The Best Self-Tanners


Jergans Natural GlowWhat is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of summer? Probably the beach (hopefully somewhere tropic, with palm trees, crystal-clear water, and fruity cocktails with little umbrellas), and what does one do at the beach? Tan. Although we all want to be bronzed goddesses, we know that overexposure to the sun’s harsh UV rays can cause more damage than beauty. Fret not, though, my fellow tan junkies, for there is a solution: self-tanners. Before you worry about orange fake ‘n bake and stubborn streaks, check out the best self-tanners that will make you think twice about skipping the sunscreen for the sake of a sizzling tan.
If you’re new to this self-tanning trend, you might want to start off slow and steady with Jergens’ Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer. This mild moisturizer gives you a subtle glow that develops over time, gradually adjusting a perfect tan to your skin without a discolored, patchy mess. This product’s varying formulas give you options that include firming, hydrating, and revitalizing benefits, all while providing a perfect dose of sun-kissed radiance.
St TropezSt. Tropez have staked their claim on the self-tanning market and may have struck gold with their Self-Tan Bronzing Mousse. This luxe mousse has a light, airy texture that blends into skin with minimal effort and gives the ultimate golden tan. The streak-free formula sets into skin in just 60 seconds, making the application process quick and easy. After four (or more) hours, rinse the product off to reveal a dazzling glow that will last up to two weeks and fade naturally, just like a real tan.
For the daring few who desire a rich, deep tan, Vita Liberata’s Dark Tan Lotion will quench your skin’s thirst—literally. This tanning lotion comes in a decadently hydrating formula that nourishes skin while infusing it with silky, dense pigment. Using cutting-edge technology, this product guarantees 2 to 3 weeks of color that mimics the reddish-bronze hue of a natural tan without the baking heat.
