Natural Beauty Tanning

This coming weekend sees the wedding we have all been anticipating for quite a few months take place on Saturday. As you can imagine we are all very excited about it esp my kiddies who are appearing in their first ever “ring bearer and flower girl” roles! I have also been preparing in my own way and have already blogged about my “What to Wear to a Wedding Woes” along with my solutions… Next on my agenda has been the prettification of this winter bod. Thursday saw me visit the beauty salon for a facial and mini-mani (I always leave my nails to the last minute and end up rushing or leaving the house with wet polish so I am so chuffed with myself about having this sorted already!) I have also booked an appointment to have my hair “done” on the day! Yup, the pampering this week has been non-stop and I can’t say I’m hating it… 😉 One last thing remained for me to tackle. After checking the weather forecast I realized that the day is going to be lovely and warm and sunny. Hooray! No problem there, but when I tried on my outfit and shoes I was almost blinded by the light! My VERY PALE SKIN. Winter in Cape Town has lasted forever and I have hardly seen the sun let alone spent some time browning my legs! That’s when I discovered the best tanning option around, Natural Beauty Tanning.

Natural Beauty Tanning is a mobile beauty and tanning service in Cape Town that comes right to the comfort of your own home. This tanning option is far less messy than a diy job, much safer than lying in the sun for hours and MUCH quicker too! Obviously I was concerned that I might end up looking like an extra from “The Only Way is Essex” or “Jersey Shore” and definitely did not want to walk out orange but my fears were unmerited! I popped into the spray booth (a pop up portable tent) for 15 mins, did a could of twirls for the product to be evenly applied by the lovely Nicole and popped out again into some loose fitting clothes. Over the course of the day the colour developed into a very natural-looking golden brown – not unlike it would look had I just come back from a week in the Seychelles 😉
Some more good news about this tanning option is that the imported solution is 100% organic and Paraban FREE and not harmful to your skin at all. A real win! I have been LOVING the results (as has my husband!) and I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. If I follow the right procedure of moisturizing after every shower then it should last up to 12 days which would be great as we are off on a holiday soon and I’m hoping the weather plays along so that skirts, shorts and strappy tops are going to be a staple of my holiday wardrobe!

If you have the need for a quick tan, be it for a wedding, another event or even a holiday in the sun where you don’t want to scare the other beach goers then keep Natural Beauty Tanning in mind. At R250 it’s a very reasonable and quick way to boost your confidence! Nicole travels all around the Western Cape and only charges an additional rate of R100 if your requested location is 30km outside of the Durbanville area. Pamper parties and group bookings are subject to discounts which might be a great idea for a Kitchen Tea or Birthday or even just a fun Girls Night!
