Day 6 – Fake Tan

Pale skin isn’t the sexiest sight, regardless of whether it’s winter or summer. But you can fake it till you make it!

Applying a self tanning mousse or cream and developing it over a week will give you a natural bronzed look. It’s more gradual than a tanning bed – which is also a big UV no no. Plus, you’ve already exfoliated so your skin’s ready and the shade will be even. Try Caribbean Tan Tanning Mousse, R84.95.

    A gradual tan moisturizer like Palmers Natural Bronze is a really easy and mistake-free way of getting a light, natural tan without the effort of applying self tan correctly

    I am a fan of fake tanning, I used to be in the sun often but because it is so harmful I am into the fake tan instead
