Go for the Glow

Written on June 7, 2011 at 9:18 am , by

Ladies, we all know how important it is to stay safe in the sun, but who doesn’t want a nice glow? Well, it’s time to kiss the damaging sun oils goodbye and say hello to the myriad self-tanner options on the market. Since choosing among the bounty can be daunting, I put together a list of my favorite options:

BEST INSTANT TANNER: L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion in Deep Natural No need to worry about looking orange with this one; a perfectly bronze shade developed within a few hours.

BEST GRADUAL TANNERJergens Natural Glow Foaming Moisturizer This lightweight foam subtly enhanced my skin tone in less than a week—and spread on so easily.

BEST RINSE-OFF: MAC Cosmetics Skin-Sheen Leg Spray When my legs need an extra boost for a little black dress, I spray this transfer-resistant tint on, and it washes off in my next shower.

    LOVE this blog. I actually was in need of some instant shade for an office event last night, and i happened to stumble upon this blog yesterday…just in time. i ran over to target and grabbed sublime bronze-it worked wonders and my husband even complimented!

    Alex, if you would take the time to do some research, you would learn these lotions are harmless if used appropriately…unlike the sunlight.

    Thanks fitness and kelly!!

    This is so great! I got extremely burnt at the beach the other week, so I wish I had listened to this advice and tried one of these products, instead of killing my skin. Thank you, Kelly and Fitness!!
