Even though summer is coming to an end we still want to have our cowgirl glow.
Sun rays- UVA and UVB- are very damaging to the skin, and can cause several serious skin issues. The major cause of skin aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines is sun damage. Other issues that come with too much exposure to the sun includes age spots, hyper pigmentation and skin cancer. Tanning beds are even worse, we would never advise anyone to use this route. It’s more risky than sun exposure. They emit up to 15 times more UV radiation than the sun.
Your best option is to use tanning lotions that are made from natural ingredients. They darken up the skin just from topical application, with no adverse effect! Want to try it out? Here’s how!
4 Ways To Use Our UnBridled Tanning Lotion For Best Results.
1. Exfoliate. This is a very important first step. Your skin needs to be smooth and rid of flaky dead skin cells. Exfoliating your skin would give you better results with your tanner. Pay extra attention to those dry parts of the body like the elbows and the knees. We recommend using the True Grit Body Scrub. It contains essential vitamins that will also work to feed your skin and keep it healthy.
2. Use Gloves. Put on gloves before you start applying your tanner. This is to make sure that the color doesn’t soak into your palms. If you don’t have gloves though, you can simply wash your hands thoroughly after the application. Remember to rub in a dab of the tanner into your hands so they don’t appear pale and match the rest of your body.
3. Use Broad Strokes. We recommend using our Unbridled Tanning Lotion. It gives you awesome results within 4 hours. It doesn’t just work as a tanner, it also provides nourishment for your skin. Make sure your body isn't greasy from any residual body cream, so it can easily absorb the tanning lotion. Using uniform swipes, spread the lotion in all directions on your body. For your knees and elbows, you can dilute the tanner with your moisturizer. Those areas can get dry really fast so you need to keep them hydrated. Dry areas absorb color better, which means if you don’t keep those areas moisturized, they can appear darker than the rest of your body.
4. Check For Streaks and Tone Them Down. If you get an uneven look just take a quick shower and it should wash off. You can even do a light exfoliation.
