Winter is far over and Spring is in full bloom which also means warmer weather and time to bring out those bare legs and arms. Gosh… and that’s when you realize how “white” you look, at least if you are like me with quite light skin that needs a lot of tanning before just getting a little tan.
When I was younger I had a period of over 10 years where my second home was a tanning centre. I would lay in those tanning grills as I can them now 3 times a week for 30 minute each treatment. I did mange to get a nice tan but as we all know its just not healthy for the skin. Now, years later I can certainly see the damage all that tanning did to my skin with having developed many molls and going to the dermatologist each year for check ups + having had several molls removed – just in case and to be on the safe side. Skin cancer or melanoma is no joke, I do tan a bit under the normal Sun now each Summer but again, I have also accepted my lighter skin color.
I have been trying out several self tanners but other the cream was too thick to apply or the color was too brown or yellow and it would be difficult to was properly of the hands afterwards. I have also tried spray tanning as well, it is nice though but the hassle of having to book the appointment, going there, going home and so on just isn’t for me. I need a good self tan I can do quick at home that gives a nice little natural looking color and this one here the Sunlight InstaGlow self tan is the best I have tried. Its a tinted self-tanning gel so easy and light to apply and gives a natural looking color. What’s also great about is its for both the face and body, so you only need this one gel. And.. one more thing I love about this self tanner is that is does not have that nasty smell many of the other brands have. The sunlight InstaGlow only has a tiny smell to it.
Before applying a thin layer of InstaGlow it’s important to exfoliate your skin first to make sure dead skin cells have been removed and the skin is clean and ready. This will give the best looking result and as InstaGlow is a light self tanning gel you can always apply a second layer to get more color if that is the look you are going for.
