How to apply a fake tan

Hey everyone,

Self tanning is the best and healthiest way to give yourself a little more color in your face. Its very handy for the winter because you dont get much sun and for those days your not looking your best. You've probably heard stories from other girls who applied their self tanner and that it didn't go so well. But with these tips you won't get an orange glow on your face. I can guarantee you it will look just as a real tan! 

How to apply a fake tan

1. Take care of your skin. The first thing that you have to do, even if you don't want to apply self tanner is keeping your skin in a good condition. Eat healthy, eat lots of vegetables, fruit and drink a lot of water to keep your skin hydrated. Wash your skin everyday and put a cream on afterwards. It will prevent you face from getting dry, because when your face gets dry it's easier to get wrinkles. And that's not what you want right!? 

2. Exfoliate. The second thing you have to do is to exfoliate your face and neck. The best time you can apply it is in the evening before you go to bed. I often scrub my face with the scrub from Loreal. It's very good and you can also use it for your body. Which I think is very handy. And than get a good night rest.

3. In the morning wash your face and neck with a good cream cleanser. This will make it easier to apply your face tan. A good cleanser is from Clinique. I use it a lot and it's very good for your skin. 

4. Dry your face. After you washed and cleaned your face, wait about 20 minutes before applying your face tan.

5. Apply your face tan. Apply your tanner on your face, and try to use small amounts. You can apply it just the way you would apply a normal moisturizer on your face. And try to blend it outwards of your face. You don't have to come very close to the eye area. Try to avoid that as much as possible.

6. Wash your hands. Wash your hands with soap so they don't turn orange. And than the only thing you have to do now is waiting. It usually takes up from 5-8 hours before you see the result. But it's definately worth you while. :)
