As the sun fails to make any appearances, during the autumn/winter season our complexions tend to be a little lack-lustre; pale and pallid, the glow we all take on during the summer months can seem like a distant memory. But it doesn’t have to be that way gentleman- why not make self tanner a part of your grooming regime? When done carefully and correctly, bronzing up can help your skin look generally healthier and bring back that missing radiance- and it’s certainly a more affordable option than jetting off to catch some rays. Below are are a selection of the best tanning products out there.
Tom Ford Beauty Bronzing Gel
Tan whilst taking care of your skin with Tom Ford’s Bronzing Gel. The water-based formula is tinted to give you an instantly sun-kissed appearance, but is also infused with nutrient-rich ingredients to provide anti-ageing and antioxidant benefits too.
St Tropez Gradual Tan
Going from ghostly to golden overnight may raise a few eyebrows, so opt for St Tropez’s Gradual Tan moisturiser which bronzes progressively. Made with soothing aloe vera and vitamin E, this product combines self-tanning properties with quality skin care, so can be used everyday.
Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster
If you’re not ready to take the plunge into the realm of self-tanning quite yet, go for this clever creation from Clarins. A more subtle approach to going bronze, simply adding 1-3 drops of this to your daily facial moisturiser will promote radiance and a golden glow.
Origins Faux Glow
A pitfall of self-tanning products is often their less than desirable scent, but Origins’ Faux Glow face formula doesn’t compromise on fragrance. Created with a wonderful aroma of peppermint, rosemary and orange, this moisturiser gives a natural colour and leaves you smelling fantastic.
Clinique Face Tinted Lotion
Clinique’s Face Tinted Lotion gives an immediate golden glow and helps you avoid a major tanning faux-pas: streaks. The slightly coloured formula shows where it goes, thus ensuring you can have the smoothest application possible.
