|锘? It s summer time ladies and I know most of you have spent the last couple of months working to build up that perfect tan for that special day when you have to get into your swimsuit for the first time and make your debut in front of the world. I know that sounds dramatic but isn t it true? The last thing we want is embarrass ourselves Ryan Tannehill Dolphins Jersey , friends, family, andor children by going out looking like a ghost, like our skin has never seen the light of day. If you are busy like me and haven t had the time to build up that perfect tan and need a quick fix before that fabulous vacation you have been oh so needing in a week, there are some great new healthy ways to get that natural sun kissed look we want without the risk of getting a nasty burn. As a Plus Size Model it is unacceptable for me to show up to a shoot sunburn or with crazy tan lines, so I have learned many ways to getting a quick, safe, and natural looking tan.
As women we all have different skin types and our skin is very important to us, so we must take time to nurture it with a daily skincare regimen. Whether it s a variety of different products and steps in your regimen or as simple as a daily moisturizer we have become more educated and aware of the fact that the sun does in fact damage our skin and cause premature aging and serious diseases such as skin cancer. As a result of this we are now having to take precautionary measures like applying sunscreen daily before heading outdoors and even limiting our sun exposure as much as possible. Because of these serious risks many of us are giving up on tanning altogether and I am here to tell you that there is still hope.
In this article I am going to share with you a variety of tanning options that are out there today besides the traditional sun bathing. Tanning options ranging from sunless tanning products or self tanners, the spray tanners mystic vs. airbrush tan, and commercial tanning beds. This will give you a breakdown on what they are and do exactly so that you can figure out what is best for you and your budget.
Sunless tanning products, self tanners, or tanning extenders: These home products are generally available over the counter and can give your skin a tanned look without exposing it to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and are commonly sold as creams, gels Jay Ajayi Dolphins Jersey , lotions and sprays you apply to your skin. The active ingredient in most sunless tanning products is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). Sunless tanning products typically go on clear, and you might see results after about an hour. Full color appears within eight to 24 hours. Some products contain a tint, which darkens
your skin right away. When applied to your skin, DHA reacts with dead cells in the outermost layer of skin to temporarily darken the skin s appearance. The coloring doesn t wash off, but it gradually fades as the dead skin cells slough off. In most cases, the color is completely gone after five to seven days. Prices for these products range from $6 to $37.

Today sunless tanning products no longer leave you with an orange brown, streaky looking tan but leave you with a even, natural look if applied correctly and carefully. To achieve the best sunless tan, follow these tips I found helpful:
* Choose a product that is 1 to 2 shades darker than your natural skin tone so at first your tan looks more natural. Remember you can always go darker the second time around.
* Before using the product, wash and exfoliate your skin to remove excess dead skin cells. Women should shave their legs prior for an even application.
* Always do a spot check to make sure the color is right and that you do not have any sensitivity to the product
* Apply the sunless tanning product evenly and lightly. Use less product on dry skin or thickened skin, such as over your ankles, knees and elbows. These areas tend to absorb more product.
* After you apply the product to your face and body, wash your hands immediately to avoid coloring to your palms. Be sure to remove any product from under your fingernails. Then use a cotton ball to apply the sunless tanner to the top of each hand.
* To prevent staining your clothes, wait to dress until the sunless tanner dries completely Womens Kiko Alonso Jersey , about 15 to 20 minutes.
Mystic, Airbrush tanning: This service is offered generally at a tanning salon or spa and is applied to all parts of your body including your face to ensure an even color. Like the products above both options are UV free and dermatologist recommended.The Mystic tanning is a process that lasts less than a minute where you stand in a booth and listen to a voice command that leads you through the process which sprayers shoot out an Aloe Vera based self tanner, evenly all over your body and dries instantly. With Airbrush tanning session an associate at the facility sprays your body with sunless tanner and is able to tailor the color to your distinct liking. This process takes less than 10 minutes and you are able to leave immediately after. The spray solution is typically made up of Aloe Vera, Vitamin E & C, Bronzer, and DHA. Whether you prefer to do it yourself or not both are great ways to get a quick sun kissed look for up to 7 days. There is some maintenance to these processes as you are to shower and exfoliate prior to your session, you must not have on any oils, perfumes, or deodorant, after your session you must not shower or sweat for up to 8 hours, and lastly it is imperative to moisturize twice a day to ensure that your tan lasts. These sessions can cost anywhere from $25 $60
