Morning dunnys-mum

I got back this week and an naturally fair skinned with red hair. I used factor 30 the first week and factor 15 second week, and am a nice brown healthy looking colour.

Like you I used sunbed before going to build up a base.

Just remember to keep applying especially if in and out of the pool. I spent a lot of time in the pool as it was sooooooooooooo hot.

Have a great time
