Self-Sun Creams For A Healthy Shine

By Haywood Hunter

Achieving a natural looking glow and maintaining it throughout the year is now easy with the numerous tanning lotions available on the market. Requiring no more effort in their application than is needed to apply any face or body moisturizer, most lotions now offer an even, natural looking color, without the past problems of streaks and un-natural color shades.

There are a lot of good quality products out there and sometimes the decision can be quite difficult. What is crucial to remember is that you should always be looking for the lotion that is closest to your skin shade, in order to achieve the most realistic color.

The celebrity recommended tanning lotions are most often the ones coming in the form of a mousse. Usually the most high-priced self tanners available, mousses ensure easy and fuss free application. This is why they have been a huge success and continue to be widely popular. A tanning mousse offers a realistic sun-kissed color and a striking sparkling glow. It also dries out fast, allowing you to get dressed just after you have applied.

When looking for cosmetic products to give you a fake but realistic tan, then you have to make sure that the tinted moisturizer that you will use on the face, gives a natural looking glow, without streaking, and in a shade that matches your natural skin tone. From the first application of a tinted face moisturizer, you get an immediate tan that lasts for weeks and since they are usually designed to be oil-free, they work perfectly on oily skin. They also dry fast and allow you to apply makeup immediately.

Another option available is the gradual self tanner which usually offers you the choice between two shades. Those of you with medium to dark skin can opt for the darkest shade, whereas people with fair skin can go with the lighter tint. This way, you can find the one that suits you best.

A gradual self tanner, which also leaves your body deeply nourished, is certainly a good idea for your everyday routine. And if you choose one of the most inexpensive products available, then this will make it easy to enjoy a healthy looking color even throughout the winter. For that special outing or the first few days of the summer, you can opt for a more expensive product that will offer you even better results, faster.
