I’m not a big fan of tanning products, but the beauty industry has to change if it’s going to stay relevant in the 21st century.
I’m all for new products, I’m all in favor of getting rid of old products, and I love the idea of using old clothes for new, but I don’t believe the new products are worth the hassle.
The problem with the tanning industry is that it’s mostly made up of old-fashioned old-school guys.
You know, like me.
This isn’t an easy topic to tackle, so let’s take a look at how to make your own tanning and cosmetics kit.
If you’re looking for a good, simple tanning set, look no further than this Tanning and Cosmetics Kit from The Shave Shop .
For a little more glamour, you can check out the new tanning range from BareMinerals , but I’m definitely not buying into the idea that a “skin-tight, natural tan” is the best way to go.
As I’ve written previously, I find a little extra extra to my routine, but you could just as easily add a good-quality sunscreen or two to the mix, as well.
The Shave Spot, a local business in downtown Asheville, offers some of the most affordable and convenient options for buying and using tanning accessories.
Here’s a breakdown of all the products they offer: Scent: The Sunshine Scents line is a great way to add a touch of shine to your routine without having to buy a ton of products.
Sunglasses: This range from BareMineral features shades that look just as good with a little bit of gloss and a little less shimmer.
Warm Towel: Wet towel is a nice way to keep your clothes and accessories clean.
Face Mask: These masks can be used to remove makeup and make your skin look a little better.
Dry Cleaner: I’ve never been a fan of using dry cleaners to clean up my skin, but if you’re a DIYer like me, this is an excellent way to get some DIY work done.
Gift Wrap: A gift wrap is a handy little wrap that you can wrap around any gift to keep it in your bag.
Shave Oil: If a good tanner doesn’t make your beard or neck look nice, this can be an effective way to make that happen.
Lotion: Any of these brands will make your hands feel really nice when you brush your teeth, so they’re perfect for a quick tan.
Glasses: Whether you want to look super sexy in a bikini, or just want to have a cool tan, these glasses are great for keeping your eyes clean.
Shoes: You can’t go wrong with sneakers, so it’s no surprise that this line from Baremineral offers pairs of shoes for men and women.
Hair: While hair products don’t make for a great tan, they do make a great set of accessories to keep you looking professional. Skincare: Makeup can be messy, and this is definitely the perfect time to invest in a skincare kit.
This one from Baremetals comes with a variety of products to make you feel like you’re always looking fresh.
Hand Balm: Hand balm is an amazing way to give yourself a little boost after a stressful day.
This is especially helpful for people who are prone to sweating.
Aerobic Conditioner: A little extra help with a hot day or two.
Sunscreen: In case you need a little help with your tanning routine, this kit from BareMetals offers a great selection of SPF 30 and SPF 50 sunscreens for men, women, and children. Eyebrows: Using a UV cream or UV gel to correct eyelashes is great for people with darker skin tones.
Breathe Aid: Breath aids are a great option for anyone who’s prone to getting colds or other infections, and they’re also great for your skin when it’s cold.
For a more luxurious tan, you could even try adding a few drops of lavender oil to your face.
Tinting: There’s no denying the importance of a great, natural, and healthy tan, so there’s no need to go all-out and spend $100 for a tanning gel.
This Tinting kit from The Beard Shop is a perfect way to lighten up your look without breaking the bank.
There are a few different types of tinting available, but this one is a little cheaper.
Blow Dryer: This is the perfect way for you to use your old tanning equipment for a change.
There are two types
