The Best Fake Tans to Keep You Bronzed All Winter
Without the glorious summer sun, it's easy to become Snow White in the winter months. If you're like us and pride yourself on a good tan, here are some of the best fake tans to keep you looking bronzed through Christmas dinner and beyond.
Natural colour is the name of the game for Tan Organic, who impart a healthy glow and citrus fragrance that feels wholly sun-given, as well as non-oily. What’s more, it lasts for four days, meaning that you neither have to worry about irritating reapplications nor committing to successive weeks of patchy colour.
Believe it or not, tanning is much easier to achieve whilst you sleep. Instead of fake tanning during the day, worrying about smudges and smearing, you can now go to sleep looking pale and wake up to a glistening brown glow. (Don't forget to check out our guide to fake tan for more tips!)
Balance Me’s Gradual Tanning Drops are a superbly nifty way of locking-in your winter-time tan. Not only are they streak- and odour-free, they also bring the key antioxidant vitamin E together with calming aloe vera to leave complexions as healthy as they are gorgeously bronzed.
Getting a tan isn't as simple as just splashing some fake tan on your skin and hoping for the best. It's usually worth checking what shade best complements your skin tone, and for some that means going fairly dark. TAN-LUXE The Face Illuminating Self-Tan Drops Medium/Dark provides a subtle dark tone, usually highlighted best in white clothing.
In just a couple of hours, this Skinny Tan self-tanner imparts a gloriously golden tan. Made from 95% naturally-derived ingredients, the mousse is exceptionally long-lasting, delivering showstopping colour for up to 14 days. And that’s not streaky, orange colour either, but rather a healthy, genuine-looking finish touched off with a pleasant coconut scent.
For a subtle tan you can control, try out the must-have Isle of Paradise products. Simply add a couple of drops of this to your favourite moisturiser and watch as a natural sun-kissed glow starts to develop. And don't worry, there's no classic biscuit scent!
Considering the vibrancy and radiance available within a single bottle, there's really no reason for the tan-lovers among us to miss out. So pick your favourite formula, slide on your mitt and get tanning!
