Faux Tan is Chic

Bronze skin is chic, wrinkles at 25 are not. Stay bronze & safe with sunshine in a bottle.

Like the rest of us, I have done my fair share of tanning during my high school years while prepping for prom, homecoming, and major parties I had to look good for. But now that all the excitement of fake tanning has subsided and the scare of wrinkles and age spots have set in, it's time to reevaluate my skin care routine. 

I am most certainly an advocate for being tan (it makes you look thinner, duh) but I have been struggling with the concept of skin cancer vs being tan, so I have finally gave in to fake tanners, even during the summer. I know, I was totally worried about blotchy spots and rub off, but it's actually not what I expected! 

As the song goes, "bronze skin and sing and dance this ain't nothing but a summer jam." Here are some of my favorite face & body tanners. I love love love the NARS bronzer but now have switched to the faux tan bareMinerals powder due to my prior skin issues. The bareMinerals Faux Body Tan is also super cheap and works great! I also do the occasional spray tan at the salon. ;)
