Stay Tan for Fall with Bronzing Gels

Bronzing gel is a fantastic way to get a hint of sun-kissed color without the damaging effects of the sun's rays. You can wear them alone or mix them into your favorite foundation or body lotion, and the color can be as subtle or as intense as you like. To give yourself a sunny glow going into autum, just dot a small amount of the gel onto your cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose, then blend with your fingertips in an outward motion. Here are some of my favorite bronzing gels.


Clarins Sheer Bronze Self Tanning Hydrating Gel For Face is satiny soft, with a magnificent caramel color and iridescent highlights. It has a combined effect of giving you instant color like a bronzer and within two hours working its self-tanning magic to create a natural looking tan. Buy it here for $28.

Becca Translucent Bronzing Gel is a very sheer and lightweight water-based gel which also helps hydrate the skin. It's not greasy, and it can be used on both the body and face. Buy it here for $34.

To see more gel bronzers,

Laura Mercier Bronzing Gel blends quickly and easily while leaving the skin refreshed. The sheer formulation enhances a tan, adds a warm glow, and works for all skin types and shades. Buy it here for $30.

Smooth and delightful, Stila Sun Gel is streakless and very easy to apply to the face and body. It's available in one richly bronze color with golden sheen. Buy it here for $24.

I have olive color skin. It takes very little sun for me, and no bronzers. I stay tanned year around.

bonne bell has a great bronzer that i love. my mom reccomended it to me first, saying that she used it when she was my age, so I was a little scared at first, but I love it now.
