The Best Self-Tanners For Your Face

Delicate areas such as your face should be shielded from the sun, but during warmer weather, it deserves to look sun-kissed, too! That's where sunless tanners come in. They're the safest form of a tan possible, and there are plenty of quality options made especially for the face. Our top picks include a cream, a towelette, and a tanning spray — all of which leave you looking naturally bronzed. Kirbie's manicure courtesy of MARS Salon.

Using a sunless tanner is the safest form of tanning because, as we all know, the sun and UV rays can cause serious damage to your skin, especially delicate places like your face. So we take out our three favorite sunless tanners for the face. They're natural looking, they're really easy to use, and they're the healthiest form of a tan possible. Plus no orange streaks, promise. If you're worried about breakouts, Beauty Silk tanning cream is gonna put all of those fears to rest. It rejuvenates your complexion and it's great for normal, dry and sensitive skin, because it hydrates. And it's free of things like parabens and sulfates, which can really irritate your skin. Plus, this one has a bronzer in it, so you can easily see where you're going to put it and get some instant color. But just know it takes about 2 to 4 hours for the tan to develop and then set. It's lightweight, and unlike a lot of tanning cream it doesn't have a harsh chemical smell. In fact, it barely has a scent at all. Tanning spray can be a hassle, but this one isn't your typical tan in a can. It's the most natural looking of the bunch, and it's really easy to use. The nozzle sprays out evenly and doesn't spot. Plus, it gives you instant color, so just spritz and go. No need to rub anything in. And I really like the olive undertones of this one because when you spray it on it looks bronze, not orange. And here's an easy application tip: put on makeup if you wear any and then spritz a little bit for a natural sun-kissed glow. Towelettes are an easy way to get a sunless tan without worrying about how much you apply, and a tanning towel gives you the right amount color every time, so it's perfect if you're a first time sunless tanner. This one doesn't streak at all. Just glide it on your face in circular motion let it dry. It comes in a convenient packet, so slip it in your purse, and use it any time you need. Also this one doubles as a body towel. So touch up your face, touch up your body, or just keep it at tan that you already have. Here's a final tip. Apply these sunless tanners at night so they set. That way nothing will wash away your tan. Keep watching for more beauty recommendations. I'm Kirbie and thanks for watching BellaSugar TV.
