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.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

CoolerThanMyself
I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
