The best self tans to try this spring
You might be sick of us banging on about it, but a faux glow is the only way to go this summer. With our skin cancer rates steadily increasing, it’s more important than ever to keep sun smart, all year round, but even more so when we hit the warmers months when more of our bodies are exposed to the sun.

Just like anything, self-tan has continued to refine and improve on textures, scents and formulations and these are no exception. From tanning drops to colourless gels, we have you covered (quite literally) for the warmer months ahead.
This colour-correcting tanning water is one of the most exciting launches to come onto the scene. Simply mist onto your skin and allow 4-6 hours to let the formula develop. Choose between light, medium and dark depending on your skins natural tone.

For those who like to sleep in their tan while it develops, this colourless gel will be a godsend. It’s bursting with aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, cucumber and algae extract to hydrate and soothe the skin all the while giving it a hint of tint.
If you’re short on time, these tanning towelettes which give you colour in as little as 3 hours, will be a saviour. Quick-drying and with the ability to build-up to the colour you’re after, these wipes also work on the texture and tone of the skin to help dial back signs of ageing.
Tanning your face helps to make your foundation blend better and will instantly make your skin feel more radiant. This mist contains a natural complex which feels light on the skin as well as offering antioxidant properties thanks to the inclusion of hibiscus flower and green mandarin.
Customise your tan with the help of these drops designed to be added into your daily primer, moisturiser or face oil. They are light and effortless to use and allow you to create the perfect tan for your complexion.
Designed to give you one of the most flawless tans, this new launch from Bondi Sands works to give a seamless, streak-free tan which smells like summer and blends beautifully on the skin.
