Okay ladies, we all know that feeling of not wanting to show our pasty skin to the rest of the world.
Living in Florida, I always want that fresh summer glow but don’t always have time to lay in the sun all day (some of us have to go to class!)
We all know the dangers of spending too much time in the sun, and tanning beds are of course a definite NO!
So what do you do?
These are my favorite bronzing products that make my skin feel beautiful no matter what time of the year.
We’ve all heard the horror stories about creams and lotions making you look like one of Willy Wonka’s Oompa Loompa’s, but Neutrogena’s Air-Brush cans and Nivea Sun-Kissed Radiant Skin Lotion don’t do that!
Trust me when I say that I have had some bad self-tanner experiences in my life and these are the few products that give me a summer glow without making me feel like a Dorito (yum!)
You can’t have a tan body and a pale face! I recommend a tinted SPF moisturizer, and then a little bronzer! I recommend starting out with a very light bronzer like ELF’s Baked Bronzer (as you can see I’ve used a lot!)
Once you get a little darker, Clinique’s “Sunkissed” True Bronze Press Powder does the trick. I recommend Victoria’s Secret’s Tan-Boosting Powder Bronzer, but use it very sparingly and make sure to blend it really well with a wide Kabuki Brush!
