Zen Tan

As the summer days become longer and the evening drinks become colder, you may be wondering how to get that bronze glow before you (literally) shed your clothes for the sunshine season.

Every year, more and more sunless tanning products are making their way into the beauty market, providing customers with an affordable and safe alternative to traditional sun tanning. And of course, here at InWithSkin, skincare safety is essential.

Xen-Tan has a fantastic line of self-tanning products and has been featured in the beauty sections of publications such as Cosmopolitan, InStyle and People.

Specifically, the Xen-Tan Dark Lotion has been praised for its compliance with almost all skin tones from fair to deep.

For those who are deterred by the orange-y afterglow of self-tanners (think Lindsay Lohan circa 2008), fear not: a distinctive feature of Xen-Tan Dark Lotion is the olive undertones that mimic a natural tan. The golden hue of most sunless tanning products causes your color to develop an orange tint, but Xen-Tan uses an olive base color that settles into a realistic-looking tan.

When applied to skin, Xen-Tan Dark Lotion produces instant color and develops a tan while on after a few hours. To keep the color all season, you can reapply once a week or every few days.

The streak-free color goes on evenly and gradually diminishes over several days, rather than flaking off in noticeable flecks.

An added bonus: Xen-Tan doesn’t have the typical chemical self-tanner scent! Instead, the product has a sweet vanilla-banana fragrance, allowing it to fit right into your summer sun collection.

For around $30, you can pick up Xen-Tan Dark Lotion at most beauty and cosmetic chains.
