The age of the mirrored sun reflector, held gingerly beneath one’s face as the summer sun streaks across an afternoon sky have thankfully long since passed. But, folks can agree, a summer glow that deepens your natural shade just so is universally becoming. That’s not to say that tanning is for everyone, quite the opposite. On the spectrum of skin color, tanning benefits a certain range of shades. If your summer isn’t complete without deepening the shade of your skin, regardless of your base color, finding the safest, most attractive tanning routine for your summer skin is an imperative.
Spray tanning has widely become the safest and easiest way to fake a summer glow. Today, professional spray tanning services can be found in places beyond than the local tanning salon. Many gyms offer spray tanning rooms, and lots of spray tan specialists can set up shop in your own home, offering a luxury experience.
Drugstore and department store brands of self-tanner run the gamut from misters to lotions to tanner-saturated towelettes. Finding the right self-tanner for your skin tone takes a bit of trial and error, so when trying a new product, make sure to do a spot test in an area that is not regularly exposed.
Beta carotene supplements can help boost your skin’s natural defense against UV rays, increasing your ability to achieve smooth even tans.
