Cosmetics for tanning: what means to choose?
Tanning or tanning? For those who do not like tanning beds, and are also afraid of sunburn and pigmentation, there is a safer way to give the skin a golden hue with the help of special cosmetics. At the same time, in order to achieve a natural effect, it is important to know how to choose and apply such cosmetics that you can buy.
A quick way to get an instant tan is using a bronzer. It is also a good solution to add radiance to the skin or a very gentle touch of the sun. Solid bronzer - the best option for beginners, in turn, people are more advanced in the technique of makeup, can take up a pencil or cosmetic liquid consistency. Bronzer is not powder, so in addition to the brush, you also need a little knowledge of contouring techniques. But, if you learn to skillfully use this tool, you can work wonders.
BB creams are rarely used as tanning, but they cope with this task. You will need to buy BB - cream one tone darker than the skin. Apply a thin layer to face, ears, neck and decollete. However, despite all the advantages of such a remedy, BB cream is not an option for the summer season when most of the body is open.
Now many well-known cosmetic companies offer avozagar in the form of drops. The cosmetic product resembles a serum due to the particular mode of application. Drops from the ampoule or dispenser should be rubbed into the skin. It is also possible the combination of drops with body cream or substrate, thereby reducing the time of application, and the effect is more natural.
To avoid the appearance of stains, self-tanning should be applied to pre-moistened skin. If depilation is required, self-tanning is applied after the procedure. Some bronzers stain clothes, so after applying you should wait an hour or wear a dress in a dark color.
The gel, as well as drops, because of its consistency very well with the skin and can be used as a base for makeup. Does not form stains and gives a gentle tanning effect.It is absorbed very quickly, therefore it is more suitable for the face than for the body - in the case of application to large areas of the body, it is rather difficult to achieve the desired effect.
Anti-wrinkle cream with tanning effect
These are in the range of most manufacturers, although they appear on the shelves only in the spring. Their great advantage is ease of use. The cream is applied to the face every day, so no additional actions are necessary during the morning rush. Unfortunately, this method is not recommended for people with oily or problem skin, because the cream can block the pores and leave a brilliant effect. Prices vary by manufacturer.
Napkins for tanning
Napkins are an ideal tool that you can take with you on a journey, small and comfortable. It seems that using them is very simple, but, unfortunately, without the proper skills, it is easy to make the skin striped. Therefore, it is better to consider them as a road remedy for emergency cases, and in the future to apply a good tanning - a balm. One napkin is enough for face or leg (approximately), so you should immediately consider buying a few pieces.
Moisturizing balm with the effect of tanning
Its main task is to moisturize the body, and the additional effect is the tanning effect. This method is a good idea to start experiments with means for tanning, as it gives a very thin, sometimes hardly noticeable effect. The advantage here are several interrelated actions in the same cosmetic. It is not always moisturizing, balm can also be with firming or regenerating properties.
"Black Balsam" for tanning
The effect of the cosmetic is different from the classic tanning, “Black Balsam” has a dark brown shade and resembles chocolate. It is applied in the evening on the whole body, and in the morning they wash off the first dark layer under the shower. During the night, the skin absorbs the ingredients of the cosmetics and after the shower a slightly darker shade is obtained. “Black Balsam” has two advantages: after the morning shower it does not pollute the clothes and gives a uniform tan effect, which persists for several days.
It can be purchased at any pharmacy. This is an oil with golden grains, which is rubbed into cleansed skin. A few hours after using the oil, the skin looks slightly tanned.The use is not simple and clothes can be easily stained, therefore it should be applied very carefully.
This is the favorite makeup of many women, because it gives the effect of smooth legs and a solid, even tone. Keeps on the skin all day, and then it can be washed off with soap and water. This is the perfect method for an evening out or the first days of summer, when you can already go outside in a light, short dress.
Natural substances with a bronzer effect:
- soybean oil,
- Oak bark,
- sunflower flower oil,
- macadamia nut oil.
It must be remembered that tanning gives an effect that is close, but not identical to natural tan. In the beginning it is better to try light cream or bronzers of very light shades. This should be done on a small area of skin to ensure that there is no allergic reaction. The disadvantage of tanning is also a specific smell, which just does not suit everyone.
How to quickly tan? It all depends on the chosen method and manufacturer. Some of the popular products give a quick effect on tanned skin, but do not last long. Others act differently - you need to wait for the result, but the brown color remains on the skin for several days.
