Tanning outdoors allows you to get a healthy glow naturally, and Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Oils make the process even easier. There are five varieties of Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Oils available, so you can pick the kind that fits your needs. The Dark Tanning Oil is in a capped bottle and contains exotic ingredients and vitamins. The other four types of Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Oils have SPFs ranging from 0 to 12 and come in bottles with spray pumps. All Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Oils contain ingredients to nourish your skin and keep it moisturized as you get that golden glow.
Put on your swimsuit. Make sure it is one that will leave tan lines you are comfortable with. Some swimsuits create undesirable tan lines, and you don’t want to realize this after it is too late.
Consider applying a sunscreen to your skin before you use the oil. Because the oil doesn’t offer significant sun protection, you might want to apply a sunscreen with a low to medium SPF evenly over all of your exposed skin, especially if your skin is light or sensitive to sun exposure.
Apply the Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Oil to all of your exposed skin. If the tanning oil is in a spray bottle, you can spray it directly onto your body; otherwise, you should pour some into your hands first and then rub it on your skin. Apply the tanning oil generously.
Put on sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV rays as you tan. The sun’s rays can damage your retinas if you leave them unprotected.
Tan for the same amount of time on the front side of your body and the back side of your body. This will ensure you get an even tan over your entire body, instead of having one side darker than the other.
When the oil starts coming off — for example, when you switch sides — repeat application.
Keep some water around while you tan so that you can stay hydrated while you relax in the sun.
