How to look like you have been in the tropics when you haven’t seen the sun for 3 months…


Pasty Wisconsin White. Seriously there is a name for it. After three months of vitamin D deprivation that is what happens to all Midwesterners.

Case in point: These legs. . If only I had taken my own advice…

I start with a light moisturizer with an spf. I love the Body Shop’sBody shop Vitamin C Spf 30 Glow Protect.

Then I use a good brush to add a subtle bronzer. Physician’s Formula SPF 20 Solar Powder is my choice every single time. (It also has a built in spf).

To add a little glow I rub NARS South beach on my nose and cheeks and voila! kissed by the sun look for my face.
First exfoliate and then add a nice moisturizer before dousing yourself in sunless tanner.
There are two different sunless tanners that I really recommend:
jergensJergens Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse and Neutrogena Micro-mist airbrush sunless tan.
