Did you ever bake?

Were you one of us with the baby oil and the foil sizzling to a dark bronze in the sun?
Back then there seem to be no downside.
Hello midlife, sunspots, wrinkles and all types of sun damage.
I must confess, having a tan feels good to me.........
A bronzey glow looks healthier, eyes and teeth look brighter and
we look as though we just returned from a tropical vacation.
#tan fat looks better!
I'm never happier than splashing around in the pool or at the beach but
my 50 something skin tells tales these days.
There is science behind why the sun makes us feel good.
It's no secret that I adore bronze, golds and shimmer in the summer.
Add in a splash of beachy waves and we've got it made in my book.
On my recent trip to the Dominican Republic I took a couple of old favorites to create
the bronzey look:
Naked 2 from Urban Decay
Nars Duo in Orgasm/Laguna
And my new favorite for creating bronzey, more even skin tone on my body
(hiding a few of those age spot problems) from Stila
The best leg shine from Michael Kors (one of my favorite scents!)
Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Sugar Daddy Mirrored Chrome
Did you bake like me back in the day?
Have you discovered any new summer favorites for skin?
