Updating Your Makeup for Fall

To me, fall is the most beautiful season of the year. During this amazing time, I love to travel to a nearby mountain town in order to look at the colorful leaves on the trees. Besides shopping for new clothes, I also strive to update my makeup when the weather gets cooler outdoors. I prefer wearing pastel colors of makeup such as pink, peach, and lavender during the spring and summer months. However, when fall arrives, I like to start wearing darker, richer shades of color such as red, burgundy, and amethyst. These darker shades of makeup complement the black, chocolate brown, and gray colors of fall clothing in my closet. On this blog, I hope you will discover smart tips to help you update your makeup collection for fall. Enjoy!

Visit A Tanning Salon To Get A Natural-Looking Tan Without The Risks Of UV Exposure

If you like the look of tanned skin but want to avoid sun damage and the risk of skin cancer, consider going to a tanning salon. You can get bronzed skin without the need for sun exposure or a tanning bed. Instead, you can opt for sunless tanning. Spray tanning involves spraying your skin with an ingredient that turns your skin a darker color without the need for UV exposure. Here's how it works. 

Spray Tanning Looks Natural

One of the benefits of going to a tanning salon rather than using self-tanning products at home is that you can avoid streaky tanning. Plus, some self-tanning products can give your skin an orange rather than bronze glow. Spray tanning is done with a sugar compound called DHA that reacts with your skin to create the bronze color pigment that gives your skin a darker appearance just like it gets when tanning in the sun.

The effects aren't permanent. Since your skin cells shed, your spray tan fades within several days. The length of time it takes depends on how dark you wanted your tan. Spray tanning is a good way to get a bronze glow for a special event since you get a tan quicker and don't have to bake in the sun for hours. The more DHA that's applied, the darker your tan becomes. However, it might take a few days for the reaction to be complete so you see the final results.

Preparing For Your Tan Gives Better Results

Since your tan fades as your skin cells shed, it's a good idea to exfoliate your skin before you go to the tanning salon to eliminate surface skin cells that are already dead. You'll also want to avoid moisturizers and other skin products, such as deodorant, on the day you go to the tanning salon so there will be nothing on your skin to block the absorption of DHA. It's also a good idea to wear loose clothing so your clothing won't brush off any of the tan on the way home before it's set.

You Wear Protection While Being Sprayed

A spray tan involves spraying your body with a hose that sprays out the DHA. This means the application isn't precise. You'll want to cover your hair, wear eye protection, protect your lips, and use nose plugs to keep from inhaling the spray. The tanning salon supplies everything you need. They might even supply disposable underwear if you don't want to get yours stained. You can wear a swimsuit or get sprayed while you're nude. The choice is yours. By covering your body with a spray, you'll avoid a streaky look so your tan looks natural.
