Holidays have been a no-go for almost a year – so cheat your way to a sun-kissed look with these innovative tanning buys…



When it comes to self-tanning, prep is key. With crushed walnut shells, Skinny Tan’s primer scrub shifts dry skin, leaving it soft and smooth pre-tan. Isle of Paradise’s Prep It spray balances skin’s pH levels, creating a perfect base and preventing streaks. Apply to dry patches including elbows and knees.

A top choice for novices, gradual tans allow you to build colour for a naturalloo­king finish. Ideal for those with an uneven skin tone, Nivea’s firming lotion contains coenzyme Q10 for a radiant look. Sienna X’s tanning face drops contain anti-pollution ingredient­s, and can be mixed with moisturise­r to build a desirable glow.


When applying face tan always use products designed for this area. James Read’s latest launch builds a glowing complexion with the skincare benefits of brightenin­g vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Or try Bondi Sands, a clear fragrance-free mist that offers a hydrating hit of gradual colour that won’t clog up pores.


Short on time? Nip+Fab’s mousse gives a streak-free tan in just one hour. Simply apply, wait for it to develop, then rinse. Alternativ­ely, Tanologist’s lotion needs no developmen­t time, and contains lightrefle­cting particles for a shimmery finish. And despite being sweat-proof, it will still wash off in the shower once you’re done.


For a pro-looking tan and stain-free hands, a mitt is a must. Bronzie’s handy back and body mitt is ideal for covering hard-to-reach areas and will ensure an even applicatio­n. When you want to wash off your tan, St.Tropez’s remover mousse is a lifesaver. Lather the product on to skin, wait for two minutes, then rinse off in the shower.
