Anyone who knows me knows that I love and will do anything to try new self-tanning options, and I’m always looking to get my hands on the best self-tanner. Luckily I got my hands on some of my favorite products for this summer and they all have to do with self-tanning. It is true that self-tanning or fake tanning is not for everyone, and if you do not have the patience or the time to really apply it in a “responsible” kind of way, self-tanners are not for you. We can always search the web for articles that will keep us informed, help us improve or even help to make the experience less chaotic. For me, self-tanning is the safest and easiest way to achieve an amazing golden look without having to spend hours under the sun or minutes in a tanning bed – YIKES! All I can think about is sweating! God, do I hate sweating.
Last week I started using these amazing self-tanning pads from Dr. Dennis Gross; they come individually wrapped for our convenience. The first day I used the Body Exfoliating Self-Tanner and I noticed a change in my skin tone three hours later. Same reaction with the face pads, it not only gives you that amazing summer tan and glow but the best thing is that these also exfoliate, helping with any uneven skin tone and large pores. You know you are making the right investment when you can benefit from something more than once. These amazing pads won Allure Magazine’s 2011 Best of Beauty Award for Best Facial Self-Tanner. I cannot stop bragging about these and especially since I got so many compliments on my tanned skin this past holiday weekend. I knew I made the right choice when I decided to try these before such an eventful holiday!
Another favorite product is the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare – Alpha Beta Daily Glow Moisture is one of those products that feel very elegant when you apply it on your skin. It smells very summery and after a couple of days you start seeing a change in your complexion. This product has so many great things working for it that I can’t think of using anything else this summer. It contains amazing antioxidants to help prevent collagen breakdown as well as vitamin D to help with dry skin; however it is so light that you can barely feel having anything on you. I know for us, people with dry skin, we are very skeptical about trying and using light-texture products; however, with summer just around the corner it feels wonderful! I used this product along with my face pads and I love the way my skin has been glowing ever since.
