It's that most-dreaded time of year when you're preparing to surrender tights and bare your sun-starved flesh for all to balk at. We're all in the same boat - lizard-esque and slightly sickly - which is why we've curated this edit of products to make skin look less ghostly...

Revolutionising the tanning industry, TAN-LUXE's mystifying {The Water} is a magical, spray-on 'water' that's completely clear and infused with natural tanning agents to create a gorgeous, post-holiday glow. You simply spritz, blend and go with no waiting around for your body to 'air dry'. It's the easiest way to look bronzed when you're busy...

A bronzing powder with a difference, Vita Liberata's {Trystal Minerals} lends face (and limbs) an instant and long-lasting glow. Enriched with DHA, this gives a gorgeous sunkissed look while slowly staining (in the best way!) so your tan stays put - even after you've taken the day off. Want to see it in action?

Is it an oil? Is it an SPF? Is it a tanner? Well, it's actually all three. Miraculous as that may seem, Vita Liberata's {Marula Self Tanning Dry Oil SPF 50} marries skin care, sun care and aesthetic benefits to hydrate and protect while leaving your skin enviably honeyed. The most ingenious elixir, it's delectably scented - ideal if you're jetting off somewhere exotic.

Charlotte Tilbury's game-changing {Overnight Bronze and Glow Mask} - before and after, above - boasts a cocktail of replenishing ingredients - conditioning blackcurrant and sunflower seed oils, soothing oat kernel extract and retexturising lactic acid - alongside gradual tanning actives to bestow a kiss of colour. Slather on before bed (it won't stain your pillow) and wake up looking luminous.

And for a tan that actually tackles signs of ageing, TAN-LUXE's {The Face Anti-Age} grants the best of both worlds. These pure, intensive drops can be mixed with your favourite day or night cream, to ensure a streak-free (completely customisable) lustre. Beautifully olive-toned and brimming with free radical-fighting actives, choose from two shades and get your glow on!
