I’m always craving a summer glow. All of my clothing looks better when I am kissed by the sun, but my dermatologist warns me about wearing sunscreen and making sure I protect my largest organ from the sun’s rays. Skinny Tan offers a fun alternative: Their products help you achieve a healthy bronzed glow without the harsh UV rays and, as an added bonus, reduce the appearance of cellulite. The company was founded by UK natives and mompreneurs Kate Cotton and Louise Ferguson.
I’m always a little bit of a skeptic about self-tanning products because I’ve tried my fair share of other brands and gotten streaks. With Skinny Tan – and any of the other products – I recommend starting with an area that is covered by some clothing to see how your body reacts to it. I had a light reaction with the 7 Day Tanner Natural. It gave my skin a light glow and worked. It stayed less than seven days because this is the time of year when I shower twice a day due to cycling in the morning and a gym visit mid-day.
