After a whopping 7+ years as a lifeguard who RARELY wore sunscreen I can honestly tell you that..well..I'm an idiot for one. But for two? Tanning outdoors, beds or anywhere that damages my skin is really a no go anymore.
A few years back I got laser work done to remove some NASTY deep tissues on my face that were FRIED from tanning.
But...I ALWAYS feel better about myself with a tan!!! So it's kind of a 'catch 22'.
Thank HEAVENS for GOOD self tanning lotions!!!!!!!! That's all I gotta say. YES. My hair and my skin are FAKE. Sorry to burst your bubbles. =)
But I was recently send Beautisol to try out.
They retail for about $40 which is a bit high-but with self tanning.. you GET what you PAY for!!!
Just asked Sinead Norenius-the SelfTanningQueen!
I have to admit-I haven't yet. But I will be sure to share with you what my thoughts are on it.
In the meantime, HAPPY SELF TANNING!
Ok-so I have to tell you I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS PRODUCT!! It's fantastic!
There is no lie when I tell you that in the winter I get seasonal depression. And having COLOR is always a mood booster for me.
So... I always either tan (in a bed, bad I know) or I 'self tan'.
I have been using ULTA tan towels and they were great...till I tried Beautisol!
This makes my tan look 'real'.
PROS: great color, natural look, easy application, no running/smearing
CONS: expensive, blotchy
I am not the best at putting it on. I tend to not blend it in enough. So you have to be careful about that.

Do you 'fake tan'? Nothing wrong with that! You'll feel better about yourself-and look great at the same time!
Be sure to check out their HOW TO videos! I just learned what I was doing wrong that was causing streaking...
