Vera Sidika trended this entire week after she stepped out looking all darker than her usual skin. We all know that she lightened her skin some years back.
Well, this was meant to introduce Vera’s new song into the market. The song Mimi talks about embracing people no matter what their colour is.
Anyhow, this is how Vera got fans confused about whether she is now dark on not. She probably bought one of those expensive tanning sprays that go for about Ksh 4,000 to Ksh 13,200.
One of which is a Bondi Sands – Self Tanning Mist it goes for Ksh 13,200.
According to experts once you spray the tan on, it can last from the base coat should last four or five days and, with the extra treatment, seven or eight days before it fades.
You can also shower after 6 hours of application.
For those who were asking her if her ivory coloured jumpsuit was going to end up with splotches of the spray tan, here is your answer. Most of the tanning sprays dry instantly.
It is designed to deepen after four hours, and an in-built booster ingredient gives even more depth to the tan after 12 hours.
The solution used contains deionised water, alcohol, glycerine and aloe, and the gun creates an ultra-fine mist with a wide coverage which leaves the skin looking and feeling silky.
The active ingredient is DHA (used in all fake tans), but it is formulated not to give off its tell-tale smell.
The tanning effect is produced by the DHA causing a chemical reaction with amino acids in the top layer of skin.
Usually, it is applied with the woman wearing only knickers but, if there are any marks, Fantasy Tan washes out of cotton easily, though it will stain light-coloured nylon.
It’s recommended that you should exfoliate and moisturise the night before treatment, otherwise it does not last as long as dead cells at the top of the skin will shed more quickly.
After a week or so, get used to seeing Vera Sidika in her usual lightened skin. She tanned her skin to shoot the music video of her latest single, Mimi.
When Vera started the back to black post, it got tongues wagging like crazy.
“NEVER BE DEFINED BY YOUR PAST …IT WAS JUST A LESSON, NOT A LIFE SENTENCE.
FEELS GOOD TO BE BACK!!! 💃🏿💃🏿💃🏿
