And All Aglow
By Lisa Link
Personally, I've never understood the cult of deeply tanned
saddlebag anyone?) but I think everyone loves the glow their skin takes on
in the summer. Even with the religious use of sunscreen, your skin will
darken during the summer simply because increased light results in
heightened melanin production.
Even if you have a winter wedding planned,
there are still products that will give your skin a golden cast. While I
would avoid self-tanner or bronzing powder (which might rub off on light
fabrics) you can mix bronzing gel or liquid with your regular lotion and
apply it normally.
Glamazon by Benefit Cosmetics
($26.00 for .5oz at BenefitCosmetics.com),
and Bonne Bell Bronzing
Gel ($3.50 for 1.1oz at BonneBell.com)
are both good bets.
This lotion/bronzer combination will give you a
subtle tint that shouldn't rub off (but, I'd try it first with white shorts and
a white t-shirt, just to be sure).
