When the sun decides to come out in the UK, us gals are filled with dread at the pastiness of our legs, the blue tinge on our arms and almost transparency of our face. But ladies, it's time to get our limbs out and embrace the summer! Here are three of my favourite tanning products for beautifully bronzed skin.
Palmers Natural Bronze Body Lotion - My all time hero when it comes to gradual tan. Goes on with ease and smells divine (not a biscuit-y smell in sight!). This product is a rather quick fix as gradual tanners go, one layer of this before bed and you wake up with a two-weeks-in-the-Seychelles look about you! About £5 from Feelunique
Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanner for Face - This product adds a subtle glow to the complexion which is ideal for those days wen we don't want/can't be bothered/forgot to wear makeup. Don't expect a dramatic change with just one use but it does build up to a beautiful bronzed - makeup? What makeup? look. Everybody and their goldfish will be jealous! £18 from Boots
St Tropez Instant Glow Body Lotion - Now for those spontaneous nights out (of which I have many ...) there is a need for a slap on fake tan. As appealing as it sounds, this sun-in-a-bottle product is a God send. Easy to apply WITH A TANNING GLOVE - lets not join the Orange Hands Brigade if we can help it! - and gives a lovely golden look to the skin which can be washed off in the morning. Shame we can't say the same for that unusual headache that crops up around the same time ... Around £10 from Feelunique
Hope this post helps you on your way to the Bronzed Goddess look this Summer!
