If you're planning to go a shade darker over the weekend, be warned..

Users of fake tan have been given a warning to prepare for a shortage of the product.

According to experts, a key ingredient is becomingly increasingly hard to find, causing supply issues for companies.

The chemical ethoxydiglycol is used in some of the top brands but has been hit with a shortage in recent weeks.

It's also used in other beauty products, such as skin creams and moisturizers.

The warnings have come from a UK based online pharmacy called Medicine Direct.

The outlet say the cosmetics industry could be badly affected by the absence of ethoxydiglycol.

According to The Guardian, there are a number of suppliers without the ingredient in stock at the moment.

Some have said the raw materials are becoming more difficult to obtain, with no timeline for restocking it.

So it might be no harm to prepare for life without Bellamianta or Cocoa Brown.
