So we all know that tanning beds cause cancer. We all know that going out in the sun with out the proper sun protection could be detrimental to your health and skin. Not only does sun screen lower your risks of skin cancers but it also saves your skin from those yucky unwanted lines and wrinkles. So why should one subject their lovely skin to any of those awful rays?! Well it is no secret that everyone wants that lovely summer glow, but it is not necessary for you to go lay in front of the hurtful rays or in an unsanitary tanning bed for that beautiful faux tan. I found the best self tanners that deliver the best results and are the easiest for at home use!
1. Banana Boat Sunless Summer Color Self Tanning Lotion: Don’t let the low price scare you from not being as great or maybe even better than those expensive brands. I swear by this drugstore item and suggest it to everyone. It comes in two possible shades, I use the deep dark which works perfect on medium/olive skin colors.
2. Lancome’s flash bronzer: A formula featuring DHA and Natural Caramel Extract guarantees a gorgeous golden while antioxidant-rich pure Vitamin E helps keep free radicals from doing future damage, and moisturizing ingredients leave skin feeling satiny-soft. This is for those who are looking for some instant gratification with color surfacing in just 30 minutes.
3. The Tan Towel: Perfect for first time tanners because of the easy baby wipe like towelette which will give you a quick and even application from head to toe with no streaks, mess or fuss. The towel’s formula which works with the proteins and amino acids in your skin, produces a healthy and natural sunless tan in just a few hours. These babies are perfect for travel to, just throw a few in your bag!
4. Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel: I just had to try this must-have award winning self tanner and beauty editor favorite! delivers a quick, streak-free, natural golden colour without sitting in the sun. A non-oily, lightweight gel, it’s easy to apply and dries quickly, which is perfect if you want to get dressed right away! This is a high competitor for my favorite against the banana boat!
