Autumn has come to strip away your tan - are you ready to keep it?

Listen to The Geeky Gentleman Podcast Episode 16: Who Is Moon Knight & My Top 5 Self-Tanners here!

It’s a sad, sad day when you realize that summer is leaving for another year. Now that your sunbathing days are out the window you can kiss that tan of your’s goodbye - or do you?!

Now, I’m not talking about going to your local tanning spot and getting spritzed all over and eventually hating your life because you look like a ridiculous shade of orange. I’m talking about creating a sun-kissed radiance look that’s safe, quick, and easily done at home.

When it comes to tanning at home preparation is key. A few tips to achieve that summer glow.

1.) Exfoliate & Moisturize

You must exfoliate and moisturize beforehand. It’s a must - don’t skip it!

2.) Use A Mitt/Glove

Apply the tanner with a mitt and apply lightly. You can always go back and reapply to intensify the shade.

3.) Wash Your Hands After

Don’t forget to wash your hands after the application. The last thing you want is to have any remnants of the tanner on your hands because that will not look good. But if you followed point #2 , then you should be using a mitt anyways.

Okay, now that we got that out of the way. I’ve got the best self-tanners for you gentlemen that will give you that summer glow even though you’ve been trapped inside wishing for the sun to come back.
