Last week I woke up once again to a dreary cold day in Chicago wishing I could escape to the beach or at least see some sunshine.  In the mist of my thoughts the phone rang. I was pleasantly surprised when the voice on the other end hired me for a week long job in Naples, Florida.  I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get a break from the never-ending winter and I was right. As soon as I arrived in Florida the sun was shining and there was not a cloud in the sky.  I headed for the beach with the realization that I had not given much thought to my pasty white complexion.  Not to mention my bikini bod was not quite ready for my usual strut along the beach. Trust me, I realize that the paparazzi is not hiding in the bushes waiting to take candid shots – No  “Tracy Pics” will be gracing the pages of US weekly!  Even so we all still want to look good – right?  The look I am aiming to achieve is “Sun kissed.”  I have a specific regime including a list of my favorite products that I thought I would share with you. Hopefully a few might come in handy the next time you find yourself on a sunny beach.

Day One Is Crucial – the first day should be all about relaxation and introducing your body to the sun. A couple of hours are all you need here – you do not want to end up burned, peeling and/or in pain. This will cause you discomfort in the spa, bedroom and outdoors. Even some of those chairs might hurt to sit on – YIKES.
