What to Know About Choosing a Self-Tanning Lotion, Stillwater, Oklahoma

Self-tanning lotion provides that perfect back-from-vacation look without the time or effort of traditional tanning methods. However, for best results, you need to choose a high-quality lotion that applies evenly and is the right shade. With that in mind, here are a few tips for finding a tanning solution that will have you glowing with happiness inside and out.

Guide to Finding Your Self-Tanning Lotion

How to Find the Right Shade

Some cheap tanning lotions have an unfortunate reputation for giving the skin an unnatural orange or yellow color. To avoid this problem, look for one with an olive-green tone. Most lotions have a bronzer in them, so check this amount as well. For a darker color, look for a higher value such as 30x. Use 10x for a more subtle change. Also keep in mind that some lotions have glitter in them, which gives your skin some extra sparkle immediately after application. If this is what you want, then choose one of the bottles labeled “shimmer.”

How to Get an Even Color

While professional spray tans will give you an even application, spraying yourself can cause you to miss areas of skin or apply too much in one spot. Instead, use a lotion and work it thoroughly into your body. Not only is it a generally more-forgiving process, but there are specialty lotions you can buy containing a temporary dye which allows you to see which areas you might have overlooked.
