A lot of people want to get a healthy and naturally glowing skin by baking in the sun, however, facial skin could be subject to harmful UV exposure due to lack of sun protection, accelerating the skin aging process. So what can we do to get a healthy glow without skin damage? Self-tanner is worth giving a try!
Compared with body tanning, consumers ask for more from facial tanning products. Using a bad tanning product can be a disaster which might bring about many problems such as streak, breakouts, flaking, burning sensation, redness, or an Oompa Loompa-like skin tone. How terrible are these results! So here we highly recommend professional facial self-tanners. The facial tanning products should be lightweight to be suitable for all skin types and for those who are going through skin problems such as rosacea, and not to put further pressure on the skin, reducing the appearance of acne, pimple, and allergies. After collecting a bunch of advice from a host of experts in tanning, we realize that temples, foreheads, and cheeks are the key areas of facial tanning. The face will look unnatural if the self-tanners are covering up the whole face. Apart from the above mentioned, we recommend using the gradual self-tanner for achieving different tanning effects by adjusting the frequency of application.
After heeding the advice of dermatologists, we’ve rounded up the following ten facial self-tanners which all contain natural botanical ingredients such as aloe, nourishing and moisturizing your skin while tanning. Take a shot and it will work wonders for you!View More
