I’m hardly “tanorexic” by any means, but I have to admit – I’ve recently developed an obsession with self-tanner. I just look and feel better when I’m tan – slightly slimmer, healthier, and like I’ve actually gotten some rest on a much-needed vacation (sooo not the case) – plus, it totally puts me in a better mood while I (impatiently) look ahead to summer. But self-tanning doesn’t come easy. You have to pick the perfect product that won’t make you look orange or streaky, then you actually have to perfect the application itself – showering and exfoliating and distributing evenly, then allowing time to dry before you “self-tan” everything you touch. Now, thanks to Josie Maran, could self-tanning really be as easy as taking a shower? The supermodel-turned-beauty-guru has teamed up with QVC to launch her brand-new Argan Glow Self Tanning Body Wash. Simply massage into skin in the shower, wait 30 seconds, and rinse, and color will develop throughout the day. No more standing around in the nude waiting for your color to dry, and no more cheeto-orange hands! It’s brand new, so I haven’t had the chance to test it out myself… but if you end up giving it a whirl, let me know how you like it!
