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 An overall mahogany mask has (thankfully) been replaced by a healthy warmth from within.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

Gemma McBride, Revive

Set in leafy Dublin 6, Gemma at Revive is the queen of chroma customisation. She’ll advise you on what suits your complexion best before turning your skin a shade of summer. Pale, Irish ruddiness no more, you’ll hear steel drums every time you catch your reflection.

Sinead Buckley, Vedas Beauty
