A Better Way to Bronze

Enhance your summer glow with safe natural tanners.

“Sunless tanner” is one of those oxymorons that makes me giggle. But as a redhead with the accompanying fair skin and freckles, I’ve come to understand that faux tanning isn’t such a bad thing. Especially if it’s done safely.

On these summer days when it seems like my bright white stomach may blind the eyes of my fellow beachgoers, I’m faced with two choices: trade the bikini for a full-body wetsuit or apply a coating of a natural self tanner -- a sunless tanner, if you will.

Here are my two current picks for a quick and easy glow:

1. Lavera Sunless Tanning Lotion, $29 (5 oz.)
Lavera hits the mark with a tanner that’s chock full of organic ingredients that are seriously moisturizing: think macadamia nut, jojoba and sunflower oils. Scented with nothing more than essential oils, this tanner delivers a natural-looking tan without leaving you in a stinky cloud of synthetic fragrance. Lavera gets extra points for adhering to Germany’s strict BDIH guidelines for natural cosmetics.

2. Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Sunless Tanner, $11 (4 oz)
Alba has been my go-to brand for natural sunscreen for years, so it makes sense to trust the company with my sunless tanning needs. Alba’s version is made with luscious, naturally derived ingredients like green tea, ginkgo biloba and chamomile. It’s also paraben-free.

Remember that self-tanners have no sun protection, so be sure to slather on the SPF before heading into the rays.
