Spray Tanning : Get A Beautiful Tan Minus The Health Risk

May 10, 2008
Sun worshipers that cannot afford to be on a permanent vacation can now use tanning booths whenever they wish to maintain that golden brown look. However, with more and more research coming out on the dangers and the risk of skin cancer, some are now turning to alternatives to the dangerous skin damaging practice. Across America (and other countries) there has been in increase in artificial techniques with spray tanning high up on that list. Although bronzing agents have been around for many years, they tend to leave streak marks unless professionally applied.

There are manufacturers now that offer spray tans that you can apply yourself. Whatever type of fake tan you intend to use as a regular method, there are a number of things that can help to make it last longer and improve the look. Probably the most important aspect and the first one to carry out is getting rid of the dead skin on your body by exfoliating. Fake tan applications that have been done without this vital step are easy to spot as the recipient has light patches in the tan where the dead skin has fallen of.

Once this process is complete, it is advisable to prepare your skin further by applying a moisturizing cream (or lotion) to it which will make the agent easier to apply. Always, always, always wear disposable surgical gloves when applying a self tanning cream etc. unless you want people to see the orange palms which you will most certainly have when you have finished. To avoid any other application mistakes that could give away the fact that the tan is not real, make sure those fingers, feet, elbows and knees are only given the lightest of coats as they have a habit of coming out darker. Even spray tanning can cause the odd problem if there is an excess and it starts to run so take a towel you no longer want with you to wipe it off.

It is also advisable to remain as motionless as possible whilst the self tanning agent dries; this shouldn't take too long but it will improve the effect. Consider what you are going to wear once you have applied the fake tan as it tends to stain objects, in particular clothing.

The best advice here is to have a change of clothing that is darker than the color of the tan as this way it will not notice. Armed with this information it should be easier to have a fake tan that is safe and available all year round without anyone knowing what it is you are doing.
