Your Fastest Way To Fake A Glow

What can you do with 10 minutes? Make a cuppa and a slice of toast before heading into the office? Sure. Develop a golden tan to fake a healthy glow? Not so much. Or at least that’s what we thought. Until we discovered a new wonder product from Vita Liberata! Read on to find out how to get the glow in just 10 minutes…


Getting a little colour can often take up a large chunk of time that most of us don’t have. Naturally, this doesn’t bode well when you’ve forgotten about the summer wedding reception you’re heading to tomorrow. Or when you’ve pulled on your first skirt of the season – and your legs haven’t seen the sunshine since winter.

Luckily, the Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan is an innovative new body product. No surprises from the name, but this gradual tanner only needs to be left on for 10 minutes before you can hop in the shower – leaving it to develop into a glowing tan while you go about your day. Unlike more traditional tanning products, there’s no risk of the colour transferring onto your clothes or your bed sheets either!

Even better? Not only does it deliver head-to-toe radiance but it’s packed with organic botanicals like neroli and rosehip oil – so your skin will be left deeply nourishing and hydrated. Bonus: anti-ageing peptides help to promote natural collagen production for smooth, plump, skin.

So, how does it work? Apply it generously to your skin like you would your usual body lotion. Use long, circular motions to massage it in. The caramel colour will make sure you don’t miss any patches! Top tip: give your hands a good wash afterwards so you don’t have any tell-tale streaks on your palm. It takes just 10 minutes for the lotion to activate (but leave for up to 20 if you’re after a deeper colour) then shower off using water only. Pat dry and watch your natural tan develop over the next 4 – 6 hours. Gamechanger.
