Get Your Glow On At Home!
It’s the first day of Spring and now is the time to kick-start building that glow! Whether you want a little color to complement your new spring outfit or show off your glow on a special night out, self-tanning is a quick and easy way to get you looking and feeling your best! Self-tanners aren’t created equal. Low-quality products and improper use can leave you with unnatural, embarrassing color that you’ll be scrubbing off in the shower. I swear I’ve tried them all, but my personal favorite sunless tanning options come from Mystic Tan at SOL SPA. Mystic Tan is the #1 selling customizable tan in the professional market for the last 15+ years. Over time, they’ve learned what it takes to get the perfect tan—and how to avoid the fails in typical tanning products. Say goodbye to orange, streaky, smelly tans, and hello to deep, long-lasting, natural color.
Want your perfect tan? Look for these qualities you should expect from the best self-tanning lotion or spray.
If you’ve self-tanned in the past, you’ve probably experienced the dreaded orange look. It can be enough to swear off self-tanning entirely. But not so fast—you just need a professional product. We’ve got you covered—the right way.
Say goodbye to orange with these tips:
- Prep your skin. Dry skin will absorb more DHA than needed (DHA is the active ingredient in sunless tanning products). Dry, imbalanced skin will take on a more orange hue. A pre tan booster or primer balances the skin’s pH and hydrates the skin. What’s the payoff? You enjoy an even, streak-free tan that actively combats orange undertones.
- Don’t over-apply. Too much DHA can cause tan build up and uneven fading causing the new tan to look uneven. Be sure to exfoliate and prepare the skin for the perfect tan.
Whether you use the spray or the lotion, I recommend using an application mitt so you get smooth, even color. If you apply by hand, wash your hands immediately after use.
Self-Tanning Color Options
Even without the orange look, a low-quality self-tanner can look unnatural. That’s why Mystic Tan offers a range of bronzer options to complement your natural skin tone.
Forget the one-size-fits-all self-tanner products. Choose from skin-tone sensitive colors and shades to create a natural-looking tan.
Avoid products that leave your tan spotty, blotchy or faded within a few days. With proper care and moisturizing, the best self-tanning products will leave you glowing for up to 7 days. If you work out or swim routinely, color can fade sooner. To make your tan last, moisturize daily and consider pairing your self-tanner with a gradual tanner. A gradual tan lotion is a silky moisturizer that both hydrates skin and develops a tan over one week. When used daily, it progressively builds color and extends the life of your tan.
Mystic Tan sunless self tanners are formulated with breakthrough odor control technology. They are designed to virtually eliminate the odor commonly associated with sunless tanning products.
And no odor means no limits to when you tan. Apply at your convenience—day or night. You can walk out the door confident, with the color you want without the self-tanning odor.
Treat Yourself to the Best Self-Tanning Products
Most of all, the best-self tanners are those that are kind to your skin. Healthy, hydrated skin will help you achieve the results you have in mind. High-quality sunless tanners combine nourishing ingredients without harsh or irritating chemicals, so you can enjoy skin that looks and feels amazing.
