I saw a girl on the street the other day while walking home from work, she was wearing a long flowing skirt and a backless halter neck top with her dark brown sun-kissed hair let loose and the most amazing deep tan that you get only from laying for hours on the beach for days on end.
Sadly I don’t remember the last time I spent a consecutive 5 days or more laying on the beach letting the sun drench me with color. Don’t get me wrong I’ve been on vacation several times this year but ever since moving to London five years ago, I seem to be quite unlucky with seeing sunshine. I don’t think I’ve actually had a California style [actual] summer in at least six years! Before I continue to complain ( I could go on about this topic for a long time), I’m actually writing this because despite my relative lack of sun showers, I actually get complimented on my tan quite often. Mind you, the last time I really worked on my tan was back in May on a trip to Portugal and yes ethnically I’m Mexican so I do naturally have a bit of color but I wouldn’t really call it a ‘golden glow’.
TAN & MOISTURIZE
To get this tan, I use Jergen’s Natural Glow Daily in Medium to Tan every other day on off days using a combination of body oils like rose, almond or avocado. What I love about this tan is that it doesn’t streak AT ALL and it gives you a subtle yet even looking tan that can take you into winter. I also don’t use it on days that I shave my legs as I find tanning cream can seep into your pores and try to exfoliate once a week.
