Be a bronze goddess
There's no denying that a bronze beach body is a beautiful beach body. There's also no denying that the bronze we get from the sun's rays is dangerous, even deadly. Fortunately, we have loads of options for getting that golden coast glow without damaging our precious skin. Choose a salon spray tan or opt for an easy self tanner from your local drugstore.
