Get A Great Summer Tan By Faking It!

It’s almost summer! That means shorts, sundresses, and bikinis. It also means it’s time to think about getting a tan. Summer attire looks best on bronzed skin. I think we can all agree on that based on how much money is spent in the United States to achieve a summer 'glow'.

We all know that tanning by laying out in the sun is very dangerous. Tanning beds are also very dangerous. Both of these types of tannings have been linked to cancer. No matter how nice a summer glow looks it is not worth your health. So, does that mean you are destined to spend the summer looking pale and pasty? No. There are many self tanners out there that can give you a summer glow without exposing you to cancer. Say yes to a fake tan with some simple and safe drugstore self tanners this summer.

Many people have had bad experiences with self tanners. Some cause you to look orange, while others come out looking streaky, and completely fake. For this reason a lot of people have given up on self tanners, and went back to the tanning beds. Well, it doesn't have to be this way. Sure, there are some terrible products out there right now, but there are also a few great ones that do exactly as they promise.

The following is a list of the best self tanners that you can find at your local drugstore right now.

Jergens Natural Glow Express Body Moisturizer

This is by far one of the greatest self tanners, for the body, you can find. It comes in two color choices, fair to medium and medium to tan skin tones. You start seeing results on the first day of use, and after only 3 days you will be a complete shade darker, or more! Since it is a lotion, not a spray, it's much easier to apply without missing spots. Honestly, it is really hard to mess up using this because the color starts out light so mistakes aren't noticeable, and after 3 days of applying the product any mistakes you made are blended in. The resulting color is a very nice warm bronze, that looks natural with your skin tone. You will not look orange, you’ll look like you just came back from a relaxing vacation.

Furthermore, this product is an extremely effective moisturizer, and doesn't have the bad scent that most self tanners do. You can find Jergens Natural Glow products at any drugstore, it's extremely affordable which only adds to it's appeal.

Loreal Sublime Glow For Face Daily Moisturizer

For your face, you will need to use a different product. As a rule you should never apply anything to your face that wasn't designed to be used there. Loreal Sublime Glow For Face Daily Moisturizer is a great facial self tanner. It comes in two color choices, fair and medium to dark. Be sure to use the right color for your skin tone to get the best results. It truly gives you a wonderful color, your skin looks radiant after the first use. Use it daily to build up a nice color, then apply as needed. Loreal Sublime Glow does not cause your skin to break out, as other face tanners normally do. It does not have a strong scent, so it works great for sensitive skin also. This is a 3 in 1 product, which will cut down your morning routine dramatically. It serves as a face tanner, it also contains SPF 15 sunscreen, and is a very effective moisturizer. On top of that, it’s also very cheap!

Tips On Getting The Best Fake Tan For This Summer

  • Shave your legs and exfoliate your skin the day before applying self tanners.
  • Completely rub in the self tanner.
  • Have someone help you do your back if you can.
  • 10 minutes after applying the product, rub a small amount of lotion into your elbows and knees, this will lighten the effect in these areas.
  • Wait at least a half hour before getting dressed.

Now you have a great tan, thanks to drugstore self tanners! No one will know it's fake, it'll be our secret. Enjoy your summer!
