Get the right tan
With the beauty counters overflowing with self-tan products promising a smooth and even finish, there are plenty of ways to get bronzed but not all solutions can hit the right hue.

So, what’s the best way to achieve a natural shade, and avoid the odious orange explosion – and which products take home the golden glow award?

Jog on pasty legs and say hello to the definitive list of self-tanning products for a seamless healthy glow.

Pale pigmentation
If you’ve got a couple of weeks to spare before you parade your pins, use Garnier Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Dry Body Mist, which is perfect build up serum for pale skin. Use once a day after exfoliating for a naturally layered tan.

Natural tan
For an effortless sun-kissed tan that really looks like you’ve busied yourself on the beach, combine a natural build up base with Guerlain Emilio Pucci Météorites Perles d’Azur. These multi-coloured pearls will add a naturally sun-kissed glow to your whole body.

For naturally darker skin tones seeking an all over glow, try St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mist for a delectably subtle spark. Spray on evenly once a day to shimmer and shine.

Face facts
The face is notoriously difficult to nail. Lancôme’s moisturising and quick drying Flash Bronzer is suitable for all skin types for a smouldering glow that say’s ‘no!’ to orange streaks. Use sparingly and be sure to exfoliate well before use. © Cover Media
