Calypso Carrot Oil

I used this on my weekend sun break in Ibiza. I was determined to get a lasting tan for a sista. It truly worked. I still get people commenting on how dark I have gone or simply say that I am glowing. Some of the ladies in the group tried it out and they loved it too until they started burning. They were fairer (European) complexion and literally bathed in the sun. I used a bit of shade and bit of direct sun.

Trust me, do not for one minute think because you are Black you cannot tan. You can just get the right product and still use some SPF. My knees and elbows suffer from hyper –pigmentation. For those spots I used SPF 15 and 30 but was a but late. If you have any tips on reducing dark knees please let me know. I just want them to be the same complexion and not 10 shades darker.

    You could try rubbing lemon on your elbows and knees. That should work
