After months of sheltering in place, I’m sure going to the beach and getting a tan is high up on your list of things to do once everything is back to normal. If your white, pasty body can’t wait for a few more weeks, there are sunless tanners to help you create a vacation glow. Plus, these self-tanners are a lot less damaging (because the sun’s UVA rays can cause your skin to age) and do not have any harmful chemicals in them. Here are our top picks to look like a bronze goddess.

St. Tropez Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Mousse

For a natural effect, St. Tropez’s mousse is streak-free and lightweight. The formula is buildable and quick-drying, so you are in complete control of how golden-brown you want to be.

Isle of Paradise Glow Clear Self-Tanning Mousse

This remarkable self-tanning mousse contains colour correcting actives that will match your skin tone perfectly. What’s more, the product is infused with coconut, chia seed and avocado oil to moisturise and protect your skin as you tan. 

James Read Tan Instant Bronzing Mist

With a specially-designed 360-degree nozzle that releases a fine mist for a streak-free and even finish, this instant bronzing mist is the closest you will get to a spray tan at home. Your skin will also feel hydrated and firmer as the tinted formula contains ingredients such as aloe vera and vitamin E.

Tan-Luxe The Face Illuminating Self-Tan Drops

Add a few drops of the Tan-Luxe drops to your moisturiser or serum for a sun-kissed effect on your face. This toxin-free concentrate seamlessly evens out your natural skin tone for a radiant glow and can be applied before foundation.

pHenomenal 2-3 Week Self Tan Mousse

For those who don’t like to reapply every few days, this mousse promises to last up to three weeks and shows results in just a few hours. Believe it or not, this product guarantees 72-hour hydration, so dry skin is a worry of the past.
