Self tan for darker skin tones
Self-tanner has heaps of benefits for darker skin tones.¬†Here’s our list of reasons to try fake tan if you’ve got cocoa-coloured skin and want to experience what sunless tanning has to offer:
- When applied on darker complexions, fake tan adds a subtle radiance to the skin that makes it look healthy,¬†firm and youthful. Yes, the final colour change isn’t as noticeable as it is when applied to paler complexions¬†but the tanner does lend the¬†skin a gorgeously rich glow that corrects uneven pigmentation and highlights the curves of the cheekbones and decolletage.
- A bit like an airbrush, tanner will still camouflage stretch marks, scars and spots on darker skin, helping to balance out uneven colouration¬†and hide unsightly blemishes. It also reduces the appearance of cellulite and improves muscle definition.
- A professional fake tan lifts the complexion and creates a flawless base that hides redness and spider veins, allowing you to cut back on foundation and concealer. Plus, it lasts for up to a week if you moisturise daily.
- Your tanning therapist will be able to offer you lots of advice on the choices of colour available, from subtly sun-kissed and lightly caramel to a full-on burnished bronze. The darker your natural colour, the richer¬†the tanner you’ll be able to select. But if you want to give it a try at home then Gradual Self Tan Lotion makes for the perfect trial product for newbies. This gentle tan is applied like a moisturiser and slowly develops over the day. You can re-apply as often as you like to deepen your colour, camouflage marks and uplift your complexion. There’s no excuse not to try it!¬†Order your bottle here!
