Fake Tan Tips and Tricks

As some of you are probably aware, my undying love of beauty therapy has meant I've signed on to every course I could fit around my university degree. In a bid to avoid looking like the Twilight clan this summer (I just can't rock it like they do) I eagerly signed up for the self tanning course that was running so I could learn both manual and spray application. The course itself was really enjoyable and I got full marks on the final exam so I was really pleased!
 

This is my Mam's tanning results on the left and the natural pasty colour of the family on the right!
I thought I'd make a quick post sharing some tips and tricks that I learnt for the best results so you can avoid some of the hilarious results that I received over the weeks of the course:
 

 
 
It's so easy to go wrong when applying a manual tan as you can see from the above photos! It's so easy to get natural results if you prepare thoroughly however, so below is a full step by step run down of how to apply manual tan:
  


To add to this video is a few tips to ensure that the tan is long lasting and really flawless!

Directly after application:
- Remember the colour is just a guide and will look lovely when it is washed off after development.
- Avoid tight clothing (especially bras etc) for the next 6-8 hours as any friction to the skin will remove the tan. Ideally it is best to leave it to develop overnight then wash it off in the evening.
-  Avoid contact with water for at least 8 hours. Keep the skin free of any products such as deodorants or makeup as it develops in the first eight hours.
- Avoid strenuous exercise or any activity which will make you sweat excessively for 12 hours, as this will disrupt the tan.
- When washing pat the skin dry rather than rubbing.

In the following days:
- Moisturise daily to keep skin hydrated and avoid patchiness.
- Avoid treatments which will remove layers of the skin such as waxing.
- Exfoliate after about four days to avoid a patchy tan.
- Avoid chlorine as this will cause the tan to discolour and will bleach the skin.
- After 3-4 days you may use a "tan extender" which is a mix of moisturiser and tan to boost your colour.

If it all goes wrong....

The issue:
The tan didn't develop.
Reasons:
- Client medication
- The tan does not work efficiently with the body's chemistry,
- A product on the skin such as moisturiser/oils from exfoliator were not removed thoroughly before tanning application
- The product has been showered off too soon.
What to do:
Try a patch test with a range of products until a suitable product is found which offers good results.

The issue:
Dark patches
Reasons:
- The texture or colour of the skin before application which may need to be addressed first.
- Not enough barrier cream on dry areas.
- Exfoliator is not suitable for the skin.
What to do:
- Gently exfoliate to try even out tan and consider treatments beforehand which may improve the skin's condition.
- Try a thicker barrier cream or different exfoliator.

The issue:
The dreaded streakiness
Reason:
- Products on the skin beforehand have affected the tan. For example, if the exfoliator is not removed properly the oils from the product will prevent the tan developing on the skin.
- Insufficient tan was applied.
- Aftercare advice has not been followed.
What to do:
- Exfoliate to try and even out streaks.
- Apply more product to the area.

Hope this helped! We'll all be flouncing around looking like we've been to Ibiza for two weeks by the end of it ;).

  16. Yes, fake tan can look really good when done properly but often by doing it our self's and even sometimes professionally it can turn out bad and embarrassing.
    Spray tanning makes the skin golden brown, and not orange.
    That way, you will never be out of the color you like if they happen to run out of it at the local drugstore or beauty
    center.

There are many types of variations in Mehndi Designs like Arabic, Pakistani, Bridal, Traditional, and as well as Indian Designs, etc. And here you will find some of most unique and excellent mehandi designs to make you look exquisite.

    arabic mehndi designs are entirely different. Usually, there is not much complexity in these drawings, and large contours are drawn, and the interior is full of lines and dots. Quite in contrast to Indian motifs, Arabs do not cover the whole hand. Mehandi season has come, and all the brides are too busy deciding their bridal mehndi designs. Mehandi celebration is one of the most fun-filled and glamorous pre-wedding gatherings.
