverage as possible and not move much. Tanning beds offer an overall tanning experience on both sides but the downside can be having some sunburn or your skin drying up due to the heat.
If you don’t want to go through that experience, you can make use of self tanners. A very effective tanning method is spray tanning. This tanning option provides a lot of coverage to large areas and are evenly done. You also do not put your skin at any harm as self tanners do not make use of UV radiation to tan your skin. This also means you can easily get your tan on one sitting thus you’ll be ready for any Christmas party to get to.
In order to make the most out of your tanned skin, try to avoid skin care products with retinol as this can harm your self tanned skin. You may also want to avoid dipping into any pools despite how cold it is as chlorine can lighten tanned skin.
