1883 Magazine

2018 British Summer time has been one of the hottest on record. With most of us using this time catching rays at the beach and summer parties there is always room for a little more glow in our lives.

Fake tan brands have developed their formulas to work around our busy schedules with many now only needing 1 hour to develop. We are also a million miles away from the orange streaky reputation fake tan had with warm golden shades on offer for all skin tones.

Here at 1883 we have our top picks for all this summer.
