Indoor Tanning Tax Charges An Extra 10% For Skin Cancer & Wrinkles

Sorry, Snooki, the rumors are true. It now costs an extra 10% to soak up UV rays indoors. The ‘Tanning Tax’ is intended to prevent fake-and-bakers from getting skin cancer and help pay off the health care reform. Since faux tanning is horrible for you anyways, and spray-tans can cost a small fortune, tan yourself at home with some of our favorite self-tanners and body bronzers. Your future self (and wrinkle-free skin) will thank you.

Lather on Origins The Great Pretender Self-Tanner ($18.50) for an instant shimmery bronze without ever looking orange.

For a more gradual glow, Neutrogena’s Build-A-Tan ($9.99) streak-free formula is perfect, especially for self tanning beginners.

Apply the Michael Kors Leg Shine ($32) for a quick fix to pale legs. It’s the perfect size for your purse, in case you need to touch up during the day.

Maximize your summer glow with our guides to the best self-tanners, the best hair removal products, and the best sweat fighters. Subscribe to our newsletter for more fashion updates.
