It's been almost twenty years since grungey 90s pale looks fell out of Hollywood fashion, and tans were the new 'cool'. Whether you're spraying it on, rubbing it on from a bottle or hitting the sun beds, we've all had our fair share of struggles to snatch a healthy glow pre-holiday and these new gummy bears are about to make it a lot easier. UTAN & Tone say they've created the world's first edible tanning supplement in 'Tan Gummies', designed to accelerate and enhance the perfect bronze tone to pale skins, with and without the sun. They recommend taking two to three gummies per day, sucking on them until they're dissolved or chewing thoroughly before swallowing and you should do this for two to three weeks before jetting off for the best effect.
They work if you're not going on holiday too, as the gummies are designed to work regardless of actual sun exposure. The superdrug website reads: "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. Accelerate your tan all year round with and without sun exposure." Once you hit the tone you're looking for, you're supposed to slowly wean yourself off and reduce the amount you take to one a day to maintain that bronzed look.
So far they're only available in raspberry, but they're gluten free and vegan and cost just £18 for 60 gummies. They're in stock at Superdrug both online and in store, and they certainly sound a lot more appealing than melanin injections, which are still illegal in the UK for some pretty good reasons.
