Almost everyone enjoys the even complexion that comes from a good suntan. However, if you enjoy looking vibrant and youthful, you should protect your skin from harmful sun rays. In fact, most premature aging is on account of sun and UV exposure. Skincancer.org says 90 percent of skin changes are due to photoaging. (Photoaging happens because of repeated, prolonged exposure to ultra-violet rays.) So, as much as you love the tanning bed, or baking on the beach you should probably skip it. Here’s what you need instead: a good beach umbrella, sunscreen, and sunless tanning lotion you can count on to make your skin look flawless. Sunless tanning lotion can also replace heavy BB creams and give you that bare face look you can wear with confidence.
Vitamin E, vitamin C, and aloe are paired together to give you a ‘sunsational tan’ (their words, not ours.) The word in the reviews is some customers gave up their bad tanning habits with this lotion.
St. Tropez is a staple. It wouldn’t be a proper sunless tanning option without it. This sunless tanner contains Hyaluronic Acid and anti-oxidants. It’s cruelty-free and vegan just like our vegan protein powders! (Shameless plug, we know.)
If other lotions have given themselves a bad rap, then try this one. Reviewers say it’s scentless and doesn’t streak. Fair warning though, you need to wear a glove to apply this one.
Get SPF 40 protection and head out the beach with a pre-fab tan. As with all other self-tanners, you’ll want to exfoliate beforehand so it seeps in. The cure time for this one is four hours. One reviewer says this spray works great on all skin tones.
Super moisturizing. The Comodynes towelettes are formulated with a moisturizing complex. The goal being moisture retention and a great tan that adapts to your skin tone. Be aware that the moisturizing complex will form a film on your skin. You’ll need to wait till it dries completely before getting dressed.
This is such a unique self-tanner. You pick your bottle of drops and then add it to your favorite face cream or sunscreen to create a “bespoke self-tanner.”
Fake Bake has a cult following. Those with deeper skin tones say this is the one for getting them darker, where all others failed. The brand touts their self-tanner will fade out evenly as well. Meaning, no weird patchiness days later.
Gel self-tanners are rumored to go on easier. We also had to include this Tom Ford Bronzing Gel, because as customers say...Tom Ford just gets it right.
Remember ladies, protect your skin. Cherish it. The more attentive you are now, the more grateful you’ll be later. Start living your best life today. Interested in getting in shape and glowing? Try our Start Living Kit, by clicking here.
