Our Top 5 Self-Tanner Suggestions

As the winter season approaches it’s time to consider self-tanning. Whether you’re located in a warmer climate or in the colder states, using a self-tanner is one of the most effective ways to get that perfect dewy glow.

Below are the best self-tanners that our Priv team loves to use:

1. Isle of Paradise: Self-Tanning Drops

Isle of Paradise’s products are made with color-correcting technologies to help even out skin tone for the most natural tan ever.

The best part of this product is that it is so easy to use! Add one to six drops to your favorite moisturizer, mix together, and apply to skin. The more drops used the deeper your tan. Be sure to wash your hands after applying.

2. St. Tropez: Purity Vitamins Mist

A lightweight, easy-to-use clear self-tanner that can be spritzed onto skin to create a quick sun-kissed glow

First prep your skin by exfoliating and moisturizing dry areas such as your hands, feet, ankles and wrists. Spritz all over your body using a tanning applicator mitt to blend and ensure you don’t miss any patches. Sit back and relax for the next 4-8 hours while your tan develops into a medium golden tan.

3. Tan Luxe: THE FACE Illuminating Self-Tan Drops

A cruelty and toxin-free concentrate transforms your favorite moisturizer, serum, or face oil into a bespoke self tanner.

Triple Tan Technology combines a blend of organic tanning actives, which work with your skin tone to deliver a radiant, natural-looking tan. This product consists of raspberry seed oil, aloe vera and vitamin E resulting in a softer-looking, nourished skin with a streak-free finish.

4.Fake Bake: Flawless Self-Tan Liquid

This self-tanning product is applied in effortless gliding strokes for an alluring, streak-free golden glow in 6 to 8 hours. Rinse off guide color with warm water after development time. Re-apply once a week to extend life of tan.

5. BaliBody: Self Tanning Mousse

This self tanner is enriched with nourishing oils and 100% natural DHA for smooth, hydrated and perfectly bronzed skin.

For a light tan, wash off after 1 hour. For a medium to dark tan, leave for up to 4 hours. For the deepest tan leave for 8 hours before showering.

Things to keep in mind when using self-tanning products:
  • The best kind of mitt to use is a velvet one because it causes no streaks and doesn’t soak up any product.
  • Exfoliate before applying the product it will help to avoid blotches.
  • Use a moisturizer daily to prolong your tan.
  • When applying with mitt go in circular motions in the same direction.
