I just road-tested the Tan-Luxe x Paris Hilton self-tan and trust me it’s the closest thing to a professional spray tan I’ve ever used


I really love fake tan, but I am equally terrified of it. My Welsh blood means that I am naturally on the lower end of the pale scale and so I lean quite heavily into bronzing – a spray tan with James Harknett is my ultimate self-care experience. However, it doesn’t matter how many times I ask experts for their tanning tips, or whether I arm myself with the appropriate tools, inevitably I always end up making a few tanning mistakes. Which is why I am always an enthusiastic, yet nervous DIY tanner.

I have tried it all in the past – tanning waters, mousses, gradual and instant tans – and have now developed my tried & tested routine. It is a little unorthodox. I use Isle of Paradise tanning drops in my moisturiser every other day, I apply gradual tan with gusto to my arms and legs (only) every week to avoid looking ghostly, and then once the sun comes out and I start wearing shorter hemlines, I whack a bit of instant tan where needed. You will notice that my chest, stomach and back don’t get a look in. I’m aware that it’s rather a patchwork look, but my fear of making mistakes on every part of my body is too much for me to handle so I stick to the necessary areas only. (I should add that if I’m headed on a warm holiday and I know that I’ll be in swimwear, I pay a visit to James beforehand to give me both a boost of colour, and in confidence.)
