How To Use A Tanning Oil

Before using a tanning oil, it’s important you know tanning oils usually don’t contain sunscreen, and they won’t prevent sunburn. (This is true for our Cocco Tanning Oil.)

With those two facts in mind, use caution when tanning by limiting the amount of time you are exposed to the sun, or tanning beds, as repeated and/or prolonged sun exposure, or indoor tanning, can increase skin aging and your risk of developing skin cancer.

Here are 7 steps for properly applying a tanning oil:

Step 1: Start with a clean body. If you’re at the beach, dust off any loose sand.

Step 2: Pour a small amount of the oil into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together.

Step 3: Massage the oil over your entire body in a gentle massaging motion.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until your entire body is covered.

Step 5: Stay indoors, under your umbrella, for a minimum of 10 minutes to allow the tanning oil to soak into your skin.

Step 6: Tan for ten minutes on each side of your body; that’s 20 minutes per day. Avoid sun exposure between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm as during those hours that’s when the sun’s burning rays are the strongest.

Step 7: Rinse off the tanning oil, pat your skin dry, and apply a moisturizing sunscreen lotion.

By using your tanning oil in this way, it will take you longer to achieve that dark tan you desire, but it will also last longer.

Lisa Vaughan from Baltimore, MD... I use all in the facial system (except haven't tried, but just ordered a clay mask) including the serums and creams. The Lavender products work wonderfully for my--- middle aged skin. This system is by far superior to any I have used prior! I chose Barista, as it's my favorite, but close second is the toner. My face truly thanks you, byvalenti~... Read More Testimonials...
