How To Use Olive Oil To Get Tanned Skin
Olive oil is one of the best oils to get tanned. That is mainly because it is nourishing for the skin and it takes comparatively less time to get your skin tanned and thus prevents prolonged exposure to the sun.
What you need
Extra virgin olive oil (as needed)
Tanning bed or chair
A large towel
A small towel
A timer clock
What you need to do
Place a chair or tanning bed out in the sun. Spread the large towel over it.
For your first time, set the timer to 30 minutes. You can change the timer accordingly the next time, based on the way your skin reacts to the process.
Take some olive oil in a bowl.
Dip the small towel into the oil and gently rub it all over the front section of your body. Don't forget to rub it on your face and neck as well.
Start the timer and lay down on your back on the chair that you laid earlier. Close your eyes and relax until the timer goes off.
Now, set the timer for another 30 minutes. Dip the cloth into the oil once again and rub it on the back section of your body. Ensure that you cover your neck and behind the ears as well.
Lay down on the chair again, facing downwards this time around.
Close your eyes and relax until the timer goes off.
Once done, wash your body thoroughly but gently using a mild soap and cold water.
Things To Remember
Don't stay in the sun for too long after you've applied the oil.
Don't rub too much oil to your skin. The oil shouldn't be dripping off your skin.
Make sure to wash off the oil completely after the process is done
