Tan Woman reading

Looking for a self tanner that will provide a natural glow? These are 6 of the best self tanners for a natural glow after summer.

Missing that Australian bronze summer glow can be a real mood killer during the colder months, here’s how to replicate a gorgeous healthy glow without the sun, using self tanners. 

A good quality self tanner will make the skin appear super smooth and hydrated when paired with exfoliator and regular moisturising.

Having a glowing tan can really boost confidence and self esteem, creating a positive vibe for the months lacking the warm sun.  

Choosing the right self tanning colour:

For the perfect tan, its important to choose the right tone for your skin type. All self tanning products have colour as a base or undertone. These are the undertones to look for.

Violet undertones are great for people with a yellow undertone of skin.

Green based tans are suitable for people with rosy or pink undertones of skin.

Red based tans are good for all skin tones.
