The number one beauty rule is without a doubt to stay out of the sun. We know that the damage we incur from sunburn only show up at a later stage, which makes avoiding the rays an investment in our beautiful future selves.
There is, however, nothing that embraces summer more than a bronze sun-kissed glow. It looks healthy and makes you feel fabulous too, and even though self-tanning products offer a sunless solution, it is rather tricky to get it right.
Preparation is key to successful application. Exfoliate and moisturise the skin thoroughly. Apply the product in circular motions, ensuring that all surfaces of the skin is covered. Take special care around bumpy areas such as the ankles, knees and elbows to ensure that no excess product is left around those areas, as it will result in darker patches.
Apply product moderately to gauge the effect of the tint. If a darker colour is required, apply again after 2 days. Too much too soon never seems natural. Happy Bronzing!
