There’s no arguing that skin looks better with a little glow. I openly admit it. That said, I’ve never been much of a sun person. I hate feeling hot, have little to no patience and then, throw in that whole skin cancer thing, and I’m pretty much covered from head to toe no matter the temp outside.
I’ve given sunless tanning a fair go. From drugstore sprays to streaky lotions, the only thing that has ever worked was expensive and time consuming visits to a professional technician who knows how to work a spray gun. But even then, you leave smelling bad with a car covered in towels and orange streaks on your sheets.
Truth be told, it’s all too high maintenance for me. So I just sort of accepted that my skin was going to be pale and moved on.
Recently, I was introduced to Tan-Luxe, a line tanning solutions that are meant to help people like me (aka, lazy tanners) finally get the tan without all of the work. Their tailor-made approach works in tandem with your daily body moisturizer to develop a natural, golden glow with minimum effort.
What does that mean? Basically, they have drops that you add in to your moisturizer or body lotions that gradually keep your melatonin in colorful shape over time. No streaks, no stinky visits to the tanning salon. Just a few drops and your daily skincare routine.
They’ve also got a full line of other products – including misting waters, mousses and the ever-addicting gloss (think the shine sticks of your teenage past given an adult update) – to keep your tan fresh and consistent.
Although the line is undoubtedly the easiest, most cost-effective and just effective-effective solution to staying bronzed in the cooler months, rest assured I’ll be it’s biggest fan in the summer as well (see above re: sun aversion). Maybe someone will ask me if I’ve been on vacation, for once.
