Golden goddess by night, patchy orange mess by morning – most of us pale folk have a love/hate relationship with fake tan.

And when it comes to removing the stuff, everyone seems to have their own routine, but what really is the best way?

Well, St Tropez’s Jules Heptonstall, has finally given us the answer.

Speaking to Marie Claire, the tanning expert explained that the key to fake tan removal is to refrain from scrubbing.

"Don’t panic scrub. You’ll end up taking the tan off in patches and it’ll become a snowballing effect."

Jules recommended using a body polish with some massage oil instead. (We’re guessing baby oil would also do the same job.)

Or, you could take a dip in your local swimming pool.

Apparently, ‘‘The chlorine will break down the tan. In the showers afterwards, take those exfoliating gloves and work in circular motions. Steam rooms and saunas will soften the tan, too.’’

Just looking to remove that orange hue from your hands and feet? According to Jules, a paste made using two tablespoons of baking soda and a splash of water will do the trick.

Simply rub the mixture all over the area, leave for a few minutes before rinsing, and voilà, no one will ever know!

If like us you completely refuse to accept that the summer is over, this week’s Beauty Product of The Week will bring a smile to your not-so-sun kissed face. The cold season has appeared from nowhere it seems, and us summer-lovers are dreading the effects it might have on our complexion.

We need a saviour- something that will help us keep our glow as the days get short and sunny afternoons seem like a distant memory. This is where Bondi Sands comes in. With their brand-new range of ‘GLO’ products, you can hang on to your summer glow this autumn.

Buff across the collarbone, cheekbones, eyelids and beyond, to enhance your skin’s natural radiance.  Alternatively, mix with foundation to customise your glow and add a delicate sheen to your skin.

GLO GLOSS FINISHING GLOW: Worn on top of GLO Shimmer, GLO Matte or alone, GLO gloss finishing glow delivers both colour and texture to create a bronzed dewy look. A definite beauty bag essential, the reflective high-shine formula highlights your face and body, adorning your skin with radiance.
