BEAUTY: MY FAKE TANNING ROUTINE


Back in the day, we're talking sometime circa 2010 when this very blog found its own space on the internet, I was a fake tan-aholic. I was seriously orange or a strange shade of khaki green pretty much all the time. It drove my Dad insane as he regularly bleached the white bathroom tiles which had been stained a horrible shade of terracotta. Even a doctor who was looking at my wrist for possible carpel tunnel syndrome asked me if I had some kind of skin complaint as she carried out a nerve conduction test. 

Back then, it was all about being an orange as possible and since then my dabblings with fake tan have levelled considerably. I am now a take it or leave it kind of gal but recently as parddy season has begun I have found myself reaching for the bottle more and more.

Every three days or so I will apply the Dove 'Summer Revived' gradual tanning moisturiser an old favourite for sure, that has been repackaged (and possibly re formulated) whereby you actually get less product for a more expensive price tag! Anyway, grievances aside it's pretty darn good for giving you a glow without the fuss of rinsing off tan. The biscuity aroma is still lurking as the formula develops but you are good to go if you want to, straight after a applying the formula. 

When I want a deeper tan I will use the iconic St Moriz 'Instant Self Tanning Lotion' which I apply using an expert bronzing mitten from 'Bronzie' - not only does this help me to achieve an even, all over tan but it also makes tanning my back super easy.

When I want a deeper tan for an occasion or if i'm feeling thoroughly down with my appearance I will exfoliate my skin using a salt scrub from The Sanctuary SPA at Boots before using the iconic St Moriz 'Instant Self Tanning Lotion' which I apply using an expert bronzing mitten from 'Bronzie' - not only does this help me to achieve an even, all over tan but it also makes tanning my back super easy...Perfect for when you don't have somebody else to give you a hand.

What are your favourite fake tanning products?
