Help! I Need a Golden Glow

I’m so tired of having pale, winter skin. I need to know what the best tan lotions are that make you look bronze, without reapplying all the time. What are the best products?
 
Go you for wanting to go the fake bake route. We’ve rounded up a few of our fave, easy-to-use tan-in-a-can goodies. Here are the best ways to get a glow at home.
 
Exfoliating before applying a self-tanner is a rule that most people don’t follow, which leads to uneven tans (ew, streaks!). We love this two-in-one, which buffs and bronzes at the same time. Hello, multi-tasking.
 


Getting a spray tan at a salon can be expensive, so try an at-home spray bottle that will last for a bunch of uses. We swear by bottles of Fake Bake. It’s pricier than drugstore varieties, but  it’ll give ya  a rich  just-back-from-vacay hue.
 

Fake Bake, $25, fakebake.com

If your skin is very fair, gradually building tan is the way to go. Slather on a glow lotion, instead of your normal moisturizer. Perf—and way cinchy.  Don’t forget thet sunscreen!
