Everyone’s favourite reality TV family, The Kardashians, are now branching their ever-growing business empire into fake tan. The gorgeous trio of sisters always look their best, and, according to Kim, a tan is her must-have accessory at all times. Kim tells Marie Claire; ‘I think tanning has really been a way of life for all of us, living in California,’ she says. ‘Especially, more recently, the need for sunless tan. When I travel, the one thing that makes me feel alive whether or not I have makeup on is a tan, especially in my face.’
… We couldn’t agree more, Miss Kardashian! Here at Indulgence, we’re all big fans of fake tanning, and it looks like the trend for a healthy glow on your skin isn’t going anywhere. (Despite the snow currently outside…)
Fake tans, or ‘sunless tanners’ are great to give you a pick-me-up when you’re feeling a little dull and your skin is looking a bit pale. They are also safe to use, and, with new improved formulas being brought out all the time, they are easy to apply and natural looking (depending how dark you want to go, of course!)
Our personal favourite tanning system has to be the spray tan. Most of the Indulgence girls have one a week to keep us glowing all year round. The spray tanning method allows for precise and even coverage over the whole body, giving a golden, even tan all over. We recommend exfoliating prior to treatment to remove all dead skin cells and enable a smoother application. We also ask that all shaving and waxing be done at least 48 hours before having the tan, as this prevents any dots appearing from the tan settling into open pores on the skin surface. Barrier cream is applied over knees, elbows, hands and feet, as these areas tend to take to the tan more than other parts of the body, helping even out the tone of the tan shade. We then recommend moisturising every day to keep the tan looking fresh and natural, as it eventually begins to wear away after around 5-7 days. You can always top up areas on the body that may fade quicker, such as hands and the face from extra washing.
