I think I may have found your safe (and less scary) alternative to getting one of those fake spray tans at the salon. This is basically my attempt at a beauty PSA, to make sure you never go through the spray tan debacle I did and turn into an Oompa Loompa.

If you can no longer bear the look of pale skin, check out this product from model-turned-beauty-biz-owner Josie Maran. She has created a self-tanning body wash. That's right — you can get a glow by using this in the shower.

Here's how the process works:

Put one pump of the body wash on the loofa applicator and apply to your skin (while standing in a dry part of the shower, away from the shower head). Use a circular motion on one body part, such as your arm, and watch the color come to fruition. Repeat this by using one pump for each body part you want to get some color. Rinse skin when you're done. Afterward, pat the skin dry (don't rub!) and apply a rich moisturizer. Your tan will get deeper in color throughout the day.

The Josie Maran Argan Glow Self Tanning Body Wash just went on sale for $34.98 on QVC.com.

Will you give this body wash a shot? Have you been trying to find alternatives to a spray tan?

Definitely, I spend a lot more for a small tube of a name brand product,( which you can only get from department stores), and washes away after a few showers. But it is the only one so far, that actually smells good; and looks natural. I feel so much better when I look tan.; it covers up spider veins and decreases the look of other blemishes and small imperfections. Plus, no permanent skin damage to have removed later in life. At least it will help you look better for your first few trips out to sunbath; if you want to go that route. You won't blind others with those white legs.

It would be nice if they could tell a little more about it - like how long it lasts, do you have to use it daily in order to maintain a tan, what happens when you take a shower and just use regular soap over it?  Sounds like it would make a mess of the shower!

I like being white. I think I'll just stay that way!

I m not understanding why anyone feels that they must have a tan, other than what you get in the course of your day, walking around in the open air.  Get a life and some self-respect, people!
