We all know that your skin doesn’t need to be on the paler end of the spectrum to benefit from a bit of self-tanning. As well as enhancing your natural glow, it helps even out skin tone, pep up a dull complexion and disguise blemishes. Overall it just makes you feel that little bit more summery when the weather seems anything but. Here are three we’ve given the gold star...

VITA LIBERATA Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish, £29.95

This product is the dictionary definition of #nofilterneeded. Ideal if you’re not bothered about deepening your skin tone, this wash-off formula instead works wonders on things like discolouration and visible pores on legs, whilst giving ashy winter limbs a glorious golden gleam in the bargain.

NARS Laguna Body Tint, £30

Not only does this contain that all-important SPF to shield skin from those deadly rays, it’s also enriched with nourishing monoi and tamanu oils, ideal if your skin craves moisture and you find other tanning formulas quite drying. Delivering a sun-kissed glow, one whiff of the tropical fragrance will transport you to a beach in Northern Brazil.

St Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Lotion, £10

Formulated to work with and enhance your natural skin tone (rather than leave a generic orange smudge), this gradual body lotion is perfect for self-tanning newbies. Use it every day to build up to a natural looking streak-free glow, and give your skin a good hit of hydration in the process.
