How to Safely Use Tanning Oil to Get the Tan You’ve Been Dreaming of

Tanning oil is a great way for those who want to sport a nice tan to polish what they’re already working with. This means that if you already have a good base tan, you can use this oil to help you get your ideal tan faster while also making sure that it’s even and helping your complexion. On top of that, it provides you additional sun protection so that you can still tan without having to compromise your own health. Whether you are working on a natural tan by way of sunbathing or using sunless methods, tanning oils will be very useful. However, it’s important to keep in mind a few recommendations at the time of using them, so let’s go over some pointers from our team here at Arizona Sun. 

How Do Tanning Oils Work?

First of all, what exactly do tanning oils do? What is it that they’re for? Well, by applying these specific oils on your skin, it will attract more UV rays coming from the sun and focus them onto your skin. This higher exposure allows the melanin in your skin to be produced faster, accelerating the process of acquiring a perfect tan and intensifying it in the areas where the oil is applied. This is what makes Arizona Sun tanning oil such a great tool at the time of rounding up or evening out your tan. You can apply it in areas that are paler than others in order to make sure that you encourage tanning in those specific regions that are giving you trouble. Farmer’s tan? This will be the way to take care of that.

How to Apply Them

In order to properly use tanning oils, you will have to pour the desired amount onto the palms of your hands. Then, spread and rub the oil across the areas of your body that you want tanned similarly to how you apply sunscreen. Remember that if you’re using it on more delicate skin areas, such as your face, it’s important to be gentle with the application. At all times remember to apply the oil evenly unless you want your tan to be uneven as well. Unless you’re trying to focus on particularly untanned areas such as your chest or trying to address tan lines, try using Arizona Sun tanning oil across your whole body to make sure you have an even complexion.

Making Sure Your Tan is Even

If you’re spending a long time out in the sun and you want to make sure that your tan is even throughout, you might have to reapply the tanning oil at some point. If you really want to speed up the process, you might want to reapply after two hours, especially if you’ve been active, swimming, or sweating a lot. Otherwise, and to avoid overtanning too quickly, you should be fine reapplying it every three to five hours. Ultimately it will all depend on your skin type and the results you’re looking for.
