It’s no secret that Fall is upon us. No more hanging at the poolside soaking up all that vitamin D! But don’t worry, you don’t have to take a vacation to Hawaii to get your tan back.
I was lucky enough to get to talk to Sinead Norenius, author of Self Tanning Queen blog, who created Antidote Skin Care’s line of self tanning products based on feedback she received on her blog. Readers shared with her what was lacking from tanning products on the market today and Sinead decided to make her own sunless tanner!
After finding the perfect tan shade, Sinead eliminated all the commonly used ingredients like parabens, propylene glycol, sodium laureth (and that bad stuff) and added in anti-aging ingredients like DHA, MOC, and MelanoBronze, a compound comprised of Monk’s Pepper Extract and Acetyl Tyrosine. And on top of that, Antidote’s products are cruelty-free so you can feel good about using them too!
Sinead was nice enough to send me the Summer Glow System which contains Summer Glow, a self-tanning lotion that is packed with powerful antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients and Go Slough Yourself, a fabulous pre-tanning exfoliant.
You can find a series of videos on the website, for tips and tricks on how to apply the sunless tanners so you can achieve the perfect tan every single time you use the products.
These fabulous tanning systems retail for $46.99. You can purchase the products individually, purchase the kits, or enroll in the auto shipment program so you can have the perfect tan year round! Everything is up to the customer with Antidote.
