Ahhh...winter. Nothing we love more than the shroud of darkness falling before Jeopardy airs and being so pale we could glow in the dark. Throw in dry skin and it's a damn party.
In as much as I would love to trot over to the local Electric Maldives (tanning salon) for a little color, I would prefer to not look like the alligator bag I am desperate for by the ripe old age of 35.
The alternatives, by and large, leave you orange-y and oompa loompa looking. Unless you are working in a magical chocolate factory - or are the corporate face for said magical chocolate factory, orange-y skin - not so much.
Imagine my joy when after courting many a bronzer (Guerlain, Trish McEvoy, Benefit, Aveda...you get the picture) I found one that is ...gasp...natural looking.
Because I am kind and generous - or at least today - I'll share my weapon of choice to banish winter pastiness:
Word to the wise...it can be a little sparkly. Which for a girl with gypsy blood - like yours truly - is a plus. It also means the other member of the News Readin' household, who is equally concerned with pastiness, is less likely to swipe it while I'm not looking for a "Special Assignment."
From the bronzed trenches,
Mrs. News Readin'
