Everyone looks better with a tan. That’s one of the 10 Commandments, right?
To keep your skin healthy and still maintain a bronze goddess glow, try using one of these five favorite self-tanners. Skin cancer is definitely not hot, so keep out of tanning beds and always use an SPF when going into the sun.
Here are some of our favorite products:
360° Eco-Mist from Norvell is really awesome and gives you that “just off the beach” glow. When it comes to sunless tanning technology, this brand has been voted as number one by salons across the country. This mist is easy to apply and provides long-lasting results without making you look orange – or worse – streaky! Eco Mist uses a natural complex of ingredients that are eco-certified and organic. They’re also 100% vegan and gluten-free. Available at Ulta. ($16)
bareMinerals is a brand that we at BBB just love! Their Faux Tan Body gives you an all-over bronze glow that develops into a natural looking, golden tan. A mineral copper complex prolongs the tanning effects, while aloe vera provides hydration so skin feels soft and smooth. bareMinerals claims a streak-free application within hours of applying. Buy it here for $26.
Another one of our favorites is Neutrogena. The brand is well-known for their acne-fighting creams and serums, so you wouldn’t necessarily think they also make a kick-ass self-tanning spray. Enter: MicroMist Airbrush Sunless Tan. This ultra-fine mist has a one-touch continuous spray that works at any angle to get those hard to reach places. No more random streaks or missed spots! Buy it here for $11.
For those of you who are too nervous to take the plunge into self-tanning in fear of turning orange, look no further than the Bronze Buffer. It’s the only product that wipes away the faux tan color instantly if you make a mistake! This soft cushioned sponge has no added ingredients or chemicals. With just a little water, Bronze Buffer’s gentle abrasion removes unwanted self-tanner on the uppermost layers of skin. It’s recommended to use this product on trouble spots like elbows and knees, fingers and toes. You can get two sponges for $10 here.
