The Best Self Tanners

Y,all… what day is it?!? This week has flown by and I am still writing April instead of May on my invoices at work aaahhh… I have been super busy that I didn’t have  chance to post yesterday but I had several requests for my favorite self tanners so I had to share asap!


 I am a big self-tanner fan and use them on the regular. I have been putting some new self-tanners to the test and found a few that I really liked so I need to update my list. Plus I am sharing the best new way to apply self-tanner so you need to read to the end of the post so you can be assured you get an even, flawless streak free tan too. These are my new favorites – the top 8 self-tanners to fake a beautiful, faux glow.

Are you ready to give you skin the glow it needs without the harmful rays? Don’t forget, prolonged sun exposure is incredibly dangerous, and can lead to everything from premature aging to deadly forms of skin cancer. It’s just not worth it! I actually managed a tanning salon for 5 years and I have seen it all… very scary! If I could tell my 25 year old self to stay away from the tanning beds I would have…


When you want to apply sunless tanning lotion, or self-tanners, follow these simple steps for best results:

– Exfoliate dead skin, especially places like your elbows, knees, and ankles

– Don’t shave the same day you apply self-tanner

– Make sure your skin is dry before you begin application

-Wash your hands with both soap and water after each section is complete to keep them from getting unnaturally discolored (or use protective gloves)

-Wait at least ten minutes before dressing to make sure the product dries completely

-Continue to keep your skin hydrated so your new tan lasts as long as possible

-For best results, consider applying self tanner at night so it has time to work


What are some of your favorite self tanners?
