Yay!

Summer is here… You know what that means right …glow up. Yes girl, the glow is real during summer.

There is nothing as sexy as tanned skin. A) It makes you look younger and B) You feel sexier (and slimmer).

But you know there are secrets to getting the best tan ever right?! Natural or faux, whether it takes you forever to tan or you get tanned easily but the glow barely lasts.. with these secret tips, your tan has never looked better.

How to get the perfect tan

4 steps you must know

Exfoliate

Why? Exfoliating regularly avoids build up or to prevent the dead skin from blocking the rays.

Not exfliating before tanning will result in an uneven tan. Not cute. Also your tan will fade faster.

Scrub lightly so you don’t get all the color out, if you are already darker. 

DIY Tan scrub:Mix granulated sugar with honey,  and olive oil or ground oatmeal chimed with a little bit of salt.

Moisturize Before & After

Skin that is moisturized and soft looks better tanned. Get your body moisturized the night before you plan to tan.

Pay special attention to the parts that dry the quickest, for they can cause an uneven tan (like elbows and knees).

Also, make sure you drink plenty of water to keep your body and skin hydrated all the while you’re tanning.

Keep it moving

To get an even glowing sexy tan, you need to move. The last thing you want is to have different colors on you.

When tanning your front have your arms up, and when you turn on your stomach keep your arms out as well. This way you expose even those parts that are harder to show off.

Flip every 15 or 30 minutes. 

What to do when you feel drowsy:Curl up under an umbrella so you don’t fall asleep on one side.

Shower after

Taking a bath or a shower, either hot or cold, is always a good idea after sitting in the sun. This  removes all the lotion, oils or salt and sand from your skin to get it looking silky.

Make sure you moisturize after or the bronze will become patchy and irregular. You may also use a cooling cream, so you can overcome any chance of burning. 

Tip: Any aloe vera based lotion is soothing and will calm your skin.
