Faux Glow: 3 Self-Tanners We Love
While tanned, sun-kissed skin looks healthy, the process of laying out to get the glow is anything but. Why you ask? Well, those same UV rays that are responsible for that bronzed tan are also responsible for wrinkles, dark spots, and skin cancers like melanoma—no, thank you. This is why it’s so important to wear daily broad-spectrum SPF and to get your glow using self tanner. New to self-tanning? No worries! Whether you’re looking for a quick fix, major convenience, or a gradual glow, we’re sharing our 3 favorite self-tanners for getting the perfect faux glow, below.
Lancôme Flash Bronzer
Want to look like you’ve spent a week lounging on the French Riviera without ever leaving home? Try this tinted self-tanning body gel from Lancôme for a fresh-from-vacay glow sans sun damage! Your skin gets a golden bronze in just 30 minutes plus a dose of moisture for a satiny-smooth feel—we call that a win-win.
L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Towelettes for Body
Want to glow on the go? These self-tanning towelettes from L’Oréal Paris help you get a streak-free, natural-looking tan wherever—and whenever—it’s convenient for you. Prep your skin for the self-tanner application and then smooth the single-use wipe evenly over your skin, using sparingly over your knees, ankles, and elbows. What we love most is that you can use additional towelettes to build on the self-tan until you’ve reached your desired level of bronze.
Decleor Aroma Sun Expert Self Tanning Milk Natural Glow
Whether you’re looking to maintain a fake tan, or simply prefer to take things slow, this self-tanning milk from Decleor is for you. It works on your face and body to give a gradual glow with continued use. Thanks to essential oils of Tahiti vanilla, jasmine, and rose, the non-greasy formula has a gorgeous scent. Use two to three times a week for a healthy-looking glow.
