We couldn’t help but notice that some members of the Royal party were sporting very glowing tans at the fabulous wedding of Catherine and William. It could be that they’d just returned from a holiday in Hawaii, but we’ve a sneaky feeling that there was some spray-tanning taking place behind the scenes! Whether you’ve got a wedding coming up or not, we love a subtle bronze glow for setting off traditional pastel wedding colours or making sure that any brights don’t overwhelm your skin tone. A big favourite amongst celebrities is St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Spray – it’s got a nozzle that allows for 360 degree application (which means you don’t need someone else to do your back!) and an ultra fine spray to prevent streaking. Ensure that you exfoliate your skin first, particularly on extra dry patches such as knees and elbows, and our top tip for fuss free application is to do it in the shower cubicle – all you need to do is use the shower head to rinse away any mist that escaped your body.
