Sun-Kissed Glow - by Sandy Gold

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Using a self-tanner is one of the best ways to get a healthy sun-kissed glow without the harmful rays of the sun.  But, we all know, if not applied properly - it can be a streaky mess! So to prevent you from looking like a ripe orange - here are some quick and easy tips to help you get glowing from home in minutes!

  • Before exposing your skin to any self-tanning product - it's super important to exfoliate firts.  Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells that lye on the surface of the skin, and when not removed - it can leave it dry and dull-looking and nobody wants that!
  • Make sure to exfoliate from your head toyour toes!  Concentrate on areas that tend to be more dry, like your elbows, knees and feet.
  • If you don't have an exfoliator - try making one from home! All you have to do is mix together organic honey and sugar in a bowl - and viola, a homemade exfoliator in seconds! Yiipppeee!
  • When applying a self-tanner - I like to start at my feet and work my way up - in small circular motions.
  • If you don't like the smell of self-tanners - try applying it at night - so you can shower when you wake up and be fresh and tanned in the morning.
I hope this helped you out! Now, get glowing!

And, don't  forget to Wake.up & Make.up!

The first time I did self-tanning I didn't know I had to exfoliate, so I ended up looking a bit like...a dalmatian. It was the worst experience ever.
