The Best Fake Tans For A Bronze Summer Skin Glow!

Dec 10, 2021by Gabby - F&F

Summer is officially here — and our excitement to walk the streets looking like bronze goddesses is an understatement! The only problem is, we've been cooped up in our homes for a little too long. The result? Not a lot of sun exposure.

Whilst you wait for that sun-kissed glow to sink into your skin, why not accept a helping hand from our favourite fake tan brands.

Whether you're after a natural look, extra glow or if you're like me and no matter how much sun you get, your skin has nothing to show for it —  you can achieve your ultimate summer tan look, with Fake Tan

Eco Tan's range of tanning products are organic, cruelty free and free of nasties. Why? So that you can still have a tan without the downsides of toxic chemicals. 

If you're after a natural summer glow, we recommend trying the Invisible Tan. Our team finds this product really easy to use and we notice a huge change in colour just overnight, making getting out of bed exciting!

Eco Tan Cacao Tanning Mousse is another goodie! This is super handy for all you on-the-go people because it is an express tan and you can wash it off after just 1 hour and get a nice coffee finish. If you're after a deeper tan though, you can achieve that look after 4 hours. Finish off your look with some Face Tan Water for a natural glow.

Our tips for a deeper tan is applying a double coat of fake tan. We make sure to soak it in for as long as we can before washing and find that the best results are when we apply the tan before bed and wake up in the morning to a beautiful glow. Most importantly, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly after application, to avoid tanned palms and giving away your secret. Shop our gorgeous range of Fake Tans here.
