DIY self-tanning.

Spring's temperatures are warming up and that urge to tan is beginning right about now. Play it safe and get your golden glow from 'a bottle'. Here's a look at brand new additions and all time favorite self-tanners that will give you that summer glow or St.Tropez bronze.

Before beginning...
Ann Marie Cilmi, Director of Education and Development for Bliss shares these 'self-tanning' tips:
image-Always exfoliate before you begin, even start a few days earlier to get skin in good condition. (A good one to try is Bliss Lemon+Sage Body Scrub is her favorite.)
-To correct "too much color" in one spot, Ann recommends generously exfoliating the area immediately after to help lessen the appearance of discoloration.
-Here's a trick to avoid 'orange hands and nails'. Apply a thick layer of lotion to fingers, palms, cuticles, and nails before application. Immediately after, wash and scrub hands and use a nail brush to get around the nail bed.
