Self tanning drops are one of the most innovative beauty products- and for good reason. They give skin a sun-kissed, bronze appearance that evens out your skin tone and replaces the need for sheer foundation for a lot of people. GlowPro Tanning drops are renowned for their gentle formula that accommodates even the most sensitive facial skin, but tanning drops can also be used to turn a regular body lotion into a gradual tanner. Self tan drops are a DHA (active tanning ingredient) concentrate and come in dropper bottle. You get to customize the depth of the tan by adding more/less drops into your moisturizer.
How do I apply tanning drops?
Pump your moisturizer into the center of the palm of your hand or you can use a separate, empty container if you’re cautious, add your desired number of drops, then mix them together. The drops will add volume to your moisturizer so you want to use slightly less than you normally would. Gently, rub the mixture into your skin as you would your normal lotion. Wash your hands immediately after with soap and water to avoid staining.
How many tanning drops do I use?
Tanning drops have different concentrations. For some brands this might be light/medium/dark or for professional brands, it’s a DHA percentage. For GlowPro Tans 40% DHA Drops, to tan your face, start with adding 2 tanning drops to your moisturizer. If you normally rub your moisturizer onto your neck, do the 3 drops. As you get more comfortable with this tanning method, add more/less drops.
To tan your arms, I suggest using 3-4 drops and about 5-6 for legs. Working per arm/leg will make the mixing more manageable and consistent.
