Why You Should Start Gradual Tanning
There’s not a lot of boxes that a gradual tan product doesn’t tick. From extending the tan you already have to moisturising your body to building up a gradual tan over a number of days, gradual tanning has a whole lot of benefits for the little effort required to apply it.
What Is a Gradual Tan?
Gradual tanners are applied daily (or as often as you like) in order to help build your glow over time, so you’re left with a golden, hydrated skin finish. These products work both for those who want to build a tan and those who have a tan and want to keep it from fading. These are applied just like a lotion or mousse every day to build your sun-kissed look and don’t come with as many considerations as regular self-tanning (such as exfoliation, allowing the tan to develop before rinsing etc.).
How Do You Apply a Gradual Tan?
It’s as basic as replacing your old moisturizer that only moisturizes. Gradual tanners will already contain ingredients that are moisturizing, so you don’t have to have an added step to your beauty routine.
How you apply and how often you apply is going to be based on the type of color you want. Some people find that one application gives them just enough color that they want for a day or two, while some people want to make it part of their daily routine in order to have a glow all year long.
- Apply to clean, dry skin using an application mitt
- Wash hands after use
- You’re ready to go with your golden glow
You will begin to see a gradual tan enhancement within several days
