Seriously I am so pale, I make vampires look dark. So when it comes time for summer I always seek that warm summer glow but often can’t get it without the burn. I am also not the biggest fan of tanning cause well, I want to freeze my face at 30.
When I tanned for my wedding I went all out, I used both tanning beds sunless tan. I knew I just had to be a deep dark brown so I looked amazing in the dress. After the wedding I decided I would freeze the account in case I wanted to go back and tan. So for $7.50 a month I froze my account and just let the dollars accumulate into my account. That was three years ago, I realized this the other day when I went to look at my credit card statement and saw the freeze charge.
I was like heck yeah, I can tan this summer. I have tons of tan dollars. Then I remembered that I am focused on using cruelty free products, and immediately I thought whoa… is Mystic tan cruelty free????
Why yes, yes it is.
In fact, it is …
Gluten Free • Paraben Free • Cruelty Free • Non-Comedogenic
YAY! So I decided I would spray tan and then continue to use it through the summer for that lovely glow without the burn. I can use SPF 50 all summer and not burn, woohoo!
So here let me show you some silly selfie before and after pics (cause I love silly selfie face, YOLO)
Before I am pale and pale
I am stuck in a cubicle in the second pic so that is why I have that face, welcome to my life peeps. It does have a slight red hue, but I have gotten numerous compliments with this tan. In fact, one of my co-workers said “I don’t know what it is about you lately, but you have gotten so pretty” Not sure if I should be offended or not… but eh I will take what I can get.
If you spray tan, make sure you exfoliate well and shave & wax BEFORE you get your tan, afterwards make sure you moisturize. There are so many tips out there so research and find the best for your skin type. I forgot to really moisturize and wash my hands so I have “spray tan” palms. Whoops. Oh well, I will live. 🙂 So don’t be like me, make sure you scrub scrub scrub.
Do you like spray tanning????
