just say no...

To tanning beds that is. I consider tanning a drug. It’s addicting, harmful, and while “under the influence” of faux UV rays you probably think you look better then you actually appear.

Like most girls in their young twenties/late teens I was a big ole fan of the “fake and bake” tanning technique. There was just something about going to the tanning salon and frying my skin for a mere 15-18 minutes (depending on the bulbs, obvi) that was so addicting. It wasn’t until a few years ago when I finally snapped out of my twenty-something naive phase and I realized that (gasp!) tanning was actually bad for me! Yep, I was That Girl in my younger twenties but, thanks to the good Lord above, I am not her anymore. I’ve been “tanning bed free” for over a year now and my skin has never felt so healthy.

Giving up those UV rays doesn't mean you have to give up on a beautiful tan (yes, I’m that shallow and need at least a hit of a tan year ‘round). Lucky for us in today’s market sunless tanning products are better than ever! Gone are the days of applying self-tanner, only to end up looking like any member of the Jersey Shore cast.

One way to avoid dark streaks and orange hands is to get a professional airbrush spray tan but those can get pricey, so here are some fabulous products that are great for giving you that sun-kissed look all year:

Please don't sacrifice your health and your youthful skin to be bronze. Try self-tanning once - I promise you won't be disappointed!

P.S. If you’re looking to get a great professional spray tan in the Dallas area, give McKenzie at Phillip K. Thomas Salon a call. She’s awesome!
