Many clients have tried them all and either failed with their technique or by applying excess product. To keep clients out of the self-tanning hall of shame, here are 10 important things they should remember when choosing and using…
Sunless tanning is considered the application of a natural or chemical-based product that is applied to the skin to produce an effect similar in appearance to a natural suntan. The popularity in sunless tanning services has grown over the past 30 years as an increase in concern about sun exposure, the health risks of tanning beds, and the "Hollywood" factor.
