Which Self Tanners Work The Best?
A Review Of Self Tanners

best-self-tannersNow that summer is over and the cooler temperatures of fall and winter are approaching, it doesn’t mean you have to resolve yourself to another pale winter skin tone. Even todays celebrities such as Heroes stars Kristen Bell and Hayden Panettiere (see photo left) adore the sun-kissed look. Bronzed skin not only gives off a healthy glow, but can also make you look pounds thinner. Getting a beautiful bronzed face and body these days does not require you to lie out in the sun or in a tanning bed; both of which can be harmful for your skin (e.g., skin cancer, wrinkles, premature aging). Self tanners can get you that sun-kissed bronzed look without the risks. With all of the different products out on the market you are probably wondering which self tanners work the best.

Which Self Tanners Work The Best?

Jessica-Alba-tan-skinFirst off, price is not as important as you might think when it comes to determining which self tanners work the best. The good news is that when it comes to purchasing a self tanning product you do not have to spend an exorbitant amount of money to get a high quality looking tan. In fact, some of the least expensive tanning products will produce the same quality tanned look as their more expensive counterparts; provided they are properly applied (see Jessica Alba's tan skin at right).

It is also important to differentiate between self face tanning products and self body tanning products. When tanned, the skin on our bodies tends to be slightly darker than the skin on our faces and hands. So when applying self body tanning products you should apply a little less of the product on your face and hands. It may even be helpful to buy both types of self tanning products: one made for face self tanning and one made for bodies. Here is a list of the best self tanners that are available today.

Which Self Tanners Work The Best:

1. Neutrogena Instant Bronze Deep

best-self-tanner-neutrogenaThis is a sunless tanner and instant bronzer in one product that comes in foam and lotion forms and in both medium and deep tones. It has a bronze tint that helps result in an even application since you can see where the cream is as you put it on. The cream provides an instant bronze color with the actual tan setting in approximately 30 minutes. A great benefit is the fast dry formula, which allows you to dress within 5 minutes of application. This seems to be the most popular product to use.


2. Fake Bake Instant Self-Tanning Spray

With their flawless looking bodies you would never know they were "faking it"? This stuff is great and well worth the purchase. Not only does it go far and tan fast, but it also has great staying power with the benefit of natural fading. It comes in lotion, mousse, and gel forms. Love it!



3. Purminerals Get a Little Self Tanning Lotion

4. Peter Thomas Roth Natural Looking Self-Tanner

a-review-of-self-tannersIf you want a product that produces the deepest, most lasting color of any tanning product out there this is it. This product provides an almost immediate tan, plus you don't have to wait hours for your color to develop. This is a very natural self tanning product that has a very pleasant cherry almond scent and gives you a beautiful olive undertone. It lasts a long time and you won't believe how dark you get with just one application.
