Unless you live in a sunny climate, you wait for summer to get a deep, dark tan. And, while some sun exposure is good for your health, extensively exposing yourself to harmful UVA and UVB rays is still a no-no. Tanning beds? Another no-no. What's a suntan-worshipper to do?
There are several self-tanning products on the market. Typically, a self-tanning gel or cream beauty product will give you an uneven tan and, in some cases, an orange color. You'll also have to cover your furniture in plastic because the tan rubs off easily. The exception is Jergens' Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer.
Spray tanning is a more viable option. You can get Mystic Mist-On Tan at a tanning parlor, or you can do spray tanning at home with Salon Bronze, an As Seen On TV discount beauty product.
* Check the label for ingredients that you may be allergic to—as you should do with any product. Typically, spray tanning products are hypoallergenic. Also, they tend to streak so rub on evenly. For best results, spray on in the shower with an old towel underneath your feet.
