Tips for faking a natural tan

Come summertime, one of your biggest beauty challenges is maintaining a tan without damaging your skin. But with the right combination of skincare and cosmetics, it's possible to get that coveted glow without laying out in the sun.

The proper application of a good bronzer can do wonders for making your face look naturally tan. But some people might prefer a more moisturizing formula – like the Sun Self-Tanning Milk by G.M. Collin. This ultra-light lotion absorbs into the skin quickly, and contains seven herbal extracts. Over time, not only will you build up an even, long-lasting tan, but your skin will feel softer and more hydrated. 

Another option for a darker tint is Self-Tanning Fluid from Babor. A powerful combination of nutrients and minerals leaves skin nearly flawless, while also making it stronger and more resilient. The multi-protection properties of this formula boost the skin's natural defense systems so that it's more resistant to photo-aging.

If you're looking for something a little more advanced – check out being TRUE – The Kit by True Cosmetics. This complete, all-inclusive kit is great for traveling to your next summer getaway, and it includes two universal shades of Protective Mineral Foundation with SPF 17, Mineral Mist Bronze Blush, a compact all-purpose brush, finishing sponge, quick tips booklet and a cosmetic case.

With every application, you'll get a deeper pigment while also protecting your skin long-term.

Do you know how to create a flawless faux tan?

Now that beach season has arrived, it's time to start putting in the effort to look your best as you show more skin. With your Exuviance skincare products and summer-inspired makeup, you can revamp your appearance in time for the changing seasons. 

If you're interested in adding color to your skin, you might want to consider using a spray tanner or tanning lotion. However, it's important to exercise patience and take precautionary measures into account before applying these products to your body. Failing to do so can result in orange skin or an uneven faux tan.

To ensure that you get the results you want, O! The Oprah Magazine recommends only going two shades darker than your natural skin tone. This will give you a flawless look that truly seems like you spent a little time under the sun. Elle magazine states that you can also make sure that your tan looks beautiful by exfoliating your skin beforehand, giving yourself a clean palette to start.

If you're in doubt about your tanning abilities, don't hesitate to contact a professional to give you the beautiful glow you desire.

Simple tips for giving yourself a fresh look

How long has it been since you changed up your eyeliner application technique? Are you still wearing the same lipstick shades from three years ago? If so, these are all red flags that signify that you could use a makeover! Even if you've never tried one on yourself before, there's no better time than the present to revamp your makeup routine. In the end, you'll have a fresh look that will turn heads every time you walk down the street.

To begin, recommends refraining from bold lip colors, especially if you've leaned toward more vibrant hues in the past. In actuality, the most helpful tactic you can use on yourself during your makeover is to strip yourself of overbearing makeup. A more natural look may be just what you need to give yourself a revitalized appearance.

Next, think about giving your skin a little color through sunless tanning. The Gloss claims that this can be one of the easiest ways to give yourself a new look, and you won't have to damage your skin with ultraviolet rays to do so.

Finally, don't hesitate to pamper yourself. Make it a point to get your nails done or have your hair cut. In the end, you'll feel better inside and out!

Sunless tans can keep you healthy and gorgeous

Spring isn't here just yet, but you may already be breaking out your summer makeup collection and hoping for sunnier days. Many people look forward to warm weather and believe it gives them the chance to wear fun colors on their clothing and skin. Specifically, beach bodies can't wait to hit the sand and catch some rays. However, it's no secret that the sun can do an ample amount of damage to your skin.

Sure, you'll look stunning with a little bit of color in your skin, but is it worth raising your risk of cancer? That being said, sunless tans are becoming a more popular alternative to baking yourself under the sun. As the Mayo Clinic states, sunless tanning products are effective and safe as long as they're used according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Additionally, they give users some advantages over traditional tanning. Daily Glow claims that these products can be a viable way to achieve an even tan – no rolling or turning over under the sun! Furthermore, it's more convenient to use this option if you live in a region that doesn't get much sun. Just remember that you still need to use sunscreen to keep your skin protected after faux tanning!

Why you should give sunless tanners a shot

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Tan without the damage.Summertime seems like a great excuse to be a sun goddess, but spending long hours soaking up the rays is damaging to your skin – and we're not just talking about your vanity. Yes, excessive sunbathing can lead to wrinkles and sun spots, but it can also lead to more serious conditions – like skin cancer. If you want to get a bronzed glow but don't want to ruin your skin, consider sunless tanning!

The days of orange, streaky tans are gone. These days, sunless tanners are sophisticated, easy to apply and will leave you with a natural golden glow with none of the negative side effects. Choose from towelettes, lotions and sprays – each will give you a beautiful tan that won't stain your clothes or wash off in the shower. Sunless tanning products contain a chemical that reacts with the outer layer of your skin, causing it to darken temporarily. Gradually, as the outer layer of your skin sloughs off, you'll lose the sunless tan – just like you'd lose a real one.

Before you apply a sunless tanning product, you should exfoliate your skin to make sure you have an even surface to work with. After you apply, be sure to wash your hands or you could end up with dark brown palms.

If you still want to hit the beach with your friends, choose a sunless tanning product that also contains sunscreen. Apply it before you hit the beach, and your friends will be amazed how quickly your tan develops! They'll never know it's not real.

Snag Ashley Greene’s golden glow with a sunless tanner

Snag Ashley Greene's golden glow with a sunless tannerAshley Greene plays the alabaster-skinned vampire Alice Cullen in the hugely popular Twilight films, and anyone who has seen the movies is likely to understand why the lovely lady was recently named one of People Magazine’s most beautiful women in the world.

However, when she stepped onto the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” she was far from pasty. Instead, Greene sported a healthy golden glow that enhanced her natural beauty.

It was refreshing to see the performer with a sun-kissed appearance, rather than her typical pallor. And, we really like that the actress didn’t go over-the-top and turn herself orange in her pursuit of a tan.

Women who would like to snag a similar look for themselves could try sunless tanners, which allow them to appear as if they spent the day poolside, without exposing their skin to the harmful rays of the sun.

Too Faced‘s Tanning Bed In A Tube is a sunless tanner that enables women to obtain an instant tint to their skin, which they can gradually build on over time.

In addition, the product features a pina colada scent, rather than the harsh chemical smell of some drug-store brands.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19862121-ADNFCR
