Do You Feel the Burn

Do You Feel the Burn

By Tammy Kincaid

For many,one of the main reasons for living in Las Vegas is our climate. With an average of 294 sunny days per year, it doesn’t take too long to realize you have to protect your skin or pay the consequences down the road. Of course no one sets out with the intention to acquire a painful sunburn, but often times we tend to forgot our time in the sun for that quest of the perfect tan.

To get your skin ready for a summer glow, the best step is to exfoliate with a good body scrub. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin which allows your skin to absorb moisturizers and sunscreens. This is especially important if you intend to use a sunless tanning product in lieu of sunbathing. If you have ever tried a sunless tanning product, you know how inconsistent the color can be without proper product selection and body preparation.

If you are new to self-tanning products, I suggest you try one of the highly rated brands such as St. Tropez. St. Tropez has a Tanning Essentials Self Tan Starter Kit (available at Sephora for $25) that includes everything you will need to get that sun kissed glow.

Remember no matter which product you choose,nothing can completely undo the damage of too much sun. Always wear sunscreen while having fun in the sun this summer!
