Summer is right around the corner, which means it's time to break out the self-tanner and get a nice, even glow with such as Beauty by Earth Self Tanner.
But before you slather on that sunless tanning lotion, there's one important thing to keep in mind: you don't want to stain your bed sheets! Here's why:
Self-Tanner can be Tough to Get out of Fabric
Even if you're careful to avoid getting any on your bed sheets, chances are good that you'll end up with at least a few streaks or smudges. And once self-tanner dries, it can be next to impossible to remove. So unless you want to deal with stained bed sheets, it's best to err on the side of caution and use a dark towel or old sheet, or you can use our Tan Fan Self Tan Sleep Sac.
Self-Tanner can Transfer onto Your Skin and Your Sheets
Have you ever woken up in the morning after applying self-tanner only to find that your skin has a weird orange tint? That's because self-tanner can transfer onto your skin—and your bed sheets—as you sleep. To avoid this, make sure you allow the self-tanner to dry completely before getting into bed. Otherwise, you may end up with some nasty-looking stains—and an uneven tan.
Self-Tanner can Leave Behind a Funky Smell
Let's face it: self-tanner doesn't exactly smell great. In fact, some people say it smells like fish! If you don't want your bedroom smelling like a beachside bait shop, make sure to ventilate the room well before and after applying self-tanner. Otherwise, you may find yourself sleeping in a fishy-smelling mess.
Self-tanning is a great way to get a summertime glow without spending hours in the sun—but it's important to be careful! To avoid stained bed sheets, transferrable color, and a funky smell, make sure to use a dark towel or old sheet to protect your linens, allow the self-tanner to dry completely before getting into bed, and ventilate the room well before and after applying self-tanner. With these simple tips, you can enjoy beautiful, bronze skin all summer long—without ruining your bedding in the process!
