Safe Summer Tan

Now that the summer season is bearing down on us, many women find it important to have a nice, bronzed tone to their skin. Different choices of how to get this tanned look can vary. Many may choose to go lie out in the warm summer sun, and some just decide to go to the tanning bed; however, a majority forgets to consider the option of a UV-less, not harmful to the skin tan. This is where artificial tans are introduced. If you are wary to go out and be exposed to the sun’s harmful rays, or scared of being unprotected in a tanning bed, self-tanners can come in handy if you still want a bronzed, summer tone.

Most chain stores sell self-tanning products. They can be found at any CVS, Walgreens, or Wal-Mart in your area. There are also many different types of tanners that you can get. They come in different forms, substances, or the way they are applied. There are actual self-spray tan bottles where you spray it on, lotions that you simply apply to every part of your body, or creams that must be applied all over.

The most popular, highly recommended self-tanner is L’Oreal Sublime Bronze which comes in a spray bottle and can be found in an array of shades.  There is one to match the color tan you are looking for. This product is priced at approximately $8. Another popular self-tanner is Jergens Natural Glow Daily. This product is a lotion, which is to be applied once a day to your entire physique. Jergens can be found in stores at the convenient price of $8. Rounding out the top self-tanners out on the market is Clarin’s Self Tanning Instant Gel. This is along the lines of a higher end product. It is applied exactly like the lotion previously featured, but it comes as a gel substance. This do-it-yourself tanner costs approximately $35.

Although self-tanners might save you from the harmful effects of the sun, you must be aware of how you use the product. It is highly advised that when applying spray, gel, or lotion that you watch closely the amount you put on, and that you have reached every nook and cranny of your body, distributing evenly. Self-tanners are known to possibly turn a tad orangey if too much is applied on a regular basis. Remember to keep your usage in moderation, and do not over do it. Otherwise, you may end up looking like an oompa loompa, instead of a bronzed beauty.

Self-tanning products are highly recommended because they keep you away from dangers to your skin, while still giving you that mid-summer glow. Summer’s almost here, so check them out today!

    My opinion on this one, I rather choose a tanning bed which than a tanning handy spray. Imagine what kind of chemical is absorbed by our using a tanning spray which our skin color will change? Just think about it?
