So what’s the solution? The 1940s make-do-and-mend trick of using gravy browning on your arms is way too smelly.
But the alternative – to hit the party season looking pasty and pale – isn’t too appealing either.
Thankfully, we’ve discovered a professional collection of organic tan enhancers, bronzing mousses and body bronzers that offers beautifully bronzed skin all year round – and no dodgy ingredients.
We even love the name – Organic’s!
Available from Club Cleo, the Organic’s Heavenly range features natural ingredients such as organic aloe vera and organic sunflower seed oil.
Green Living tried it out before a big night out recently and it really does work.
We loved it, and it means we can finally use a self-tanning range that includes organic ingredients and avoid the so-white-you-look-blue ‘Irish tan’.
Included in the range is the Organic’s Heavenly Body Bronzing Mist (£19.99) which comes in an aerosol can for whole-body application (perfect for those hard-to-reach areas).
There’s also the Organic’s Heavenly Bronzing Mousse (£19.99) and the Heavenly Tan Enhancer (£19.99), enhanced with a hint of colour.
