5 Ways to Look More Tan (without the Sun Damage)

mv

When Summer starts peaking it’s head out from behind the clouds of the rainy Spring season, getting my skin back to a color that doesn’t resemble that of Caspers is one of my first to-dos. Now obviously the easiest and cheapest way to do this is to go outside on a hot, sunny day and lay out until your skin is the perfect shade of tan (or more likely in my case tomato red), but seeing as this causes skin cancer, I wouldn’t recommend this. So in lieu of bronzing your skin up naturally, I’m here to present to you 5 healthier options for making yourself look tan.

  1. Spray Tan – Probably the most obvious option but spray tans will last longer than any other type of fake tan you can get. They’re also the most expensive option.
  2. At-home Tan – These products usually last about a week or so and can yield some pretty great results! My sister used one last week and looks bomb. Try the St.Tropez  or Loving Tan)
  3. Gradual self-tanners – Moisturizing with gradual tanners will not only give you a more bronzed look, it will nourish your skin and make pre-existing tans last MUCH longer. (Try Jergens Natural Glow)
  4. Wear white – The lighter your clothes, the darker your skin will look in contrast.
  5. Lighten your hair or teeth – Same principle of contrast with wearing white. The lighter your hair and teeth are, the darker your skin will appear. As soon as I go a shade lighter for my Summer hair, I immediately get comments about looking tanner.

BONUS- this one’s a bonus because it’s pretty obvious but switching to a darker foundation and bronzer will always give you a darker complexion. Just make sure you switch up your concealer as well!
