BEAUTY: Top 5 Face Tanners!

In the midst of a British summer (which has been distinctly lacking in sun!), it’s all too tempting to run outside the minute it does appear and (excuse the 90’s phrasing) get our tan on! But ever since writing a piece on skin damage earlier this year I am reluctant to expose my face to the sun without protecting it with factor 50. So, how do you get a summer glow when you’re wary of the little sun we do get? Fake it of course, with one of our top 5 face tanners….

Lancome Flash Bronzer, Self-Tanning Gel for Face, FashionBite

Lancome Flash Bronzer, Self-Tanning Gel for Face

Lancome Flash Bronzer (£23) is a fast drying gel that begins developing in an hour. Great for a quick summer glow, flash bronzer does not require days of build up for a noticeable effect.  It’s a little more expensive than some but use a pea sized drop at a time and it should see you through the colder months.

Lavera Organic Calendula Summer Glow, FashionBite

Lavera Organic Calendula Summer Glow Facial Moisturiser

We love Lavera Faces Calendula Summer Glow, 30ml (£10.48) which uses self-tanning agents from natural sugar and wheat, meaning it smells sweeter than any fake tan we’ve ever come across, plus when you tell people your glow is natural you’re sort of telling the truth. Use instead of your daily moisturiser for nourished, sun-kissed skin.

Olay Complete Everyday Sunshine, FashionBite

Olay Complete Everyday Sunshine

When it comes to safe face tanning Olay have it covered. Olay Complete Care Everyday Sunshine Face Fluid – Light 50ml (£7.99) contains sunless tanner, UVA and UVB  SPF15 and vitamin E meaning it gives colour, protection and even fights the ageing effects of the sun!  Use this muti-tasker daily for skin that looks as glowing and healthy as it feels.

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning for Face & Decollete, FashionBite

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning for Face & Decollete

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning for Face and Décolleté (£17.50) is the luxurious approach to facial tanning. Apply this milky lotion using a cotton pad for an even, natural-looking colour that is great for any skin-tone.

St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Face, FashionBite

St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Face

If all else fails, ask the experts. St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan (£14.30) for the face comes in two shades St Tropez Everyday Everyday Gradual Tan Face (Light/Medium) 50ml and St Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Face Medium to Dark 50ml to ensure a natural colour. The effects are more noticeable than some other gradual tans so use a little every day to build up the colour you want then use every other day to maintain.

Happy tanning!
