12 Self-Tanning Hacks, Tips and Tricks For A Perfect Sun-Kissed Glow

Tanning, whether it’s in the sun or in a tanning booth, is very bad for you. By now, we should all know that tanning can lead to wrinkles, in the best case scenario, and skin cancer, in the worst case scenario. But even though I know tanning is frowned upon, I can’t help it: I love a good sun-kissed glow. I like when my skin is just a little bit darker. It makes me feel more confident.

If you feel the same way as I do, keep reading. Luckily for us, there is self-tanning, and it doesn’t require the harmful sun or UV lights you’ll find in a tanning salon. Self-tanning is a much better option, but it can also be a little tricky (read: streaky). If you want to master self-tanning for a perfect sun-kissed glow, you need to check out these 12 self-tanning hacks, tips and tricks right now.

    My favourite fake tan is the L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Summer Glow Lotion. I’m REALLY pale (ginger and Scottish – what do you expect) and this tan is so natural looking even with my freckles and red hair. It’s supposed to be a build up one but one application’s enough to get the colour I’m looking for so I’d def recommend to anyone who’s worried about fake tan being too dark.
