Tanning beds are home to cancer and they’re notorious for causing the skin to age faster. Roasting your skin in the sun just for the sake of bronzed skin is foolish. Why compromise your health just for the sake of a glow?
What if we tell you that you can get a sun kissed glow without assaulting your skin with chemicals or drying your skin in the sun? Too good to be true? No.
Here’s how you can DIY a gorgeous tan and not feel guilty about it:
- Combine 500ml of water with 1 tbsp. vanilla extract. Place it over heat and bring it to a boil. Layer 8-10 organic black tea bags on a tray and pour the hot liquid over them till they are completely steeped. Leave them steeped for 10 minutes. Exfoliate your skin and then rub the tea bags over your skin. This one works beautifully but the only thing you have to keep in mind is to not expose your skin to water.
- Mix together, 1 tbsp. of cinnamon powder, 1 tsp. of cocoa powder, 1 tsp. of nutmeg powder, 2 tsp. of corn-starch, and 20 drops of rosemary essential oil and Voila! You have your own natural bronzer. Dip a brush, and swipe away.
- Blend together, a quarter cup of pure cocoa powder and a cup of white body lotion. Apply it on your skin. Cocoa acts as a natural colorant and the lotion acts as a carrier. Not only will you look sun kissed, but smell delicious too.
There you go, Use the recipes to reflect a golden glow without worrying, it will damage your skin.
