May marks Skin Cancer Awareness Month and here at Bellamianta, we are ALL about safe tanning! With this in mind, this blog post is dedicated to sharing why it’s always better to fake it than bake. Plus, whatever type of holiday you’ve booked this summer, we have the perfect tan to match!
Skin cancer is still one of the most common forms of cancer in the UK, with rates continuing to rise. According to The British Skin Foundation, at least 100,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, with the disease killing over 2,500 people in the UK annually, which equates to 7 people everyday.
We know our Bellababes take their skincare very seriously, which is why our advice is always to fake it rather than baking in the sun! When it comes to taking action against preventing skin cancer, we recommend the following:
- Always wear SPF – even on a cloudy day in the UK, it is possible to get sunburnt
- Sunbeds are a no-no! Avoid these at all costs
- Seek the shade, especially between 10am and 4pm
- Avoid getting sunburnt
- Pay attention to your skin for changes
While we all long for a gorgeous golden glow, the truth is that it’s better, safer and wiser to fake it! And thanks to our collection of tans, with something for every tanning need, not to mention a colour and fade so natural you’d swear it’s real, no one will be able to tell the difference anyway.
Summer is just a matter of weeks away and if you’re lucky enough to be jetting off to warmer climes, thanks to our collection of tans, you don’t have to compromise. Enjoy a flawless, natural tan, all day, everyday without spending hours tied to a sun lounger, meaning you have plenty of time for the important stuff, like taking in the sights of a new city or shopping with friends.
Whether a city break is calling, a staycation sounds like a dream or a week in the sun is beckoning, wherever this summer takes you, we have the a tan for every scenario.
Slay it on your staycation

If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off to warmer climes, don’t be a slave to your sun lounger… fake it instead. Before you go, apply our Crystal Clear Rapid Self Tanning Tinted Mousse. Wash off after 2 hours for a light tan, 3 hours for medium or 6-hours or more for the darkest result.
Finally, no matter where this summer takes you, make our brand new Flawless Filter Body Makeup your secret tanning weapon. Available in medium and dark, this clever little number is a flawless filter wash off body and face makeup to blur imperfections.
So this summer, thanks to our collection of natural tans, whatever scenario you are facing, it’s always better to fake it than bake. Stay safe!
