3 reasons to go for a darker fake tan this summer

2 Min Read Friday 26th July 2019

This summer has been an absolute scorcher so far. Air conditioning units have gone kaput trying to keep up with the rising temperatures and ice lolly sales are soaring. Kids have taken residence in paddling pools across the nation’s gardens. But the big question is, how is your skin doing? We hope you’ve been slathering on the sunscreen and opting for a safe tan that comes from a bottle?

Here are three reasons to go for a darker fake tan this summer:

  1. A darker glow will better hide scars and blemishes, like stretch marks from pregnancy, teenage acne and even rosacea. A richer shade of tan works brilliantly to camouflage unsightly blotches or areas of discolouration and uneven pigmentation — it’s sort of like waking up with your tinted moisturiser already on!
  2. Even if you wear sunscreen every day to protect your skin from harmful UV rays (as you should!), it’s likely that your skin will naturally tan a little bit under the sunshine. That means your regular shade of tanner might not make a noticeable difference to your skin tone. Why not go a touch darker and see how you feel about it? A richer tan is the perfect complement to summer hair that’s naturally lightened under the sun and if you try it once one might feel bold enough to try it again in the cooler season. This is the perfect time to experiment.
  3. The darker your tan, the greater it will highlight your existing muscle tone, guaranteeing that you look leaner and fitter without spending an extra minute at the gym. Simply apply, allow your glow to develop and then wash off in the shower to reveal golden skin that instantly tones your entire body.
