My Sunless Tanning Routine

My Sunless Tanning Routine

The art of self tanning is something that has taken me years to perfect. It’s tricky to find a product that does what it says it will do, but scientist have finally created several great products. With so much competition to give you the best results it’s no wonder you probably haven’t heard of all of them. Leave it to my year-around tan friend, Wendy, to introduce me to Nu Skin Sunright® Insta Glow. As I watched her pull a tube of tanning gel from her purse and apply it directly to her legs in a restaurant over lunch I was first shocked. Then sold. I couldn’t believe this 5’11” runway model-type wearing a chic black romper and Chanel belt would apply sunless tanner in a restaurant. That’s when I learned my sunless tanning routine. 

Over lunch I watched Wendy’s tan legs turn a deeper natural shade of brown as we talked and ate. I was no longer interested in any other products out there. I needed to know if my body would react the same to the Sunright® Insta Glow she had. Would I get a natural bronze tan like hers from this product? Is it sticky? How many hours do I have to wear it? How did her hands not turn orange? Does it streak? 

Right then and there I ordered it online and have never looked back. 

So this was my experience using a quality sunless tanner. I took a shower and exfoliated because the directions said to do that. I was nervous about turning orange so I applied a light layer of lotion all over my entire body to cover any dry skin and blend the tanner. After I applied the tanner directly to my hands, no brush or loofah necessary, I rubbed it all over my entire body — sans my face because it see’s enough direct sunlight. 

Sunright® Insta Glow works with your skins DHA and blends with natural components on your skin to provide a beautiful, sunkissed sunless tan free of strong aromas. I saw a difference in my skin tone within 30 minutes. Within two hours I was even tanner. I wanted to see how dark one application would turn my skin so I left it on over night. When I woke up I was the perfect shade of bronze and extremely happy. This gel is non drip and absorbs quickly into the skin for a streak-free finish. You don’t have to shower immediately making it ideal for last minute fixes. Especially if you procrastinate like me.

With summer officially here I shot this video to give you a look at what my legs looked like before and after I applied one application to one leg. If you are anything like me and practice skin safety first, self tanner is the way to go. Protect your skin with Nu Skin and stay sunkissed all summer long. 

I would LOVE to see your results! Please share your pictures and experiences on my YouTube video below!!!
