Olay Total Effects Touch of Sun Moisturizer ($18.99) is an anti-aging daily moisturizer with subtle self-tanning properties. This is good for those who just want to slightly brighten and tan the face, but do not want an actual self-tanner. I find gradual and subtle self-tanners to have a great effect on brightening up the skin, and they do not require nearly as much maintenance as regular self-tanners need. You should see a noticeable color difference within three applications, and after a week, you will get to the darkest you will get. Similarly, Olay Touch of Sun UV Defense Regenerating Lotion ($18.99) works like the moisturizer does, only this has SPF 15 in it.

Olay Touch of Sun Daily Body Lotion ($7.99) comes in light/medium and medium/dark, depending on how deep and dark you want your tan to be. For those who do not want to apply a regular self-tanner after a shower (which can take an hour or two from start to finish), try this moisturizer with just a touch of self-tanner that works while you sleep. Within two or three applications, you should notice that your skin tone has deepened slightly. From there, you can control how dark you want to be or how dark you want to stay. If you want to go darker, apply nightly. If you want to maintain your current color level, apply every other night or less.

Black Ore = Dark Soul + Golden Lemon; Femme-fi = Shroom; Tiger Tiger = Brew; Supreme = Chai

DermaQuest DermaGlow Self Tanner – Face ($22.00) is a a self-tanner formulated with erythrulose, which is a natural-based keto-sugar that helps to give you that temporary bronzed look using a non-toxic chemical reaction with the skin. It also includes DHA, which is a color additive, that darkens the skin, and it is considered safe for most skin types. Color develops within fifteen minutes, and you can add additional layers to darken as you see fit. I like that you can layer this product, because it means you can take your time and find a good color match for you.

It is important that if you’re going to self-tan your body, you should be aware of the state of color (or lack thereof) on your face! For me, my face is always fairly tan, since it sees the sun even in the wintertime, while my legs and body may be covered up for several months out of the year. Self-tanning for face generally isn’t a must-do for me, but I know that we have plenty of fairer ladies that could use a handy self-tanner for face! You know what’s great, though? Many self-tanners smell fairly chemical, but not DermaGlow! There is a pleasing coconutty scent that reminds of you of summer and the beach.
