Thursday, April 08, 2010 | Things We Love
Last week marked the first time this year that the temperature in Atlanta hit the 80 mark for more than two days in a row. To say that the respite from the cold and rain was a welcomed relief would be an understatement. Within the first few sun-soaked hours, downtown streets and parks swelled to capacity, breaking an unseasonably long bout of cabin fever for a Sun Belt city. As I prepared to join my fellow sun chasers, it hit me that I was looking a bit pale. Alright, really pale. Something had to be done.
Skip the Salon
Tanning beds scare me. Between the health warnings, urban legends and fear of Jersey Shore comparisons, I’ve developed a healthy mistrust of tanning salons. Fortunately, with the latest generation of self-tanning lotions, getting that sought-after sun-kissed glow is quick, easy and, best of all, natural looking. The award-winning Get a Little by Pür Minerals imparts a healthy touch of color in just one to three days. Free of chemical dyes and formaldehyde, the rave-reviewed sunless tanner darkens the skin quickly and evenly, and at a fraction of the cost of a salon package or ticket to Aruba.

Everyone expects a bit more color in the spring and summer, but what about the rest of the year? Enter Mineral Glow bronzing powder. Your key to 365 days of summer skin, this pressed mineral powder gives your complexion a healthy-looking hint of color anytime, anywhere. Infused with antioxidants and vitamin E, this golden-toned, lightweight powder nourishes as it illuminates for a pür-ly gorgeous, good-for-your-skin glow.
