A suntan has an amazing ability to hide skin imperfections like spider veins, wrinkles and even that nasty thigh cellulite is diminished appearing. I feel with a tan, personally, it gives the illusion of being thinner overall.
But with the real sun's rays, comes damage that causes premature aging, wrinkles and skin cancer. Thus, doing a sunless tanner makes total sense.
True story, once I got a spray tan, and I looked like an oompa loompa. Definition of oompa loompa: A Native of Loompaland, usually tending toward attributes of small size, an orange complexion as noted in the characters of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. There are many products out there that will leave you orange, streaky, greasy, and stinky.
Fortunately Rodan + Fields have done the research and have formulated a product that works well leaving a smooth natural looking tan. The product is called Essentials Foaming Sunless Tan and it retails at $24.
It is formulated using RF-DCELL Technology which basically calms frenzied cells and extends the duration of your sunless tan. I recommend that prior to applying the Sunless Tanner, you first exfoliate the area with Rodan + Fields Micro-dermabrasion Paste (Retail $78). And to extend the duration of your tan, you moisturize daily with Essentials Daily Body Moisturizer(Retail $24).
Here's to a heatlhy, happy glow! Have a great week!
