Newsflash: skin cancer is so 2016. If you’re looking for a sun-kissed glow but have become a sunscreen devotee (and you should!), welcome to the world of self-tanners. Remember, exfoliation is the key to a streak-free tan
Just a Touch
For the commitment-phobe, try brushing on a tan where you need it. With EU compliant standards, local favorite Lover Cosmetics offers a gluten-free, vegan tanning powder that will put the sun where you want it. Lover Cosmetics Tanning Powder, $24.
If you could choose a bronze to emulate, wouldn’t Brazil be the place? Try the Brazilliance self-tanner from Tarte Cosmetics. With a bit of tint, you’ll know exactly where you applied it with the custom-made application mitt. And with PUREshield scent-control technology, they’ll have to guess whether it’s fake or bake. Tarte Brazilliance PLUS+ self-tanner + mitt, $39, exclusively at Sephora.
Like the Sun but Better
If you want to eliminate the weird self-tanner smell, get rid of the chemicals that produce it. With all-natural, organic ingredients like shea butter, green tea extract, and coconut oil, the All-Natural Self-Tanner by Beauty by Earth will be your new best friend.
