How can I get the perfect sun-safe tan?
I hate to break it to ya, girlie, but the only safe tan is a fake tan. “Real” tanning, whether you get it while sitting in the sun or lying in a tanning bed, damages your skin even if you slather on the sunscreen. That can cause bad burns, wrinkles, sun spots and even cancer. Who wants that? Not us!
To get a healthy, sun-kissed glow, try using bronzer during the early spring months and a sunless tanning lotion as summer creeps closer. The Jergens Natural Glow line is our top product pick, and comes in a variety of formulas depending upon your skin tone.
One more thing before I sign off: To keep your skin fresh and young, you should always wear sunscreen on your face and body. Even if it’s cloudy, your skin can still be damaged by UV rays sneaking through the atmosphere. And from one porcelain princess to all the others out there: Pale is pretty! Embrace your skin tone, sweeties.
