As the weather in most parts of the UK now appears to have taken a turn for the worse, if you haven’t managed to jet away on a hot summer holiday this year, you may be feeling a little pale and pasty- especially when standing next to your beautifully bronzed friends.
You don’t need to have spent hours bronzing yourself on a tropical beach to achieve a gorgeous glow though, as there are lots of fab fake tan products on the market nowadays which can do a very convincing job- and minus the skin damage.
The days where applying fake tan meant that there was a high probability that you would resemble an Oompa Loompa rather than a beach babe are long gone, as there are some great products about which can give you a really natural glow.
However, achieving a natural looking tan does involve some skin preparation- otherwise you could find that you end up with a very streaky and uneven look.
Exfoliating and moisturising prior to your fake tan application is vital, and when you’re looking for products which can perfectly prep your skin, look no further than Dermalogica.
Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub is amazing at getting rid of rough, dry skin and can be used in the bath or shower. Following up with a super-rich moisturiser such as Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream will help your tan to glide on much more smoothly, and your skin will be left feeling silky soft in the process.
Who needs an expensive foreign holiday when you can achieve just as bronzed a look in the comfort of your own home?!
