My glowing and beautiful olive skinned mother sadly did not pass along her amazing skin to me (thanks a lot mom!)–and tan is something I never am. If I appear so, just know it’s fake (wink, wink!). And while I’ve accepted and really do like my fair skin, let’s be honest, there’s nothing that makes you feel better, and like you really are out and about enjoying that summer sunshine than a nice golden tan. Last week I had a few dinner parties and the dresses I wanted to wear for both occasions really warranted golden skin so I decided to test out the new Jergens Instant Sun Tanning Collection for a little bronzing help!
Jergens and Rory Beca recently teamed up to create the ultimate sun kit which includes this dress, matching tote, and 3 Jergens Natural Glow products for golden, end of the summer skin. (The tan extender really saved me this week–plus it smells good, unlike some sunless tanning products.)
Three tips I’ve learned over the years for making that (fake) golden hue last longer and look the most natural:
One: exfoliate like crazy before applying any sunless tanning products. This skin prep will create the best base for a natural looking glow.
Two: to preserve the life of my tan as long as possible I moisturize like crazy and use tan extending moisturizers throughout the week.
Thank you to Jergens x Rory Becca for collaborating on this post!
