My sister-in-law lives in Boston and this year they are certainly are in need of some self-tanner. With the record amount of snow, they have barely seen the light of day. They have for certain not seen any sun in weeks.
She asked if I knew a recipe for self-tanner and after some quick research, I found one that I liked for the ingredients. I sent it to her, but I was curious how it turned out. I popped into my kitchen and very quickly I was looking bronze. Here it is:
– 4 black tea bags
– 3/4 cup water for steeping your tea
– 1/2 cup coconut oil
– 1/2 cup cocoa butter
– 1/3 cup raw cocoa powder
I got the recipe from http://thebeautybean.com/skin-2/diy-faux-glow-3-steps-to-streak-free-all-natural-self-tanner where they give further details, but in essence, you steep your tea and then combine all the ingredients in a blender.
I’ve been wearing it for the past few days and I really like it. It’s nourishing and hydrating for my skin and gives it a nice warm glow. I used fractionated coconut oil as I always do in these recipes and it works out great. My only piece of advice is that the recipe creates a lot. I have enough now for my sister-in-law and I both for two winters!
