A Tanning Update, Spring Fashion, and a $250 Giveaway!


Nearly a month ago, I shared my bad tanning experience as a fair-skinned girl who just wanted a decent glow. After one too many mishaps with streaky, smelly tanner that wore off to create the illusion of a tan body suit, I had given up on achieving a cancer-free tan. Since then, I've hopped back in the self-tanning saddle, using a trio of products from Jergens to prep my pasty pallor for spring from head to toe.

As a resident of the Midwest, the warmer (read: 30+ degree weather) hasn't compelled me to bring out the short sleeves and skirts just yet. Instead, I find myself wearing less scarves...it's progress! To make sure the little skin that's showing is bronzed, I've been using the Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen on my face, and the Daily Moisturizer on any neck, shoulder, or décolleté that might be showing. While I find I can apply the body moisturizer once a day to steadily build a tan, I need to apply the face moisturizer twice - morning and night - because of how frequently I was and exfoliate my face. Still, both were effective and I achieved the results seen below within 4 days! I even had to switch to my summer foundation.

Occasionally, the weather will decide to perk up and hop above the 30 degree mark. Don't worry - I don't get caught with pale arms! Although it requires a little bit of forethought, if I anticipate wanting to wear short sleeves I will hop on the fast track to tan with the 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer. After applying one healthy dollop on my arms after a shower, I develop a streak-free glow that nearly matches my face and neck at the 4 day mark.

Still, while I'm loving the healthy, natural glow I've been sporting lately, I'm ready to move this tan party to the rest of my body. This time next month, I hope to be rocking the spring ensemble pictured above and have a streak-free glow to match! A scoop-neck, knee length dress with 3/4 sleeves? I'm not worried about it. I'm more concerned that the temperature won't break 50...
