Some might call it vanity (huh!) but Vecchiojo knows there's more to being fast than simply going quicker… you need to look quick too, particularly in the leg department. Everyone knows that fast legs are honey brown coloured legs and very definitely not white.
So with the season fast approaching it's time to get the self tanning lotion out, but which one? Jo is here to help guiding you through his meticulous leg prep regime and testing out the latest self tanning lotions – one on each leg (hope they don't clash afterwards – ed).
Follow his legs in the coming weeks as they go from marble white towards a honey-gold destination and possibly onwwards towards tawny or mahogony perhaps, but at no time going anywhere near orange.
More on Jo's scary leg experiment.
