As much as I love the sun, I know how dangerous it can be. A self-tanner is always the safest option to achieving that gorgeous, golden glow. I am currently obsessed with The Great Pretender ($23) self-tanning product from Origins. It is easy to apply and doesn’t streak. Color appears instantly and continues to develop over several hours. It even leaves behind just a hint of shimmer. The product dries quickly so you don’t have to worry about any excess color rubbing off on clothes. And, best of all, it smells great with hints of orange and peppermint.
To apply, be sure and exfoliate skin first, then apply liberally and blend using upward motions. Make sure to wash your hands immediately following application. Shop for this amazing self-tanner at Origins located on Level One near Nordstrom.
