This weeks posts brought up several comments which reminded me of another important summer essential for me. Each woman has unique needs but some may be ones you haven’t thought of. Today I’m sharing another summer essential that isn’t in my wardrobe it’s in my bathroom.
I have extremely fair skin. I gave up exposing my skin to the sun many years ago. My legs are glaringly white which can cause the blue veins to stand out like on a roadmap. Self-tanners were a dismal failure when I was younger so I avoided them and used baby oil with a splash of iodine which promised to “dye my skin”. That was also a major fail and only succeeded in marinating my skin for the resulting sunburn.
I have used this Jergens Glow for many years but decided to see what was new on the market. I am happy to report that self-tanners have come a long way!
St. Tropez makes an extensive line that is very popular.
I zeroed in on this shower version that tans you gradually. You apply it in the shower and rinse off in 3 minutes. Products that build color slowly seem to work best for me because it allows more control over how dark it gets.
This Tan Luxe line is cruelty-free, vegan and free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
These Illuminating Self Tan Drops contain Raspberry Seed Oil, Vitamin E, and Aloe Vera. You mix a few drops with your moisturizer or face serum to produce a subtle tan without any odor.Isle of Paradise is a new line that is vegan, cruelty-free and organic. It is hugely popular and has great reviews. They offer a mousse, spray, and drops for light, medium, and dark tan.
The drops are added to your face and body moisturizer for ease of application. They also offer this Magic Tan Eraser in case you use too much or want to start over.
This self-tanner contains an SPF of 40 so you get two for the price of one.
I decided to switch up from my Jergens Glow to try the Isle of Paradise. I like that it’s organic and I’m trying to avoid as many chemicals as possible. I will keep you posted.
Have you discovered the joys of self-tanner? Which ones do you like?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
