To Fake Tan or Not to Fake Tan?

I am of a very pasty nature with a slightly yellow hue. While I could easily be mistaken for Casper the friendly ghost, I will never look the same as Gisele Bündchen, all golden and glowing.

Which is strange, seeing as my mum, dad and brother all tan easily and fairly darkly. I however will have a smattering of freckles explode over my face like a dot-to-dot drawing, go slightly tan, like I haven’t washed in a day, and that’ll be that. I’m clearly adopted or the milkman’s, as I always thought.

This leaves me with the age old question, to fake tan or not to fake tan. There are pros and cons of both, which I have experienced first hand and listed below.

To Not Fake Tan


I feel like lazy will always win. Unless I give St. Tropez’s Gradual Tan in Shower Lotion a go…What do you think, to tan or not to tan?
