A Find: Gradual Tan Tabs from EluSun
July 26, 2007
Why: OK, before you dismiss this post because it has to do with supplements, hear me out. I was skeptical, too, as was my mother who warned me that I would wind up looking like a carrot.
In fact, I’ve been using these all-natural nutritional supplements for several weeks and don’t look orange at all. Rather, me, the pasty Irish girl who doesn’t tan, but burns, is getting a very little touch of sun without the use of sprays, gels or any other turn-your-hands orange sunless tanner. Plus, despite my rotten eating habits, my skin, hair and nails all seem to be looking better these days.
Take two tabs with water twice a day during pre-tan season to help develop a healthy base and then taper off once you’re hitting the sun on a daily basis. The recommended period for starting off full throttle is six weeks, but it’s never too late to start. Throughout the months when the sun doesn’t shine (which is practically always if you live in New England), EluSun can help maintain your glow naturally and safely. I figure it’s a win-win situation: healthy looking skin and more vitamins and minerals for my body.
What more can you ask for? No fuss, no muss, no smelly tanner smell — just a healthy looking glow that comes from within.
