It’s obviously no secret I love a good tan! Laying out by the pool is probably my favorite pass time. Funny story, I was a camp counselor during the summer I got married and my camp name was “Bridezilla Poolchilla”. We went by our nicknames all summer long and basically, it’s an interview process with the camp counselors and they asked me what my favorite hobby was and at the time it was laying by the pool haha! Ted thought it was embarrassing but it TOTALLY represents who I am. Just chillllll.

Since now I am older, I haven’t been laying out because I am scared of sun damages. For my color, I have been using self-tanner! I get asked a lot about my self-tanner and I am happy to help solve your pasty problems! Personally, I feel my best when I have color on me. I also am half Middle Eastern so I already have an olive skin complexion!

Basically, I either use St. Tropez tanning lotion (must use with a mitt) or I will run to just about any spray tan salon around me for a light spray! I alternate all the time on what I do just depending on my schedule. Be sure to not stop while applying on a certain area. It dries fast so be consistent and rub in well! While I travel, I never leave without my mitt and tanning lotion unless I just got a spray. If I get a spray, I do not sleep in it and lightly rinse about 5 hours after the spray! I get really dark fast! I try to hydrate my skin daily to keep the tans last long. I typically can go like 4ish days without reapplying if I don’t rinse every night!

I really hope this helps with your suntan questions! Let me know if you have any other in the comments 🙂 Oh and I know my comments have been broken for the longest time. I NEED to fix that! I know only a handful can comment on my posts so I plan on looking into that today. If that happens to you, you can email me with any questions: dressupbuttercup@gmail.com! Happy FRIDAY!!

  1. Thank you so much for the self tan post! I have naturally olive skin as well, but I still love the “sun kissed” look! I avoid the real sun because of the cancer risks. Please please share your self tanner application tips! I need details! I would love to know specifically how you do your hands and back so they blend so flawlessly! Thanks!

  2. Have you tried the bronzing mousse? I ordered that accidentally instead of the lotion and wondering if I should exchange it or not? Thanks!!!

  3. Do you have any tips as to how to easily remove a fading self tan? This is where I struggle most with my St Tropez!

  4. Love your blog!! I also have olive skin but I have never used a self tanner (or any sort of tanning that isn’t the sun) could you share how you apply?? Thanks!!

  5. I am goin on vacation and dont want to use a tanning bed so i thot about a lotion or a spray tan until i get to my destination. I want to lay out once there so will i be able to get a tan with these products on my skin already?
