Self Tan Bronzing SprayShop the full St Tropez collection here.

Warm days and the bright summer sun can remind you how ghostly pale your legs may look. Before putting on your favorite bathing suit and laying out a beach towel, remember that there’s a healthier way to get the bronzed glow you’ve always wanted. The answer comes in a bottle of St. Tropez spray tan, the self-tanner of the stars.

UV Dangers

Regardless of your age, for every minute you expose yourself to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the higher your risk for developing skin cancer. The sun and salon tanning beds expose you UVA and UVB rays that damage your skin, cause premature aging, loosen its elasticity, give you wrinkles and cause brown spots. Furthermore, those who use a tanning bed have a 74 percent greater chance of developing melanoma than those who don’t, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Never think you are too young to develop skin cancer, because even women in their 20s can fall victim to the disease.

How to Get a St. Tropez Tan

Notice the hot-looking tans on Hollywood red carpets? Many of them are St. Tropez tans, and you can steal the hot, bronzed look.

  • Exfoliate your skin regularly so dead skin cells don’t leave you with an uneven tan.
  • Don’t shave or wax less than 24 hours before applying the St. Tropez spray tan.
  • Moisturize your skin well the night before you apply the spray tan. Pay special attention to your elbows, knees, ankles, feet, hands and wrists.
  • Cover your body with the spray tan. It’s okay if you use the self-tanner in the same area twice, but make sure you don’t leave any patches of skin bare.
  • Smooth the self-tanner over your skin, but don’t rub it in.
  • Don’t tan the palms of your hands. Wear gloves as you apply the spray (and bronze the backs of your hands later) or use the St. Tropez Tan Remover.
  • During the 2 hours after you apply the self-tanner, use hand sanitizers (gel, sprays or wipes) instead of soap and water to clean your hands.
  • Leaving the St. Tropez tan on longer than directed won’t give you a darker tan. For a rich bronze color, reapply the tanning spray for two or three days in a row.
  • Wear dark, loose clothes (including underwear) after you apply the spray tan to avoid rubbing off the bronzer or staining light-colored clothes.
  • Use St. Tropez Rapide Face on your hands and face because the tan will fade faster on these parts of your body. Then use the St. Tropez Self Tan Intensifier on your body every two to three days.

A bottle of St. Tropez spray tan will give you the sun-kissed look you love without any of the UV risks. Get your tan on today.
