That sun-kissed glow is one many of us crave. But it’s not always practical to get a natural suntan. Many of us don’t have time to lay in the sun all day and a lot of us are trying to avoid the harmful rays and protect our skin. Self-tanning can help us achieve that beautiful bronze look, but you want it to be convincing. 

The following products are some of our favorites for delivering a streak-free and natural finish.

Sunless Tanning Deep Water Mousse

This dye-free, clear mousse is made by Jergens — who’s long been perfecting their self-tanning line. It applies like a plush cloud and smells like a tropical vacation, making it pleasant to use, while delivering a smooth and even finish.

Gradual Sunless Tanning Lotion

This ultra-hydrating lotion is great for those new to the self-tanning game. It adds a bit of color each time you use it. The gradual development of color looks more natural and it helps you avoid streaks and unevenness.

Airbrush Legs Body Makeup Spray

Need some quick color for the day? This airbrush self-tanner is water-resistant and can be sprayed on at a moment’s notice.

Australian Glow One House Express Self Tan Mousse

Want to be tan quick and want it to stick around? Unlike the airbrush spray which will wash off in the shower, this one-hour mousse will give you glow that’ll stick.

Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist

So often we pay attention to our legs, arms and stomach when we’re using self-tanner. And that makes sense. Those are our biggest body parts. Plus, we rarely wear makeup on those areas. But, you’ll likely want to give your face a little bit of glow too. Which is where this self-tanning mist comes into play. It’s infused with natural tanning agents that help you get that golden glow you’re craving.
