In case the title didn't give you a big enough hint, today's post is quite simply my attempts to turn my pale skin to a moderate tan (well for me anyway...).
If your pale skinned, you'll know most fake tans (etc) have a probability of making you go a lovely orange colour - and personally that's not my ideal look. After years, and I mean years, of caking myself in the wrong colours, I've finally found the first signs of hope - thanks to Dove.
Dove's tinted moisturiser is a real gem, you can apply it gradually over a few days, just like moisturiser and it gives you a fresh and smooth covering of gradual tan. It's my secret weapon during summer months, and stays on in water - so no horror swimming pool moments! I also use mine with a Vaseline essential moisturiser, which is great to keep your skin soft and silky!
Dove tinted moisturiser, is currently around £4.99 in most stores, but you can get a bottle from Boots for half price at £2.50, so its not a major problem if you decide it's not for your skin!
A few Tips when buying fake tan for Pale Skin:
- Always make sure you check the colour range (e.g. don't get a product that says it's for dark skin).
- Test it first on a small section of your skin, to see if your happy with the colour, before you cover yourself in it!
- Don't just stick to one style of fake tan. It's good to use other methods of applying a tan, like spray bottles!
- ENJOY FINALLY HAVING A TAN!
Well that's all from me, I've got lots of school work (boring) to get on with...
Lots of Love,
