Valentines is a day we want to look our best. If not for our family and friends but for our significant other. While we can don a nice set of nice clothes or do a makeover, it might not be enough to feel good with ourselves. One of the best ways to make a good look for Valentines is to make use of self tanners. If you’re not familiar, self tanners is a way to get a summer glow. This method does not make use of the sun’s rays or UV rays in general. Due to that, it’s a much healthier approach to tanning. With the recent scares of how harmful sunbathing and indoor tanning can be, it’s not surprising that self tanning has become a much appealing method.

Tanning gives way to a good coverage for any blemishes on your skin. It’s also a good way sort out any uneven skin tones as well. Unlike the usual method of tanning, self tanners have become a much beloved approach due to how convenient they can be in terms of tanning. However, there are still some tips to remember when you want to do some self tanning, even experts can have mishaps.

Since you’re trying to woo your companion for Valentines, here are some tips you can consider to make the most out of your self tan for Valentines:

– Prior to getting your self tan, it’s always a good idea to do a thorough exfoliating session beforehand. Exfoliating gets rid of the dead skin cells that have accumulated on the topmost layer of your skin. Removing this layer gives way to younger skin which the self tanner can adhere easily. Putting on self tanner on younger skin also helps make it last longer. If you also do some waxing, make sure to wax your body at least two days before you do your self tanning. Your pores need to rest before you apply any self tanner.

– Instead of using a tanning, why not use an airbrush to do your self tanning. Spray tanning, as this method is called, makes a better output. With a controlled spray, this method doesn’t waste any self tanner while also making sure that you get a good coverage for each spray of your self tanner. With the aid of the airbrush you can also contour your tan, like how a bronzer works. You can have a friend help you out so you can do a thorough contouring with your self tan.
