Now the summer has finally arrived, many women and surprisingly a number of men probably reached for the fake tan in the past few weeks as they bared their limbs for the first time this year.

A good skin care routine consists of exfoliating and moisturising, as well as remembering to wash your hands after application! It’s essential if you want to achieve a perfect sun-kissed look. If applied correctly, it is possible to emulate a natural, post-holiday glow with fake tan.

For the majority of people, the real challenge is how to achieve that flawless tanned glow without it looking streaky, patchy or just bright orange! But for those who did end up suffering from a mishap, you’re not alone! Let’s take a look at 19 fake tan disasters we can all relate to:

1. Is this really the look you were going for?

This woman has extremely failed in attempting to get the bronzed look, it has left her looking rather comically dark! She is pictured cosying up for a photo with a male companion, I’m sure she regrets that!
