3 Easy Ways to Get a Faux Glow This Spring

Sun Care & Self-Tanning

With winter winding down, it’s exciting to think about all the cute floral dresses and strappy sandals you’ll soon get to wear this spring. It’s been a while since your skin has seen the light of day, hasn’t it? And if you want to get a bit of golden color before showing off your bare arms and legs in your spring wardrobe, it’s time to turn your attention to self-tanner. In fact, self-tanner is the only safe way to get a tan—since you know that spending time in the sun without protection can lead to damage. Never used a self-tanner before? No problem! With so many different kinds of self-tanners out there—ranging from mists to towelettes to serums—finding your perfect match and adding it to your skin care routine is easy. And when you prep your skin before applying a self-tanner (exfoliation and using a moisturizer are a must!), this can help ensure your color goes on evenly, not streaky. Ready to get a golden glow—without stepping foot outside? Let’s get right to it! Here are three easy ways to get a fake tan before you break out your spring clothes!

1. Self-Tanning Mist
The L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Self-Tanning Mist has a quick dry formula and a 360-degree wide angle applicator. You can use the mist daily until you reach your desired level of tan and then once or twice a week to help maintain results.

Step 1: Cleanse and exfoliate your skin.

Step 2: Apply an oil-free moisturizer to any dry areas.

Step 3: Spray the mist slowly and continuously at arm’s length without rubbing it in.

Step 4: Use the self-tanning mist sparingly around your knees, elbows, and ankles.

Step 5: Let your skin dry before putting on any clothes (and opt for loose dark clothing when you are ready to get dressed!).

2. Self-Tanning Towelettes
The L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Self-Tanning Towelettes are streak-free, quick, and convenient. Bonus: Since they’re individually packed, you can easily use them when you’re traveling! You can use the towelettes daily until you reach your desired level of tan and then once or twice a week to help maintain results.

Step 1: Cleanse and exfoliate your skin.

Step 2: Smooth a towelette all over your body, unfolding as needed.

Step 3: Use it sparingly around your ankles, knees, and elbows.

Step 4: Wash your hands thoroughly when you’re done.

Step 5: Let your skin dry before getting dressed.

3. Self-Tanning Serum
The L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Self-Tanning Serum has a quick-dry formula and goes on streak-free. Use consecutively for three days to achieve your tan.

Step 1: Cleanse and exfoliate your skin.

Step 2: Apply an oil-free moisturizer, paying particular attention to dry areas.

Step 3: Apply the self-tanning serum evenly all over your body.

Step 4: Use sparingly around your knees, elbows, and ankles.

Step 5: Wash your hands thoroughly when you’re done—you don’t want them to get darker than the rest of your body!

Step 6: Let your skin completely dry before putting on any clothes.
