Who doesn’t love the look of a real, golden tan, compliments of the sun? The problem is that the short-term beauty of that bronze glow can result in a long-term aging disaster – fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, and even skin cancer. Self tanners can offer an alternative to the sun’s harsh rays, but choose the wrong product, and you’ll look more like an Oompa Loompa than a beach goddess!
That’s where Actifirm Firming Self Tanner saves the day. You won’t find any harsh chemicals or orange streaks here – Firming Self Tanner uses carbohydrates from sugar cane and beet extracts to naturally and safely enhance your skin. A color guide gives an instant glow, making it easier to apply evenly. Natural color develops over the course of a couple of hours. Plus, proprietary Actimatrix firming botanicals improve the appearance of skin, leaving it softer, smoother, firmer, and better hydrated.
A few tips will help assure optimum results when self tanning:
- While in the shower, use a loofah, washcloth, or sugar scrub to exfoliate the skin, focusing on dry areas like the knees and elbows. Dry skin after exiting the shower.
- Moisturize dry areas. Spot moisturize dry areas – again, those knees and elbows, along with hands and other trouble zones. This prevents these areas from soaking up too much product and gives more even results.
- Wash hands often. Apply self tanner in sections, washing hands often to prevent uneven staining of fingers and palms.
Wear sunscreen. Know that Firming Self Tanner contains no sunscreen and does not protect skin from UVA or UVB rays. When showing off your glow, be sure to apply your favorite broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15.
