Here are 4 self-tanning products to help get that summer glow without the sun.
If you’re looking for a DIY approach to tanning this summer; that doesn’t involve baking under harmful rays, there are some great products to consider, with some even lasting up to 7 days.
Some self tans work instantaneously, whilst others need more commitment, being applied daily to gain the perfect skin tone.
With so many different types of self-tan, it’s hard to pick the right one.
Here are 4 products to help get you started:
For a subtle, gradual glow on a day by day basis, this is the perfect product. Applied once a day; either in the morning or at night before bed, it gradually darkens each day giving the illusion that you have been out in the sun every day working on your tan.
The more regularly you use it, the darker the tan becomes. The cream is enriched with aloe-vera and shea-butter, so you can use this self-tanning as a replacement for your normal body moisturiser too.
The wrong self-tanner on the face can either irritate or add unnecessary oils which can lead to unwanted spots on your face.
Using the highest quality cell renewal technology with apple stem cells, Fake Bake doesn’t clog your pores and helps keep your skin well hydrated. The cream is sheer with the right amount of tint, making it perfect as a replacement for your foundation in the summer months.
If dark is your thing, then Miss M is the right self-tanner for you as they don’t come any darker.
This product blends with your natural skin colour, giving you the darkest tan possible for your skin tone. You should always exfoliate before using a self-tanner, especially when using Miss M Bronzing products. If you have dry spots of dead skin cells anywhere on the body, this product will latch onto the dry spots, leaving you with an uneven skin tone. You will start to see colour in an hour with this self-tanner, so it’s perfect for those last-minute cocktail plans with the girls.
If you’re looking for one self-tanning product that covers both your face and body with just the right amount of healthy glow, this self-tanner by Clarins is the perfect product to use. Enriched with cocoa bean extract to sooth and prevent ageing of the skin and rich in aloe-vera, it will keep your skin well hydrated throughout the day (or night). The cream works quickly to colour the skin, so don’t use too much or you run the risk of the colour turning too dark, or an uneven skin tone. If you looking for more of an instant chocolate colour, Clarins also have another great product called Lait Fondant Self-Tanning Milk Lotion $40.00. It works similar to that of the Delicious Self-Tanning Cream and can be used for both face and body, however provides you with a richer more chocolate colouring.
