Isn’t May brilliant! Bank holidays to look forward to and some amazing weather hopefully on the horizon (we will try not to jinx it) it’s a great time to soak up some of that glorious sun and feel the benefits of some much-needed Vitamin D and a tan to make you feel a million pounds.
Get a killer tan in quarantine
The tanning shops are shut and while we can’t be sure when life will resume again, let’s keep that skin glowing as best we can the natural way. Let’s face it, the great British weather is not predictable, with glorious sun one minute and rain the next we need to make use of every second! Here we’re going to help you create the perfect tanning haven to make you feel like the queen of quarantine and bring the holiday vibes to your garden.
Pull up a pew
Taking an hour or so in the garden is a lovely way to de-stress, relax and unwind. Make the most of your space and create a comfy corner facing the sun. It doesn’t have to be a fancy deckchair, although this does look nice. Get some blankets, cushions and arrange them on the lawn. The most important part is creating a space that will allow you to fully relax. Maybe lock the children in the house with plenty of snacks to avoid disruption.
Get a book at the ready
One of the best past times when relaxing in the sun? Reading! What is your favourite book? Or do you prefer an audible so you can completely immerse yourself? If you’re looking for something new, here are the BBC’s top recommended reads of 2020:
- Weather by Jenny Offill. …
- Real Life by Brandon Taylor. …
- Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid. …
- Motherwell: A Girlhood by Deborah Orr. …
- Apeirogon by Colum McCann. …
- Cleanness by Garth Greenwell. …
- Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall. …
- The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel
Staying well hydrated keeps you healthy inside and out, your skin will thank you for plenty of water. Fancy something with a little more kick? Create a delicious cocktail to really make it feel like you’re on holiday. A quarantini perhaps? The makemeacocktail.com site is brilliant, just put in all the ingredients you have at home and it generates a selection of cocktails that you can make with what you have. What can you make from gin, gin and gin?
Make the most of it
The sun is shining, but can you really get your glow on with only a small amount of time in the garden? Er YES! Vita-Tan is designed to build up the natural melanin production in our bodies, meaning you’ll tan super-fast even in British weather. You’ll walk out of lockdown a bronzed goddess!
Don’t forget your lotion
