Things We Love: Brazilian True Tan by Brazilian Peel

Let’s face it… it’s fun to be tan!  But the consequences of sitting in the sun and letting your skin fry comes at a high health cost.  We all know that sun tanning leads to deep lines, brown spots, and an increased risk of melanoma. BUT, luckily you can get a sun-kissed glow in a tube without the hours of sun damage!


The SkinOwl recommends Brazilian True Tan by Brazilian Peel.   This amazing product exfoliates and conditions skin to ensure an even, natural-looking tan. PLUS, there are NO Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalates!  So go ahead and let yourself glow this summer while keeping your skin healthy and undamaged!


P.S We won’t tell anyone you didn’t come off a private jet from Bali :)
