Also, people have many responsibilities and chores they have to attempt whether at work or at home. These are some of the reasons why people are turning to spray tan or fake tan to get the bronze color they desire. However, spray tanning can be quite tricky for you to apply, it can also be messy. If you don’t apply the tan properly, you may end up with orange, brown, or yellow skin. You could also stain your clothes and bed sheets. If you are going to spray tan yourself, you want to avoid applying moisturizer before the tan. Of course, you want to clean and exfoliate, but don’t put on that moisturizer because it can affect how the spray tan adheres to the skin creating streaks on your body. You may consider mixing both the moisturizer and spray tan then apply onto the skin. However, there is an exception here, you can apply a cream or moisturizer on underneath the eyes. When you apply spray tan over the face, it can cause the parts underneath the eye to become darker making you look older or tired. You can beat this by applying some cream or moisturizer underneath both eyes. Also, don’t forget to shave before you tan – do it an hour before applying the spray tan.

Why Do People Tan?

By on Jun 9, 2016 in Blog |

Tanning has become a trend since Jersey Shore became a huge hit, but why exactly do people want to have a darker color? Some say it is associated to class and affluence, others— like the great Mark Twain—believe that tanned skin can be associated with health while pale skin is equal to sickness. According to a study from Emory University, having a tan makes a person feel sexier. Using HotorNot.com, an attractiveness-rating website, the researchers gauged “hotness” scores of the same woman with her natural complexion and tanned skin color. Doing the same process in 45 images of women aged 21 to 35 years old, the researchers discovered that the tanned version of the women are “twice as likely” to be considered attractive. This explains why people—mostly women—often go to tanning salons and spas to achieve a color they were not born with. However, Dr. Audrey Kunin, a dermatologist and the founder of DERMADoctor Inc. revealed that there may be negative implications to artificial tanning. According to her, people believe that being tanned become more attractive and healthier-looking but the truth is, they are only doing it to impress other people. “It’s incredibly difficult to get someone not to do something that they perceive as providing them with a positive perception. It was the same thing with smoking. Especially younger people have a hard time seeing themselves as getting older and having to deal with these risks,” she said. Even so, if tanning can boost a person’s self-esteem and get her to a certain amount of confidence that could win her happiness, there is no point in preventing her from doing it. Just remember: whatever your reason for acquiring a tan may be, make sure that you do it because you want to feel good about yourself and not just to satisfy anybody. After all, you are your own woman and you are beautiful no matter what your...
