Instant Tan Surprise

What is your definition of instant? Fast, easy, ready in a few minutes, a few hours, a few days?!

In a few minutes...
The only way that you can get a tan in a few minutes is by using a bronzer, you'll tint the skin as you apply, it's make up basically. You can also instantly wash it off. It's temporary and most product rubs off on your clothes.

In a few hours...
Sunless tanners, tannings beds and sun tanning can give you the tan you desire. But remember that tanning beds and the sun emits harmful UV rays that can cause skin cancer, premature skin aging and wrinkles, elk! So I would always say fake tan gives you the best tan.

Now here's an instant tan funny story. A noob in the world of sunless tanning, my sweet pretty girlfriend grab an sunless tanner off the shelves of her favorite beauty bar. This product came with a guide bronzer to ensure even application. She applied it all over her body, carefull following the instruction on how to avoid streaks and patches. After applying the product she waited and hour and hit the shower. Of course the guide bronzer washed off. She then noticed that her tan was gone, she thought to herself, maybe she wasn't marinated enough. So she did the whole process again, this time she didn't shower and went straight to the mall to meet her friends, not minding the awfull fake tanner's scent.

At the mall a few hours later the DHA from the sunless tanners started to tint her skin. It's a bit darker than she had in mind. So when she chance a mirror she was shocked at the sight of her dark tan. Well it's not so bad that she did not wish to hide under a rock until her tan wears off but it was an experience that made her ran away from sunless tanners and preffered tanning beds.

One of these days I'll be able to convert her.
