Pasty No More

Spring's late arrival here in good ol' Michigan is really grinding my gears. (Who am I? An 80 year old woman???) Last year around this time, we were experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures and this girl did not mind one bit. Also, last year around this time I was fake baking like no one's business. How do they expect you to pull out the shorts and skirts when your legs are white enough to blind anyone who looks in your general direction?

I've always had bad luck with self tanners, which is why I chose to kill myself slowly in the cancer box. My skin is really dry which means my skin cells sluff off (sorry for the visual) at a higher rate than the average person. I would use self tanner for a week, and the next thing I knew, my skin was all splotchy and uneven. Since I made a vow to stay away from the cancer box this year, I decided I needed to find a self tanner worth investing in -- a self tanner that would work well with my dry skin. All of my research led me to this product:

Fake Bake Flawless Self-Tan Liquid. (Also know as Bronze Goddess in a Bottle. I just made that up...) Fake Bake can be a little pricey compared to your drugstore self-tanners, but it's worth it. I bought my bottle here at a little bit of a discount.

I can't begin to explain how much I love this self-tanner! It's super easy to apply. Once you've exfoliated your skin, you just spray the product on the application mit and rub it all over your body. The application mit makes for super easy and flawless coverage. The bronze tint allows you to see where the product has already been applied so you don't have to wonder if you've already gotten that akward spot in the middle back or not.

Apply the Flawless Self-Tan Liquid daily until you've reach your desired color. After that, apply the product every couple of days to maintain your tan. Make sure to exfoliate your entire body every 5-7 days to help remove the extra dead skin cells.

So, what are you waiting for? Go buy yourself a bottle and become a Bronze Goddess before you're forced to flash those pasty legs. You can thank me later....

Hmmmmm my pasty legs appreciate this tip. I have had typically good luck using Bath & Body Works self tanner, but might have to give this a try!

I use this too! Haven't in awhile because I'm doing laser hair removal and you're not allowed to. But you do really need to exfoliate and moisturize because I still peeled all splotchy. I use the face kind too every day.

I've heard such good things about this product, might have to give it a go this year! Though I am having trouble believing it's spring, but you're a michigan girl, you know how it goes here... hopefully soon!
