I Don’t Have Much Time To Lie In The Sun, Usually Just For

Question

I don’t have much time to lie in the sun, usually just for an hour or 2 on a Sunday so I find I can’t work on my tan very well. I don’t like looking pale when there are masses of tanned people all around me – are there any products that can deepen or prolong one’s tan?

Answer

Thanks so much for this question. I can highly recommend the St Tropez products. We use these in our Skin Renewal Clinics. They have a variety of products that can fill a range of needs you may have when it comes to maintaining, prolonging, preparing for, or even removing your tan. I have tried these and they do not make your skin look yellow or “fake”. I recommend rather using these kinds of products and rather avoid the sun as you put yourself at so much risk for other issues if your risk regular sun exposure. Our very intense sun here in South Africa is not to be meddled with. Your face is especially an area you need to protect and keep out of the sun. PLEASE wear a sunblock every day on your face. I would highly recommend the Heliocare range for this. Should you have any more questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Good Day Dr. I exercise but still have some fat around my waist. I have read about the vella treatments and fat freezing.
