Summer is sadly winding down. I’ve been MIA for the past couple of days because I moved into my new dorm, and today classes started. Ew. Anyway, laying out at the beach is no longer an option until June 2012. Here are the best options for keeping a sun-free year round tan!
I love love love Jergens Natural Glow moisturizer. I bought this years ago when it came out, and it’s always been consistent in results. Jergens as an entire natural glow line with many different products, you can check it out here. My favorite is Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer, I use the medium to tan…but if you’re on the pale side I suggest you start with the fair to medium so you don’t have any orangey-ness.
I use this every time I get out of the shower, it slowly builds the tan…but after a week you’ll notice a difference. This is def one of the best self tanners, it won Allure’s Best of Beauty Award for 2010 and 2011. It’s also been mentioned in and has won awards from Teen Vogue, Self, Seventeen, and Glamour magazines!
Another one of my favorites is Neutrogena MicroMist Airbrush Sunless Tan. It’s not a lotion, it’s an actual spray so it may be a little more difficult if you’re not used to this. I use the deep tint, but I honestly don’t use this product that much. I get a spray tan regularly…so I usually just use this as a touch-up for that.
I really like the way it applies, it doesn’t streak or leave you orange. You just need to be careful in how you spray…but there are websites that give great advice when you’re doing a self airbrush. I also really like this product because it dries super quickly, you don’t need to worry about having to wait more than 5mins for it to be fully dried.
Once again, if you’re fair you haveeee to start out with the medium — going right to the dark formula won’t leave you very pretty.
You can find both of these products at any drug store…CVS, Walgreens, Duane Reade…they all have them!
