Tan skin is something everyone wants in the summer.  However, using the sun, as well as other forms of tanning can be dangerous for your health and damaging to your skin.  However, there are ways to stay tan that do not require risk and can safely tan your skin:  

  • Self-Tanner:

Using a self-tanner is the easiest way to avoid skin damage because it doesn’t require the sun or sunbeds. In order to apply self tanner correctly you need to exfoliate your skin first,  then apply evenly and carefully all over the body and remember to wash your hands afterwards.  A gradual tanner is the safest to use so you don’t turn orange!

  • Spray Tan:

In order to get a good spray tan, go to a professional salon to get this done. Whether you go into a machine or get it done by someone, spray tans last longer than self-tanner and the fear of streaks via self-tanner does not apply to a spray tan. There are a few rules on maintaining your spray tan and making it last for as long as possible.   

  • Bronzing Powder:

Bronzer makeup and powder is one of the quickest and easiest way to get a fast tan.  After applying foundation brush on some bronzer and get an instant glow without all the hassle of self tanning. You can choose when you want a summer glow!  

  • Cocoa Cream:

Another quick and simple way to get a glow to your skin is to add cocoa powder to an all natural body lotion.  You can adjust how dark you want the lotion by adding more or less cocoa powder. This will moisturize and hydrate your skin in the process.  

  • Use Sunscreen:

By using sunscreen, you protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. This allows you to tan while being outside and not burn your skin. It’s best to use actual sunscreen and stay away from any oils because that will cause you to burn and damage the skin. It is also helpful to know what your tanning time is, i.e. the length of time you can stay out in the sun without burning.
