Understanding about skin tone is important for all cosmetic purposes and tanning is no exception.
The skin's undertone is the warm, cool, or neutral hue that shows through the surface colour of skin. Although the surface colour of skin changes depending on sun exposure and other skin conditions, the skin’s undertone remains consistent.
Knowing whether your undertone is warm, cool or neutral will assist in making sure your tan matches your skin to deliver the best possible result.
There are several ways to determine your skin tone, but here is a quick method to try:
The Quick Test
Look at the colour of the veins on the inside of your wrist.
Make sure you are examining your wrists in natural light, either standing near a window or outdoors, and that your skin is clean and free of product.
• If your veins appear blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone.
• If your veins appear green, you have a warm skin tone.
• If you can't tell if your veins are green or blue, you may have a neutral skin tone and can have a variety of choice
• If you have an olive complexion, you likely fall into the neutral category.
