Self-Tanner Winner!

People who know me, know I have fair skin with freckles, so when I suddenly appear to have a slight tan I get asked what I use. I’d love to say ‘oh, I’ve caught the sun.’ There will be days I actually have, but I burn first anyway if I haven’t got factor 50 on!

I don’t bother using fake tans anymore, as I prefer to look like I’ve got a natural tan on a daily basis and not just make the effort for a special occasion. I opt for a self tanning moisturiser called Dove instead. You’ve got two in one for starters. After trying a few on the market, I find Dove is the best and doesn’t leave any streaks or patches. I apply it every morning (or most mornings if not running late for the school run) after my shower and use a body scrub once a week. It’s a myth when people think that scrubbing your skin takes away the tan. Actually, it enhances it once you apply it again after the scrub. I notice it straight away! There is an obvious glow to my skin. Another tip is if you find you get orange patches on your elbows and knees, just apply Vaseline. That does the trick.

When I worked in beauty salons, I worked with a natural product range called Susan Molyneaux. With that body scrub, you don’t apply any water to your skin at all and just buff it away dry. My skin was noticeably soft afterwards. Since then, I hardly dampen my skin at all. The one I like at the moment, is from Superdrug called Vitamin E skin care, sugar and oil body scrub. It has natural ingredients, which I really like and even heats up on your skin too.
