As the rate of melanoma cases skyrockets, any healthier alternative to tanning is a welcome development. And our favourite this season is from French beauty brand Clarins. It’s Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster is a brilliant new product that gives your complexion a healthy glow in a single step. Just add three drops of the product to your regular moisturizer, mix and apply to your face. Finish by washing your hands. You can adjust the depth of the tan effect in the coming days by either increasing or decreasing the number of drops you use. It’s foolproof. And safe.

Clarins researchers carefully studied very precise quantities of natural DHA and Erythrulose to create a natural-looking tan. It gives fair complexions a pretty sun-kissed glow and warms deeper complexions in just a few hours. The active ingredients interact with the amino acids in the corneal layer of the skin to activate the colour.  Just be careful to wear sunscreen as well. The Glow Booster doesn’t protect against UVA and UVB rays. It’s available at Clarins counters now.
