So Bronze Professional Sunless Tanning

Most people agree that a little color helps a person look healthier, but according to the FDA, the sun damages the skin and tanning beds expose the skin to harmful UV rays. We all know that, right? But did you ever think about what getting a tan means? According to FDA scientist Sharon Miller, "A tan is the skin's reaction to exposure to UV rays."

So what? A lot of people, even after hearing about the dangers of tanning beds, will continue to use them. While tanning beds work faster than lying in the sun, getting a tan the natural way takes time, and most of us don't have time to just lie in the sun. 

But a lot of people I know don't want that leathery look either – or skin cancer.

I don't use tanning beds and you won't find me lying in the sun trying to get a tan – for lots of reasons. First of all, I don't tan well. Secondly, all I get is freckles. Thirdly, I don't want to get wrinkles when I'm 80. Fourth, I've already had breast cancer – I'm not going to risk skin cancer too, especially when skin cancer runs in my family.

Getting a tan artificially appears to be the safest way to tan. If you visit tanning salons, please consider another option. Let me tell you about a fortuitous even that occurred a couple of weekends ago.

My daughter, Brittney, handed me a couple of tubes of So Bronze Professional Sunless Tanning. One was for the face; the other for the body. She gave them to me because she already had a couple of tubes and somebody from her boutique had given them to her with an explanation that the reason she was getting rid of them was because she didn't like the smell. Believe me when I say that not all tanning creams are the same; some create an orange cast, some streak, and some just don't work.

I happen to like the smell of So Bronze Professional Sunless Tanning, and I'm not allergic to it! YAY! But what's more, I love the way So Bronze works. Within a couple of hours after putting it on, I had a tan! I looked healthier than I did before I applied it, and I felt better about the way I looked – WITHOUT having to lie in a tanning bed!

So Bronze Professional Sunless Tanning is expensive, but each application is supposed to last for several days. What's really nice about this tanning cream is that it DOESN'T STREAK. The cream goes on smoothly and is – hands down – the best tanning cream I've ever used.

All I can say is that though So Bronze Professional Sunless Tanning is expensive, I WILL figure out a way to afford it once these tubes run out.
