I live en europe, more specific in the north, and that means i have very light skin.
I am therefore not the best friend with the sun, even if i love summer and the warm weather. My skin turns red easily, and in worts case i get itchy and extreme warm spots on my arms.
So i avoid to stay to much in the sun, and if im out, i make sure to put on sunscreen several times a day, and it usually helps, but it all comes down to, i can not get a tan.
So i wanted to try self tanning, and i got the hang of it, and its not as complicated as i feared, because we have all seen the girls and boys, who did not practice enough before they went out the door.
The one i have used, are the Rimmel 24 hour, wash off tan, its easy to put on, and the color is light to medium, depending how many layers you put on.
I only use 1 layer since i dont want to go from, white as snow to black as my dog over night. And i have received many compliments, and that have made me more daring to wear dresses and shorts this summer.
I recomen that if you want to try self tanning, use af wash of to start with, like the one from Rimmel, because with water and soap you can start over.
And make sure your skin is prepared, so the day before tanning, use a body scrub, and moisturize, so you won't get spots that easily.
