I was super self-conscious about how white my legs were. I can get tan…. but only after one or two terrible sunburns followed by months and months of gradually building up some color.
Coxing in Florida allowed me to get tan over a long period of time, but it just doesn’t happen here in DC. I was worried about wearing shorts and having pasty legs. So, I took some advice from Sporty Sister.
(I’d just like to point out that it is completely unfair it is that she was somehow blessed with gorgeous olive skin, and I am whiter than a sheet of paper…….. #whatever)
Sporty Sister is obsessed with Jergens (casually referred to as “jergs” in the College Prepster household) and she uses it in between tanning sessions at the beach or on the boat.
If it worked for her, it must work for me.
It’s totally not orangey and builds up. I’m by no means “tan,” but I’m certainly not white anymore.
It says it gets to full color over 3 days, but after day 3 I was looking a little “fake.” I would do two days on, one day off, two days on, one day off…. etc.
I’ve also only used it on my legs, but I think it should work well elsewhere!
STILL USE SUNSCREEN!!!!!
Has anyone else tried it? Results? Like/Dislike?
PS Proof that I can (under certain circumstances) be tan…..
And no…. I’m not wearing a sock.
