FAKE IT DON’T BAKE IT!

Want that gorgeous summer glow in just hours without risking harmful rays and potential skins cancers? Look no further, we've got your tanning dilemmas covered.

With so many tanning options on the market these days, how on earth do you know what products to use, or which spray tanning salon to try?? We’ve done the research and trust me, we have been spray tanning for 10+ years so have tried it all! We suffered through the orange streaks and war paint years (yes, we thought we looked amazeballs) but now, as spray tanning connoisseurs we prefer a subtle golden glow, that has been flawlessly applied.

BRONZALICIOUS SALON

The LFM girls swear by these airbrushed tans, they are definitely your summer must-have! Based in the CBD and Neutral Bay, the salon offers an extensive range of colours and formulas and they are the best in the business. Be prepared to pay slightly more than your average spray, but we promise it’s worth every cent. They offer tanning packages which will bring the overall price down and redeemable all year. Our favourite? The 2-hr Coco.

$59 per tan (cheaper in a package)

COCONUT SCRUB

For the perfect pre-tan primer, use this heavenly smelling scrub from Origins. It removes dead skin and leaves a nourishing oil on your skin. Use the night before your tan and then shower again in the morning to remove the oil. Also great for dry skin in winter and post flight skin dehydration!

Looking for an instant lotion that dries quickly, doesn’t rub off on your clothes and gives you a gorgeous glow? We have found it for you. Not only does it smell divine and acts as an instant bronze, it will develop over 6-8 hours so as the sun sets so will your tan.

J BRONZE TANNING MOUSSE

Yes. We are a little obsessed with our favourite Aussie success – Jennifer Hawkins.  Her amazing skin range includes a lightweight formula that is easy to apply due to the visible caramel bronze colour, so you can see where you have and haven’t missed a spot! We definitely recommend using a scrub mitt for this one otherwise you will end up with very dark palms (you can also buy these on Jen’s site).
