If you’ve not had chance to go away this summer then you’re going to need the perfect pick-me-up and a quick fix glow. Lavera Sun sensitiv Self-Tanning Lotion (£11.70 for 150ml) is the eco-friendly choice.

Suitable for Vegans and all skin types, the lotion was the first 100 per cent all-natural self tan lotion on the market worldwide.

Putting it to the test I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn’t smell, it doesn’t streak and it gives you a perfect, almost St Tropez look, without the price tag. I am a complete convert. The only problem, being a white liquid, you might be tempted to put it on without latex gloves — don’t! The self-tanning quality is so good, you’ll end up with unsightly orange hands.

There comes a time when a normal hand cream just isn’t enough. And you know you need something hard core when the skin on the back of your hands starts to look thin and shiny. So thank goodness for Orly French Polynesian Tropical Dew Maximum Moisture Hand Butter.

This ultra-rich salve penetrates skin with tamanu oil to promote skin renewal, and, combined with the gorgeous smell of coconut oil, it leaves those not-so-young extra dry hands instantly hydrated and feeling soft.

At £14.99 it doesn’t come cheap but one application lasts for at least four hours even after washing your hands.
