As much as we like the idea of laying by a pool in a barely there speedo, being handed Mojitos on the hour every hour by an oiled up man also in a speedo (roll with it), there are downsides to ‘baking’ in the sun.

But alas, your pasty ass has got to get out of the house sometime, so do it safely with a high SPF.

Faking it is definitely the way to go health-wise and when applied correctly can look perfectly natural, the only problem can be the smell.

No-one wants to smell like a pack of burnt biscuits (unless you’re into that) and say sayonara to your white sheets, because they will be no more.

However it is a great quick fix for those of you that need a glow instantly.
