Fake It To Make It: Self-Tanning Explained



Tanning is a great way to add some color and glow to your skin. However, indoor and outdoor UV tanning is dangerous and just not worth the risks associated. Self-Tanning is a safe alternative and will allow anyone to have a glowing tan all year long.

Self-tanning saves the day by offering a way to add a natural tan without worrying about harmful side effects. In this article, you will learn why people choose to self-tan, how to best self-tan, and what product you should use for the absolute best self-tanning experience.



There are several different reasons why you may choose to self-tan.


One main reason that people choose to self-tan is to keep harmful UV rays from damaging their skin and increasing the likelihood of obtaining skin cancer.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, UV rays from indoor and outdoor tanning can cause damage to your skin cells. This can cause your skin to not only become brittle and thinner over time but can also increase your likelihood of getting melanoma by nearly 75 percent.

These UV rays are present not only out on the beach but are also found in tanning beds and heat lamps, so tanning isn’t really an option for those hoping to keep their skin looking young and healthy.


Check out these scary indoor UV tanning statistics:


*Indoor tanning for 10+ years increases your risk for melanoma by 145%

*Indoor tanning for 6-9 years increases your risk for melanoma by 89%

*Indoor tanning for 2-5 years increases your risk for melanoma by 65%

*Indoor tanning for only 1 year increases your risk for melanoma by 47%


Another reason why people choose to self-tan is that they can’t find the time to go out and lay on the beach or go to a tanning bed. An effective and efficient alternative is to use a premium self-tanner like REBLX Premium Self tan that is quick and easy to use. Application of the self tan takes very little time and can be applied right before bed. The product will develop overnight between 6-8 hours and your tan is perfect in the morning. Why risk your health with dangerous indoor and outdoor UV tanning when you get a safe and effective natural tan all year long with REBLX.




Using a Self-Tanner like REBLX Premium Self Tan is rather simple.


To begin, make sure you exfoliate to get rid of dead skin. This will free your body of an uneven tan and allow for a streak-free application. Make sure your skin is dry and use your applicator to apply the tanning solution to sections of your skin at a time. See below for the REBLX application tips we suggest.


Step 1: Pre-Trim or Shave in Advance

We recommend shaving any parts of the face or body a couple hours before application.

Step 2: Exfoliate Before Application

Any well-formulated exfoliator body scrub should do the trick. We recommend showering and exfoliating 30 minutes before application. Dry off completely before step 4. 

Step 3: Put Some Vaseline On Your Eyebrows (Optional)

This is a preventative measure for any discoloration potentially cause by our tanning solution. This is an optional step, but it rarely needed for most self-tanning experiences.

Step 4: Use our REBLX self-tanning Mitt for proper Application.

Self-tanning can become a slippery task. Gain more control of your application by wearing our REBLX Self-Tanner Mitt. The Mitt is designed to hold more product, to apply it evenly, the Mitt also serves as a barrier between product and hand. Prepping your body is half the battle, knowing what to do next is just as important.

Step 5: Apply the self-tanner is sections (such as legs, back, face and arms).

 Always massage the self-tanner into your skin in a circular motion allowing the tanner to saturate the skin.

Step 6: Allow the REBLX Premium Self-Tan to set

Allow the REBLX Premium Self-Tan to set for 6-8 hours after your initial application. Applying the self-tanner before bed is a great idea for most. Avoid any contact with water for the 6-8 hours.

Step 7: Rinse-Off and Enjoy the Best Tan of Your Life

After 6-8 hours simply rinse off with water and pat dry. You’re all set and will be looking great! Your tan will gradually get deeper within the next 24 hours. Your REBLX self-tan will last approximately 6-10 days, fading away naturally and gradually. If you are not using our applicator mitt, be sure to wash your hands with soap and water.

Step 8: Always Apply Sunscreen Daily

None of our products contain sunscreen. Always protect your skin daily with a high-quality sunscreen to ensure healthy and glowing skin all year long.
