How to Get the Perfect Tan Without Damaging Your Skin

How to Get the Perfect Tan Without Damaging Your Skin

The perfect complement to any summer outfit is a bronze glow.  So for pale girls like me, getting for the perfect summer glow means putting in some work. As tanning beds and laying out in the sun can result in a good tan but can damage my skin or be life threatening that left me to go and get spray tans, which quickly became expensive and time-consuming. Then I tried self-tanners and haven’t gone back since. Since then I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect self-tanner. To be a perfect fit, the product must be easy to apply, look natural, and not dry out my skin. After trying about a dozen self-tanners, I have found my top three.

Sally Hansen Airbrushed Legs

Sally Hansen Airbrushed Legs is a lightweight formula that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It is easy to apply and can be layered up for a darker tan. It absorbs fast and is water resistant with little to no transfer. (and at $13 it’s totally affordable!)
