After my consultation at Dr Lancer I am now even more wary of going in the sun. I was on the beach for a couple of hours on Saturday with factor 50 and I still burned. One reason for this is I have stopped taking the Imedeen pills that prepare your skin for the sun. I wanted to see if there was a difference and there was- I burned!
So I am back on Imedeen but I need to be careful for a couple of weeks to allow my skin to build up its resistance. With all the bronzed limbs around there is no way I could go cold turkey…
I booked in for a spray tan.
In typical LA fashion you don’t call, you book on line, and off I went to Bronzed.
The therapist was so thorough! You have a menu you can choose from- I went for the Express tan which is ready in three hours. Normally I come out sticky but not with Bronzed, they have all these tricks so that you come out glowing. The tan leaves your skin with a divine sheen, which means no down time or having to wear loose clothes.
You wait 3 hours and then shower it off so I was good to go out. This is how the tan looked that evening for our dinner at the amazing Spago in Beverly Hills.
The next morning the colour had developed so beautifully and so evenly- it is by far the best one I have ever had.
If you are in California head to Bronzed Air Brush Tanning and I will let you know where you can find their products. They are launching in New York soon.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Bronzed opens in London soon; in the meantime my suitcase will be full of their tan extendor!
