Crisping your skin on a sunbed or else shivering in paper knickers while a stranger sprays you orange isn’t for everyone.
But yet law (or lore) dictates other holidaymakers will be scrutinizing your skin like a treasure map; so spruce it up like a tattered old beach kaftan we must.
Luckily, there is a far more adorable way to get your summer glow this year, and you can drop it in your basket during your next Superdrug run.
Suitable for vegans – and with no artificial flavourings – these chewy little helpers will shine you up from the inside like a glorious bronzed ornament.
Developed by Company UTAN & Tone, Tan Gummies should be sucked until dissolved or else chewed and swallowed. With a delectably juicy raspberry flavour, this part shouldn’t be too taxing.

Tan fans are advised to take two bears a day for around two to three weeks before they plan taking their bods poolside.
Once you have reached your dream shade – a dilemma if ever there was one – you should begin to reduce your daily bear intake.
Right, here’s the science-y bit according to Superdrug:
Tan Gummies® allow potent actives to be held in the buccal cavity for a considerable time, resulting in ‘direct absorption’ through the membranes in the cheek walls.
More powerful than anything else available on the market today containing a blend of essential plant nutrients: beta-carotene; lycopene; lutein; zeaxanthin & astaxanthin including a range of EFSA approved ingredients: Vit E & Selenium help protect the skin from oxidative stress;
Vit C to help with the formation of collagen in skin; Zinc & Riboflavin for the maintenance of normal skin.
Those who have already had a nibble appear delighted with the result.
Dan29 was so elated, they took to the Superdrug website to leave a glowing five-star review; describing the scrumptious supplement as a ‘game changer:’
I’ve been using the Utan Tan Gummies for 5 days and already I’m seeing a visible subtle change in skin tone. They taste lovely!
They look cute and are fun to take! They taste of Raspberry and are Vegan friendly which is a big plus.
If you’re afraid of self tanning then I would personally try these first then use a Gradual product from the Utan & Tone collection. All in all an absolute game changer and I’m sure you will love these as much as I do!
Oh and guys, these are a perfect alternative to self tanning products as no one will know your secret
