This week it's all about getting your faux glow on, sensibly (meaning we don't want you to look orange, or tanorexic).
A great online source for all things fake tan is Sunless.com, a site that has information on everything from proper exfoliation and application, to product reviews and message boards.
If you are planning on getting a fake tan for an event, make sure you give yourself enough time to avoid any disasters. Many a woman has fallen victim to the pitfalls of the fake-bake including streaking, undesirable skin colour, uneven application, or the dreaded orange palm/knee/ankle/elbow syndrome.
Also, the products often stink and stain clothing. Your best bet is to apply before bedtime, and after you have thoroughly exfoliated the areas on which you plan to apply product. Your partner may refuse to sleep with you due to the self-tanner odor, but hey, better you subject him (or her) to it rather than being the office pariah!
If you have an important event that you want to look extra swanky for, go spend the money and get yourself a Mystic Tan, or a Fantasy Tan. Honestly, the even colour is worth the extra cash you spend. Airdrie and Kerry Anne both heartily endorse Mystic tanning.
Airdrie talks about a few of the products she likes to use at home -- watch for updates to this blog post as she adds them.
