Q: Will using self-tanner give me enough of a base tan color that I won’t have to worry as much about getting sunburned?

A: Definitely not. A self-tanner adds color to your skin, but doesn’t provide any protection from UV rays. In fact, the idea of a “base tan” is misleading; although it might seem like you get less sunburned when your skin already has a bit of tan, you are absorbing the same amount of UV rays.

Q: I’d like to use a self-tanner, but they don’t seem to last very long! Is there anything I can do to keep the color from fading?

A: Keeping your skin hydrated is the best way to ensure your tan lasts. Use a moisturizing body wash in the shower and follow with an all-over body lotion. You can also try a treatment like Yonka Tan Prolonger, which helps results last even longer.

Q: What’s a good spring look for the nails?

A: To match the light, barely-there look of your makeup, go with a sheer pink or peach polish, such as SpaRitual Nail Lacquer - Whirlwind Romance, an iridescent shimmering pink, or SpaRitual Nail Lacquer - It's A Breeze, a sheer buff.

Q: I have extremely dry skin and am looking for an affordable daily moisturizer – ideally one that also works as a self-tanner. Any recommendations?

A: St. Tropaz Everyday Face Daily Moisturizer/Tanner is an ideal formula for daily winter moisture. You can build a gradual, tailored tan that fits your skin tone, without spending an arm and a leg. For less than $25, infuse your skin with aloe vera, vitamin E and other all-natural ingredients to build an attractive color that’s perfect for any season.
