“It took me five years of age to give up on those two things,” she added.
Lauren admits she knew she was too pale, but during the pandemic she decided to give up fake tans for good.
However, beauty professionals eventually embraced her white skin and quickly noticed its benefits.
“I’m very fair, so I’m going to keep religiously painting it on my body and face for years,” she recalls.
“The ingredients are horrible and ruin my skin. My skin is glowing orange, my skin is dehydrated, dry and oily, and the fine lines on my face are getting worse.”
But since removing it, she has noticed that her skin is much more radiant, hydrated, and free of fine lines.
Lauren also felt it was important to look at all the ingredients in skincare to find out which ones really work for your skin.
