Fair Skinned Beauties
Tanning pale skin is a little tricky, but it is not impossible. If you are careful and use the right products, you can achieve the bronzed glow you are looking for. Here are some helpful tanning tips for fair-skinned beauties.
If you want an even and natural looking tan, it is important to exfoliate your skin beforehand. Exfoliating your skin will get rid of the dead skin cells, helping the self-tanning product go on more evenly. In the shower, just gently massage the exfoliating product all over your skin.
Shave the Day Before
It is also a wise idea to shave the day before you apply a self-tanning product. Shaving the hair from your skin will give you a smooth finish to work with.
Moisturise Your Skin
Before you apply your self-tanner, apply some moisturiser to your skin, especially on your elbows and knees. A good moisturiser will help soften your skin and make the self-tanner go on evenly.
Use the Right Self-Tanning Product
When your skin is pale, it is very important to use the correct self-tanning product. For example, if you have some red or ivory undertones, you can use MineTans ‘Be Brazilian’ 1-Hour Express Tan. It does not have any red or gold undertones, so your tan will not look orange. If your skin has some yellow or olive undertones, you should try Exotic European’ 1-Hour Express Tan. This self-tanner contains violet undertones, so it can give you a nice brown tan.
Do it Gradually
If you have pale skin, it is better to use a gradual self-tanner. A gradual self-tanner is not as harsh and will take you just one to two shades darker at first.
Apply Petroleum Jelly to Your Nails
Self-tanning products can easily get on your nails and cause stains. That is why you should apply petroleum jelly to your fingernails and toenails before you use the self-tanning product. It will act as a barrier and prevent the self-tanner from staining your nails.
If you follow these helpful tips, you will apply the self-tanner evenly. Your skin will look beautiful and bronzed afterward.
