3 self tanners to give you a faux glow
1. Dr Dennis Gross' glow pads are so easy to use and result in a natural-looking color. I use one after cleansing my skin and am sure to get around the hairline, ears and neck. I'm pretty pale so just one use gives me the hint of a tan that I'm after.
2. The Nivea gradual tanning lotion absorbs quickly and doesn't have a strong scent. I have the medium to dark version so that I can see a little color after one use and can reapply just once a week.
3. In-shower moisturizers are so nice for saving a little time and prolonging an existing tan – the St. Tropez tanning one is impossible to mess up. It's not as noticeable as the Nivea but they did come out with a medium color since I last purchased.
I use all of these products in the evening after I shower but it's worth noting they aren't sunscreens, just self tanners so I'd be a bad beauty blogger if I didn't tell you to use SPF before you go out!
