Now, if you went for a tanning session in a luxurious parlor and got your tan under the experts, whether you spent your time under the sun exposure at a beach and got tan, you need to take care of your skin.
I will be sharing some tips with you, which may help you to soothe your skin and keep that tan for a longer period. Because at the end of the day, tanning is not something that heals your skin.
The best lotion to use after spray tan involves moisturizers with shea butter, aloe vera, cocoa butter, coconut oil. You can go for any herbal or chemical free lotion only after some hours of using the spray tan to get the best result, better to avoid lotions with too much chemicals in it.
Don’t be confused; let me clear it up a bit. If you have gone for any method that damaged your skin in some way like sunbathe or sun tanning parlor then your skin may get dehydrated and, as a result, flaky. So you might want to put on moisturizer daily after that if you want your skin to be in good condition.
Now, if you have opted for a method where you have used any kind of sun tanning accelerator, then you have used chemicals to trigger the tan. In that case, you need to avoid any kind of lotion for some hours because the chemicals may react sitting on your skin.
If you have gone for a fake tan or used a product like a spray tan to get a tan, you need to for the product to settle down a bit on your skin. Now the process of settling down may interrupt because of any kind of moisture in that specific period. After that, you can apply any body lotion of your choice.
You need to understand that your skin has gone through many harsh processes because of the getting a tan process already, which may lead to sensitive skin for some days or for some time. So try to avoid any kind of chemicals till your damage is healed and you get the previous skin type.
Wear Loose-Fitting Clothes
Although it may sound unnecessary, it’s good for your skin. Whether you have a fake tan or have a real tan because of chemicals or sunbathe, wearing loose-fitting clothes will surely help you.
Your fake tan may wear off easily because of the friction of the skin and the clothes, and your sensitive skin may need to breathe for a certain period at least.
Please don’t use any kind of scrubber after getting a tan; it will not only help to wear off the tan very quickly, it may damage your skin to a great extent. No matter it’s a physical scrubber or a chemical one, both can be harsh at times.
If you have fake tan on your skin, then after scrubbing, it will become uneven or even just vanish, revealing your real skin color completely.
If that is not the case and you have gone for actual tanning, then also don’t scrub for the first few days and give your skin some time to heal a little bit. Even if you have used the best indoor tingle tanning lotion, you need to give your skin time to heal itself.
You may want to have that sun-kissed glow that you can flaw or may want to show off your shimmery tanned legs, but a process like this may not be friendly to your skin, especially if you are going for it too often. Don’t forget to take care of your skin first.
