Fall is here, but it doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to your summer glow. There are plenty of ways to keep that bronzed look throughout fall and winter, sans the sun.
Facial bronzers are great for face and body (think neck, shoulders and décolletage), but watch out for any that will make you appear orange or sparkly. The goal is to provide a subtle, bronzed effect that's matte or with a bit of shimmer.
If you have oily skin, try dusting a powder bronzer on the areas of your face that the sun would naturally hit. Don’t always rely on the applicator that comes with the powder; you’ll need to arm yourself with a big, fluffy brush in order to achieve that smooth, even glow.
Dry skin? Go with a cream bronzer and mix it in with your moisturizer/sunscreen or apply it directly to temples, bridge of nose and cheeks.
Don’t be shy about asking for help from a professional, either. Makeup artists at the spa can walk you through how to choose the right color for your skin tone as well as the correct way to apply the product. When in doubt, remember that less is more!
When you’re ready for an all-over sunless tan, save yourself time, stress and orange palms by visiting a pro. Luckily, there are several options for sunless tanning available, and each can begin with a relaxing trip to the spa that starts with an exfoliation to prep skin for your all-over tan.
Tanning lotion application – In this treatment, a therapist meticulously applies sunless tanning lotion by hand to help you achieve an even and natural-looking tan.
Sunless tanning booth application – Here, you enter a booth that quickly sprays you from every angle with sunless tanner and moisturizers, making quick work of tanning.
Airbrush tanning – With airbrush tanning, your therapist uses a handheld airbrush to precisely and evenly apply a light misting of sunless tanning lotion, often highlighting specific parts of your body such as abdominals.
Whether you’re sporting a tan for a special event, vacation, or year round, the above options are your safest bet for avoiding the harmful—and aging—effects of extended sun exposure or tanning bed usage, and they are available any time of the year, rain or shine!
