Everyone likes the golden, lightly tanned, let me rephrase, the healthy look, that a tan gives you. Naturally.
The safest tan, however, is a fake one. Here's a round up of the best fake tans for skin which is shy of a tan and products which are more suited to enhancing a naturally golden skin tone.
For those who envy the camouflage the fake-tanners get but would rather remain the same colour, then try Prtty Peaushun in plain. This is great for pale skintones. Prtty Peaushun, £18.50, Beauty Mart.
For those who like to deepen what nature gave them, but hate smelling of biscuits, there’s a range by NKD SKN. The wash-off formula means you don’t have to commit to the colour. Comes in medium and dark tones. NKD SKN Matte Wash Off Instant Tan, £8.50.
Benefit’s Take A Picture body balm is perfect for olive skin. The formulation adds a golden-pink tone and smells amazing. The applicator puff is large enough to make coverage speedy. Take A Picture… It Lasts Longer, £23.50, Benefit.
For those with skin that’s neither very pale or very dark, Nars Body Glow comes highly recommended. The glinting lotion is full of coconut and Tahitian gardenia, so it already smells like a holiday. Body Glow, £44, Nars.
