Spray Tanning Tips for Effective Sunless Tanning

Sunless Tanners

Applying sunless tanning products is a safe way to get the desired skin shade without exposing it to the

harsh rays of the sun. However, to achieve a natural tan with sunless tanners, you need to apply them to

all areas of your body.


This especially applies to your feet and ankles. Here are a few tanning tips to help you out.


Start by exfoliating the feet and ankles to smooth them and remove dead cells. Massage thoroughly

before washing off the scrub. Next, apply a thin layer of moisturizer in the entire area and the tanner

will only cover the top of the feet. If you exfoliate the complete feet area and then coat them, the

moisture will be retained for long.


Now rub together small quantities of sunless tanner and moisturizer in your hands and apply the sunless

tanner to the ankles, working the entire area going all the way down to the feet. The foot area only

contains the top, and you should not apply the tanner to the heel, to the sides of the foot and the in

between the toes.


Wash your hands and rub a little moisturizer on your palms. Apply the edges of the sunless tanner on

the top of your foot in downward strokes on the sides of the feet, on the toes, and the heels as well.

Finally, remove any sunless tanner from the dry areas such as the sides of the feet, toes, and the heels.


Once the tanner dries, spot any places where you have missed and apply a reasonable mixture of tanner

and moisturizer. Use these tanning tips to derive maximum benefit from sunless tanners.


Sunless Tanning Sprays

Sunless tanning sprays, or the fake tan sprays as they are called, are FDA approved products. Although

applying these products is simple, here are some tanning tips for using fake sprays.


To begin with, you need to choose the right the color for your skin as well as the correct tone such as

light, medium, dark. Next, exfoliate your skin as before using a body scrub. If you are a female, take a

new razor and shaving cream to shave the legs.


Wash and dry your skin with a towel for 15 minutes or until completely dry. Take a small quantity of

moisturizer and rub on your hands, elbows, knees, and ankles, as they are dry areas of the body. Open

the can, and from a distance of about 10 inches from your skin, press down the nozzle and lightly spray

the arm until completely covered. Do this with the rest of your body.


You can ask someone to perform the procedure on your back. To apply the spray on your neck and face,

spray on your hands and quickly pat in on the select areas.


Finally, wash hands immediately after you are done and avoid taking a shower for a couple of hours. Use

these spray tanning tips for future application as well.


Airbrush Tanners

Airbrush kits are yet another safe alternative for sunless tanning. A typical airbrush kit comes with an air

compressor, tubes, and spray nozzle, and its application mostly works in the same way as fake tan spray

cans, i.e. you exfoliate your skin and apply lotion before spraying and keep the nozzle at a distance.


Mostly importantly, either stand completely nude or wear dark colored swimwear when applying

airbrush tanners. If you wear any clothing, it can be ruined permanently. So remember these spray

tanning tips to darken your skin without having to sit under the sun.
