I'm not ashamed to admit it: I love self-tanner
. I work all summer to get the perfect glow, then fall comes around and my bronze tan suddenly makes me feel like George Hamilton. Unfortunately, you can't just snap your fingers and go back to the Snow White winter look when fall still calls for a little bare skin in skirts, short sleeves and, well, your face. Quit cold turkey and bad things happen. Skin starts to flake, color fades unevenly, and you're left with patchy spots that make you look like you have a skin disease. I had a feeling there had to be some sort of protocol for transitioning from a summer tan back to my natural color. To find out the process for weaning myself off of self-tanner, I spoke with Sophie Evans, a skin-finishing expert for St. Tropez.
