Fortunately, there are many amazing self-tanners to help you maintain that beautiful summer glow all winter long.
If you want to keep your skin looking tanned year-round, there’s no need to book costly spray-tan appointments or spend time in a tanning booth exposing your skin to excessive harmful UV rays. There are many simple, convenient, and effective alternatives that you can use to retain your sexy summer skin tone, and we’ve rounded up the best of the best in this great list of sunless tanners, lotions, moisturizers, mists, mousses, and more for face and body. Make sure you stay right to the end, because we’ve also got some great news about fantastic at-home anti-aging technology that will take your skin care regimen to a whole new level. Now, let’s hop right to it!
Starting off our list is this delightful sunless tanning lotion that is the perfect way to get a noticeable sun-kissed look in just 3 hours. This light and non-greasy golden tanning body lotion absolutely will not streak on the skin, leaving it looking natural and vibrant. Made from plant-based ingredients with no artificial colors or synthetic fragrances, Alba Botanica Sunless Tanner Lotion is free of parabens and phthalates that can irritate or dry out your skin. One application is often all that’s needed for a long-lasting bronzing effect, but you can apply daily if you desire a deeper skin tone.
If you want the focus to be on your face, then this self-tanning overnight face mask is an easy way to do it. With a light and fresh coconut scent, Bliss Stay-cay Glow Tanning Face Mask will let you wake up with that back-from-the-beach look and leave your skin feeling soft and moisturized. Simply apply a light layer on freshly cleaned dry skin and blend into the areas near your hairline and base of the neck, while avoiding the skin in close proximity to your eyes. Once you wake up, a quick face wash and rinse is all that is needed. This overnight face mask builds gradually, so you can reapply nightly until you achieve the perfect tone that you want.

It’s machine washable for many uses, and conveniently keeps tanner off your hands.
If you think you need to choose between a nourishing skin lotion and a self-tanner, think again. Skin Authority’s Vitamin-Enriched Sunless Tanner gives you the best of both, in a fragrance-free formula that exfoliates while it tans, and will leave you with a natural looking skin tone that lasts. Infused with Vitamin C and Vitamin E, this sunless tanner helps boost your body’s natural ability to generate Vitamin D and keeps your skin looking soft, smooth, and healthy.

Instantly refresh and moisturize your face at the same time you build up a stunning summer glow with St. Tropex Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Face Mist. Light and gentle, this sunless tanning face mist is enriched with antioxidants and natural ingredients that will repair, restore, and rejuvenate the look and feel of your face while the gradual tanning effects build with each application. It’s also 100% vegan and won’t block your pores. You can also spray it on your hands and feet for a more complete top-to-bottom glow.
If a dramatic look is what you’re looking for, SKBC has a Dark Bronzing Mousse that can transform your skin tone to a deep, rich suntan-look with ease. All you need to do is apply to freshly cleaned and dry skin using SKBC’s tanner application mitt in steady, circular motions to ensure a smooth and even all-over tone boost on your face and body. A typical application of Dark Bronzing Mousse will last up to 7 days, and you can help the effects last even longer by ensuring your skin stays moisturized regularly.
This next self-tanner comes from down under. It’s made 100% ethically and comes in a package made from reclaimed ocean waste plastics, so you’ll feel as good as you look when you place your order from The Australian Glow. With natural ingredients such as hemp, green tea extract, vitamin E, aloe vera, witch hazel, cocoa, and goji berries, this Gradual Tanning Lotion is perfect for using every day to get a beautiful sun-touched skin tone, and keeping it looking great day after day. With each application, your skin will be moisturized and stay balanced as it works to regulate the natural oil production processes in your skin.
This self-tanning mousse takes the word ‘express’ seriously, giving you fast results and a noticeable tanning effect in just 1-3 hours after application, depending on the tone you desire. 1 hour will give you a subtle tan effect, 2 hours will be a more medium tone, and 3 hours will give you the darkest results.
