It is proven: a tan obtained with a bronzer is the only way you can have a coppery color without putting your skin (or health) in danger due to unprotected sun exposure. But as anyone who used a bronzer may tell you, getting a uniform tan is not so simple.
It may even be difficult to obtain, especially for the beginners. The good news is that there are some tips that you can use for obtaining a radiant tan.
The color obtained with the bronzer depends on individual body chemistry. If a bronzer looks natural on one of your friends, this does not mean it will have the same effect on your skin. You must be patient. If you’re going to get all your body browny, the procedure can last more than 30 minutes.
After your take a shower and the skin completely dry, apply a thin layer of moisturizer in areas where you apply the bronzer. This step will make it easier to be applied, especially in those places with dry skin.
If you want to apply the tanner only on your face and neck, do it preferably as the last step in routine care, taking care to evenly distribute in difficult areas (nose, ears, neck).
Natural bronzers don’t leave orange stains, but you may get dirty clothes. For the next recipe you will use coconut oil so make sure you wait enough for it to be absorbed by the skin so it doesn’t leave greasy marks.
You Will Need:
- Coconut oil
- Cocoa powder
- If you need a bronzer for the entire body, use a larger quantity of coconut oil (approximately 1/2 cup).
- Mix in the cocoa powder and whisk well. You don’t need any clumps in your bronzer.
- Add the cocoa gradually until you reach the desired color.
- Apply daily for a nice tan.
