Beauty: Self Tanners

The sun is finally out but the bright white glare from your legs still makes you feel like it's anything but summer! We all know that tanning is bad for your skin and that years of tanning will do a lot of damage to your skin and health so what's a girl to do to get that sunkissed glow? Luckily self-tanners for both your face and body have come a long way since the old days of streaky, orange skin results! It's best to use a separate one for your face and body as facial skin is a lot more sensitive. Since there are so many sunless tanning options out there, it's easy to get confused when you hit the drugstore - everyone promises the same sunkissed glow but as we've discovered through trial and error - not all self-tanners are created equal! Trust us when we say we've had to hide out in our bedroom after a bad self-tanning incident. And don't even get us started on the time we turned just our legs bright orange and had to wear pants in the scorching heat to avoid the stares! Eek! That's why we've done the work for you and picked the top 5 self-tanners to ensure a smooth transition from winter complexion to summer glow!

Self-tanning tips

1.Before you start tanning it's important to remember to EXFOLIATE! This way the self-tanner will apply evenly and not grab onto any dry patches of skin. Use a gentle cream exfoliant for face or body and moisturize immediately afterwards.


2. Don't forget to shave before applying self-tanner and to put extra moisturizing lotion on elbows and knees to make sure the self-tanner absorbs better on these drier spots.


3.If you want to wear makeup, keep it light - all you need is some lipgloss, mascara and highlighter cream or powder to enhance your glow!

Do You Use Tanning Products?

  • All the time!
  • Bronzing beads are cool cuz it's just like make-up.
  • I hate self-tanners cuz they're greasy and icky!
  • I don't use them cuz they take too long to tint my skin.

Maybe find a few nerds like me... who knows. My dad told me people would make fun of me, but i don't care.... You will face a little making fun of, but as long as you can get past that and ignore others, I think you'll be just fine. If you're already aware of any others like you throughout the school, maybe you should look into making a group! Slip them a note or talk to them yourself, see if they're interested. Good luck!
