Beach life!

The mo­ment I book my flights the prepa­ra­tion starts. Travel in­sur­ance? Check. Board­ing card? Check. Cel­lulite-bust­ing cream. Check. There are bumps and lumps to smooth away, or­ange-peel skin to pum­mel, speedy mani/ pedis to en­dure, and lay­ers and lay­ers of wrin­kle-zap­ping, lip-plump­ing and su­per-rich mois­turis­ers and balms to wear just so that I can look half de­cent on hol­i­day. There are fa­cials with gold or snake venom to try so that I can ap­pear fresh and cam­era-ready as I pose in front of iconic build­ings around the globe. And luck­ily I have a se­cret weapon that en­sures I ar­rive at my des­ti­na­tion look­ing jet-set glam – a tan.

I suf­fer from tanorexia and spend as much time as pos­si­ble on the beach turn­ing a deep golden brown at all times (yes I have even been known to catch some rays dur­ing the height of sum­mer). While the creams and lotions try their best, a tan hides a mul­ti­tude of flaws. To get your body beachready turn to where we’ve picked the best beauty prod­ucts to help you look great. Happy hol­i­days!
