Fake tan is the best way to get a gorgeous golden glow even when the sun’s not shining. But it can be a nightmare to get right – there’s the much-feared streaky legs, the biscuit-y smell and the orange shade that nobody wants to accidentally end up with. Basically, it’s a beauty minefield.

Luckily, there’s tonnes of amazing fake tan products for your face and body on the high street to save you paying top dollar for a professional spray tan. However, even we admit it can all get a little confusing – do you opt for a traditional St Tropez or Fake Bake mousse, pick up a bottle of Xen Tan or get involved with the St Moriz?!
