Even though there are many sunbed salons dotted about the country, they should be given a very wide berth. They might provide you with a temporary golden glow, but the negatives far outweigh the positives, so when you’re looking to give yourself a bit of colour, it’s much better to hit the bottle.
The popularity of fake tan has meant that formulations have come on leaps and bounds over the years, and there are now many great products out there which- provided you use them as directed- won’t leave you with a really unnatural looking orange hue.
Before applying fake tan, it’s important to do your preparation- which basically means that you need to ensure that skin is in tip top condition.
Rough skin can leave fake tan looking extremely patchy, so you need to gently scrub skin with a good exfoliant such as Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub.
After exfoliation, you then need to arm yourself with a body moisturiser which will leave skin silky smooth without the need for any greasiness- and Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream is just the job.
Prepare your skin properly and take your time with application, and no one will know that you haven’t just spent 2 weeks in the sun.
