And better yet, you can lessen your exposure to damaging sun rays too, while still looking healthily bronzed, with the use of a sunless tanning lotion. With so many products available these days, you can take your pick.
The variety and brand names can seem endless. And while all of them do the same thing — provide you with a lovely tan appearance — there are some variations to the products. Some have lovely smells like coconuts or perfume. Some contain special moisturizing ingredients and sun screen to protect from the inevitable exposure to the sun even if you’re not laying out. And others, still, include calming ingredients like aloe vera, just in case you end up out in the sun a little longer than you expected.
It doesn’t take long to notice results. Usually within a few hours of first applying it, you’re skin will look darker. You control how dark you get by the amount of product you use, and how often you use it. If your skin is normally sensitive, you might play it safe by testing a small area. Not only can you protect against an allergic reaction, but you can see if you like the coloring effect in a small area before you apply it all over.
When applying the lotion, you’ll want it to go on evenly for a more natural-looking result. If you apply to much or too little to an area, it will be lighter or darker than the other areas, causing a splotchy or streaked effect. Some people wear cotton or latex gloves to keep the palms of their hands from coloring. Small sponges can be used, too. Pay attention to areas that don’t normally tan and try to avoid them if possible.
There are special products available specifically for the face. Because the face has more exposure to the sun normally, it may darken quicker than other parts of the body that are usually more concealed. Also, special moisturizers are in facial products which can help smooth out the lines and wrinkles.
Use caution if you wear a bathing suit of other clothing when you apply your tan, because the ingredient that darkens your skin will also stain your fabric. In effect, you are temporarily dying your skin. The dye adheres to dead skin cells, so it’s important to wash and exfoliate before applying the lotion to remove excess dead cells from the usual dry skin areas of the body. Otherwise, they will absorb more of the darkening ingredient, resulting in uneven coloring.
When the first sunless tanning products came out on the market several years ago, the results were often laughable. People who used them stood out, not because they looked as if they just came from a holiday on the beaches in the South of France, but because they appeared freakishly orange. The products have evolved and improved drastically since the early days, with far more natural-looking results. So as some ejaculation problems as well.
Paying more for a sunless tanning lotion won’t mean that you end up with a better result. There are some inexpensively priced products on the market that have shown excellent results, so be sure to do your research and shop around.
