We all know that solar radiation is very harmful. What it does to our skin is damage collagen and elastin resulting in reduced elasticity overall and also causes hyperpigmentation – sun spots. All these put together result in premature skin ageing.  So, knowing this, our best ally is constant use of the right SPFs to deflect the sun’s harmful rays. But what happens when it’s time to ‘bare’ some skin? Nobody really likes tanless legs or shoulders and the best way to stop sun ageing and to show off some sexy, bronzed skin is to simply fake it!

A few years back I tried to use a fake tan product but unfortunately the result was traumatizing – to say the least. I ended up having streaky, patchy legs and stained clothes! This year, I stumbled upon St. Tropez which specializes on self-tan products and I was thrilled to discover that amongst their many products they also have a line which is hydrating, streak free/no transfer as well as Vegan Friendly and with 100% Natural Tanning Actives. And the best thing is the fact that these products are as see-through as it gets and they smell delicious! So here they are:

Self-Tan Purity Bronzing Water Mousse

‘The mousse glides across skin completely clear while the subtle sheen helps guide where you’ve already applied the mousse. Completely undetectable wear this during the day and within 4 – 8 hours you’ll be greeted with a beautiful medium, golden tan that is completely scent-free, doesn’t need to be rinsed off and is incredibly easy-to-use, meaning zero streaks’.

Self-Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist

‘This transparent and no-rinse Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist guarantees a medium, golden tan that lasts for days. Simply spritz the beautifully tropical-scented mist across the face (under or over make up) and wait for the transparent mist to develop’. Cult Beauty
