Glowing skin: Spray tan's and at home self tanning has come a long way since the days of the dreaded orange look.

At home- BodyBronze MD Spray and foaming self tanning products. Made for sensitive skin these products are all natural and have a golden glow. You can get the spray to use on your face, neck and chest (what really shows in winter) or the foaming formula that works perfect for the whole body. Starting at $39.99

Spray tan- Not all spray tans are alike. Make sure when you are booking them you look at the reviews and ask if it's a machine or if a technician will be applying it. You see many specials for tan's and in my opinion you get what you pay for! If you are looking at getting an all natural tan make sure you ask when you are booking if the tan is free of chemicals.

For best results make sure you exfoliate your body and add a light layer of lotion if you have any dry patches on your skin.
