Self-Tanner Beauty Tips

So we shared our favorite self-tanners, but how do you get that subtle glow without making it completely obvious? Avoid a sticky & stressful situation, and wave bye-bye to those orange palms because we’re sharing our how to on applying a streak-free fabulous tan!

(www.rokderm.com)

1.) Scrub Away Those Troubles! To ensure a lasting and lovely tan ladies, the first step is to exfoliate that skin! Scrub away the dead skin to provide a beautiful canvas for the product to look its best! (Stay tuned for our secrets on how to beautifully exfoliate your body later in May!)

2.) Powder Protection! Forget those oily moisturizers, instead look to any basic baby powder to protect those areas where obvious streaks can be found! Lightly powder under the armpits, all rough areas including knees, elbows your feet toes and even your hands to avoid stains and ensure that natural tan.

3.) Time To Tan! Rule of thumb: stay conservative beauties, think less is more! After applying a sufficient amount to the entire body (while wearing dark clothes!), let the tanner oxidize on the skin! Once settled, you then can then determine whether you want to go darker and need to add more! Another important rule for keeping that fresh tan, NO showering for 8 hours after applied!

4.) Face Time! Our final step is ensuring a our face is left gorgeous and glowing too! We recommend using lighter shade and perhaps a face tanner specifically! While we want our face to slightly match our body, we don’t want it to scream ‘self-tanner.’ (Be sure not to forget the ears too!)

By shopping for frames are good for your face shape will eliminate all the time and stress that will distract you from finding the right pair.

Here are our hints to finding those flattering frames for any face shape! What kind of fabulous frames do you have for your face and how do you like to rock them? Do tell!

Soften those angles by choosing a curved and more rounded frame. A retro cat-eye or oval shaped frame are the perfect pair for us gals with that sexy square shape!

2.) Round Shape Face

Be edgy! Instead of softening the edges, we want to create angles of the face and our glasses can most definitely help! Try a pair with sharp rectangular angles that will balance and do the same to your face!

3.) Heart Shape Face

Hello sweethearts! For those of you gals with a heart shaped face try finding a pair with colors and angles and no harsh frames! A cat-eye, butterfly and a beautiful hint of color will suit your shape by bringing attention to your eyes!
