WANT A BET­TER TAN? GIVE PEAS A CHANCE

Life & Style Weekend - - YOU -

If you’re a fake tan fan, you’ll know how dif­fi­cult it is to main­tain a per­fect all-over glow.

From streaky legs to orange el­bows, there are a whole lot of things that can go wrong.

But now we’ve found the rem­edy for one of these dis­as­ters – and it’s re­ally sim­ple.

Most of us shave be­fore tan­ning, as it makes ap­pli­ca­tion eas­ier and helps to cre­ate a smooth fin­ish.

How­ever, once our colour has de­vel­oped, we can some­times be left with pretty un­sightly dots.

This is be­cause shav­ing in a hot shower or bath opens our pores. The tan then seeps into them, even­tu­ally dry­ing in tiny spots.

Luck­ily, you only need to pop to the su­per­mar­ket to sort the prob­lem out. Be­cause this hack in­volves – wait for it – frozen peas.

Tan­ning ex­pert James Read has re­vealed that be­fore tan­ning, you should rub a packet of peas over your legs.

He tells Byrdie.co.uk: “This will seal the pores in your legs so you don’t end up with those an­noy­ing dots af­ter self-tan­ning.”

Veg re­ally is good for us, isn’t it?

Bet­ter hope that no­body walks in on us half­way through that side of the oper­a­tion.
