With the change of season and the onset of cooler weather, I’m (obviously) in the sun a lot less than what I was. I love having a good glow, though, and am sharing five of my favorite self tanning products below. They give a nice, natural glow without feeling too orange, and I’ve become an expert at applying them. Sharing all my secrets + tips!
What I love about these drops is that you can mix them into your existing moisturizer, so your routine doesn’t have to change. The number of drops you mix in will allow you to control the level of tan, and the color is really nice! Pro tip- instead of lotion, I mix these in with my face oil for super even coverage!
Gradual Tan Firming Body Moisturizer
You know how much I love Volition products, and this is one of my faves! It is truly one of the only self tanning products I’ve found that does not leave behind any odor and applies exactly as a moisturizer would. I’m obsessed! Coverage is super buildable without being orange, too. Just make sure to wash your hands after applying.
When I have an event or something I need pretty immediate color for, this San Tropez is my go-to. The tan will gradually get darker based on the number of hours you leave it on, ranging from one to three. This is perfect if you don’t have the standard eight hours to wait for a tan to develop. I’d highly recommend using a self tanning mitt for this.
These Drunk Elephant drops are perfect to use under makeup or when you want to leave the house makeup-free and still have a glow. Their benefits are amazing, too, with active ingredients to help combat environmental stressors.
If you’re looking for something more temporary, highly recommend this product from Lux Unfiltered. It is amazing! Acts like an IRL filter for your body while giving it an extra glow. The product has some amazing ingredients, too, that pack in the benefits of a good moisturizer!
