Living by the beach can suck you into being a sun worshiper. Literally, everyday there is someone laying out on the sand, with their shiny skin soaked in oil, hoping to get that flawless, natural bronze after laying for hours under the sun rays. All I can think of when I see that is: A) Where is your sunscreen? B) How much damage will your skin have by doing that?
I have always been a fan of faux-tans. No, not the fake and bake in the UV light tube that has been proven to be even WORSE for your skin, but the “tan in a can” as some people call it. Now a days, sunless tanning products have become some of the best ways to get tan, leaving that orange tint to the 80s, and giving you one of those beautiful Brazilian glows, that are streak free, using ingredients that are good for your skin!
With today’s beauty technology and advancements, there are so many options to choose from in order to get bronzed, without the requirement of the sun.
I love my vitamin D, but only when I have AT LEAST 30 SPF on my skin.
I’ve tested out quite a few bronzing treatments over the years, and have finally found the most amazing, nourishing, non-oranging, anti-smelling, multi-tasking, beautiful bronze glowing cream I cannot live without.
Infused with nourishing Maracuja oil, this sunless tanner not only creates a beautiful, natural glow, but also replenishes and brightens your skin, giving you that sun kissed look, and touchable, soft, healthy skin. You can have all the luxury sans the sun damage with this universal, deep shade that will never turn orange. They use a patented formula with PUREshield scent control technology, so you won’t be walking around smelling like a stink bomb–its brilliant.
Along with the self tanning gel, they include an application mitt that allows you to apply your tanner with a clean and streak free result (not to mention the absence of stained, brown palms–not cute).
After you shower, exfoliate, and shave, towel off completely. Put the mitt on your hand and apply a quarter size amount of tanner for each leg. Continue to apply as needed to cover your entire body, and then let sit for 10 minutes. You have now began your tanning process. I like to apply 3 times a week to maintain a deep, dark, natural bronze.

I love Tarte because of all of the natural, antioxidant, and mineral rich formula’s they use. Their products aren’t harmful to your skin, and actually help improve your complexion and skin tone. They are gluten-free, don’t have parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium laurel sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances, and are not animal tested. Tarte uses ingredients from the earth, such as super fruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, essential oils, and so many others, which our skin can relate to rather than negatively react to. Not only are Tarte Cosmetics good for your skin, the packaging is pretty cute, too, so any touch ups in public won’t be embarrassing, and you can eco-chic with the glam.
