Benefits of Sunless Tanning With Younique


After 2 Applications of Younique Self Tanning Body Lotion

There are so many reasons why avoiding tanning beds and harmful UV rays is best and whether you are worried about skin cancer, aging skin or even if you burn easily I think most of us can agree that there are better options. One of these options is getting a spray tan but if you are like me, getting tan at home would be the most ideal option. Spray tans can also be expensive to keep up with.

This is why I want to talk about the benefits of sunless tanning with Younique self-tanning body lotion and spray.

The biggest benefit of sunless tanning is that it is much much safer than a tanning bed and in the case of Younique all of the ingredients are naturally based. Secondly as you can see from the pictures on this page, there is no orange tint and the resulting tan looks extremely natural. This is a tan that looks great on all skin tones and types so even if you are the type who can’t tan, you can still look like you just got back from a beach vacation, nobody will know the difference.

You can expect your sunless tan to last for about a week to 10 days and it is build able so you can really go as dark as you’d like. Just make sure to clean and exfoliate the area (preferably the day before) to get the most even and long lasting results. One of my favorite benefits is that there is no unpleasant odor so you want have the usual smell as your tan darkens and develops.

The tan you achieve with Younique’s sunless tanners doesn’t wash off or rub off on your clothes and sheets (just allow it to dry for 15 minutes before getting dressed).

One Application of Younique Self Tanning Spray

Younique’s sunless tanners can be used on both he body and the face. Most people prefer the spray for the face, neck and chest and the lotion for arms, legs and any larger areas of the body. You can apply using your bare hand (wash immediately after application) a tanning mitt or even a makeup brush or sponge. Younique also has an applicator that is recommended to get the best results.











Tips and Tricks For A Flawless Younique Self-Tanning Body Lotion Application

sunlesstanninglotionbyyouniqueI am in love with Younique’s self-tanning body lotion, it has allowed me have a very natural looking tan which is something I have never had before because I am too fair skinned to turn any shade other than red. Most self-tanning lotions stink, literally stink and leave you looking orange. The last thing you need is for people to be able to tell you used a self-tanner and even comment on it (this has happened to me).

I was a little apprehensive to try the Younique Self-Tanning lotion because I was worried it would be the same old experience as before and it’s hot, I didn’t want to have to hide my legs for a week waiting for the orange to fade. After seeing some of my friends that are also Younique Presenters bravely try theirs, I tried mine and am so glad I did. Based on my own experiences and those of other presenters and bloggers who have shared their “glowing” reviews, I have some tips for a truly flawless application that will look natural and non streaky. The best part is that there is no bad self-tanner smell either, I just love this stuff 🙂

Tips and Tricks for a Flawless Younique Self-Tanning Lotion Application:

  • Do shave atleast 18-24 hours before applying the self-tanning lotion
  • Do exfoliate several hours before the application (use a body scrub, sugar, exfoliating mitt etc)
  • Do not put anything oil based on your skin before the application
  • Do use a tanning mitt or gloves or a sock or something to protect your hands from turning colors if possible. If you have to use bare hands wash them immediately after application
  • Do use a small amount for each section of your body
  • Do not over rub the lotion!
  • Do try mixing regular body lotion with an equal amount of self-tanning lotion to distribute more evenly and prevent streaking (This is my favorite way to do it, it gives me the best results) Or, you can apply your favorite body lotion immediately after applying the self tanner to help prevent streaking.
  • Do let it completely dry (10-20 min) before putting on clothes or getting in bed etc.
  • Do wait at least 4 hours, 8 hours or longer is better, to shower and avoid using harsh soaps or cleanser. Body wash is best!
  • Do keep your Younique sunless tan moisturized, use coconut oil or a non oil based lotion for the best results
  • Do apply every few days to build your tan and keep it lasting and looking awesome.

So there you have it those are my tips and tricks for younique Self-Tanning body lotion. Know this post was a little bit lengthy but once you’ve got this down you will love the results 🙂
