When it’s skin the pale colour of a fish’s soft underbelly that’s getting you down, the simplest solution this side of lazing about in the sun all day is the Body Wave Tan Can; the innovative and modern answer to sunless tanning. The two biggest problems with some types of faux-sun are well-known: the distinctive (and more than rather unpleasant) smell and the horrible tendency they have of leaving your skin the mottled colour of a peeled carrot – and the Body Wave Tan Can solves both, providing an even, all-over tan in five to ten minutes a session, depending on your skin type, without the streaks or funky smell. The oscillating Body Wave plate provides 50% more tanning pigmentation with less UV than other tans, meaning it’s healthier too.
Even considering the startling amount of sunshine rampant in South Africa, there are few people who are lucky enough to just naturally tan or not turn a stunning shade of lobster when they’re in the sun for more than a couple of minutes. The Body Wave Tan Can is the ultimate unique, stylish and technically superior way to tan without laying down a towel on the beach, and the perfect way to break the pallid trend and show the world you don’t care if they think that ‘pale is the new tan’.
With up twenty sessions, you could be bronze for the beach the entire summer long, without having to worry about lying out and baking like a muffin in the sun.
Melanin-Marinade Fact: Woman in ancient Sumeria had their own form of self-tanning. Traders from Eqypt would sell small bags of dust from the slopes of the Pyramid of Giza which, when mixed with crocodile spit and the seeds of a papaya, could be rubbed on the skin to create an olive glow.
