I have the kind of skin that naturally tans even though I wear SPF daily, so a sun-kissed complexion was something I always took for granted in Southern California. That doesn’t mean that I don’t like a little help in maintaining that warm glow though!
The Nature’s Gate Glow Lotion features natural ingredients and is paraben free! But what I really love is that it’s truly a two-in-one product, meaning I can skip my lotion with this gradual self tanner since it’s moisturizing enough on its own.
Lorac TANtalizer is a good option for a more subtle and immediate effect. Think of it as a bronzing liquid veil for the body instead of a strong self tanner. The soft shimmer gives you a supermodel glow and the scent is actually pleasant.
St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse is an instant full-color self tanner, which means it’s trickier to ensure even coverage. Thanks to the blendable mousse texture though, it’s a bit easier to manage.
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder is a cult classic for natural color that doesn’t look muddy on the skin. The key is the texture of the powder that allows you to really blend it into your skin. Plus it comes in several colors, so you can really customize your bronze. Just make sure to pick up a nice bronzing brush!
NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo is a convenient product that eliminates guesswork. Sculpt with the bronzer and accent with blush on the cheeks for the most flattering look.
St. Ives Apricot Scrub, or any exfoliator that works for you really, is absolutely crucial to achieving the smoothest, most natural looking tan. Any product you apply will go on more easily if your skin is as flawless as possible. Don’t forget to moisturize after!
