Self-tanner is great for giving you color without having to spend time in the sun. But like a summer sun, a faux tan fades and can leave you looking less than glowing. To start the week with a fresh look, you might need to remove traces of your faded faux tan. Create your own DIY self-tanner remover to help. It's easy with just some lemon juice and raw sugar!
When it comes to self-tanning, Jane Iredale, founder and president of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, Ltd., has a few suggestions to "tan" by. She recognizes that we can sometimes use a little help to develop a beautiful glow.
"Drinking lots of water and making healthy food choices are essential to achieving a natural glow. If you need a little more help, especially when faced with pasty skin, Tantasia Self Tanner & Bronzer offers a healthy, natural way to emulate the effects of sun-kissed days at the beach without the exposure," she says.
"The tinted, lightweight formula has a delicate citrus scent and natural formulation, so it blends evenly for a streak-free glow. My goal was to develop a natural self-tanner with absolutely no drawbacks, no negatives."
Before applying the mixture to your body, first test it on your inner arm, where you skin is more sensitive, to help ensure you can tolerate the ingredients. Make sure your arm is slightly wet first.
This recipe makes enough for your whole body. Apply it to damp skin. If you're using this in the shower, take care not to slip, and rinse any remaining sugar and juice from the bottom of your tub or shower when you're finished.
