Get your faux tan on!

You’ve all heard it, tanning is bad for you. Nowadays I enjoy a subtle glow with the help of self tanners, but I kind of have to since I’m locked up in an office all day long. Stupid career getting in the way of me going to the beach.

Choosing the right self tanner can be quite a hassle. Too much DHA in the product can make you Orange County orange.  The ones I feature below are some of the highest rated tanners on the web. They contain lower amounts of DHA and/or contain color correcting agents to counteract the orange. Rest assured you wont be looking like an oompa loompa anytime soon.

 
Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel– Good for face and body, you can expect full results in 2 hours.

 
Dior Bronze Self-Tanner Shimmering Glow Body– This is Lauren Conrad’s goto self tanner. Described by her to give her the most real tan around. It also smells really good! Full results in an hour.


St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Lotion– Contains color correctors, aloe, and fragrance technology to eliminate the tell-tale self-tan aroma by 70%.

 
L’Oreal Sunless Sublime Glow Daily Moisturizer– A budget alternative to most tanners. L’Oreal offers a gradual tan while moisturizing.

What’s your favorite self tanner?
