Choosing the right tan product is an essential step towards achieving a beautifully bronzed glow. It’s not just about the depth of colour; the right product can nourish your skin, provide a smooth application, and offer longevity.
But with a plethora of options available in the market, how can you select the perfect one for your skin type? Here are some factors to consider:
Understanding Your Skin Type
Truly knowing your skin type is the very first step in choosing the right tan product. Here are the common skin types and suitable tan products:
1. Normal Skin: If you have balanced skin, neither too dry nor too oily, you could use just about any type of tanning product, from lotions to mousses.
2. Dry Skin: For those with dry skin, opt for moisturising tanning lotions or creams, which can help hydrate your skin while providing a tan. Look for specific products with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid or aloe vera.
3. Oily Skin: Mousse or gel-based tanning products are ideal for oily skin, as they’re lightweight and less likely to clog pores.
4. Sensitive Skin: If you have really sensitive skin, seek hypoallergenic products with minimal fragrance and fewer chemicals. Always perform a patch test before full application.
Consider the Depth of Tan
Tan products come with varying degrees of DHA (Dihydroxyacetone), the active ingredient that darkens the skin. Lighter skin tones may want to start with lower DHA levels for a natural-looking tan, while darker skin tones may require a higher concentration to see a noticeable difference.
For instance, the He-Shi Hydra Luxe Moisturising Lotion offers a medium shade with 7% DHA, suitable for people seeking a moderate tan.
Mastering the Art of Tan Application
The application method can greatly influence your tanning results. Tanning lotions and creams can be applied by hand, but for an even application, consider using an applicator mitt. The mitt works well with lotions, mousses, and gels.
For instance, the He-Shi Hydra Luxe Moisturising Lotion or the He-Shi H2O Glow Clear Tanning Mousse could be easily applied using a mitt for a streak-free tan. But if you prefer spray tans, consider using a brush for a flawless finish, such as the He-Shi Bronzer Brush.
Duration and Ease of Removal
Consider how long you want the tan to last and how easy it is to remove. Some products are designed to fade gradually over a week or so, while others might require a specific tan remover.
For example, if you’re looking for a long-lasting tan, consider the He-Shi Express Liquid Tan. If you prefer a temporary tan that can be washed off, the He-Shi Wonder Glow Instant Tan can be a suitable choice.
