So, funny story… I was at the gym one day last week, and after my workout, I needed to take a quick shower. Luckily, my gym has a towel service, so I made my way to the locker room, grabbed a standard white towel, and took a shower.
Imagine my shock when, after my shower, I look down at my towel and realized it is covered in brown stains. I was mortified. OMG. Did I just dry off with a dirty towel? How could that be? Seriously? Grr. And yes, I sometimes growl in my head. Then, imagine how much my embarrassment increased as I realized I heard girls chatting in the locker room. Do I really have to walk out there in a dirty towel? Can I hide? Or at least hide the towel? Can I run and bury my face in the locker?
I survived. In case you were wondering. But later, I realized exactly what was on that white towel.
Yep. Lesson learned.
You see, I’ve been prepping my skin for warmer weather, using a self-tanning lotion on my legs so that I can rid myself of tights as soon as the weather permits. I realized after the fact, that said tanning lotion is actually what turned my towel brown. It wasn’t a dirty towel after all, so thank goodness I didn’t complain to the staff!
Anyway, my recent experience, awkward as it was, reminded me that you might use self-tanners too. And if you do, you might just be interested in what I use. You know, so we can compare
I’ve been using Jergens natural glow foaming moisturizer, and I feel like it actually works. (Bonus when you pay for something, and it actually works, right?!) I am fair skinned but tan naturally in the summer, although to see me in the winter, you probably wouldn’t guess it!
I use this self-tanner in the early spring to prep my skin, especially my legs.
Plus, my legs feel moisturized, not just tanned.
So, if you’re looking for a self-tanner, I guess I’d recommend this one. I’d just also recommend avoiding white towels for awhile. 🙂
Do you use self-tanner? What products work for you?
