I don’t know about you, but Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez always influence me to get a fabulous glow when I see their beautiful and gorgeous tans!!! Unfortunately, I have had my fair share of the tanning to know that getting into a tanning bed is definitely a- NO!
Instead of putting my skin at risk, I decided to take a trip to the drugstore and get my self-tanner on!!!! It's a little publicized secret. A lot of those glowing complexions celebrities sport down the red carpet during awards season are the product of a little clever use of self-tanning products. Let’s face it, we all have a little celebrity sparkle in us, so we all deserve to have a great celebrity glow. Here is what I found to offer the fair skinned celebrities among us the best in the three great self-tanners for the most natural looking results.
Neutrogena Build A Tan Lotion gives a VERY DEEP tan when layering!
Nivea Sunkissed Skin Firming Gradual Tan is great for very fair skin!
Jergens Natural Glow Lotion does not leave streaks and has a nice scent!
All of the self-tanners above are streak free, don’t turn you orange, and give great results. The Neutrogena Tanner does have a MUCH stronger scent, but gives a darker tan than the other two! Jergens Lotion is great for last minute tan. I can put it on quickly and it glides on so even and leaves me streak free. For best results, wash, and exfoliate your body before applying and don’t forget to wash your hands after application or you will have orange hands.
For face application, don’t forget to mask for hydration and exfoliate. Check out my DIY Spa Facial Video here.
So, the next time you want to feel beautiful from a tan, give your skin a break and just give yourself a tan in a tube (or bottle) for a change! Let your inner beauty sparkle and your outward beauty look fabulous!
