With summer comes a multitude of increases: Sunshine, day light, and, well, skin exposure.

Yes, now is the time where those not blessed with a natural sun-kissed glow will rub, spray and scrub their skin regularly over the summer months as they vie for the perfect tan.

But before you start thinking horrible smells, tangerine colour and obvious-from-a-mile-away streaks, there are tanners that are swifter, sheerer and better than ever.

They work overnight or in mere hours, last for weeks, protect with sunscreen and smell just as good as regular lotions. Use our handy guide to find the best tan for you, so you don't end up having an unfortunate fake tan fail like the A-listers in the video above!
