Tanning Tips Summer 2023

As the temperature rises and the days get longer, many of us start to think about basking in the sun and getting that perfect summer glow. But with so many different tanning options available, it can be hard to know where to start.

Luckily, we've put together some top tanning tips to help you achieve that sun-kissed look you've been dreaming of.

Know Your Tanning Options

There are so many different ways to achieve a tan, and it's important to know which option will work best for you.

Some people prefer to spend hours lounging in the sun, while others prefer the convenience of a tanning bed. If you prefer to avoid UV rays altogether, self-tanning products are a great option.

At Reflection Beauty Supply, we offer a range of tanning products to suit all preferences, including high-quality options from brands like Cosmo Sun, High Fashion, and Fave 4. Whether you're looking for a shimmery lotion, a moisturizing self-tan water, or a fast-acting bronzing spray, we've got you covered.

Protect Your Skin

While getting a tan can feel great, it's important to take steps to protect your skin from damage caused by UV rays. Sunscreen is essential, even on cloudy days, and you should aim to apply it at least 30 minutes before heading outside.

At Reflection Beauty Supply, we offer a mineral-based sunscreen from Cosmo Sun that offers UVA and UVB protection with a high SPF of 55. This water-resistant sunscreen is perfect for days spent at the beach or by the pool.

Choose the Right Tanning Product

When it comes to self-tanning products, there are so many different options available that it can be overwhelming. From lotions and mousses to sprays and waters, it can be hard to know which product will work best for you.

At Reflection Beauty Supply, we carry a range of self-tanning products from Cosmo Sun and Fave 4 to suit all preferences. If you're looking for a fast-acting, all-over tan, the Send Me Sunshine Sunless Super Tanner from Fave 4 is a great choice. This lightweight lotion is easy to apply and dries quickly, leaving you with a natural-looking tan in just a few hours.

For those who prefer a gradual tan, the Tanning Lotion Cosmo Sun With Shimmer is a great option. This moisturizing lotion features a subtle shimmer that will leave your skin looking radiant.

When choosing a tanning product, it's important to consider your skin type and tone. If you have fair skin, for example, you may want to opt for a lighter formula to avoid a tan that looks too unnatural.

Prep Your Skin

Before applying any tanning product, it's important to prep your skin to ensure an even application and better results. Exfoliating a day or two before applying self-tanner will help to remove any dead skin cells and create a smooth surface for the product to adhere to.

At Reflection Beauty Supply, we recommend using the Pharmagel Shower Polish & Body Wash. This is a botanical-based, mineral rich cleanser for skin. Its conditioners invigorate your body with the cleansing & moisturizing benefits of botanical extracts. Refreshing minerals & vitamins help reduce the appearance of the signs of aging. Skin will feel silky smooth, naturally clean & refreshingly revitalized. Age Defying Mineral With Botanical Cleanses, Polishes, Moisturizes & Smooths. For your precious face we reccomend Pharmagel Enzyme Ex-Cell Papaya Face Exfoliator Scrub For All Skin Types. This product is A gentle exfoliator that removes dead skin cells and improves skin texture.

Follow Application Instructions

One of the most common mistakes people make when using self-tanning products is not following the application instructions carefully. Each product will have its specific instructions, and following these will ensure the best possible results.

For example, the Tanning Over Night Cosmo Sun Sunless Lotion should be applied before bed and left to develop overnight. This will allow time for the product to sink into your skin, leaving you with a natural-looking tan in the morning.

Similarly, the Tanning Sunless Mousse Cosmo Sun With Instant Color should be applied to clean, dry skin in a circular motion, blending carefully around your elbows, knees, and feet to avoid any uneven patches.

Don't Forget Your Accessories

While getting a tan is the ultimate goal, it's essential to take care of your skin in the process. This means protecting your eyes, lips, and hair from damage caused by UV rays.

At Reflection Beauty Supply, we offer high-quality accessories to help you protect yourself while getting your perfect tan. Our selection includes disposable undergaurdments, lip balms with SPF protection, and hair products that will nourish and protect your hair from heat and sun damage.
