Tired of trying to get the perfect tan? What with the latest news that tanning beds are in fact harmful to the skin. Working on a fake tan is the only remedy. Help is on your way from relatively close quarters. Mariah Carey is letting out the secret of her luscious tan. She is working with her tanning assistant, who is from the Portofino Sun Center and Spa in Beverly Hills, developing a new fake tan line that is made with 24-karat gold dust. It sounds like it might be a little over-the-top for anyone who isn’t spending a lot of time on stage, but it will probably be a hit with those who really like to look bronzed. Or gilded. The singer is insisting she is beautifully bronzed on every night on her current ‘Emancipation of Mimi’ tour and has hired a personal tanning assistant, Jenny Phillips, to spay her before going on stage. Mariah and Jenny, of Beverly Hills’ exclusive Portofino Sun Center and Spa, have now teamed up to create an extravagant new fake tan made with real gold.
Mariah’s representative said: “She is on tour with Mariah and they are developing an exclusive line of bronzer containing real 24-karat gold dust.” The glitter and shine away.
