In my last blogpost I was parading in my Holy She bathing suit and I promised my next blogpost would be about how I get my skin ready for summer in just a few minutes. I used to sunbath hours and hours to get my see-through skin slightly darker, but since 5 years I got used to a faster, more effective and healthier way to get that summer-skin.
Like I wrote in my last blogpost, my skin is naturally so white it almost glows in the dark. This doesn't need to be a problem of course and I solute women who feel perfectly fine and beautiful being fair skinned.
So let's start by saying it's all good and embracing yourself for who you are is what makes all of us beautiful.
Nevertheless, I have always longed for skin that tans easily, instead of turning red the second it sees a hint of sunshine. As a teenager, I used to sunbath for hours; sweating away, checking my tan-lines, occasionally putting on sunscreen and basically waisting my time. By the end of the vacation, I would have a sun-kissed skin, but one can wonder if this is the healthiest and most fun way to get there 😐
At one point, I stopped my unhealthy sunbathing radically, since it's so bad for the skin and even dangerous. I'm always using high SPF sunscreen products and stay in the shade when the sun is at its strongest. However, I'm still not ready to just be super white and I don't think I'll ever be. I simply feel so much prettier with a nice tan 😅, so I started looking for alternative ways to get that summer-skin.
If you have a fair skin like I do, you can probably relate to the hassle that comes with using self-tan products. I've tried many of them, but the off-putting smell, the orange color and the uneven result always disappointed me. This was until a friend of mine suggested YUCEE, already 5 years ago.
YUCEE is honestly the best spray tan I know, so I was super excited to collaborate with them and make this blogpost happen.
WHAT'S SO YUCEE?
THE USE AND THE COLOR
YUCEE is a spray tan, which is easy to use. You can see where you've applied the product, because the product itself has a brown color. That being said, many self-tan products contain caroteen, which often makes for an orange color. The active ingredient in YUCEE is DHA, a natural ingredient. "DHA is a colorless sugar which cross-links with the top layer of your skin (the stratum corneum) to create a darkening of the skin." (http://www.bostonmagazine.com/health/blog/2014/01/14/are-spray-tans-safe/).
Hence, not this 🍊 but this🍫 (I don't know if you want to look like a chocolate bar, but you know what I mean 😂)
I think it depends on the way your body reacts to fake-tan products and whether you're easily annoyed by funky smells, but the typical scent of self-tan products isn't a nice one, if you ask me. Often, self-tan products have a heavy perfume to them to mask this smell and when the product starts reacting with the skin, it creates a really off-putting smell.
Let's not say YUCEE is scent-less, but the perfume in the product is very subtle and after applying the product, this doesn't change as much as in other products. Big YAY!!
As long as you follow the instructions, it's super easy to get an even and natural looking tan, which gets darker if you repeat the treatment the next day. This means you can spray yourself, have a good night sleep, take a shower and start the day with a gorgeous summer-skin.
This mean you can head to the beach, simply keep using that high SPF sunscreen and spend your time relaxing, instead of stressing over getting that desired tan ☺️.
SO HERE'S HOW IT WORKS FOR ME

What's your opinion on sunbathing and spray tans? If you're into spray tans, then this is a great product to use! Of course you can visit the shop to find this 'Tan in a Can'!
