How to Use a Bronzer
Q: Once I've reached a tan I like using a bronzer, should I continue to use the bronzer to maintain that color or can I tan without it to maintain?
Most bronzers have instructions for maintaining the color you want and should be followed accordingly to keep the color you desire.
In fact, depending on the formulation of the bronzer you used, attempting to maintain a tan could be more difficult because the product may contain strong sunscreen or pigments which could physically block the sunís rays from penetrating the skin.
