There’s all these red lipstick quotes, Coco Chanel apparently said ‘If you’re sad, add some more red lipstick and attack’ but I just don’t really get it. I think red lipstick is great at making me look a little more put together or like I’ve actually made an effort, but no beauty items has such a big affect on my mood and appearance as fake tan.
When I’m feeling a little down, it’s cold outside or I just want to feel and look a little better I always reach for a bottle of fake tan. It’s something I really look forward to and it changes my mood massively. It makes my skin more event, adds a great glow and even makes me look a little slimmer.
I think fake tan is potentially even scarier for people than a red lip is, which is saying something as I know a red lip can be very scary, and although I understand I think it’s an unnecessary fear. Once upon a time tan use to be orange and often result in a patchy applications but now with just a little practice and the right fake tan I think it can be mood changing and potentially life changing. I know that’s such a big claim but it totally changes my mood and even my outlook on life!
I’ve tried lots and lots of fake tans, found some really good ones that I reach for on different occasions but absolute favourite and the one I reach for a few times a week is Bondi Sands Lotion. I switch between the dark and light although I am currently using the light as I find it adds a lovely light glow.
This seems like a slightly pointless post but what I’m trying to say is that fake tan shouldn’t be scary. If you are missing your summer tan give it a go, I think the positives massively outweigh the negatives. I mentioned earlier last month my real struggle with grey winters in London and I really feel fake tan helps combat that, since London doesn’t seem to be hitting 20C anytime soon, I will be staying quite attached to my bottle of tan.
Don’t get me wrong a real tan makes me even happier but that’s currently not an option and at least this way I’m not exposing myself to sun damage.
