Spring is finally here, meaning its time to banish your winter coat to the back of your wardrobe and dust off your skirts, shorts and T-shirts.
It's also that time of year when our thoughts turn to tanning and, if you're not jetting off on an exotic holiday, a gradual self-tan is just the ticket for a natural looking golden glow.
Here stylist.co.uk have rounded up the five best gradual tans, from multi-tasking products to those that smell simply amazing.
Melvita's ProSun Gradual Self-Tanning Cream
Melvita's ProSun Gradual Self-Tanning Cream is a very clever product. Firstly it contains no DHA, which can often lead to uneven coverage and the traditional biscuit smell of fake tan. Secondly, it is enriched with Erythrulose, a revolutionary new bronzing agent that gives a beautiful, streak-free tan that you can build up over time. A true spring tan essential.

Enriched with cocoa seed butter and sweet almond oil, Cheeky's Turn Me On Gradual Tan not only moisturises skin but also leaves it smelling divine. Smooth it over your skin in the mornings or at night for a gradual golden glow.
