Man Tan.
It’s no secret…we use (and really like using) a self tanner.  Winter is perfect time to get your skin out of sick/green zone and into ‘were you just away on vacation?’ zone.

FakeBake ‘The Face’ $25.95: 
This stuff is magic. We’re not quite sure what the hell is in it, but all we know is that every time we apply it, we are transported back to our 20’s (on a trip to Miami Beach).
