Prestige (premium/high-end) skincare is packed with great ingredients that help you preserve your youthful glow. In fact, many of these anti-aging products contain Retinoids or Alpha Hydroxy, which have been shown in evidence-based studies to work effectively to slow and/or reverse key signs of aging. Unfortunately, these products speed up the renewal and turn-over of skin cells. Sadly, high cell turnover rates can cause sunless tans to fade quickly.
Also, this process exfoliates your top layer of skin in order to deeply enter your facial skin and create collagen production, thus creating anti-aging effects. Furthermore, sunless tanning sprays and products only develop on the very top layer of skin. So, when we use products that make those slough off faster….we lose our pretty glow.
Don’t sweat it (pun intended)! Fortunately, we’ve got the answers to all your sunless struggles!!
PROBLEM: Combining sunless tanner with anti-aging products.
SOLUTION: Switch your sunless tanner to the AM if your evening skincare routine includes your anti-aging lotions and potions. Also, Retinols and sunless tanners counteract with each other, making both work less effectively.
PROBLEM: Layering your products and serum incorrectly.
SOLUTION: Switch the order of your products and you will see better results. Sometimes, this simple change is enough to make a huge difference in the development of your faux-glow.
Moreover, you can start with gentle exfoliation prior to application during the cleansing phase. Then, follow the order below:
- Hydrating Serum
- Sunless Tanner
