While I’m soaking up sun in Ocean City, Md., my DC gal pals are sharing their top-notch summer beauty tips and tricks. You may remember Rebecca Bredholt from my AM to PM series and I’m thrilled to have her back! Today, the former Floridian gives us a guide to self tanners.
Everyone’s skin is so unique, that reading user reviews of tanning products is about as helpful as a set of directions on a shampoo bottle. First, you have to understand what type of skin you have (Snow White? Pocahontas? Princess Jasmine? If it’s the last two, stop reading right here because there’s nothing I can do for you.) Next, you should be aware of the ingredients, and finally be aware of your time frame.
I’m also going to be the party pooper and warn that the older you get, the harder it is for your skin to retain a “sun-kissed glow,” especially if you baked yourself into another ethnic column like I did in my late teens/early twenties. (Wear. Sun. Screen. All. The. Time.)
