Fake It, Real Good

Fake It Real Good #LeCityKitty

So you’ve got a tan, huh? You sat out under the blazing sun, and actually got a tan. This comes as a surprise to you because, 1. You can’t stand the heat (so, typically you get the hell out of the kitchen), and 2. You adore the youthfulness of your skin and would never want to taint that with nature’s harmful rays. I am with you on 1 and 2, because as much as we love Magda, we have zero interest in stealing her look, no matter how Kool her cigarettes are. Am I right? 😳

Fake It Real Good #LeCityKitty

I, myself, am sporting a gorgeous bronze glow à la my trip to Miami. Between shooting with THE STAYCATIONERS I sat poolside and baked. It wasn’t the brightest option, bright being the operative word. Because, in the long run, “baking” in the sun will surely ruin my skin’s luster and in turn dull my complexion. The resolution? Fake it, real good! Why waste time damaging your lovely epidermis when you can baste yourself into golden goddess heaven?

As of now, my tan is fading and making me sad. But with so much on the market, from self-tanning mouse and moisturizers to liquid gold tanning oil, there are many ways to achieve a natural-looking tan. I’ve already done the leg work, along with asking my close friends for their favorites, to provide you with 15 of the best at-home self-tanners.
