  • NURVV Run, usually £250 but on offer for the next week with 30 per cent off at – buy now

Ever overdone the training and given yourself an injury? Me too.

This amazing new technology tells you why. NURVV Run is a thin insole with 32 sensors.

It tells you how and where your foot is striking, taking 1,000 measurements a second.

It is pricey but if you are serious about running, worth it.


  • Saucony’s new Ride 13 runners, £125, – buy now

These will get you spotted in the dark. Saucony’s new Ride 13 runners are designed to offer smooth miles, with extra cushioning that shapes to your foot.

The springy feeling will keep you energised.

They really do feel squidgy for less pavement thumping.

The price is not horrendous in return for saving your knees further down the line.


  • Columbia’s Trail Summit gloves, £25, – buy now

I love Columbia’s Trail Summit gloves.

My hands always get cold and you don’t have to take these off to use your running app, as they have screen-friendly fingertips.

With a clever thermal-reflective lining, they aren’t thick or bulky. But opt for a smaller size than normal, as they are big.

I wouldn’t be without these now.

  • Bondi Sands Pure gradual tanning lotion, £12.99, 200ml, – buy now

Enriched with hyaluronic acid, plus vitamins E and C, this absorbed quickly, leaving no stickiness on the skin.

Developed overnight into a gorgeous tan with zero transfer on to sheets and no smell.

It left my skin soft and hydrated and has replaced my daily body cream.

Recyclable packaging, too.


  • Isle Of Paradise dark tanning mousse, £19.95, 200ml, – buy now

A self-tanning mousse packed with natural ingredients including avocado, chia seeds and coconut oil, and free of nasties such as parabens and sulphates.

The tan is easy to apply with a mitt and leaves a deep, natural glow.

Tan is long-lasting, dries quickly and doesn’t have that telltale biscuity smell.


  • Sienna X rose tanning water, £15.95, 100ml, – buy now

Infused with organic rose and chicory root extract to nourish the skin, plus rose geranium essential oil for a nice fragrance.

The spray bottle makes it easy to apply. I spritzed then rubbed with a mitt to ensure even application.

After a few applications, I started to tan. I found it better for my face than body.

The formula is 100 per cent natural, which is a big plus.
