The weather has really picked up over the last few weeks here in the UK. The mornings have become much lighter and the evenings are lasting a lot longer, which has really made it feel as though summer is on its way. The sun has also been shinning and I have found myself reaching for float-y lightweight materials, strappy tops and sandals. This has also meant that I have had a lot more skin on show and so I have also been reaching for all the fake tan products I can get my hands on!  

There are so many different types of fake tan on the market and it can be a bit of a minefield trying to decide which one would work the best and for when. I have been using the Sun Shimmer range from Rimmel London over the past couple of weeks to keep my natural tan topped up. They offer a few different types of fake tan to suit a range of preferences. 

I have loved using their Self Tan Mousse in Light. This stuff is super easy to apply, it dries within two minutes and develops within an hour, lasting for up to seven days. It is extremely lightweight and leaves the skin looking golden and streak free. I caught a bit of a tan whilst in America a few weeks ago and this product has been fantastic at maintaining my natural glow. 

Rimmel also have a Self Tan Lotion as a part of their Sun Shimmer range, which is formulated with Chia Oil and leaves the skin looking naturally bronzed and hydrated. They also have an Instant Tan in the collection and this can be used on both the body and the face. Although it has a ‘wash off’ formula, it is water resistant and will last for up to twenty-four hours. 

As with most fake tan products, it is always best to apply the Rimmel Sun Shimmer tan onto clean, exfoliated skin. I like to dry brush my entire body, especially the elbows, knees and ankles, before jumping in the shower. I then feel prepped and ready to apply the fake tan, to provide the most natural and bronzed looking finish.
