3 rules for applying self-tanner correctly

1- Prepare your skin

A few days before applying your face self-tanner, it is essential to exfoliate your pretty face with a gentle exfoliation.

In addition to giving you a moment of well-being, it's the best way to say goodbye to dead skin, impurities and to open pores. As a result, the self-tanner will adhere perfectly to the skin afterwards, for your greatest happiness.

Also note that without exfoliation, the effect of self-tanning will be counterproductive. Instead of the delicious tan, you risk having unsightly traces on the face. Rather unfortunate, right? So don't wait any longer: on your marks, get set, erase!

2- Hydrate your face

Once the scrub is done, you have to move on to the second step: moisturizing the skin . This is the secret to looking good and shining for sure.

Bet on an ultra nourishing cream, rich in fruit extracts. It's the best way to pamper your face in depth.

And don't forget that proper hydration isn't just about the cosmetics you use. You should also drink at least 1.5 L per day. Water, tea, herbal tea, homemade fruit juice... It's up to you to choose according to your desires!

3- Adopt the right gestures to apply the self-tanner
