Trying to keep your summer glow for the colder days is quite a hard feat. With the temperature going lower and lower, your skin is bound to shed off the layer of tan you worked yourself to get during summer. That’s actually not a fate you have to endure by the time fall truly takes the city. A good way to prolong your summer glow is making use of self tanners, as the days are too cold for sun bathing.

Now, why is self tanner a better choice as compared to booking a schedule for your trusty indoor tanning session? It’s been known that consistent exposure to the sun can lead to skin cancer. That fact is also applicable to indoor tanning since tanning beds make use of UV rays to change the tone of your skin. Too much UV radiation has led to an increase of skin cancer cases all over the world thus indoor tanning to get your tan is a big no-no with such a heavy health risk at hand.

To get the most out of your self tannin experience, it’s best to understand the type of self tanner you want to get first. Be sure to choose the self tanner that doesn’t cause any adverse reactions to your skin as that can lead to a lot of skin damage if you’re not careful.

When you’re trying to get your self tan, make sure to avoid oversaturating yourself. One of the common mishaps is how one’s tan can be too orange for the normal taste or be too uneven. Since we’re getting to much colder days, try to remember that your tan should make your skin glow and not to oversaturate the tan. A good way to do this would be to gradually build the tone of your tan. Slowly dab the self tanner until you arrive at a shade you’re happy with.

Don’t overdo on applying your self tanners. Make sure to evenly schedule your self tanning sessions. Putting layer over layer of self tan not only makes an uneven tone but also clumps up your pores which can lead to acne and other skin conditions that can affect the overall palette of your skin.

You can invest a humidifier for those dry nights. Having the extra moisture in the air helps hydrate your skin even while you’re sleeping; hydrated skin helps in keep the tan stick. This is due to the layer of skin cells being supple and healthy which is an exact opposite to dry skin.
