Don’t worry if you’ve not caught enough of the warm weather, we’ve got some great fake-tanning secrets to help you get beautifully bronzed[/caption]

Quick, quick, glow: In a hurry? No problem. A one-hour tanning mousse can work magic in no time.

St. Tropez’s Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse is £33 but I also love 1 Hour Tan Dark Mousse by Cocoa Brown, a snip at £7.99 at Superdrug.

Save: £25.01

Top up: For a more natural look, use a gradual tanner. I am a fan of Nivea Q10 Gradual Tan Body Moisturiser Fair to Medium, currently down from £5.99 to £2.99.

It also helps skin look firm and hydrated. What is not to like?

Save: £3

H2-glow: If you prefer to avoid heavy formulas, or find blending a chore, the latest self-tanning waters are proving popular.

Isle Of Paradise Self Tanning Water, £18.95 at BeautyBay, is the brand on every beauty blogger’s list — but you need not fork out to fake it.

Superdrug’s Solait is just £4.95. It takes one to four hours to work and doubles up as a moisturiser.

Save: £14

Wash not to like? If you fancy a quick result, but not commitment to a full-on fake tan, opt for an instant, wash-off option.

I love old faithful Rimmel Sunshimmer Water Resistant Wash Off Instant Tan, £6.99 at — a bargain compared to Benefit’s Zero Tan-lines Body Bronze, £25.50.
