    so ever since i found out i was pregnant i've had to stop my spray tans. i miss them so much, you never catch me looking pale! i always used to have my tan topped every two weeks!
    anyway so im wondering, is a tanning lotion okay? like the ones where over a couple of days of using it you get that summery tan glow? would that be okay? :) xx

    I use the dove daily moisturiser and it gives a lovely gradual tan. Im the same i hate looking pale but this is real nice and cheap too and it builds up the more u use! Although if u want to use an instant one then im sure they r safe! Its the sprays which are not as safe because of the fumes. Xx

    I asked my midwife and she said its perfectly fine - just make sure you tell the company before hand.

    I've had one done now and absolutely fine :)

    I'm the same though, hate being pale and was always on the sunbeds before... im constantly in my trusty st moriz tan now haha.

    I still have spray tans, dye my hair, get my nails done, get my waxing done! You can't put your life on hold. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I've stopped sunbeds & have to wait to get my semi perm brows done so its not as if I'm being reckless ......but don't stop looking after yourself Hun, you need to feel good to be happy & happy mum = happy baby x
