We all have that moment when our cravings take over and we want to eat everything in sight. Some of us have multiple moments when it’s that time of the month. Fortunately there is an easy way to satisfy your cravings without packing on the pounds. Let’s call it ” a little taste.”
When you have the urge to eat something that you normally wouldn’t/shouldn’t have a little taste and then stop. If it’s a candy bar, have a square. Chips – have a few. Ice cream – have two spoonfuls.
Studies show that when two people are craving something and one eats a whole serving, while another eats a few bites, they are both equally satisfied even though the first group ate 77% more calories*.
So yes you can have your cake and eat it too, just have a few bites!
Summer is coming and if you’re looking for a great guide to self-tanning, we’ve got you covered! Here are 8 tips for the perfect self-tan.
1. Plan your tan.
You should apply your self-tanner at least 2 days before going to the beach.
2. Make sure you exfoliate!
The self-tanner is applied to the topmost layer of your skin. This layer is made up of dead skin cells than only last about a week before they shed. If you don’t exfoliate, some of these cells will shed before others and you’ll be left with spots. I’m pretty sure the look you were going for was goddess and not leopard! Aim for an oil-free exfoliator and you’ll be all set.
If an area of your skin is dry, more product will be absorbed there and you’ll end up with orange knuckles, elbows, knees and ankles. Make sure to use an oil-free moisturizers so the tanner will go on evenly.
4. Save your tips.
Make sure to apply Vaseline to your cuticles and nails to keep them from staining once you start. To remove self-tanner from your palms when you’re done, rub your hands on a washcloth. Don’t forget to get in between your fingers as well.

1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am from Lindenhurst, New York. My favorite hobbies include working out, dancing, shoe shopping and going to the beach! I am an instructor, trainer, Zumba instructor and dance teacher! I have been a dancer my whole life and it is a strong part of who I am.
2. How did you end up working at Lucille Roberts?
I ended up working at Lucille Roberts because I was a member there starting when I was in high school. When I started college going to the gym became less frequent. I gained some weight when I was dating someone who was a bad influence on my food choices & sleeping habits. I also didn’t dance as much as I had in high school and the freshman fifteen came to life!
