We love the hot summer sun as much as the next girl, but we hate what it does to our skin. The blisters, peeling, pain, redness, wrinkles and sunspots don’t really appeal.
It’s possible to obtain the same bronzed glow while sitting under a nice shady tree or beach umbrella, with a little help from an arsenal of fake tanners. (more…)

Tanned skin makes you look healthy and maybe even a tiny bit more fit, but UVA and UVB rays permanently damage the skin. The safe way to get bronzed is to fake it. Sunless tanners have improved leaps and bounds over in the last few years.
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is the most common active ingredient in sunless tanning products. It reacts with your outermost layer of skin to temporarily darken it. The colour won’t wash off but will eventually fade with exfoliation in five to seven days.
For the best results, and to avoid zebra stripes, use a tone that matches your skin’s shade. The darker colours will give you faster results but won’t look as natural. Exfoliate and shave your legs before you apply any product, and wash your hands afterwards. Try using less on areas with thick skin, like around the feet, elbows and knees. These spots tend to absorb more product. (more…)

The perfect solution – TanGlo from Isomers – is a light daily moisturizer with DHA that builds a subtle sun kissed glow over time. There is no risk of pesky zebra stripes, the dreaded orange hue and it won’t leave you sparkling like a 14-year-old party girl. Colour builds naturally and leaves you looking gorgeous!
There is a hint of scent when the lotion is first applied but it is not that stinky chemical smell associated with most other self-tanners.
Tip: wash hands well after each application.
