To all the spring breakers who are getting ready to go somewhere sunny and beautiful and leave us here in rainy Seattle...
First of all "Wear sunscreen!" that is a given. To abolish a myth that is out there about tanning to get a base before going on vacation. Beware! A "base" tan from the tanning beds only gives you the equivalent protection of a SPF 4. That means you are wasting time, money, and most important your healthy skin cells for only a SPF 4 level of protection.
Instead, I recommend...
1.) Professional exfoliation or a fabulous sugar scrub a couple days before you leave
2.) Airbrush tan the day before you leave
3.) Aveeno SPF 30 in the aerosol spray can for easy and even application
4.) Glow on the Go sunless tanning extender to apply each night to help your sunless tan last through your entire vacation
5.) A yummy tropical smelling body butter to put on in the morning to keep your skin hydrated and glowing all day
Be safe and look fantastic this spring break.
