How You Can Get A Summer Tan In December

Product of the Week: Tan Towel

When was the last time you had golden, glowing skin in the middle of winter? Unless you have a habit of baking in a bed (do I even need to give you a lecture about skin cancer?), it’s likely you’re as pasty as Frosty right about now. Even though this is a good thing (because it means you’re taking care of your skin and health), it doesn’t mean you need to like it. So instead of pouting over your pail complexion, let me introduce you to Tan Towel.

Tan Towel is a handy, thin towelette that can be used on the go or on the run (without a mess or streaks). It was designed to make application easy no matter how busy you are (so no more worrying about applying it just right or taking hours in the bathroom at night). The coolest part of all is that your tan will develop gradually over the next 24 hours, just as it would if you’d been hanging out on the beach earlier. (And don’t forget: if you buy anything in the Makeover Momma shop during the month of December, you get to pick your own Tan Towel product from this Hooray For Holidays list for FREE). So whether you’re trying it for free or trying it to avoid a “pail fail”, you can’t miss this!

    We’ve tried to ask grandparents to give a limited amount, but they don’t listen.

  2. I’m with Laurel! My dad is AWFUL about keeping things “simple” on Christmas. His “we’re cutting back this year” is still way too much! His cutting back is different than mine and as the kids grow… they expect more and more.
