7 Self-Tanner Products To Get You Glowing
If the thought of baring your legs come springtime sends you spiralling into shock, it might be time to invest in a quality self-tanner.
An all-over glow is undeniably beautiful, but lying in the sun or a tanning booth is no longer trendy – it’s a health risk, as excessive exposure to UV rays has been linked to skin cancer and premature aging. Still, there’s a reason Victoria’s Secret models aren’t channelling Morticia Adams on the runway: tanned skin screams sexy, and it’s easier to achieve than ever before.
With so many great self-tanners in the market, there’s no excuse for a streaky, orange or uneven appearance. For the most natural result, apply self-tanner using a sponge or matt to “dry skin and after a thorough exfoliation of the whole body,” says Vee Mistry, sunless tanning expert and owner of SITAMAA Day Spa in downtown Toronto. “Make sure elbows, knees, ankles and the area between fingers have been thoroughly scrubbed,” adds Mistry, as skin tends to be drier in these areas. Finally, increase the longevity of your tan by taking shorter showers and moisturizing daily.
