Why Is This Self-Tanning Kit So Amazing?

May/27/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

It would be impossible to determine exactly how many self-tanners editors here have tried over the years, but we’d venture a guess of, oh, every single one out there. We refused to stop in our search until we’d found one that is easy to apply, doesn’t streak, doesn’t look orange, dries quickly and smells so good. This Xen-Tan self-tanning kit fits all our requirements.

Stars' Secret Weapon for Bronzed, Flawless Skin

May/13/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

This month, we trade in our jeans for cutoffs, our sweaters for tanks, our lazy-Sunday loungewear for bikinis and (if we’re feeling bold) our full-sized shirts for crop tops. Which is why we’re also stocking up on Prtty Peaushun’s “Skin Tight” body lotion, the smoothing, perfecting, beautifying, glow-inducing product that Selena Gomez, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna rely on when they’re showing a lot of skin.

Hear the interesting story behind Prtty Peaushun, find out why it works so well at covering up cellulite and other imperfections then click the product below the video (or click here) to order. And be sure to enter STYLE15 if you’re a new Joyus customer to receive 15% off your order.

We Tried It: Kardashian Sun Kissed Self Tanner

Apr/18/2013 at 10:30 AM ET

This week, style news editor Alex Apatoff wonders if she could hack it as a Kris Jenner offspring.

There are two things I’ve never really understood: self-tanner and the Kardashians. Admitting to being clueless about both of those things makes me somewhat of an anomaly in our celeb-and-beauty-obsessed office, but despite my best efforts, I just haven’t been able to come around on either concept.

So when a flashy gold bag emblazoned with the word KARDASHIAN arrived at my desk stuffed with the sisters’ latest beauty venture, Kardashian Sun Kissed, I decided it was time to confront my fears in the name of science. And true to the scientific method, I had my hypothesis even before I began: I was going to hate it.

You’d think after Kelly Osbourne’s recent health scare, she would be extra-careful these days. But on Wednesday, the E! Fashion Police co-host, 28, shared a photo of a major health no-no on Twitter: a terrible sunburn. “I’m smart!” she sarcastically Tweeted, along with the pic of her bright red back and intense tan lines.

We feel for her, but as any good PEOPLE StyleWatch reader knows, the first step to having fun in the sun is protecting yourself from it. If you’re already in the summer mindset, it’s time to get prepared now — and these three products have you covered.

For Face: Besides protecting your mug with a cute summer hat, try Clarins SPF 30 Face Sun Screen. It’s not greasy and smells delicious. The brand also makes a special lotion for your eyes, which combats wrinkles and won’t cause irritation.

For Body: Toss this cute Yes to Cucumbers SPF stick in your everyday bag — it won’t take up much real estate and has the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of approval.

For your bigger vacation bag, Neutrogena’s new beach defense line is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and comes in an SPF 85. It’s got your back (but get a cute guy to get your back too — just for fun).

For Overexposure: And if you find yourself in the same painful boat as Kelly (tsk!), natural remedies work best. We swear by aloe vera, shaving cream (cools the skin for immediate relief) and Vitamin E as a triple threat that takes the sting out fast.

Tell us: What’s your favorite safe sun product?

Jennifer Garner: 'My Friends Used to Call Me Casper!'

When it comes to skincare, who better to trust than Jennifer Garner? At 40, she’s a safe sun fanatic, and it shows: her skin is amazing.

“The more that I’ve worked with Neutrogena, the more I’ve learned about skin cancer,” the brand’s ambassador told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s Neutrogena Sun Summit. “It’s our most common… and most preventable form of cancer.”

Garner admits that in the past, she wasn’t as cautious about it. “When I was really young, no one thought of the sun as being a problem,” Garner says. “We would put on baby oil and lay in the sun to try to get brown.”

As it turns out, however, being a theater kid “saved” her complexion. While her friends spent afternoons tanning, “I was inside in the theater geeking out. My friends called me Casper!”

These days, Garner’s daily makeup routine isn’t complete without SPF. “Right after brushing my teeth and washing my face, I put on sunscreen immediately,” she says. “It has to be in my moisturizer, in my makeup.”
