Everyone is aware of the dangers of burning in the sun, but many people still look and feel better with a sun-kissed glow. There is a plethora of fake tan beauty products available on the market to choose from, but trying to select the right one is like being lost in a maze. Beauty Counter Direct, the online discounted designer beauty products store, has tried and tested a selection of branded self tan products. These have been categorised online so that it's much easier for customers to choose the right fake tan to suit their needs.
Customers can choose from instant tans, self-tans, gradual tans, body exfoliators, body moisturisers, at home tanning sets which contain all the necessary steps to a perfect self tan, and finally, bronzing extras for products that help to make the most of a fake tan.
For a quick tan when there is little time, Beauty Counter Direct recommends two instant tanning products. Almay's Bare it All Legs performs very well. It's quick and easy to use and comes in a choice of shades giving a very natural looking finish. Air Stocking Premier Silk creates a sheer glow that gives the impression of wearing tights. It covers the legs in a fine light mist which is not only waterproof, but contains an SPF protection as well.
For an all over glow Pout Sexy Sunwear Ultimate Fake Tan is the answer. It has a pleasant creamy formula which is tinted, making it very easy to apply and ensures that coverage is complete. It gradually develops into a tanned look that lasts for days with an attractive glow, making it a popular choice for summer.
Gradual tans are perfect for a naturally looking sun-kissed effect that builds up gradually over several days. They create a very natural look that builds slowly and are popular all year round. Beauty Counter direct recommends Johnson's Holiday Skin or St Tropez Everyday Moisturiser for the face.
To achieve a long lasting fake tan, a home self tan kit is recommended. The St Tropez Self Tan Systems provide everything you need to obtain the perfect tan. To achieve the best results it's important to follow a pre tan routine. First exfoliate thoroughly. Next moisturise, paying particular attention to ankles, knees and elbows. When tanning the face it is important to pay particular attention to the hair line and eyebrows when applying moisturiser. St Tropez Self Tan sets offer a choice of self tan formulations. The original formulation is the lotion, which is also known as Auto Bronzant. There is also a whipped mousse, a spray mist and a shimmering bronze formulation.
St Tropez has also developed an everyday tanning moisturiser. This moisturising lotion has a soft sheen which gradually develops into a gentle glow throughout the day. Unlike some other products it dries on the skin very quickly. There are many similar products on the market at the moment, which are great for anyone who is wary of using a self tan product and would like to practice first, or simply wish to top up a holiday tan.
Beauty Counter Direct recommends facial bronzers as a great way to compliment a tan or to add a touch of colour and sheen to the complexion. A touch of bronzing powder adds an instant touch of glamour which is a quick and easy, and a cheaper way of achieving a summer look. Beauty Counter Direct recommends Elizabeth Arden Bronzing Powder Duo for a light touch of colour, or St Tropez Powder Bronzer for anyone who wants a deeper golden glow. Sweep a light dusting of powder over the cheeks and temples with a large blusher brush.
