Self Tanning 101 in 3 Minutes

I’m not a big sunbather. In fact, I can’t really get a tan even if I wanted one. I go right to lobster red which is not attractive or fun. Occasionally, though, I get curious about what it would be like to have a little glow. The thing is, I’ve always been suspicious of self tanners. I was under the misguided notion that they’d come off on your clothes and or give you that tell-tale burt orange complexion. But self tanners have come a long way. There are so many formulations on the market — from gels to mists to lotions to towelettes —  that one will surely get you what you’re looking for whether it’s a gradual sunless tan that you can customize or an instant bronze that won’t stick to your white dress. In this 3 Minute Makeover episode, I talk you through the array of options from hero brands like St. Tropez, Clarins and Kate Somerville. Plus, I share some important application tips from Sephora pro Julie Tang. Enjoy!
