In a country like Australia, where the sun is a prominent feature of our everyday lifestyle, there is a certain assumption that everybody must be tan because of the scorching, sunny weather.
While this is in fact not the case, girls seem to feel the need to fit in and sport a fake tan during the summer season. More often than not, these tans end up streaking, therefore looking blotchy and fake, and in fact not so bronzed and natural like the labeling on the bottle suggests.
This is just one of the many attributes that make Australia the way it is, and binds us a community and also as a country.
