Three ways to get a real looking tan without hitting the sun bed
Whether you’re protecting your skin from sun damage (and those pesky wrinkles), you need to top up that gorgeous sun kissed summer glow (without lazing on a lounger – who has time for that now that school’s started?!), or you’ve been stuck in the office and need a just-back-from-an-exotic-holiday look pronto, we’ve found three ways to look bronzed and beautiful, no streaky orange tans included. Time to fake it, mamas!
Want to look like you’ve just jetted back from the tropics (of course you do, mama!). For a deeper looking tan, the Double Dip is your answer. First up, a Body Polisher is used to exfoliate the arms, legs and body before a manual application of tanning products to suit your skin tone is carefully applied by an experienced therapist. And then for the double-dipping – you’ll need to re-visit the lounge the following day for a second application of tan. Genius.
AED 400 for a 45 minute initial treatment followed by a 20 minute next-day treatment

If the idea of standing semi-naked in a salon spray booth isn’t hugely appealing, or if leaving the house isn’t an option (we totally get it, mamas), then call the experts at Bronzelicious who’ll bring the spray to you. Don’t panic, this won’t result in a spray-tanned home as the service comes complete with a pop-up tan tent! Choose your desired effect (a subtle glow or a dark walnut hue), and in only 20 minutes time, you’ll get an even tan that lasts up to 10 days. Oh, and the best bit, other than the fact you don’t need to leave home? The Bronzelicious tanning solutions include Aloe Vera gel, vitamins and moisturising agents and are Paraben-free, alcohol-free, odour-free and not tested on animals.
