Upon returning from a sunny getaway, many people revel in their post-vacation tans. However, some travelers desire a golden glow before they set foot on the sand.
According to the Daily Mail, a recent poll conducted by London’s Gatwick Airport found that 32 percent of people most dread baring pale skin on the beach, insisting they would rather reveal cellulite and bulging bellies. Additionally, more than half said that having a tan would boost their confidence on vacation.
In response to the findings, the news source reports that, for a limited time, Gatwick Airport will offer free spray tans to passengers flying to St. Tropez.
But you don’t have to go to Gatwick to get bronzed skin before a beach-side break. Instead, use a sunless tanner to help you achieve your desired pre-vacation glow.
Peter Thomas Roth Natural Looking Self-Tanner is a fragrance-free formula that is safe to use on both your body and face. Fake Bake offers a plethora of sunless tanners, including lotion, spray and mousse, and even offers a product formulated for men, Man Bronzing Gel.
However, before you hit the beach, remember to load up on sunblock with a high SPF – your skin may appear tan, but you still need protection from harmful UV rays!
