I am a Happier Person when I am Tan!lol
Not to be Dramatic, but it's true! RIGHT!?! I feel 100x better about myself, what I have to do , Life in general when I have a nice tan! The old saying is if you cant tone it tan it. lol
As true as it is, I can not be cruel to my skin anymore like in my younger days. You know what i'm talking about, right? I know i cant be the only one in my teen years that lathered herself up with baby oil and iodine and thought 15 spf was a big deal! Totally showing my age now!lol Several years ago I went to Self Tanner year round and have NEVER looked back! I of course love a fun day by the pool relaxing but lets be honest, being in the sun doesn't come with skinspots so i'm lathering that 70spf all day!! I am telling y'all Self Tanner is the BEST!
AND to Prove it Here is a Before and After of one of my Fav Tanners! I have tried several over the years but this is the 2, I keep coming back to recently. The biggest thing is finding what undertones work best for your skin. There isn't a one size fits all for everyone, what works for you may not for me and vice versa. We each have different skin tones, types etc. But I will say with a little trial and error and reading reviews you can find the perfect tanner. Right now i really am loving the Venetian tan by Norvell and the 2 hour express tan by Loving Tan.
What You Will Need:
(optional) A Handy Dandy lotion applicator for your back!
Doing your own Tanner
Everywhere you plan on tanning!! This is a serious step and helps your tan go on evenly and last longer. Honestly, I don't use a specific exfoliator. I just grab whats in the shower. Dry off completely after showering using your towel to help exfoliate any other skin not removed in shower.
Apply moisturizing lotion to heels, elbows, knees and hands. These are the driest parts of your body and can tend to soak it up faster and look darker and uneven. applying lotion provides a barrier to those areas for a more even color.
