Growing up, I was a tanning bed queen. Like any teenager growing up in the early 2000’s (ok, maybe not any… :-)), tanning beds were an easy fix for pale skin. Living in Florida definitely didn’t help. As strange as it sounds, when you are able to get sun all year around, you are expected to be tan all year around. Who has time for that?!
As I got older and more aware of the skin damaging effects of UV rays, I stopped using tanning beds and started using sunless tanners instead. This is not an easy substitution, as no tanning lotions are made alike. I have found that it is best to start with a bronzing lotion that will wash off, especially if you have an important event.
