So I know that a lot of you enjoy looking beautiful and bronzed, and who could blame you? Tan skin is almost always flattering, especially in the summer! But how many of you are getting your tan on with sunless tanners? If you are guilty of indulging in a low-to-no SPF UV-sesh, then listen up! I have news for you! Not only are UV rays dangerous (I know you know that already), they are actually aging your skin at an astonishing rate. Trust me, that gorgeous tan is not worth the wrinkles and potential skin cancer, there are ways to get your tan on without the sun, and I want to share some of my favorite sunless bronzers and sunscreens with you! Ready? Enjoy!
Brush on Bronzers
Brush on bronzers are absolutely fantastic! Because you control the level of bronze with your brush, and of course, can wash off anything you are not comfortable with. These compact treats work great to make your skin glow, and add contour to your beautiful face! My favorites, you ask? I am a huge fan of Eminence Organics Mocha Berry Bronzer, as well as La Bella Donna Compressed Mineral Foundation Bronzer!Enjoy as the Eminence Organics Mocha Berry Bronzer adds warmth and luminosity to your skin, giving you a healthy, natural-looking glow! Infused with acai berry, green tea, and vitamins, this tanning treat is sure to delight all skin types.
Looking for additional options? La Bella Donna Compressed Mineral Foundation contains a soothing formula and is developed with a mineral base; so sensitive skin users, this product is for you! While super lightweight, this product delivers wonderful coverage and… reduces redness and swelling caused by acne, rosacea, allergies, and melasma! How great is that?!
Lets start with Beautisol’s Need I Glow More Face Tanner, coming in two different forms: on for DRY skin, the other for OILY. I absolutely love love love this product! This product is truly one-of-a-kind with its skin-specific formulas, delivering you the perfect an for you skin type! What more could one ask for? And of course this product doesn’t stop at tanning, Need I Glow More goes above and beyond, delivering moisture and soothing ingredients to make your skin glow inside and out.

And of course who could forget about Jan Marini? I know I certainly can’t! For a bronzing beautification also consider Jan Marini’s Bioglycolic Sunless Self Tanner! Truly a state-of-the-art self tanner, Bioglycolic Sunless Self-Tanner utilizes an amino acid that interacts with your skin’s protein, activating a beautiful, natural-appearing, long-lasting color change that is customized to your skin type and color! And of course the Glycolic acid works to ensure better penetration, decreasing the time that is necessary for the color to appear. For long-term, dye-free color, this product is a definite winner!
If you are getting deliciously dark without the help of the sun, why leave your skin vulnerable to its damage? My answer is always wear sunscreen. On your face. On your body. Any part of you that is going to see the sun today, sunscreen it up! There is no reason to age your beautifully tanned skin if you don’t have to; which is why I am sharing my sunscreen favorites with you!
Looking for a small, discreet, and easy sun protection method? Then you are going to love Dermalogica’s Solar Defense Wipes SPF15! That’s right! These bad boys are as easy as it gets when it comes to applying sunscreen; simply wipe & go! But do not forget to reapply if you are going to be in the sun for an extended amount of time!
Another sunscreen fav is Epicuren’s Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF20. Perfect for both the face and body, this heavy-duty, ultra-light sunscreen will deliver you Zinc Oxide protection, without leaving a filmy white residue. Use this alone or under your makeup, this product is a definite crowd pleaser.
If you are looking for something truly unique and absolutely tantalizing, I have to recommend any and all things COOLA! This comprehensive sunscreen line uses only natural ingredients, giving you beautifully chemical-free coverage that will leave your skin feeling and smelling absolutely amazing!
Remember that beautiful skin is a blessing! Bronze is beautiful, but do it in a way that will make your skin lose that beauty faster. Self Tanners + Sunscreen = happier, healthier skin, which you absolutely deserve!
