After what’s felt like the loooongest Winter, it’s officially Spring in Australia and the thought of Spring/Summer has gotten us way too excited.
Longer days, warmer nights, fun in the sun, and of course, beach days.
Unfortunately, too much tanning time can lead to some serious sun damage, which is why you’ve gotta fake it to make it when it comes to achieving the Grecian glow that we all desire.
Before we make it to the beach, we’ll be showing a little more skin. Shorter sleeves cropped pants and hey, we might even start leaving our jackets at home.
Either way, we’re saying no to pale, pasty skin and yes to bronzed, babin’ beauty.
Luckily for you guys, we’re no good at keeping secrets. We’re about to spill the beans on how to avoid tangoed hysteria to get the perfect golden glow that celebrities swear by.
It’s about time we let you in on which spray tans you should try, and how to make them last longer than your Saturday night out. Not even a spilt G+T will do any damage.
Our go-to brand and one of the longest serving in the beauty industry has got to be St. Tropez, and they’ve got ALL the goods to give you the dream glow and make it last almost as long as real sun-kissed skin. Apply the St. Tropez Tan Optimiser Body Moisturiser designed to hydrate your skin and soften dry areas before you apply your fake tan, or head to your spray tan appointment. The oil absorbs quickly, and unlike some of the cheaper brands, helps you to achieve a natural-looking glow.

The Australian tan that we all love. Yep, even Kylie Jenner is a fan, and if she is, then so are we. What we love about Bondi Sans, is that they provide products that save you time in terms of your beauty regime. Bondi Sands have come up with a solution that literally removes ALL TRACES of excess tan in just ten minutes. You can remove and reapply your tan in the space of half an hour and it doesn’t get much better than that.

Game changers of the industry in the UK, Vita Liberata concocted the first odourless tan and was one of the first completely non-toxic tanning brands free from parabens, perfume, alcohol and all chemicals of concern. Now available in Australia, we swear by the 2-3 Week Tan Mousse that comes in shades fair, medium and dark, and is basically your summer tan in a bottle. The Self Tan Dry Oil also offers SPF 50 protection and is the best alternative to heavy sun exposure!
