How to Keep Your Skin Glowing All Season (and a GIVEAWAY)!

I have to admit, last year I did my fair share of tanning at a salon in a tanning bed.  I know, I know--it's incredibly horrible for your skin.  Especially for me, since my skin is severely pale (thanks, Scottish roots!)

So this year, I'm trying to go for safer ways to stay glowing.

I'm loving the Self Tan Bronzing Gel from St. Tropez.  It adds just the right amount of color so you can avoid looking bright orange or any other unnatural color.  I really like that it's in a gel form.  It's definitely easier to apply than any other self tanning product I've tried, and it lasts a bit longer too.

Because the gel is already bronze in the tube, it's even easier to apply because you can actually see it on your skin, unlike other tanning products out there.

For the complete look, it does take up to 8 hours to get your glow on.  During that time, you cannot shower.  Personally, I waited about 12 hours, just to be on the safe side.

To apply, exfoliate your skin the best you can.  This creates a nice soft base for the gel to glide on to.  Make sure to moisturize your hands, elbows, knees, ankles, feet, and any light hair that you don't want getting darker.  Those are typically the trouble spots I tend to have when using other products, so for me it was the most important step.  Apply the gel in a circular motion for the best, most even tan.  Also, wait until your skin is dry to the touch before putting on any clothing.  This is so that your tan looks even and your clothing doesn't get an unwanted bronzed look.

Each Bronzing Gel retails for $35.  But lucky for you ladies, I have one tube to give away!!
