There’s nothing quite like a bronze glow, especially during the summer. But whether you work during the day, don’t have time to tan or don’t want to damage your skin, there are plenty of reasons to opt for self-tanning as opposed to sun tanning. If you’re a frequent self-tanning queen, however, you know the struggle of having yellowy stains all over sheets and white clothes. Yikes!
