Most everyone will agree that a deep tan looks beautiful. Most of us do not feel comfortable showing our un-tanned legs come spring, or really any time of the year for that matter. Living in Florida, we always want our skin to look its best since most of our wardrobe exposes our skin. So, how can we look beautifully bronzed without harming our health? After years of research and numerous trials and error, I have found that St. Tropez self-tanning products are the only way to look believably tan while nourishing my skin. As many of us know, Ultra Violet light is our skins’ worst enemy. Whether you are often exposed to natural sunlight or artificial UV rays, they are both incredibly damaging to the cellular health of our skin. Statistics now tell us that 1 in 5 people will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. This number is on the rise and will continue to grow unless we become more conscientious. With daily application of broad-spectrum sunscreen and limiting our exposure, we can help prevent becoming a statistic. St. Tropez is an exclusive, professional self-tan product that premiered in Europe. It is truly a revolutionary product in that it produces the most natural and sun-kissed bronze look available on the market. It contains high levels of antioxidants, which protect skin from free-radical damage, and hydrating ingredients to nourish your skin. St. Tropez self-tanner is easy to apply and results in a streak-free, immediate tint. These tanners do not contain SPF, so applying a sunscreen first if self-tanning during daytime hours is imperative. It is now available at PVPS in a hydrating lotion, a light mousse, and a smooth gel formulation. All of these formulations are equally effective, allowing you to choose the product that works best for you and is specific to your preferences. Any of our aestheticians or front desk staff will happily assist you in trying St. Tropez for yourself. We have testers of all the formulations and disposable gloves are provided. The coveted bronze look you want can be yours with the only true “safe tan”. Written by Andrea Bailey, PVPS Aesthetician.
