A Beginner’s Guide to Self Tan

Sunless tanning is a great way to give your skin a natural glow without exposing yourself to the risks of sun damage. Sunless tanning products have Dihydroxyacetone, which is also known as DHA. It is a colourless sugar that reacts with the amino acids and proteins underneath your skin, which helps your skin produce a natural brown colour.

Fake tanning does not have to be a difficult process. Even if you are new to sunless tanning, there are still many things you can do in order to make it easier. Below is a list of some of the different types of products you can choose:

Gradual Tanners

Gradual tanners are ideal for people who have fair skin. A gradual tanner has a low amount of DHA, which gives you a subtle and gradual tan. It also allows you to have more control over your tan. It will give your skin a natural, sun-kissed look.


Self-tanners can be used on many skin types. It is ideal for people who are looking for a deeper tan. It will take about eight hours for the tan to develop if you use a self-tanner. Your skin will be beautiful and tanned after the top layer is washed off.

If you use a self-tanner, then you can expect it to last five to seven days. The amount of time your self-tanner lasts depends on your lifestyle and routine.

Instant Tans

There are several reasons many people choose to use instant tans. Wash-off tans are great for hot days or unexpected events. If you do not want to wait eight hours for the tan to develop, then you may want to consider using an instant tan. Instant tans are easy to apply. They are also easy to remove.

If you are looking for an instant tan, then you should consider using Classic Foam. Classic Foam is a great product to use if you want a natural, olive-looking tan. You should use gloves or mitts when applying the tanning product. This will prevent stains from developing on your hands. It will also ensure that you have a streak-free application.
