Banz is all about protecting kids.  Keeping them safe for sun and more!  In the past I’ve featured Banz sunglasses, Banz Ear Muffs (hearing protection), and more.  I love how this company takes care of me kiddos.  This summer they sent us some UV protection swimwear and it came in such handy.  Sure it’s wonderful for any outdoor setting of water:  pool, lake, slip n slide, etc.  In our case we headed to Lake Powell last month to spend a week on the family’s house boat.  Lots of time in the sun let me tell you!

So…  We went aboard, found a nice beach to play on the entire week, and got into our protective swimwear!  Here’s our little goofball modeling his Banz swimwear:

As soon as people start talking “Back to School”, the summer is basically over.  Instead of long days at the beach, its long days shopping for school supplies, registering for classes, and doing some life re-organizing.  As your summer draws to a close, are you mourning the loss of your beautiful tan?  That is usually one of the sad parts of Fall for me!  Oh how I LOVE a good healthy glow!  That UV always comes at a price, don’t cha know, and I’ve really made a conscious effort to stay sun-exposure-free this summer.  It was hard, but for the best.  So how did I get my fix for glowing skin without the damage?  Sunless tanning lotion from Sun Goddess!
SunGoddess.Com_
You guys, this is highly effective stuff.  If you haven’t tried sunless tanner before, let me convince you how easy it can be to get a ‘fake’ tan that looks legit.  Sun Goddess lotion is a dark liquid in a pump that you rub in like lotion in the places you’d like an insta-tan.

I admit that applying it to look natural did take a little practice for this novice, so I’m glad I first tried it out on a weekend where I wasn’t planning on seeing anyone.  Here were some of my mistakes:
1) I applied the lotion to my peeling knees (which were burned from white-water rafting trip a week previous).  As you can see, with my peeling skin, the result was a very multi-colored spotted leg, but this went away as soon as the burned skin fell off and I tried another lotion application a few days later.  Just make sure you aren’t peeling when you take to the sunless stuff!

2)  Rub it in well!  Or else you’ll end up with streaky, drippy legs like mine!  My first application was very hurried, since I was trying to rush it in order to wash my hands in time before they turned orange.  Problem solved if I had just worn the included gloves in the first place and taken my time to really rub it all in.

Speaking of the gloves, wear them!!  They’re included in the cute little pink bag, and they help to keep your hands color-free.  The substance comes out dark brown/black, and you rub rub rub til it is all absorbed.  I’ve found that circular motions are best to avoid streaky lines.

Once I got the hang of it, (really, it took only one or two attempts to learn where not and how much to apply), I felt like a pro and I LOVE having some healthy color in my skin!  I’m still get comments from family members and even people in the doctor’s office about how nice and tan I look.

When you try this out yourself, just read the directions and you’ll be all set.  It recommends showering a few hours after applying, and if you can’t get a rinse in, just stick to dark clothes until you can.  The only time I noticed the color coming off onto my clothes (before rinsing) is when we went to a splash park and a wet child sat on my lap.  If I hadn’t gotten my lap wet, I’m sure the coloring would never have come off.  Now look at the difference between my arms and my non-tanning lotioned stomach:

Striking, right?  I can attest to this lotion lasting a full 10 days like it claims.  This stuff goes deep!  I’ve sure been loving my tan this summer!  I love looking so healthy and knowing that I didn’t have to spend any unprotected time in the sun to get it.
