Tanning your face can be tricky to get right and there’s plenty of scope for giving away your secret
So, make sure you've exfoliated the day before and moisturised thoroughly. Pop a little Vaseline on eyebrows and around the hairline to prevent tell-tale marks. And remember to exfoliate regularly to ensure the tan fades evenly.
We tried and tested a range of tanners; starting with good-value gradual moisturisers like Simple’s Skin + Sun-kissed, building up to products that will deliver a deeper glow such as Lancome’s face gel.
