Clarins Self Tan
Clarins Self Tan is a sunless or fake tanning product that provides the sun kissed, glowing look of a natural tan without any exposure to the harmful rays of the sun. These tans became popular in the 1960s as the medical profession began to understand the dangers of sunbathing without any protection and the associations with skin cancers. The best sunless tanning systems, such as the Clarins Self Tan, use Dihydroxyacetone or DHA as their main ingredient. This chemical does not paint or stain the skin, but reacts with the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface to create a natural bronzed glow that you will love. The effect is temporary as the colour fades when the dead cells are rubbed off the skin surface naturally, so the best way to prolong a fake tan is to look after your skin.
The Clarins Self Tan process
The first step in your Clarins Self Tan treatment is an all over body exfoliation and moisturising treatment using Clarins products with natural plant extracts. This prepares your skin for the application of the Clarins Self Tan lotion by removing all the dead cells that are ready to fall off, and then creating an even, smooth surface for the tan’s development. Dry areas can cause patchy or streaky effects as your Clarins Self Tan develops so avoiding these is vital if you want an even, golden tan. Your therapist will then massage the Clarins self tan into your skin, giving you the option of whether or not your chest is included as this is a matter of personal choice. Your tan will then develop gradually over the three to four hours to give you a gorgeous, glowing look without any need for UV rays or tedious sunbathing.
Care of your Clarins Self Tan
There are a few things you can do to prolong an even, golden tan. Your therapist will give you details about when you can shower and whether to moisturise again. Wearing loose clothes while the Clarins Self Tan develops will help avoid rubbing from straps or tight fabrics which can make a tan patchy or uneven. Gentle exfoliation as your tan fades will help to keep the process smooth and remove any darker areas where the tan is fading more slowly. Regular moisturising over the lifetime of your tan will also help maintain the colour for longer. Swimming pools and Jacuzzis with harsh chemicals can strip the tan more quickly, but it will not wash off so if you want to dive in, then do so with confidence.
A Clarins Self Tan is a great way to look your best even in the depths of winter, although it will be wasted if you are huddled up in multiple woolly layers, so why not make an appointment at the Belmore Centre in Aylesbury for a few days before the party season to make a great impact with a golden tan in the depths of winter. More people are also having sunless tans before a holiday, so why not join them and get your Clarins self tan treatment along with your holiday waxing before you fly and look fantastic around the pool from day one!
