As a member of the "fairest of fair skin" club, and now that I am dealing with this disease and cant get in the sun without risking a bad flare, I have to say I have embraced the self tanners. After trial and error, and quite a few dollars, I found that the Aveeno Moisturizing Self tanner (for light skin) was the most natural looking. I tried the Jergens, Loreal, and Dove, but they all gave that orange tint that screams self tanner. And on the days that I just dont feel like struggling to slather that stuff all over without feeling like I have just been bent like a pretzel, I just slip on the sandals and go anyway. If they dont want to be blinded they can put on their shades!
Thank you, Butterflake, for the article!!!!
