There are some basic steps for safe tanning

It will protect your skin from getting hurt by the UV rays; at the same time, it allows some rays penetrating into our skin and gets your skin tanned. Remember to apply water-resistance sunscreen in case you want to swim or you just have too much sweat.
  2. Avoid the hottest hours. Rays in noon are the most strongest during the day, so avoid this period in case of getting burned.
  3. Tan your body in a slow process. You can lie down for 20 minutes at the very beginning and add 5-10 minutes each time for your tanning. Do not over expose your skin at the first time.

The following are the steps of two different ways for safe tanning.

Use self-tanning Gel

  1. Exfoliate your body. Smooth skin will make you look more attractive, and make tanning more effective. So remember to wear self-tanning gel right after you exfoliating and moisturizing your body.

  4. Ask a friend and get some help. You and your friends need help to apply self-tanner to hard-to-reach areas, for example, back.

Use a spray product

  1. Exfoliate and moisturize your skin, in particular, your knees and elbows; otherwise, they may turn into awkward colors.
  2. Use a tinted spray. You may forget how much you have already applied to your skin if you use a clean one.
  3. Pay attention not to spray on the things around you. You’d better go to the bathroom and find yourself an empty place to apply the tanning products.
  4. Spray your back like spraying the perfume or you can just find a helper. A helper will make it easier to do the back.
  5. Erase the mistakes. You can use a sponge brush or a tan remover to erase application mistakes during spraying.
