Long Tanned Limbs

As our summer has been such a wash out there is not an iota of me that has that sun kissed healthy tan look. I don't sunbathe but do try for 20-30 minutes a day to ensure I'm getting my quota of sun to make the vital vitamin D. I don't want rickets at my age.
I usually have a kind of slight brown [freckly] pink colour rather than an all over golden glow. But to have to bare my milk bottle white legs was, I thought, far too embarrassing to contemplate. So I bought one of those moisturisers that give the skin a faintly golden tan. I have very dry skin so need to moisturise daily. Therefore the application would fit conveniently into my almost non-existent beauty regime. I chose the fair to medium colour. I knew I wouldn't fool anyone if I suddenly turned conker brown overnight. I was hoping for a long tanned limb look. What I have ended up with are vertical stripes. I'm hoping the illusion will make my legs look slimmer.
I may try again next week with a different product. as this one sounds fool proof.

I wonder if I spread it all over that it would for me create and illusion of slikness.

I heard of a great product for self tanning but cannot for the life of me remember what it was called.

I;ve just realised you've changed to Lady Thinker - forgive me I'm very slow but BT has allowed me to sneak onto your blog briefly to say hello. Most of my friends are using that botfled stuff - why not? Gives a healthy glow and won't do any harm. Go for it!

You'll have to let us know how the new product works. It does look promising!

Ha! Like the thought of pinstripe legs acting as a fail safe slimming agent!

Mopsa - not quite pin strip more sunshine blind type stripes! Has your bacon come home yet? x

Sorry Flower - just trying to keep eveyone on their toes and awake.

Poetess - If you talking of going nude - sleek or not - then you're a braver woman than I.

Teeni - I'll try and let you know if it's worth the money.
