Are you dreaming of sun-kissed skin? Or maybe you like the classic ebony brown? Well, if you've got a pale complexion and want to look like you've just come back from an exotic vacation, it's not that easy, especially now during pandemic season. But there are ways to get that perfect, even tan. How do you do it? Here's how!
Determine your skin photo-type
Tanning pale skin can be a challenge. Fair skin is slower to catch the sun's rays, tends to turn red soon after, and is more prone to sunburn. But as it turns out, owners of pale skin can also achieve a beautiful bronze shade. To do this, you first need to determine your photo-type, or skin type. When we talk about pale skin, we usually mean the Celtic and Northern European photo-types.
The Celtic photo-type is distinguished by pale skin and freckles on the face and body. Its owners have red or light blonde hair and light blue or green eyes.
The Northern European photo-type is characterized by a fair complexion, sometimes with freckles.
The hair is a shade of light or dark blonde, sometimes dark red. Women with this complexion have green, blue or gray eyes.
Choose the right form of tanning
Knowing your skin type can help you find the right tanning bed for you. Find out what to keep in mind for both skin types.
If you have a Celtic-type complexion, tanning is very difficult.
It is not recommended for its owners to catch the sun on an open beach. As for the tanning bed, they should carefully consult the time of tanning. Onyx natural self-tanning foam, made of 100% organic aloe vera, works well here. It is worth using for all skin types. You can also use Onyx Vibe, a strongly moisturizing natural tanning accelerator.
It's not easy for those with a Northern European complexion to get a beautiful tan either, but it can be done.
Speed up the process with Onyx ANTI-AGING Facial Bronzing Accelerator or the above mentioned Onyx Natural Self Tanning Mousse. Women with this type of complexion can also use a tanning bed, but they should do so with caution. They should do it often, but only for a short time. At the beginning, tanning in this form should last no longer than 5-8 minutes, and later this time can be slightly extended. It is worth remembering that you should wait at least two days between tanning sessions in a solarium. Also, you shouldn't tan more than 60 times per year.
