How Does Self Tanner Work?
Increasingly, men and women are turning away from tanning beds and sunbathing due to concerns about the long-term effects of UV exposure on their skin. If you're among them, you don't have to give up having glowing, golden skin in order to ensure your safety. Self tanners can recreate the look of a natural tan with no sun required. CVS can help you find the right self tanner for your needs with a huge selection of products that you can shop online.
Why Use Self Tanner?
Tanning occurs when the sun's ultraviolet (UV) energy triggers the production of a pigment called melanin in the skin. While the results of this natural process may be attractive, exposing your skin to UV can have short-term and long-term consequences. Sunbathing and using tanning beds can result in painful inflammation of the skin called sunburn. Over time, tanning can make you more likely to get certain types of skin cancer and to develop fine lines and wrinkles at an early age.
How Long Does Self Tanner Last?
Expect the results of your self-tanner to last up to 10 days, although results vary by product. The more you sweat, swim and do other things that cause skin cells to shed, the faster your self-tanning product fades.
How To Apply Self Tanner?
No matter which product you choose to get your skin looking beach-ready without the sun, the key to a natural-looking tan from a self-tanner is to exfoliate the skin first to remove dry skin, especially in areas such as ankles, wrists, elbows and knees. If these areas aren't properly exfoliated first, they may bind with more product than the rest of the skin, resulting in dark spots. Exfoliate the skin using a bath accessory, such as a washcloth or bath pouf, dry the skin with a towel, and wait at least 15 minutes before using a self-tanner.
To apply the product, follow the package instructions. It can be helpful to work in sections, starting with the legs, then the torso, then the arms. For lotions, rub the product on with a circular motion. Mist on spray products, and then rub for even distribution. For wipes, just wipe the product on the area to be treated.
When applying self-tanner on the elbows, ankles, wrists and knees — areas that absorb more self-tanning product — dilute the formula by rubbing a damp towel on the area right after application.
No matter the product, immediately and thoroughly wash your hands with jabón and water after application. If possible, wash your hands after applying the product to each section (legs, torso, arms). Otherwise, you may develop hard-to-remove brown or orange streaks on the palms of your hands.
Wait at least 10 to 15 minutes after applying self-tanner before getting dressed. For a few hours after application, wear loose-fitting clothing, and avoid getting hot and sweaty.
How to Remove Self Tanner
Self-tanners gradually fade as the skin's cells are sloughed away. You can speed up the process by using an exfoliating body scrub. To remove small areas of self-tanning product from the palms of your hands, rub your hands with baby oil prior to bathing.
