Now is the time when it's ok to fake it.....and we're talking tanning of course!
As we should all know by now, those gorgeous sun rays are responsible for 90% of ageing...it so is NOT worth the risk, and why bother when you can fake it so beautifully with just a little effort and then remain youthful and cool beneath your fabulous sun hat.
Step 1. as the old Clinique mantra used to go "exfoliate, exfoliate" use a body scrub, or olive oil and sugar and a more gentle scrub or light peel for your face...be thorough..knees, elbows, heels....neglect these bits and its a giveaway.
Step 2. PUT THE GLOVES ON!....brown palms are not a good look.
Step 3. Apply your chosen tanning lotion...personally I don't think that St Tropez can be beaten...in upward sweeping strokes to avoid patches.
Step 4. Allow to dry thoroughly while sipping herbal tea to combat the cellulite you may have noticed on your thighs!!
Step 5. Now your good to go except....remember to apply SPF......enjoy the sunshine.
