Best Tanning Specialist

Gone are the days when tan meant tangerine. An overall mahogany mask has (thankfully) been replaced by a healthy warmth from within. Don’t expect muddy ankles, patchy knees or a waft of biscuit when tended to by this set. We’ve heard they can even enhance muscle definition and trim tummies with some sleuth shading! Cork, Dublin and Kildare-based, the nominees for Best Tanning Specialist are ?

Sharon Berns, Body Connection Spa
