For years i have avoided the sun and opted to keep my skin white but this year i definitely want some colour for a change.
In the past i have tried and thought about getting some "sunless" colour -
*I tried to put fake tan lotion on my skin before and it was awful. I turned orange, blotchy and streaky in no time. It looked like i had some kind of tropical disease. It took my ages to exfoliate the orange off.
*I also tried those tablets that are suppose to help you body to gradually tan. They didnt work at all (but i did start getting a slight orange tinge to my eyes - freaky).
*I thought about going for a professional spray tan, but after hearing your chances of going orange are still quite high I gave up on that idea too.
So... i am just going to have put on some SPF 30 sunblock and hit the beach as often as I can and hope for the best :)
PS - I bought a bikini (in Dubai) that looks almost like the one in the picture but mine is Yellow polka dots on a white bikini. Its made by Salinas. At least my skin is not quite as white as the mannequins colour.
