If you are able to visit a tanning salon for medical reasons or if you want to self-tan but are on a fixed budget, you can use a good self-tanning lotion and still look as if you left the tanning salon. You want to purchase a tanning lotion that best matches your skin because you do not want to look darker than what you are and you also do not want to look like a walking carrot stick. Before you apply the self-tanning lotion you need to exfoliate your skin with a body scrub that works with the kind of skin you have. Once you rinse your legs or arms off you will have to put gloves to prevent a huge mess while putting on the lotion. Expert self-tanners mention that you should start with the legs then go to the rest of the body.
1. Put Moisturizer On Your Skin Before Applying The Lotion
To maintain softer skin after you put on the self-tanning lotion, it is wise to apply moisturizing lotion on your skin at least two to three days before putting on the lotion. Look for a moisturizing lotion that has vitamins and minerals since these help your skin remain healthy after applying lotion to the skin.
2. Apply The Lotion Evenly
When putting the self-tanning lotion on your skin, you want to apply it evenly throughout the body and you can have a friend or your spouse apply self-tanning lotion to the difficult to reach parts of the body such as the back of the neck, area near the shoulders as well as the other parts of the body such as the ankles, elbows and knees.
