Self-tanning is a great way to reduce the appearance of dark skin, especially if you are one of those folks who always seems to look bad in the dark. The only downside is that it can take up to three weeks to achieve the desired color.
While it can cost you a pretty penny (about $120 a treatment), there are a few ways you can get into the habit of self-tanners…
First of all, do you have a favorite self-tanning product? If so, you can use that as your “go to” product. Second, try using a self-tanning cream that is specifically designed to hide the tan. You can use that to get yourself into the habit of hiding your skin. I personally prefer the Ener-Dry brand because they’re inexpensive, and the ingredients are quite natural.
The most important thing about self-tanning is that it is a natural process, but it does require a fair amount from you. Self-tanners are a lot like sun block, and they also require a fair amount of effort. The best way to avoid having to use a self-tanning product is to never use them.
The self-tanning process is a bit like a vitamin D shot. You want to apply a small amount of sun block to your face to get your tan, then wait and let your skin absorb it. If you use it every day for a month you will have to use more sunscreen, but you can avoid the need for a lot of it with a simple self-tanning regimen.
While you can use a sun block to get that perfect tan, even if you know you’re going to apply it every day, you’re not going to get it. You will, however, have to spend more time in the sun than you would with just sunscreen. I know, I know – you’re probably thinking, “That’s not much time!” Yes, but there is that small window of time when you can get a tan, and then not have to worry about it any longer.
And the small window of time that you are going to get a tan is probably the time when you are going to look like a total ass. This is an important point because if you are using self-tanning lotions and youre only going to wear them if you use them to put on a dress then you’re going to look like a little twat. And that will not help you get your tan. I know, I know, you’ve been reading my blog.
Self-tanning lotions are the same as deodorant lotions in that they make you smell bad. Thats probably why so many people use them. When you are using them to get a tan, you might be able to think of it as being like taking the “clean” off of your skin.
And thats why I use self-tanning lotions. Because I want to look like a little twat. And I want to do it the safe way, so I dont have to put on a dress.
Self-tanning lotions are generally not safe for black skin. Not at all. The way a lotion is made is to dilute your own sweat, and that can make your skin extremely sensitive. You can also get some sort of chemical in the lotion that may irritate your skin, but I dont think this is the case in this case.
