When I was younger (we are talking teens and twenties,) having that sun-kissed glow all summer long was easy. I didn’t even have to think about it and I sure as heck didn’t need to use makeup to get it. Being blonde might have made my skin easier to tan and tan I was! People made comments that I could do a Coppertone commercial! Remember those? The stars would be almost brown, their skin glistening in the sunlight. Talk about your sun-kissed glow! Even my friends whose skin didn’t tan easily could sport that look. Tanning beds were very popular in the eighties and nineties.
Today we do know a little better. Actually, a lot better. Tanning, without using the proper sunscreen, is not something you should practice. Skin cancer is a very real danger if you do. I know several people who have been touched by this and it is not something you want to get. Did I use sunscreen when I was younger? Probably not nearly as often as I should have. Thankfully, the sunscreens we have available to us today make it a lot safer to get your Vitamin D the natural way and there are tons of options for getting that sun-kissed glow we all crave.
Now that I am no longer in my teens or twenties (or thirties, for that matter,) getting a nice glow does not come so easily. So, whether you’re going away somewhere warm or just looking to achieve a natural-looking glow like moi, here are some of my favourite options to help you achieve that freshly smooched by the sun look that just screams summer.
