Happy Friday everyone! I found this webcam image on my computer and thought I’d share it with you. I get a lot of questions from people (also when out shopping), if I was on vacation. In fact, I wasn’t – however, I was in a 2min tan-shower and I believe the price is so worth it. I started the spray-tan late last year, first time round in November I believe it was. I absolutely love it now. The photo is from one of my first times – so actually I’m not even quite that tanned anymore, as I chose a slightly lighter shade to make it look more natural. I remember in the beginning I wasn’t all too sure and was much darker – it really didn’t fit my natural skin tone, nor my hair color. This photo is actually not all too correct – the lightning isn’t natural and my tan looks darker than it usually is. I’ll share another tanned one with you soon, though!
I’m usually the white bread between everyone else – literally, I am so pale in winter. This way I look much healthier and well, just like I came back from holiday. The best thing, I almost feel like I just had a short holiday when I come back from my spray tanning session. I do it around about every 10 days, sometimes stay pale in between though. So far I’ve done it in Kaarst (Germany) once but generally I go BeautySpace right near the main station in Zurich. It’s the most practical when I finish work – I jump into my short shower and then head back home.
Before trying spray-tan the first time I highly recommend you to read the before & after instructions. A good peeling the day before is a must and you shouldn’t use any perfume or body lotions on the day of the spray. So far I have only tried out the clear-spray, meaning the tan slowly comes after 6-8 hours. I usually just put on a bathrobe at home (don’t wear satin or do anything to make you sweat!) and lie down. It’s my lazy evening of the week – it’s great! Upon awakening I am a new me – a tanned me. I always feel so much more relaxed all of the sudden.
Not only does it look pretty: it feels pretty. Can something even feel pretty? What I’m trying to say is that the spray-tan literally hydrates the skin. Since I want the tan to hold as long as possible I tend to cream my body much more the days after, which gives even more hydration to the skin. A must-do when it’s cold outside and the skin is longing for some water re-fills. Secondly, I barely need any make-up. The make-up I usually wore in winter (foundation and whatnot) was basically to cover up the paleness – not needed anymore! All I need is my mascara, some bronze powder and/or rouge and voila, I’m done within 10 minutes in the morning. Which is amazing, since I also love sleeping in as long as possible.
