Resolution: This year, I resolve to get over my self-tanning phobia
Resolutions Week Feature Find: Xen-Tan self-tanning products
Why: Iâ€™m the first to admit Iâ€™m pasty, and not just in the winter. This pallor is a year-round feature. Itâ€™s mainly due to the fact that Iâ€™ve got fair Irish skin and burn after five minutes in the sun, but itâ€™s also because Iâ€™m scared to death of turning orange and streaky a la the Hilton siters from misuse of self-tanning products.
Hereâ€™s why I like the sound of Xen-Tan: first of all, it promises an olive undertone (read: not tangerine) and is designed to work on even the fairest skin. Second, it has a lovely cherry-almond scent, so Iâ€™m wonâ€™t feel like Iâ€™m slathering on tons of chemicals (or a piÃ±a colada.) Third, there are three quick-setting formulas â€” lotions, mists, and foams â€” so I can choose one thatâ€™s easy to apply. And fourth: D Magazine in Dallas voted it the number one tan in a bottle. As a former Dallasite, I can tell you: those women know tan.
Price: All-you-need starter sets are $57 to $67 and come with free tan-friendly body scrub.
