I went and had a look at some in Boots today but I got all confused and thought I should come on here first and ask advice from the experts. I am milk bottle white and don't take a tan easily. In six weeks time I will be on holiday in Greece and this time I rould really like to look a bit brown when I go. So, first of all, how long before and how often should I do the spray tanny stuff? Do I need different stuff for body and face and where is the dividing line - chin? neck? What brand is good for pale people? And a supplementary - has anyone tried that Boots holiday hair spray stuff? Or any other tips to stop my hair turning into straw? Thank you all most kindly.
That's a really scary concept Collision. I've never even had my legs waxed. Actually I don't think I've ever even been in a beauty salon or whatever they are called these days. What happens? Are paper knickers involved? I don't think I'm brave enough for that.
I had a pro xen tan recently - was a bit orange the next day but after that it looked great and yes paper knickers involved - don't worry about it - you never have to go back if you don't like it, better than DIY blotchy? scrub the day before.
Home spray tans - have only used the Loreal and Garnier ones, find Loreal the better of the two as the Garnier one went streaky everytime I used it. Would start about 2 weeks before your holiday, building up the colour every other day (get the light ones, then it wont look too dark too quickly, find it just makes me look grubby). Make sure you exfoliate all over, esp before the first go. I do use a different face one as find it gives a finer coverage, I stop around the jaw area - but its not an obvious line, just find that if you do your neck too much it looks a bit obvious. Oh and wipe your eyebrows afterwards - I am sporting a slightly tango'd look under my brows at the moment from tan build up (dont forget to exfoliate there first)!
