It’s summer (yes, really) the shops are stocked with floaty dresses and strappy sandals, the sun is finally coming out to play (albeit sporadically) and there’s a seasonal surge in fake tan sales. Why? Because after months of hibernation we’re finally starting to show some skin and want a little (safe) help.
Here are ELLE’s 10 favourite fake tans that will give you post-holiday skin without having to worry about UV damage.
Your extra tools:
A tanning mitt for easy application; we love James Read Tanning Mitt, £6.50.
Plenty of moisturiser to prolong your tan; we love Jergens Original Beauty Lotion, £3.49.
When you apply this toffee-coloured gel it gives skin an instant glow; leave it on for four hours and this glow will develop into a rich sun-kissed tan which holds its colour even after showering.
Moisturise daily and it’ll last the distance without going patchy.
