We might not have bright, sunny and warm days like our first lockdown and if you’re missing out on your summer sun-kissed complexion, face tan is here for you.

The idea of fake tanning can sometimes be a huge effort that requires energy and mess but tans specifically for face are quick, easy and simple.

If you’re anything like me and taking a bit of a break from makeup (mainly because I don’t want to waste my €30 bottle of foundation on a trip to the supermarket) a tiny bit of face tan will even out your skin tone, feel extremely lightweight without clogging pores and give a natural healthy glow.

Sosu Wonder Water

Sosu tanning prodcuts have really made their mark in the world for being affordable and incredable. The wonder water gives a natural glow and you can’t feel the product sitting on your skin. It fades gradually over a few days as you go about your daily skincare routine.

How to: Spray all over face and neck then buff the product in with a big fluffy brush to evenly dispurse. Leave to develop for 4-6 hours.

With three shades to pick from and each shade having colour correcting actives like pigments to counteract either redness, blue undertones or orange tones you can be sure to achieve the glow you desire. These drops are easy to customise because the more you use the deeper the results will be.

How to: Add 2-12 drops to your moisturiser, mix and then apply to face and neck. Wash your hands after and leave to develop for 4-6 hours.

This lightweight serum like texture goes a long way on application. It hydrates your skin containing hyaluronic acid and vitamin E so not only will it leave you looking radiant and bronzed it will actually nourish and benefit your skin.
