5 Reasons To Use An After Tan Moisturizer/Tan Extender
I absolutely love, love, love after tan moisturizers! I wasn't always like that though, I used to think that tan extenders and things like that, really didn't make a difference. It was just recently that my view of all those moisturizing products has changed.
My favorite, I have to say is probably a brand called "Hempz". Oh, do I love that stuff. I'm starting to think I'm getting addicted to it. I use it before tanning, after tanning, and everywhere in between.
Even for people who don't go tanning, I suggest you try some of this stuff. I don't think that there is a woman that I know who doesn't use some kind of lotion or moisturizer. This is the ultimate moisturizer. We all know that the key to a great tan is keeping your skin extra moisturized. If your skin is dry and flaky it is impossible to get a nice, deep tan.
So, my point is that these after tan moisturizers are called that for a reason. They are extra moisturizing to help with all of the stress a tanning bed or UV light can put on our skin. If you don't tan they will still help to make your skin soft.
I like these lotions for a few different, but very particular reasons, that I feel are important enough to share with who ever reads this. Here they go~
#1 They smell so freaken good. I'm serious, every single tan extending lotion I have ever used has always smelled awesome. It's like no other.
#2 You can get them with just a touch of sunless tanner or shimmer, if you will. Don't be mistaken though, this is not how it extends your tan. No, no, no this is just an extra added bonus if you choose an after tan moisturizer with this in it but you don't have to.
#3.A lot of after tan moisturizers have natural products in them, such as hemp, aloe and green tea extracts just to name a few. Also, they are made to help fight the aging process and help firm the skin.
#4 To maximize, and make your tan last longer. I also love the soothing feeling it has on your skin after you come out of the tanning bed.
#5 I also hear that these are great for spray tans as well. They help your spray tan go on more evenly and help it last longer!
Like I said, you have to moisturize your skin anyway and let me tell you, I don't think I will ever use a regular creme or lotion ever again.
You can get these after tan moisturizers at most tanning salons but you can most likely find them a lot cheaper on the internet. There are tons and tons of online tanning lotion stores and wholesalers. The safest choice would be a place that is well known and trusted like Ebay or Amazon.
Some of my favorite tan extending moisturizers that I think you should try are, of course, Hempz, Designer Skin Undercover Angel, and OC moisturizer.
