I used to go to the sunbed quite alot, but have stopped going completely. I stopped for about 2 years then went a few times before the wedding as I needed the colour. However, I don't think I will ever go again. I still have mintues left from last year and live across the road from the tanning shop, it's very tempting but I will stay strong and not go!!!! Don't go ladies, not only will it cause premature aging, it can also cause skin cancer.
I thought it would be appropriate for me to share what form of tanning I use since I am extremely happy with the results. I have been using the Garnier summer body and face range for about 2 years now. It gives a natural looking result that is builable, it is available in light sun kissed and deep sun kissed. It doesn't smell awful like most tanning products, it is actually quite pleasent, it reminds me and my husband of "pancakes" yes pancakes.. there is a scent but it's not that strong. I use after exfoliating and creaming dry areas. I use it about once or twice a week all over my body. It keeps me moisturised and glowing at an affordable price! I use the cream formula where I use my hands to apply, I used to use the spray bottle but to be honest it takes longer to apply, the floor gets wet and you are not quite sure if you have applied everywhere plus the colour is not as intense.
I also use the summer face about once or twice a week too, it doesn't break me out and is a very light and moisturising cream overall. I can't use every moisturiser as my skin is super dry and sensitive, this works for me!
I also use St Tropez now and again, but to be honest it's such a mission to apply and actually quite messy. I'd use the garnier one any day, it doesn't streak, smell bad or cost alot of money. So.. if you're thinking you need a glow, why not opt for something that doesn't break the bank? Let me know your thoughts on this if you already use it, and please feel free to advise me on new or similar products.
