How To Tan Dark Skin
If you have dark skin that has an ashy or grey tone to it, it is easy to even out your skin tone using a self-tanner. Abigail Oleck shows how easy it is to tan black or brown skin using just a few key tanning products.
So, now, I'd like to talk to you about how to tan black and brown skin. Now, recently, I was really lucky enough to work on the Miss Great Britain final and there were 60 of the most beautiful girls in Britain, including Miss Black Britain, and we got talking and she explained to me how that, sometimes, black skin can have like a greyness to it, almost like an ash tone to it, and this is because it hasn't been exposed to the sun. So, she finds, especially her arms and her top half of her body and her face that has been exposed to the sun, will have a slight yellow tone to the black skin.
But where she's been wearing jeans and tights all winter as we all did, it's going to have more of an ash tone. So, what she uses is the number four to really boost the yellow tone into black skin. And what she'll first do is apply the number four all over her legs, which will then even out the skin tone, and then she'll take the number one and the number one is the lightest amount of fake tan; it's just one percent of organic DHA.
It's also organic aloe vera, coconut oil and sunflower oil, so it's super moisturizing for the skin, and she used that over her whole body to even out skin tone. So even though I haven't got the beautiful Miss Black Britain here today, I have got the lovely beautiful Charlotte, and her legs have been tanned so I'm going to show you exactly how to apply tan to black or brown skin. Okay, so with all tanning products, you must exfoliate and hydrate.
So, basically, this is an organic aloe vera spray with fruit acids. Then I'm just going to take my buffing mitt and give your legs a little buff, and what we're left with is super, super hydrated skin, and to that, I'm going to apply a very light amount of fake tan. Now, four percent is a very light to medium amount of percentage of DHA, as Charlotte has about an eight percent on her here, so four percent is just adding a hint of gold tone.
Now, this product also has organic aloe vera, shea butter, and cocoa butter, so it's super moisturizing. And when you add this to black or brown skin, this four percent DHA product, what it does is add that little bit of yellow tone to the skin, just take away any ash tone or gray tone. And having ingredients like organic aloe vera, shea butter, and cocoa butter, it's super, super moisturizing.
And that's how easy it is to apply. So, there you go. I've just shown you how to tan black or brown skin. .
