Sunless Tanning Products

With the summer sunshine in full effect comes the warning of skin cancer. Everybody knows it's super unhealthy to bake in the sun but it's still fun to have that nice, tanned look. Here are a couple of beauty tricks and tips to get that nice brown glow without doing some major damage to your skin.

Bronzing Powders

Add a bronzing powder to your morning make-up routine. Bronzing powders come in various shades (for different tanning effects) and can be loose powder, pressed powder or even beads. Use a big bushy brush to apply the powder to your forehead, down the top of your nose, your cheekbones and your chin. Kidzworld recommends Brush-on Bronze from the Body Shop. It comes in gold, copper and bronze powdered beads that last forever... well, not really, but it lasts a long time. Check out www.bodyshop.com to buy it online or check out your local Body Shop.

Start Glowing

Ok, so now you've got a nice sun-kissed glow on your face, what about the snow white skin on the rest of your body. Try a self-tanner. A self-tanner is a cream or foam that gives your skin a brown tint without the harmful rays of the sun. Not all self-tanning creams are good though. Depending on your skin coloring and the quality of the product, you may end up looking more like a carrot than a beach bunny. Ask someone working in cosmetics or someone you know if the product made their skin orangy or streaky. If the product is really cheap, leave it on the shelf unless you like the orange look. A good one to try is Neutrogena's Sunless Tanner which comes in a foam. Neutrogena even has a video on their Web site that tells you how to apply it properly and avoid getting lines on your skin. Watch the video at www.neutrogena.com

So next time you're thinking about baking your skin in the sun, why not get your sun from a powder or a bottle? if you've ever used a self-tanner or bronzing powder and how it worked for ya.

Well, 3 days ago we went to a lake to swim at and I saw my "friend" there. I felt very embarrassed. My mom told me to go play with her, and I asked her if she was still my friend. All she said was "meh". Her family was friendly, they kept on saying hi to me. But I can't afford to loose my relationship with her; if i did, I would start 5th grade with no friends. The only real school friend that I have is my friend from my old school that's visiting the philippines. All of the other friends that I have are people who are related to me by blood.  I just don't want 5th grade to be a bad school year.
