3 Tips for Sunless Tanning in Winter

As our clients stop by for a sunless tan in Overland Park, they often ask us about how they can get the most of their tan. What can be done to ensure that it will look great and last as long as possible? To them, we offer these 3 steps that they, and you, can take to ensure that your tan will look great this winter:

Exfoliate

One of the biggest issues with your skin during the winter is that it will dry out and get scaly. In some places, you may experience greater amounts of pollution that can make your face look dull and gray. Before you head to the tanning bed or get a spray tan, you need to prepare your skin by exfoliating. Find a process that will be soft but effective. You need to remove all the dead skin so the young and vibrant skin underneath can shine through.

 

Moisturize

To counteract the dryness of the winter, you should also moisturize your skin on a regular basis. Not only will it help keep your skin looking its best, but it will help the tan permeate deeper. During the winter, choose oil-based lotions to help protect your skin from the dry conditions. And always remember to apply lotion when you get out of the bath or shower. The water tends to dry skin out even more, so you’ll need the extra help from lotion when you step out of the shower. Pat your skin dry and let the lotion do its job.

Wash

Hopefully, you’re already washing your skin on a regular basis. Make sure to wash your skin before tanning, especially since you should wait at least 3 hours after tanning to wash your skin. Waiting to wash your skin after tanning will help the tan permeate your skin more thoroughly. When it comes to washing your skin, the products are important, too. You should refrain from ones that are made of alcohol or other products that could end up drying out your skin. Fragrant soaps and body washes are known to dry out skin, so you may need to purchase something else to use this winter.

With the help of HD Tanning  and these tips, you can have tan skin throughout the summer. Whether you’re preparing for your upcoming spring break vacation or just want to maintain a sun-kissed look when the weather is dark and gray outside, sunless tanning is a great way to do it. Just make sure to take care of your skin and keep it soft and moist, so it will continue to look its best throughout the year.
