Getting the Best Tan

Summertime means tanning time. One of the goals for many people during the summer months is to develop and hot and sexy tan to set off their summer and fall looks just right. The key to this whole plan, though, is getting the best tan possible. For some people, tanning is, in itself, quite the daunting task, one that is often elusive and hard to perfect. For those of you who are unsure about how to get the best tan, follow these simple guidelines, and you'll have that perfect summer tan to set off your perfect summer wardrobe.

There are various methods to tanning, which include direct sun exposure, tanning beds, and sunless tanning methods. Each way can help you on your way to get the best tan for you. Direct sun exposure is definitely the easiest and the cheapest. If you prefer to go this route, keep in mind that you'll need regular sunbathing to get the perfect tan. However, the same is true for tanning beds. With tanning beds though, you will be able to tan quicker (ideally) because of the higher intensity of tan-giving energy.

Sunless tanners require regular application, and you'll want to make sure you get a quality sunless tanner, because if you don't, then you risk looking orange. And let's face it: the best tan is not orange. If you use sunless tanner, make sure to apply it evenly and in light coats. The best way to achieve the best results with sunless tanner is to apply it gently and with finesse—otherwise you'll be sporting the Oompa Loompa look.

Something you need to remember, however, when doing anything to get a tan—but, especially with direct sun exposure or tanning beds—is that ultimately, the best tan depends on your skin type. This article should really be titled, "Getting the Best Tan for Your Skin Type." If you're extremely fair, then you won't get a dark bronze tan for the summer—it just doesn't work that way. If you burn easily, tanning may either be nigh to impossible or relatively painful. However, if you have already dark skin, then tanning probably won't be much of a problem for you. Take some time and get to know your skin type, so you can really know what your best tan is. Also remember that summer attractiveness is definitely not dependent on whether or not you have a tan. Find your own personal style that reflects your personality, and you'll be sizzling during the summer, no matter what!
