The best type of tan is a faux tan and luckily there are some great products around to give you a healthy glow sans sun.

The Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer is a personal favourite of mine. It’s a self tanning bronzer that gives you a natural-looking tan with no streaks in as little as an hour and is only $20.49.


Natio Instant Bronzer, $21 is also really lovely and one that I use regularly. I also love Sukin’s Sunless Bronzing Gel $24.50
