Why faking it is better

Fake tanning is no longer about streaky legs, orange palms or feeling sticky, uncomfortable and smelling like biscuits. Nowadays an even, natural-looking glow is much more achievable.

If you want a gorgeous golden glow this summer, but don't want to suffer the risks of over-exposure to the sun, why not fake it with the help of The Barn and Vita Liberata.

Kelly Hooper, Director of The Barn, said: "Self-tanning is becoming the most popular way to achieve perfect, bronzed skin, and is the safest option.

“Too much sun exposure, either from the sun or sun-beds, has so many possible risks; premature ageing, skin pigmentation as well as more serious effects such as cataracts and skin cancer.”

The Barn uses the multi award winning self-tanning brand Vita Liberata. Vita Liberata is the world’s first non-toxic and organic tan, free from parabens, perfume and alcohol, with certified organic ingredients that nourish and condition skin for the perfect self-tan.

Kelly said: “The Vita Liberata tanning collection offers a natural-looking, odourless tan result that replicates a natural suntan, as well as providing anti-ageing skincare benefits.

On Monday (26 June) Natalie from Vita HQ is visiting The Barn for a live demonstration on how to achieve the best tan at home. There will be a Q&A session, top tips and a free goodie bag.

Tickets are just £5 and redeemable against any Vita Liberata products you buy on the evening. Call to book your space: 01934 751217.
