The onset of winter is usually the time in which we wrap up in cosy blankets and fuzzy socks and as comforting as that sounds, the cold weather tends to put a dampener on our glowing bronze body goals. With the end of party season and the unprecedentedly low temperatures, it’s no wonder you would be reminiscing about warmer, sunny beach days. But just because we can’t physically be out swimming on the beach, doesn’t mean we have to leave our skin in the pale, colourless complexion that the winter usually creates. With that said, we’ve compiled our favourite self-tanning lotions and creams that are perfect for achieving a subtle bronze glow.
St. Tropez is one of the most sought after brands for self-tanning products. The versatile range of products for face and body will without a doubt give you the tan perfect for your specific skin tone. This specific product is extremely easy to apply and drys instantaneously, allowing you to get dressed right away. The colour develops subtly over time and will give you a natural glow.
If you’re a low maintenance girl who loves a tan, then this is the product for you. Replace this for your usual body lotion and use it every other day to achieve a gradual, subtle warm hue.
If you’re not looking for something too permanent, this easy to apply dry body oil is a perfect choice. With a formula that lasts up to three days, it’s perfect to use for special occasions or parties in which you need to add a little life to your complexion.
