While you can make your way to your local tanning salon, soaking up much of the UV rays could spell out as a disaster for you.

Tanning beds, and even sunbathing, makes use of UV rays to help get you the shade of bronze that you desire. Not to worry, you can make use of self tanners to keep the summer glow as radiant as it can be.

Self tanners, while dubbed as fake tan due to their tanning properties not needing the aid of a sun or UV rays, they’re one of the healthiest approach to tanning. One company even makes use of organic and natural ingredients to getting a tan while you can even make your own homemade self tan with tea and coffee.

Whichever is your source of a self tan, it’s one of the best ways to keep your bronze shade through the colder months.

While dabbing on a bronzer is one thing, you may also want to remember some of these tips to make your bronze shade last:

– Hydrate your skin. Don’t ever skip on putting on moisturizers. Dry skin tends to peel off easily and this means peeling off the layer of tan that you’ve worked so hard to get.

– Avoid the beach or the pool. The bleach will easily lighten up your skin tone while the salt in the sea water is guaranteed to dry your skin up.

– Don’t hesitate to exfoliate your skin when you can. Exfoliating your skin can help you clear the layer of dirt and dead skin cells. While this may sound like scrubbing a layer off of tan, clearing the impurities gives way to younger and more radiant skin. This also gives a better palette for your next self tanning session.
