Traditional tanning methods have become less popular these days because of major health risks. Because of this major finding in tanning, several companies have provided tanning creams, lotions, and sprays to get a tanned skin, even without the help of tanning beds or the sun. Most people prefer this type of artificial tanning. Why? Because it involves no significant health risk as long as the applicant has no allergies to the materials. Among these innovations, the one that is gaining the most popularity is the self tanning spray. This easy to use product is sprayed evenly on the skin. Then, all you have to do is wait for it to dry. Tanning products contain a chemical called dihydroxyacetone (DHA). This chemical acts as an agent that triggers the amino acids in the skin to produce a great tan. Tanning products have been recognized by many as safe and effective. This is on the grounds that they do not produce as great of a high risk of harmful health problems as traditional tanning beds. Applying a tanning spray is pretty easy, but there are some things that you need to know to achieve that perfect even tan. Here are five things that you should remember when you apply one. Prepare your skin Before you apply a tanning spray, make sure that your skin can handle the formulation. Read the instructions carefully. Then, apply a small amount of the spray and wait for any allergic reactions or discoloration. In this way, you can check the quality of the tanning spray ,and you reduce the risk of hurting your skin. It is best that you remove all the dead skin cells on your body with an exfoliating shower Scrub before the spray tan so that the spray will be more effective. Why would I do that? Well, tanning sprays usually “stick” to the outer layer of your skin. So if your dead skin cells are still on your body, they will be tanned, and your tan will not last long. Aside from this, healthy skin cells are very receptive to the tannig sprays and will hold color longer. Scrub your whole body using a loofah or any other scrub, and make sure that you exfoliate your whole body, especially the exposed parts. Aside from scrubbing your body, be sure to apply a moisturizer a few hours before you apply your tanning spray. This softens your skin, making it more receptive to the products. This will also extend the longevity of your tan along with higher absorbancy. Application strategies Wear dark clothing. Why would I do that? Ok, the spray sometimes discolors them. Aside from this, make sure that you have a pair of gloves that you can use to avoid discoloration of your hands. Whatever is most comfortable for you. Some prefer to use their hands to evenly apply the spray. Just be sure that you wash your hands right away after application to avoid further discoloration. When you start spraying your body be sure to apply the tanning spray evenly. Prepare a towel or tissue to wipe off drips. Also, make sure that you apply the spray in covered areas such as the back of your ears to achieve an even color. Final reminders Make certain that you have evenly applied the spray. Make necessary adjustments if you find any discoloration. Stand still for about a minute to avoid dripping and uneven application. It is crucial that you do not move ,especially your joints, since these areas can easily remove the application. Be sure to follow the instructions given in your kit ,and do not forget to apply a sun screen when you go out. Most tanning sprays contain a sun screen protection formula, but it is best to apply it separately to ensure safety. These three steps will give you that perfect tan you have been dreaming about. Just be sure to follow these reminders and all you have to do next is find that perfect dress to jaw drop in that new tanned look!
