How To Get That Perfect Faux Glow

Many a times we’ve seen orange patches and streaks that would be described as anything but artistic. Albeit it being a ‘fake’ tan, you most definitely want to avoid the tragic mishap of being a walking fluorescent light. Make sure your body hair is removed at least 24 hours prior to tanning. Nair Sensitive Shower Cream, $22.90, works while you shower to get your groundwork done and dusted in under 10 minutes.

Try Essano’s new Coconut Oil Invigorating Body Scrub, $14.99, which utilizes the coconut shell as the exfoliant. For a stronger option, turn to a premium salt scrub with coarse crystals such as The Body Shop Spa Of The World Mediterranean Sea Salt Scrub, $62. A true hit amongst beauty fiends is New Zealand self tan brand Little Honey. Zero fuss, streak-free, transfer-resistant and dry-to-touch in 10 seconds, their Flawless Bronzing Kit, $55, is a no-brainer.

If you’re keen on the high-shine trend, St. Tropez’s latest and most exciting release – Instant Tan Finishing Gloss, $25.99 – is effectively a body illuminator to add a gleaming gloss of bronze to your collar bones, shoulders and shins. If anything goes awry, the Bondi Sands Self Tan Eraser, $24.99, can magically bring you back to a blank canvas.
