Are self tanning products the way to go for a natural, sun-kissed glow? Quickshop 1. Self tanner: the best way of achieving a gorgeous, golden glow Can self tanner ever look natural? Self tanner gives you a summery glow all year round, without the harmful effects of UV rays. Unlike tanning booths, self tanners are kind to skin, tinting your complexion naturally thanks to DHA, a molecule that browns skin when it enters into contact with amino acids on its surface. Clarins uses DHA in combination with erythrulose for a perfectly even colour. Clarins self tanners keep you looking golden and glowing throughout the year. 2. The different types of Clarins self tanners Clarins offers a range of different self tanners. You can also use the Instant Smooth self tanner. This is ideal for giving you a healthy glow, as well as filling in wrinkles and fine lines for perfectly smooth skin.In just a few hours, your skin will look subtly bronzed, even if you are fair. 3. The secret to flawless application We strongly recommend you exfoliate your skin before applying self tanner. Why? Because exfoliating removes dead skin cells, ensuring your self tanner will last longer on the 'new' skin underneath. For the most radiant result, remember to moisturise the areas where you apply your self tanner.
