Tanning for the Cold Seasons

  Okay, so it has been a while.  But a lot has been going on!  Not only have we been crazy, crazy busy for the months of September and October, but half of the Bliss Team moved to France!!  So we have been adjusting our duties and continuing to move forward.  It has been a little bit of a transition, but we are doing it!  Anyway, enough of that, how about some tanning? 
I don't know about all of you, but as the seasons get colder, I get whiter.  And not a pretty Nicole Kidman white.  Like an ashy ghost white.  I never feel very pretty when I am stark white, or thin for that matter.  And I am the Bliss half that is living in France, so needless to say, I see the sun even less!  So here are some of my tips to get that sun-kissed glow during the coldest months of the year. 

1.) Spray Tan!  Hello, this is the best possible way to do it.  I know that people are daunted by the idea of the spray tan because of many orange pictures you might have seen.  Well there is a reason they are orange.  Either they are getting the airbrush too much, or they are getting a color that is wrong for their tone, or the tanner just had a bad solution.  Find someone you know and trust who you know the solutions work for your skin and stay faithful.  It won't look fake. 

2.)  Apply a good tan extender.  You can find some at any tanning salon or online.  I am sure you can get some tinted moisturizing at any drug store too.  Just make sure you watch as you are applying it.  It is meant to help your tan fade smoothly, you just don't want to have it turning you orangey looking!

3.) Moisturize.  Even if you are white as a ghost, there isn't anything worse than being ashy white.  Like flaky and everything.  So if you get a good cream-like moisturizer that you apply daily, you will be good to go.  Combine moisturizing with the spray tan, you are golden.  Literally!

4.)  Bronzer.  But not too much.  Applied wrong or in excess, it could be the problem for the orange.  But if you get a good bronzer and you apply lightly on your face and neck, it helps a ton. Christian Dior has a good bronzer. 

Those are my main tips!  Now get out there and get bronzed!  But do it right, because people will know if it isn't done right.  Stop in for an airbrush tan when you have time!
