So a little confession… I’m a total self-tanner junkie. And before you judge, I don’t mean like Jersey Shore self-tanning, I just mean that sometimes in the dead of winter I like a little glow to my skin. And HELLO, it’s better than baking myself in the sun! Being bi-racial, I was blessed with a nice golden glow MOST of the time, without having to fry myself in the sun, but when it starts to snow, my skin apparently wants to match the color of the falling flakes. I’m all for Snow White doing her pale thing, but I don’t know if it’s for me.
Though I have a slew of self-tanners, I’m a little on the picky side about which ones I use. I want a natural, moisturizing tan to my skin, not orange-y, blotchy, or sticky. I’m most recently infatuated with Evolv. Sunless at home self-tanners because they contain the superstar ingredient: Tea Tree Oil. This at home regimen includes:
Evolv. Body Scrub ($24)- This scrub is ideal for use before at-home or professional tanning to moisturize the skin, and to slough away dead skin cells for a smooth, even finish.
Evolv. Daily Glo Moisturizer ($28)- Ideal for self-tanning rookies or well-seasoned tanners alike. You just use this after the shower like you would use any other moisturizer, but this one makes your skin glow like no other.
Evolv. Sunless Spray ($39)- This is the mayor of the at-home sunless tanning sprays. The Tea Tree Oil is soothing, cooling, and nourishing. Just hold the can 6-8 inches away from the skin and spray away! This is great for any upcoming holiday parties you have coming up, especially if you’re wearing a leg-baring dress (as I intend to do).
