9 Self Tanner Hacks That Will Leave You With Gorgeous, Glowing Skin

From orange palms to tiger-like streaks, there are plenty of things that can go wrong when applying self tanner. However, this simple beauty process isn’t something to be scared of. In fact, self-tanning is a perfect way to get a natural looking tan without ever stepping in the sun’s harsh rays. Personally, I’m a huge advocate of the process as it gives the body such an amazing glow. Think of it as a magic wand that can even out your skin tone from head to toe.

However, as great as at-home tanning is, there are still a handful of things that can go wrong in the process. But don’t fret just yet. You just need to get the steps down. Like any beauty routine, there are steps that you have to take to ensure that everything messes together. From proper exfoliation to laying off heavy moisturizers, there are plenty of do’s and don’t when it come stop self tanning. Once you’ve had orange palms, you never want to go back to that Oompa Loompa lifestyle. Wondering what you can do to get your best fake tan yet? Here are 9 self tanning hack that will leave your gorgeous, glowing skin from head to toe.

1. Go Oil Free:

When it comes to prepping your skin for self tanner, everyone knows to exfoliate. However, are you choosing the right body scrub? According to Shape, we should all be reaching for oil free exfoliator as those with oil can leave a barrier against the skin that won’t allow the tanner to adhere evenly.

I have found that this LimeLight by Alcone exfoliator “Bamboo Renew” works wonders. I use it for my whole body. Arms, legs, elbows, knees, face and lips too.

Turn your shower into a spa with this revitalizing body scrub that will invigorate your skin and your senses with polishing Walnut Shell Powder, Bamboo, and a refreshing essential oil blend of Lemongrass, Mimosa Flower, and Litsea. This daily scrub gently foams, exfoliates, and leaves your skin lemony fresh and silky smooth.

2. Shave at a certain time:

While shaving is a great way to exfoliate the skin prior to self-tanning, be sure that you’re giving your skin enough time to rest before applying tanning products. According to Redbook, you should shave 12 to 24 hours before applying the self tanner in order to allow your pores to close. This way your tanner won’t settle into the open pores, which can create a speckled appearance on the skin.

 

3. Prevent Staining

vaseline

StyleCaster.com reports that a great way to prevent your self tanner from clinging to the dry patches is to apply a thin layer of vaseline to the area beforehand. Be sure to swipe the jelly along your hands, elbows, and the back of your heels to prevent excess creasing or staining.

4. Keep your feet clean:

Using a spray product to tan your body? Cosmopolitan wants you to mind your feet. The website recommends placing tape to the bottom of your feet in order to avoid stepping in any pigment that might have fallen on the floor.

 

5. Powder, Powder, Powder:

To keep your self tanner from creasing, Cosmopolitan recommends applying talc-free baby powder post-tan to your elbows, knees, and armpits. As these areas can fold, they have a higher chance of creasing and streaking. The powder will help to further set the tanner to prevent any possible smudging.

 

6. Use Ice:

Keep breakouts at bay by rubbing an ice cube along your face before applying your fake tan. The ice will help close your pores and therefore, keep these tanner from clogging your skin.

 

7. Skip the pool:

Avoid the pool for up to 24 hours after you apply your fake tanner. According to POPSUGAR, the chlorine in the pool can fade or remove your freshly applied tan.

8. Glove up:

Forgo orange palms, yellow nails, and creased knuckles by wearing disposable gloves when applying your self tanner. It’s a simple way to keep a natural looking tan without any staining or streaking.

 

9. Sleep on it:

The best time to apply your self tanner is right before bed. According to DailyBeautyHack.com, sleeping warms the body and helps the product to soak in throughly. Worried about staining your sheets? Be sure to throw down a few towels just in case.

 

Here are some of my favorite sunless tanning products:

jergens one.pngJergens Natural Glow Instant Sun: Instantly creates a flawless, natural-looking tan, even when the beach is miles (or months) away; With Advanced Color Complex, the airy mousse works with your skin’s natural tone to mimic results from the sunMousse formula is tinted so you can see where you’ve applied it, and it allows for precise, even application.

LimeLight by Alcone Liquid Sunshine: This liquid bronzer is a great way to add some “sunshine” to your skin. It has a bit of sparkle so it will catch the light and make you look luminescent. Gorgeous on legs, arms, and décolleté. “This product comes from a professional manufacturer who gave us the liquid and said, “”we were holding this little, secret formula and this feels like the right time.”” We agree, it does feel like the right time for a little Liquid Sunshine. ” Click here to see ingredients
