A Beauty Must Have: Self Tanner

self tan headerHave you ever heard the phrase “I’m a better person when I’m tan”? Well, this could not be more true of me. When I’m tan I wear less makeup, which leads to clearer skin, which leads to more confidence. Being able to tan – naturally tan – also usually means warmer weather, which is on my list of the top 5 things that make me happy.

Even though I love being tan, as ridiculous as it may sound, I have never used tanning products before; spray tans, beds, self tanner – nothing. I’ve heard way too many spray tan horror stories to even consider getting one & I would never expose myself to concentrated UV rays (#allnatural). As much as I love having that bronzed summer glow, I value having healthy skin even more. So, every winter, I let my tan fade until I nearly resemble Frosty the Snowman.

This year I finally gave into the thought of trying self tanner. I put it on my Christmas list, but hadn’t worked up the courage to actually use it until 4 days ago. What if I completely miss a huge area? What if I look orange in the morning? What if everything that could go wrong, does? Yikes. BUT, in light of one of my New Year’s Resolutions, I was going to be afraid & do it anyway!

My new opinion of self tanner: It’s A-MAZ-ING.

I decided to try Loving Tan after seeing a couple influencers post about it. Yes, I am one of those people that is actually influenced by the products an influencer uses. I’m so glad I went with this brand & I love everything about it!

First off, it smells way too good to be tanning lotion. It has the sweetest vanilla scent that reminds me of my favorite Bath & Body Works candle. It also dries in 60 seconds but, just to be safe, I waited a whole 10 minutes to put real clothes on. I also really loved how easy it was to use for the first time. Loving Tan has a whole page on their website that explains exactly what you should do before, during, & after tanning.

And of course, the color! I was afraid of it being orange or too dark, especially on my face, but the color is perfect & very natural-looking. It’s only been 4 days since I used it, but I don’t have any signs of fading or patchy color. I definitely recommend Loving Tan to anyone who wants to try self tanner, or even if you want to switch from what you currently use!

Now that I know how amazing this self tanner is, I can say it’s definitely a beauty must have!
