Self-Tanning in Preperation for a Winter Vacation.

As you read this, I am on a jet plane on my way to the very south of Florida. I cannot tell you how much I need this vacation. The alone time away with my husband and warm weather is something I am definitely looking forward to.

In the last few days up until my winter vacation, I have been doing some major skin prep, which includes exfoliating and self-tanning. We know how bad tanning beds are for us even though this is how I would prep in the "old days". But like I said, these days it is all about self-tanning and with so many great self-tanners on the market, there is no good reason not to give them a try when going after a beautiful golden glow.

For my face, I am using a combination of Bella Bronze Golden Chamomile & Goats Milk Self-Tanner* for the face & body, on my face. Of course, I am using bronzer, and the one I use is specifically for bronzing and self-tanning. Remember Mally Beauty Bronze Genius Self-Tanning Bronzing Powder? I love it, and it is what I am depending on to keep my face looking golden right now.

For my body, I am using my favorite - cannot recommend this one enough - Luminess Tan Airbrush System *, along with Clarins Delicious Self-Tanning Cream* on my legs as well. This ensures a darker shade on my legs, along with an even application.

If you are heading to warmer weather this winter and are in need of a quick, faux glow, I hope you will check out my recommendations. And I hope you protect your skin with an SPF of at least 30, which I will be doing too.

This tanning oil gives my favorite color, I love it, really good
Good thing I live in a tropical country.... I don't need any tanning lotions to get a tan. :)
That's a good practice for people that are planning to get tan. This is a good example too and must be done with preparation. Your story is great, I think we need to be ready in all the things that we need to plan in ourselves. The main reason why preparation must be done is because we do not want to have mistake, it is better to be prepared than not to be prepared because effort is also the best in a human attitude. More power to you and keep sharing stories like that.
Thank you all for chiming in with your comments.
