Fall is my favorite season. I love the
cool, crisp air, the trendy
sweaters, the seasonal baked
goods, and the anticipation of Halloween
costumes and parties. But as summer comes to a close, many of us lament the shorter days
and the end of beach season. Without the opportunity to lounge lakeside or
poolside, our tans will begin to fade, and paleness will return. With skin as

The only way to maintain that healthy,
warm-weather glow is to hit the tanning salon or invest in expensive, high-end
bronzers, right? Wrong. Just head to the kitchen pantry! Here's a thrifty, cruelty-free beauty recipe that calls for only two ingredients and a container to store it
Mix the ingredients together until
you've reached your desired shade for bronzing. Add more cocoa or cinnamon powder
to darken, or add more sugar or baby powder to lighten. If you're naturally
fair-skinned like me, I suggest adding the cocoa or cinnamon powder sparingly,
a little at a time. I mean, unless you want to achieve this kind of look... Pour the mixture into the sifter jar or compact, apply using a blush brush, and
voilà—you have the look of sun-kissed skin!
Now you can easily maintain your summery, bronzed glow throughout the fall and winter. Bring on sweater weather,
bonfires, and apple cider!
