THE application of sun tan lotion should really be recognised as an art form.

You either miss bits resulting in weird tan lines or burnt skin - and that is just us ladies, or you spend the whole day sticking to everything you come across creating one big mess.

Louise Kerr (21), who attends the University of Strathclyde, has come up with the idea of a booth where sun lotion would be sprayed quickly and giving full cover to ensure protection from the rays.
