Innovative Products To Keep You Sun-Kissed Post-Summer
That golden glow you got going on, it doesn’t have to disappear simply because summer’s about to become a thing of the past. Fall is fast approaching, sigh, and with cooler temps comes paler skin. Of course, makeup can remedy this – the right shade of bronzer is face-changing – but so can these innovative skin and body products that keep the tanned look, sans sun and UV rays. After all, a bronzed complexion brings life — and youth — to the face, and who doesn’t enjoy a healthier, younger complexion? Glow on, you golden goddess. Sun-Kissed without the sun (or the streaks of average self-tanners).
Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops ($29) – Depending on the level of bronze you’re going for, add 1-12 drops of this tanning potion to your moisturizer, then apply to the face (bonus: it can be used on the body, too!). So simple, you can use this stuff as part of your daily skincare routine. This organic, vegan formula gives you that perfect shade of sun-kissed sans any orange tint or unfortunate streaking.
Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops ($36) – Cult-Favorite Drunk Elephants summer launch is both an anti-aging serum and a tinted, bronzed cream to give you an immediate glow. The antioxidant-rich formula protects against pollutants and environment, all while delivering a beautiful, sun-kissed finish (that washes off!).
Charlotte Tilbury Overnight Bronze & Glow Mask ($55) – A moisturizing night mask that also delivers a gradual, buildable tan. Think of it as powerful hydrator mixed with a self-tanner, without any orange residue or streaks. Let the mask do the work while you sleep, and wake up to a natural golden complexion and mega hydration.
Dr. Sebagh Self-Tanning Drops ($55) – Described as “intelligent tanning,” these drops offer skin benefits and a golden glow. In fact, the drops protect against HEV light, aka the glare of your phone and computer, while giving you a buildable sun-kissed complexion. The tan lasts 2-3 days, but use daily and you’ll always have that perfect bronzed goddess look.
Baja Bae Caramel Lotion ($29)- The Instagram Influencer-favorite, this lotion adds an immediate sun-kissed hue, while offering longterm nourishment and hydration. The formula even fights stretch marks, cellulite, and scars. Amazing for the body, but its all-natural, antioxidant-rich formula makes it a great choice for the face, too. They say to think of it as a tinted moisturizer, not a self-tanner. Color washes off ager each use.
*Always remember to use SPF. Even with products that give you a hint of tint, sans sun, SPF is mandatory.
