A Guide to Self-Tanning

Self-tanners are a great way to look like a sun worshipper without having to partake in the summer pastime. While we think these products are a fantastic method for keeping your skin glowing year-round, application can be a bit tricky to say the least. Birchbox discussed the do’s and don’ts of the quick glo process with Sinead Norenius, celebrity spray tan artist and Editor-In-Chief of the blog Self Tanning Queen. With all the various lotions, mousses, gels and glo pads to choose from, Norenius recommends that newbies, “Pick a product with a guide color, or a light tint, so that you can see where the color is going.” Norenius highly suggests that users exfoliate their skin before application so that it will prevent fading and splotching as well as prolong your tan. Additionally, she advises others to put lotion in dry spots like elbows and knees to prevent oversaturation in those areas. Norenius also suggests that people apply tanners before bed so that the color can set overnight.
