I wanted to share my essentials for getting that summer glow! I have been getting so many compliments on my tan & I want to share what I do so you guys can glow & thrive 🙂
First things first, WEAR SUNSCREEN. My absolute favorite is Hawaiian Tropics. It smells like coconuts & has a slight shimmer. It’s a light formula, so I never feel sticky! Fun fact: I hated wearing sunscreen as a kid because I didn’t like the smell & gross feel of it! I have linked the exact one that I use & it’s perfect. It has just enough to protection for my skin, but allows me to soak up the sunshine to get a tan.
After I put on sunscreen, I lather on the tanning oil. I like to use Banana Boat Protective Tanning Oil. It contains sunscreen as well, so there is some protection.
To be honest, I’ve always had an on/off relationship with tanning. When I was in high school, all I wanted was to be DARK no matter what it took. I was a lifeguard & then spent time tanning even on my days off. I probably didn’t always take precautions like I should of because I was so focused on just getting tan. I have thought about getting spray tans, but they seem like so much maintenance. But I have finally realized the importance of sunscreen & don’t go tanning without it! Being tan is amazing, but not at the expense of your health!
Do you get spray tans, or like to tan naturally? Let me know in the comments or DM on social! I’m really curious about spray tans & the cost/maintenance of them, so please let me know!!
