White Fright!

We have all seen it, heard about it, or been afraid to get it! No, I’m not talking about STD’s, lice, or bed bugs. The topic is the Lindsay Lohan, Jersey Shore, fake bake TAN! If you’re like me and reflect light bright enough to solar panel yourself after a long winter indoors then YOU KNOW the importance of a “quick fix” before you even dare emerge into the great outdoors.

However, no quick fix is worth the snickering and finger pointing a horrible spray tan job brings! Orange skin is never in style and most definitely not alopecia-looking orange splotches. I spent most of my girlhood trying to achieve a golden brown but could never seem to get it.

I went to tanning salons, spray tanned, laid out, you get the point. In my older, wiser, and no longer worshiping-the-sun womanhood I have come to “love the skin I’m in”! However, everyone needs a little pick-me-up from time to time! I’ve finally found a product that doesn’t turn me orange, works with whatever skin tone I’ve got going on, and takes me darker without overexposure to the sun. Take the white out of the winter and go a couple shades darker the safe way! This is definitely my favorite skin product! Do everyone a favor and keep the frightful Great Whites in the ocean and not on the sand.

I recommend the Clarins Self-Tanning Instant Gel or the Clarins Delicious Self-Tanning Cream for normal use. For your face and decollete I recommend the Clarins Liquid Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion.
