Your Perfect Summer Glow

There are two ways to go with DIY tans, each with distinct advantages. We’re here to make the whole decision process easier.

You’re a self-tanner person if you:

- Want the color to last longer. Some of our favorite formulas will keep you covered for five days.
-Wear lots of white; self-tanner is more transfer-resistant than bronzer.
-Are doing your entire body – if you are going to all that trouble, it’s really not that much more effort.
-Think there’s even the faintest possibility of rain, getting splashed by the pool, etc.

You’re a bronzer person if you:

- Require instant results. As in, “Oh, this skirt makes my legs look too pale.” (Precisely why many of us keep a tube in our desk drawers.)
- Find the idea of being able to wash something off essential.
- Are a true beginner and thus nervous about the streaking potential of self-tanners.
- Want to be able to customize your shade – or aren’t sure what intensity your need.
