Best Health - - THE BUSY WOMAN’S GUIDE TO SUMMER -

Look­ing for a healthy sum­mer glow that’s both safe and con­ve­nient? Take a page from our swim­suit model’s play­book – try Tan on the Run. De­signed for max­i­mum con­ve­nience, and op­er­at­ing across Canada, you can book on­line to have the mo­bile air­brush spray tan ser­vice visit you — wher­ever, when­ever. Us­ing an or­ganic for­mula rich in aloe vera, this ex­pertly ap­plied splash of colour, which leaves skin wow-level ra­di­ant and soft, has ad­di­tional perks. “Spray tans can be cus­tom­ized to suit your skin type and en­hance your def­i­ni­tion with body con­tour­ing,” says Ni­cole Hy­att, CEO and founder of Tan on the Run Canada, “It will re­duce the ap­pear­ance of stretch marks, cellulite and im­per­fec­tions, mak­ing you look 10 lbs thin­ner.” Fol­low her tips to take your glow (pro­fes­sional or DIY) to the next level.

BE­FORE

Hair re­moval and ex­fo­li­a­tion are im­por­tant steps to un­der­take be­fore a spray or self-tan. “Do this 24 hours in ad­vance to en­sure pores close back up. You also want a clean can­vas: no mois­tur­izer, makeup or de­odor­ant on the skin prior to tan­ning,” says Hy­att. Her ex­fo­li­at­ing go-to is a mitt rather than an oil-based scrub that can leave a residue.

DUR­ING

Nat­u­ral, sun-kissed re­sults de­mand re­straint. “Choose the right shade for your skin tone, and don’t overdo it. A spray tan or self-tan­ner gen­er­ally takes 8-24 hours to fully de­velop. A lot of peo­ple make the mis­take of over-ap­ply­ing the ini­tial ap­pli­ca­tion think­ing that’s what the fi­nal out­come will look like,” she says.

AF­TER

For a last­ing af­ter glow treat skin with TLC. Hy­att’s check­list in­cludes not get­ting skin wet, or sweaty, for up to 24 hours af­ter ap­pli­ca­tion, wear­ing loose cloth­ing, stay­ing mois­tur­ized and pat­ting skin dry — no rub­bing. A fan of co­conut oil, she rec­om­mends avoid­ing any mois­tur­iz­ers that list wa­ter as the first in­gre­di­ent.
