Is there anything chicer than a golden glow? Dressed up in your summer florals or hanging out in denim cutoffs, a tan is the perfect finish to any look. Shop our picks for summer’s best self-tanners.
A healthy glow is every beauty lover’s favorite part of the summer. But healthy is key here, people. We all know how bad sitting out in the sun is for your skin, which is why we’re all about faking it when it comes to getting a just-back-from-vacation glow like Shay Mitchell.
Tan Helpers: Before you choose your tanning weapon of choice, make sure to prep your skin by using a scrub like Jergens Natural Glow Color Primer In-Shower Scrub. The gentle scrub smoothes away rough skin and dry patches for an even canvas for applying self-tanner. When it comes to actually laying down your tan, any self-tanner enthusiast will tell you how hard it is to properly tan your back. Xen-Tan Hard To Reach Back Applicator aims to make the process easier with its collapsible applicator that gives you an extended reach.
Streak-Free Tanners: When it comes to actually applying your self-tanner because the formulas have come such a long way, you can pretty much guarantee it will work. Instead, it’s more about your personal preference. For a hands-free spray on method, L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Salon Airbrush guarantees no streaky palms. For a mousse option, Vita Liberata Fabulous Tinted Self Tanning Mousse is said to be favored by celebs like Kim Kardashian and Rita Ora.
