Eid Special: All the Tanning Methods Women Swear by During Summertime

Look me in the eye and tell me you don’t believe that getting that glorious bronze skin is the most important mission you have in summer. We all literally wait for the sun to come smother us with its golden rays of happiness and turn us into the crisp Goddesses that we aspire to be. We asked 5 women about their tanning secrets and bronzing spells and brought them all to you, in order to throw some wisdom in your pretty face:

1. “For me, beer is the ultimate tanning tool that most women don’t even know they’re missing out on. Ya, things can get a bit sticky but that glow you get at the end is worth all the hassle. Besides, what’s better than tanning and sipping on beer all at the same time? nothing. That’s what.”  –F.K. 23 yrs

2. “I don’t wait for the sun to tan because of all the fuss and the sand and all. That’s why I literally worship self-tanning sprays! All you have to do is spray yourself from head to toe; wait for the spray to take effect in approximately 3 hours and then you’re ready to go. Yep, that’s it. Bye, sun.” –S.T. 24 yrs

3. “I like to do things the way they should be done. I grab my tanning oil, pick a sunny spot, place my towel, cover myself in tanning goodness and then wait for the sun to do its magic. It’s highly important to purchase a tanning oil with an SPF no less than 50, though. Not getting skin cancer is definitely more important than getting the perfect tan.” M.A. 30 yrs

4. “I know it sounds weird but the key to a really good tan is Mecuricome, yes, that red antiseptic that you clean your cuts and scrapes with. IT WORKS! Don’t judge before you try. Yes, you’ll have to look like an oven chicken for a while but the colour you get afterwards is everything!” –F.A. 28 yrs

5. “It’s so hard for me to tan without getting some sort of skin inflammation because I’m so white. So, what I do now is; I apply some sunblock on my face, shoulders and chest first, then drench myself in a dark tanning oil, which works just fine for me.” –A.S. 25 yrs
