Sunless tanning solutions are used by many people who would like to enjoy the appearance of having been out in the sun without having to endure the potentially very damaging health consequences of spending hours in the sun. Research from the last half-century has revealed the dangers of skin cancer and other conditions, and a sunless self-tanning solution is now part of the beauty kit of many women.[youtube:QtnWmqRaEKw?version=3;[link:Sunless Tanning Lotion Review];http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtnWmqRaEKw?version=3&feature=related]
However, just slapping on some sunless tanning solution does not necessarily guarantee the best effects; like any beauty technique, there are rights and wrongs in the sunless process which can affect the results.
If applying a solution to the legs, then it is best not to have shaved them beforehand, certainly not for several hours anyway. Sensitive skin can become inflamed after shaving and this is only exacerbated by the chemicals in the sunless solution. It is also a good idea to prepare the skin by exfoliating using an exfoliator which contains polyethylene as its main active ingredient.[I:http://cosmoread.com/wp-content/uploads/HaywoodHunter1.jpg]
Never spray the sunless tanning solution directly out of the bottle onto the skin, as this almost guarantees streaking. The best tool to acquire for the sunless tanning process is a small sponge paintbrush.
These are readily available from hardware stores, and are inexpensive. Anyone who is looking to make sunless tanning a regular part of their beauty routine should consider getting hold of one, not least because applying any sort of sunless solution to the back is very tricky indeed without some kind of tool to help.
Another novel way of keeping streaks to a minimum if a sponge paintbrush is not available is to use a wet wipe which has been removed from its packaging and allowed to dry. When sprayed with tanning solution this can also be used to achieve a nice smooth finish on the skin, as long as it is kept damp with frequent sprays of the sunless tanning solution.
With some care and some inexpensive household items, it is possible to use tanning solutions to keep up a bronzed glow for the whole of the winter, even in the deepest, darkest, most sunless months of the year.
