How to get a Glowing Summer Tan in Fall and Winter

I’ve always been obsessed with a good summer tan.  I feel that I look my best and my skin is always glowing after a nice day at the beach or laying out by the pool.  Unfortunately, the temperatures in the midwest have been much cooler lately, and besides my recent trip to Arizona, I haven’t been able to lay by the pool in a long time.  My skin is naturally very fair and other than during the summer, my skin is as pale as a ghost (I have my Polish nationality to thank for that)!

Since some time in high school, I’ve been striving to get a nice summer tan all year round.  Living in the Chicago area in particular made this difficult because for much of fall, winter, and spring, it is cloudy!  I’ve tried it all – gradual tanning lotions, tanning mousses, and even tanning beds.  Easily one of my biggest regrets in my entire life was going to tanning beds in high school.  Granted, I didn’t do it often, but it is such a bad thing to do.  It can age your skin and cause skin cancer.  Why I ever thought that was a good idea, I’ll never know.  

Other than tanning beds, I’ve also tried countless lotions and mousses.  Some turned my skin orange (NOT a good look if you ask me) and others ended up not working or smelling really bad.  It wasn’t until recently that I found a much better alternative.

Tanceuticals Self Tanning Body Lotion has been THE BEST tanning product that I have ever tried.  All you have to do is put it on at night, sleep, and wake up with beautiful, tan skin.  How easy is that?!  It actually smells good, and I prefer the scent of this over some of my actual body lotions.  Basically, if you like the smell of coconuts and the beach (who doesn’t), then this is perfect for you.

I am using the body lotion in dark and there are are other color options to choose from in case your skin tone is different than mine!  Also, as a side note, none of these pictures have a filter because I want you to be able to see the exact color and tone of the product.  It truly is natural looking and looks as if I have a summer tan!
