Victoria Beckham on ditching the fake tan

Looking orange is just a 'bit footballer's wife,' says Victoria Beckham, who has decided to ditch the self tan and embrace her natural colour.
"Being overly tanned is very ageing and, dare I say it, a bit footballer's wife. Embrace your natural colour!" said Victoria Beckham this week in an interview with Hello! Magazine , sparking off the fake tan backlash.
But now, "turning orange is definitely a look from my past," confessed Beckham, who between helping her four children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and 19-month-old Harper get ready every morning, admitted she has had to pair back her beauty regime as she can't afford time in front of the mirror anymore. Even around the breakfast table, "I'm just nibbling while giving the kids all their breakfasts. And while that's all happening, they'll have a spelling test of a times table test," she said.
Her pale and interesting beauty regime now starts with a dollop of €15 body cream by Weleda , and ends on a slick of moderately priced €18 lip gloss from Stila , whose pout-plumping pens Victoria loves because she says "they smell and taste nice."
And as Beckham says, it's just a little bit more "trendier to go au naturel." We couldn't agree more: it's now posh to be pale.
