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!
