How I Keep the Perfect Tan Year Round

Bali1-1024x682Let’s talk for a second about what the sun does do your skin. To start- most skin cancers are caused by sun exposure and the occurrence of skin cancer is rising. It’s now the most common of all cancers and is occurring at younger ages. UV rays also damage your skin over time. You may not notice it immediately, but in 20 years or so you will start seeing the damage caused by sun exposure. Skin becomes more wrinkled, discolored (age spots), and leathery. It looses it’s elasticity and sags more. Ugh sounds terrible.

We always think about the now though, I want to be tan for summer, I have a big trip I need to be tan for, I look better tan, I look more skinny, I look prettier… the list goes on and on. We’ve always tried self tanners but then we run the risk of the “stinky tanning mom” jokes. How can we ever win?

Growing up in California it’s almost my duty to figure out how to keep a bronzed glow. I researched the best “spray tans” in my area and came across Heather Airbrush Tanning and decided to give it a try. 2 years later I’m hooked. The girls a total delight and perfectionists, they apply the tan slowly and perfectly with an airbush. They’re cute and young and all have perfect tans themselves, so you automatically trust them. Their tanning product is an exclusive patented solution that comes in many different shades (I get the lightest shade because I prefer the most natural look.) And the best thing about the product is that it barely has a smell. I’ve tried every self tanner and spray/airbrush tan out there- and this is incredible.

How it works? I shower in the morning and exfoliate my whole body really really good. Don’t put on any makeup or lotion. Go get the airbrush tan (I go totally nude) but you can also wear underwear. Wear loose clothes and you can’t shower for 6-8 hours then just rinse off your body and you’re good to go. You’ll feel a million times better about yourself and like you’re glowing. It’s worth every penny.

If you’re in the LA area give it a try:

    Self tanning and spray on tans are the way to go. Too many people in LA think its so cool to lay out by the pool but they are the ones who are going to end up all leathery and wrinkly by the time they hit 30.

    I wonder if there is a place like this in England! It is definitely impossible to keep a tan over here – gradual tan is a pain, I will have to do some research!
    Thanks for sharing!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
