>I looked at myself in my new full length mirror. There is absolutely no doubt that I am white. In fact I am so white the glare from my body would require you to wear sunglasses or other protective eye gear. I used to be able to lie in the sun for hours and would emerge a bronze goddess – easy peasy. But I can’t anymore. I burn to a crisp within 15 minutes and then turn white again. It’s not ayoba.
So I decided that I will try self tan. I bought some spray tan and crossed fingers. I showered and exfoliated and all that and stood in my naked glory in the bedroom and started spraying. My husband thought it was hillarious and gave a running commentary thoughout the whole process. It was surprisingly easy using the spray instead of the cream.
After spraying my entire body and hoping for the best I got into bed and said a quick prayer that I don’t wake up the next morning looking like an orange (although it would have been an excellent excuse to not go to work). I woke up this morning a lovely bronze colour yay! But despite washing my hands about 4 times my palms are very “tanned”. I tried Domestos, it didn’t work. My ankles are also a bit splotchy but a quick scrub with the exfoliator thingie sorted that out. I also have a splotch on my upper leg where water dripped when I washed my hands *sigh* but all in all I would call the experiment a success!
I think I will go to a salon next time though!
