My last catchup with the girls, I brought up a discussion about fake tanning.  With a girlfriend who has a spraying tanning business and being the only one who hasn't tried tanning products, I felt a bit embarrassed since I'm always the one that they come to on advice on new products and tips.

It's a subject I never thought of delving into because I have olive skin and didn't think I needed it. So out I dug old photos and did notice that I looked paler than everyone else on the arms and legs.  A tan gives a healthy glow to the skin as well as looking younger and fresher.

So this is all new to me.  One brand that seems to be making waves is FAKE BAKE.

From Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Nicole Scherzinger, Cheryl Cole to Emma Watson, they have been faux tanning for years.

Bursting into the beauty scene in 1995, Fake Bake took the tan world by storm. Spanning multiple award-wins, including topping the New York Time’s best self-tanning list, this bronzing go-to boasts a cult following of A-list celebrities and beauty experts alike.

Fake Bake was the first self-tan line to combine the naturally derived tanning agents DHA and Erythulose to offer next-generation results that incorporated improved natural colour development, greater colour intensity, increased evenness of coverage, reduced streaking and longer lasting tan results with a slower fade rate.

Working with each skin’s natural pigment, the unique Fake Bake formulations combine advanced botanical ingredients with the add-on of efficacious skin care enhancers like anti-ageing, anti-cellulite  and anti-oxidants to deliver much more than just a sun-kissed faux-glow.

The ultimate faux tan with extra, Fake Bake formulations additionally are free from parabens, artificial preservatives and are non-comedogetic, to not clog pores. Further, a wash-off cosmetic colour guide makes for a flawlessly even application every time.
