7 Easy Self-Tan Products To Use For A Gorgeous Faux Glow
By now, we all know that laying out and baking in the sun isn’t good for your skin. But what’s a gal to do when she wants to be all glowy and bronzy? If you’re looking for a safe summer glow, then it’s time to reach for some self-tanner, STAT. Now we’re not saying to not go outside, like, at all. Play in the sun, head to the beach, and live your life but do so responsibly, kids. Get the good sunscreen for a change (we suggest switching to a natural one), reapply often (yes, like more than once), and maybe throw on a big sun hat. Getting a glow from some self-tanner is a great way to get the tan you desire but without the risk of skin cancer — sorry, but it’s true.
These 7 self-tanners are an easy and foolproof way to get a gorgeous summer glow!
When using any type of self-tanner, the number one worry is that it’ll end up looking blotchy and uneven. The beauty about these James Read tanning drops is that because the formula is water-based, it applies so light and effortlessly for even application everytime. Just mix a few drops in with your moisturizer, sunscreen, or just in the palm of your hands and apply to the face, and that’s it!
Worried about your self-tanner transferring on your bright whites? Not anymore because this new launch from St.Tropez is totally clear. Infused with a delightful tropical scent, this tanning water foams up and when applied with a tanning mitt, gives the most natural and beautiful tan. Bonus — there’s no need to wash off after application, either!
Most self-tanners require some vigorous application with mitts but not this one. Neutrogena’s Micro Mist sprays such a fine mist of sunless tan that it requires virtually no rubbing in at all. Plus, there’s no transfer so no awkward sitting around in a towel, and it lasts for ages.
This self-tanner by Vita Liberata offers a gorgeous bronze tan that used to only be achieved by going on an expensive holiday. Apply with a tanning mitt and wait just 10 minutes, rinse off, and you’ll be left with a glow that’s luminous and even all over. Plus, this brand is certified clean at Sephora as well — so cool!

If you’re in search of a self-tanning product that’s completely different, then the Tan Luxe Illuminating Self-Tan Oil is for you. Not only is this product oil-based, but it applies with a rollerball that has a cooling effect — perfect for hot summer days, right? After application, the organic tanning actives work to deliver a buildable, luminous glow, plus it’s super hydrating for up to 48 hours.
