Your summer glow may be starting to fade, but there are plenty of ways to give your skin an instant boost without booking an autumn break in St Tropez…
Start with Soap & Glory Glow Job, £7.99. Squeeze a blob onto fingertips then rub hands together to release colour from micro-bronzer beads and apply over the entire face as a daily moisturiser with a hint of tan that takes away the deathly paleness of the traditional British complexion. Makes you look instantly healthier. Available from larger Boots and Harvey Nichols.
Then apply Fresh Twilight Freshface Glow, £24, a sheer illuminating cream that gives skin a pearl-like sheen that catches the light - it was developed to capture the effect of silvery moonlight!. Can be worn on its own to bring out skin’s natural radiance, but it really shines through from beneath foundation, too. Available from Fresh London - 0207 486 4100 - or www.fresh.com.
Too Faced Pure Bronze, £20, a mineral powder containing crushed freshwater pearls, swept over the top – or just used on cheekbones, the chin and across the browbone – gives skin a gorgeous golden-bronzed effect with so much iridescence, it practically glistens. Available from larger Boots, House of Fraser and Debenhams.
Finish with The Body Shop Blush Trio in Cool Dusk, £12.50, a compact containing three segments of different shades that can be swirled together with a brush to create a bright pink blush with lots of highlighter to pick up the light, too. It looks particularly glowing on black skin.
