Eid Special: All the Tanning Methods Women Swear by During Summertime

Published

on

Look me in the eye and tell me you don’t believe that getting that glorious bronze skin is the most important mission you have in summer. We all literally wait for the sun to come smother us with its golden rays of happiness and turn us into the crisp Goddesses that we aspire to be. We asked 5 women about their tanning secrets and bronzing spells and brought them all to you, in order to throw some wisdom in your pretty face:

1. “For me, beer is the ultimate tanning tool that most women don’t even know they’re missing out on. Ya, things can get a bit sticky but that glow you get at the end is worth all the hassle. Besides, what’s better than tanning and sipping on beer all at the same time? nothing. That’s what.”  –F.K. 23 yrs

2. “I don’t wait for the sun to tan because of all the fuss and the sand and all. That’s why I literally worship self-tanning sprays! All you have to do is spray yourself from head to toe; wait for the spray to take effect in approximately 3 hours and then you’re ready to go. Yep, that’s it. Bye, sun.” –S.T. 24 yrs

3. “I like to do things the way they should be done. I grab my tanning oil, pick a sunny spot, place my towel, cover myself in tanning goodness and then wait for the sun to do its magic. It’s highly important to purchase a tanning oil with an SPF no less than 50, though. Not getting skin cancer is definitely more important than getting the perfect tan.” M.A. 30 yrs

4. “I know it sounds weird but the key to a really good tan is Mecuricome, yes, that red antiseptic that you clean your cuts and scrapes with. IT WORKS! Don’t judge before you try. Yes, you’ll have to look like an oven chicken for a while but the colour you get afterwards is everything!” –F.A. 28 yrs

5. “It’s so hard for me to tan without getting some sort of skin inflammation because I’m so white. So, what I do now is; I apply some sunblock on my face, shoulders and chest first, then drench myself in a dark tanning oil, which works just fine for me.” –A.S. 25 yrs

These are the 7 Essentials you Should Never Go Without this Summer

Published

on

Summer is finally here and I’ll be damned if I say I’m not excited to leave Cairo, tan, wakeup by the sea and just enjoy the hell out of the season! But in order to have the best summer experience, I never walk around without my backpack/Tote bag packed with my summer necessities and by necessities, I mean gadgets that your friends, skin and body will crown you as the summer Queen/King for. So, let’s ace this summer, shall we?

1. Sunscreen

I cannot stress this point enough! It doesn’t matter if you’re dark skinned, or if you believe that you never get sunburned; sunscreen shouldn’t be a choice during summertime, it should be a rule. Sunscreen helps limit excessive UV (ultraviolet rays) exposure, which helps reduce the risk of getting skin cancer. This is how serious the issue is.

2. SPF lip balm

People forget to protect their lips, but skin cancer in this area can be particularly dangerous, which is why everyone should use lip balm with SPF. Do not underestimate the damaging power of UV rays.

3. Water Bottle

We all love our malibus and mojitos but it’s important to stay hydrated. Normal plastic bottles are so outdated and can easily get mixed up with someone else’s water bottle. So, instead buy yourself a cool looking water bottle that’ll always remind you to hydrate.

4. Coconut Oil

Why coconut oil? Coconut oil can be used on your hair to keep it moisturized and shiny, on your skin to keep it hydrated and glowing, on your face as a non-greasy moisturizer, around your eyes as a wrinkle remover, as natural makeup remover, as a homemade tooth paste when mixed with baking soda, as lip balm and as natural deodorant. Yes, child, coconut oil is indeed miraculous.

5. Mini Speakers

So that when the main speakers’ battery’s dead, your heroic ass saves the day by pulling your mini speakers out of your bag, plug it in and continue chillin’ without anything killing your vibe. Just remember to always keep it charged.

6. Deodorant

Summer= sweat, and who wants stinky armpits in the summer? no one! Who wants the cute stranger to walk away in the middle of the conversation to avoid passing out because of how you smell? NO ONE.

7. Shades

Maybe you don’t like shades, maybe you don’t think you look nice in them but sunglasses are so damn important in the summer! They keep you from squinting, which save you from getting wrinkles. Plus, they protect your eyes from harmful sun rays. Just make sure to buy shades that block UV rays and you’re good to go, champ!
