Are you excited to do self tanning? Have you done exfoliating, shaving or waxing? One of the most important and ‘must do’ regimen before performing self tanning is to shave the hair of your skin or do waxing before you apply your preferred tanning mediums. This is very important if you want to achieve a flawless and long lasting result. Here are some pros of shaving or waxing before putting your self tanning products.
- The hairs on your skin are one of the hindrances in achieving a smooth and even application of self tanning products on your body. Imagine a single hair or too much hair that cover your skin when you spread your tanning lotion, oil, gel, cream or whatever tanning product you have. It covers some portion of the skin and it leaves thin strands of unapplied part of your skin. If you try to apply the second time around to cover the unapplied skin, the skin that has been coated during the first apply will get another coating, thus it creates a darker one while the uncovered skin on the first application is lighter. This causes uneven or stripy result of tanning. Therefore, it is recommended to shave or wax first before you do self tanning to avoid this unpleasant result. Perhaps tanning salons will suggest that too before they will assist you.
- Shaving or waxing after tanning application is not good at all. When you shave or wax after applying, it wipes away the self tanning product you have applied because it goes away with the shave or wax. Thus, shaving or waxing at least 6 hours before applying your favorite tanning product is most recommended. After shaving, do not wait for 48 hours before you apply your tanner because as everybody knows, hair grows as fast as one day especially if you frequently shave. So it is best recommended to do waxing if you want a longer and more effective result because it pulls out the hair from the root, thus it takes at least two weeks before the hair becomes visible again.
- Exfoliating is another vital regimen before coating your body with self tanner. Dead skin cells or skin stains should be removed first before applying the self tanner to avoid streaky result. Shaving or waxing is an effective addition on exfoliating because as you shave or wax, the dirt or stains on the skin goes with the shave or wax.
