So I am pale. I am petit, punctual and very pale. I also like alliteration, but that is besides the point. Yes, I am pale, and so while I love summer to death, it is a dreaded season because it’s when everyone darkens up to that perfect glow-y version of their skin and I remain about equivalent to Casper the friendly ghost.
So, in that light, I wanted to share some tips, if you too suffer from some serious #PaleGirlProblems
- Jergen’s Natural Glow — I know, I know everyone so-called “swears by Jergen’s” so you’ve probably heard this tip often and to an annoying extent but I promise 2 things. First being that it actually gives you a nice glow-y color to your already natural color and it is gradual so you won’t all of the sudden look like Snooki. You’ll just gradually look like Snooki. Secondly, they fixed the smell, now it smells actually kind of good. So yay!
- Comodynes Self Tanning Intensive — I used these last year and they were awesome! I have yet to re-purchase them for this season, but I have full intensions to. You get a giant wipe that you apply in a circular motion to your skin, and in a few hours, you have a nice real-tan looking glow. It was amazing. I wish I had them now.
- Application tips — It’s not rocket science to know that you need to apply self-tanner to clean, exfoliated skin. Always apply in a circular motion. If you can, apply it naked and give it a few minutes after application to dry and soak-in, that way your not accidentally getting it on your clothes and your not smudging it.
If you’re a pale girl living in a tan world, like I am, I give you a shout out! Happy safe sun-bathing! XO – B.
