3 Ways To Get A Pre Holiday Glow
Posted by Stephanie Orr in Body
I'm 72 hours away from jetting off to those beautiful blissful skies which will lead me to the land of sand, sea and segregation and the same question which generally runs through my head this time every year is niggling me again: Should I pre - tan?
I have to put my hands up and admit I am quite partial to the perks of a glow boost just before a holiday after all let's face it, it wouldn’t be a traditional holiday if I wasn’t running around for last minute manicures, facials and bikini waxes to the panic stricken sound of my Dad chanting: ‘Will you be ready on time? The plane won’t wait for you!”
It's a well known fact that a hint of colour breeds confidence but as a beauty journalist I wouldn’t be doing my job if I told you to just sit outside and hope for the best, the smarter way to obtain a goddess glow is to ease your way in and that’s exactly where the perks of a pre holiday tan step in.
