Episode #62 - Sunless Tanning

Go get yourself episode 62 of Lip Gloss and Laptops (here's the MP3 file).

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, 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.

I wish I would have listened to this podcast BEFORE buying my gradual self-tanning lotion and starting last week (had to be ready for memorial day!). I put too much on my feet and had this horrific "drippage" line along the side of them! I also didn't scrub my hands enough nor underneath my nails! Live and learn, right? :-)

Great episode. I just discovered your podcast and love it. Keep up the good work!
