To re-create a faux tan, start off by exfoliating the skin and moisturizing any dry areas. (Heather used the brand's Tan Optimizer Body Polish ($16) and Tan Optimizer Body Moisturizer ($30).) Next, use latex gloves and apply St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Glow ($18) using sweeping strokes. Best of all, this safe way to tan is also temporary and won't rub off. To remove, just wash with soap and water. It's as easy as that.

Until Sunday, travelers at the Gatwick Airport in London can get a free preflight spray tan. Dubbed the Gatwick Glow, the service is a result of research done by the airport which concluded that having an existing tan preholiday gives vacationers more confidence. "Gatwick Glow is designed to give our passengers a boost. We want them to head off on their holiday feeling great about themselves," the Gatwick Airport's Kim Francis told the Daily Mail. Perhaps the thought of a gooey cinnamon bun already gives you that warm glow, but would you consider getting your warm glow on by spray-tanning at the gate?
Luxury self-tanner brand St. Tropez lost the seal of approval from Prince's Trust, one of the UK's biggest children's charities, after releasing an ad with Kelly Osbourne. In the ad, she states that using fake tanner makes you look not only "10 lbs. skinnier" but also "healthy." She also stated that, before the self-tanner, she "looked like Miss Piggy," which is a pretty disheartening statement.
St. Tropez had been donating 10 pounds (no pun intended) from every purchase to the Trust, but after angry letters from parents about the ad's possible effect on kids, the charity pulled its official support. Kelly's natural skin tone is lovely, and she would look pretty at any weight, but self-tanning is a perfectly legitimate choice if it makes you happy. Do you think a statement like Kelly's would really drive young girls to have a poor body image, or are people overreacting?
The benefits of self tanners are plentiful. Still, nobody likes to have orange or brown splotches left on the hands after applying them. Frequent reviewer Stef42678 really likes St. Tropez Self Tan Remover Sachets to avoid said problem, and here's why:
This is a great invention for all of those self tanners that leave your hands streaked or colored. These pads are so easy to use because you just rub them beetween your palms and they come clean. Be careful using near your tanned skin because it will rub off there too. I like that the pads don't feel greasy and leave your hands moisturized and color free.

Diddy, crisp from head to toe, enjoyed his vacation in St. Tropez yesterday. In his downtime from making bands, he's been hanging out with some other Hollywood heavy hitters like Penelope and Bono. Those two definitely turned some heads when they were seen holding hands last week. Of course, it was nothing and Bono's wife is also enjoying the yacht life. Meanwhile, rumors follow Penelope everywhere and she supposedly spent Saturday night in Diddy's private cabin. Who knows what the truth is, but it seems like poor girl can't even talk to a guy without being labeled his newest fling. Hey, at least beautiful Penelope seems good natured about it -- how could she complain when she's hanging out in St. Tropez after all?
