The Best Self-Tanners for Face That Guarantee a Summer Glow Year-Round

21 Best Self Tanners - Top Sunless Tanners for Face and Body

You probably already know that the best thing you can do for your skin is protect it with a high broad-spectrum SPF. But if you're still yearning for a slight glow, there's an appealing alternative: the self tanner. These days, there's one to suit every desire, from natural self tanners, to those that are best for beginners, to faux glow products that are streak free. This reaction generates pigments that temporarily darken the skin and simulate a tan—usually within a few hours of application, but sometimes almost instantaneously. Then, as the dead "browned" skin cells naturally shed over the course of three to seven days, color fades accordingly. To ensure you get a long-lasting and streak-free finish, Kihiczak recommends exfoliating prior to application.

The Best Self-Tanners to Use on Your Face and Body All Year-Round

Call it an initiation, but anyone who ventures into self-tanning has had at least one bad experience with self-tanner. Maybe it was a Cheeto-orange tint, patches of dark color around your knees and elbows, general streaking, and that distinct, pungent self-tanner smell. Good news: New self-tanning products seem to be competitive, with each formula more innovative than the last. No potentially irritating chemical additives, zero streaking or staining the bedsheets, and most important of all, a final color that looks natural—not like an Oompa Loompa. Plus, damage from the sun's UVA rays can be aging to the skin, and damage from UVB rays can burn, and ultimately cause skin cancer.
This year, skip the skin-damaging sun and get your glow the safe way with a faux tan that look so real no one will believe it's from a bottle. Over the years, self-tanners have improved vastly thanks to advances in product formulation that address issues like orange cast by using cooler tones and DHA or dihydroxyacetone, which works by temporarily tinting skin , unpleasant scent helped by superior odor-neutralizing and masking fragrances , and streaking better formulation bases such as lotions, creams, mousses, wipes, and mists that apply and spread smoother and easier. The GH Beauty Lab constantly scans the market for the best self-tanners spanning from inexpensive drugstore picks to high-end formulations, including self-tanning drops , lotions and creams, mists, mousses, oils, wipes, and gel formulas. In our most recent test, Beauty Lab scientists distributed products to consumers across the country, who applied self-tanner daily until they reached their desired tone and then observed how the self-tanner wore and faded. Our testers rated the products on everything from ease of application to scent, look and feel on skin, and how well they built up color and faded over time.
