Some of you may recall that a few years ago I experienced the worst sunburn I have ever seen and I honestly can’t imagine one worse. I was taking a medication because of the gallbladder issues I was having, and whereas most medications typically come with a sun warning, this one did not. We went down to Florida for a wedding and despite wearing sunscreen and only staying on the beach for about an hour and a half at the beach or so, I had giant infected blisters covering my arms. After my parents forced me to visit an emergency room I learned that my arms were covered in second degree burns, and in addition to some heavy pain medication I also received burn cream. This was not really a life highlight and is certainly something I never want to experience again, so I RARELY go out in the sun these days. While my arms usually get a little bit of color during the summer, my legs are almost always pasty white.
While I’ve tried self tanners, I’m not a huge fan of them. The primary reason is because I’m lazy and never want to take the time to either properly apply the tanner or let it dry. Instead, I prefer products that fake a golden glow without any thoughts of longevity. Dry oils, shimmers and spray on bronzers are my ultimate summer indulgence that I typically pull out during warm months that fake the illusion of a summer glow, if not a full summer tan.
Ready for some faux summer sun? Here are some products that help you fake a golden glow on your legs for as little or as long as you want.
