If you have stopped to read this, then congratulations, you have already made a step toward improving your skin by avoiding the tanning beds and considering sunless tanning products instead.
I have been using sunless tanning products for years and while I have a favorite there are many on the market that are effective and affordable.
Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel while quite a bit more expensive than some of the other sunless tanning products is very effective.
Depending on if you have a preference to lotions [Tanning lotion] or gels may help you decide.
Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel is a gel, and while it goes on smoothly and does not streak if you are used to lotions this will take some getting used to.
Neutrogena makes a very good product; Neutrogena MicroMist Tanning Sunless Spray. Once again, very different if you are used to lotions because this is a spray but if you can get past that it is extremely effective.
One feature of the Neutrogena MicroMist Tanning Sunless Spray is that the spray itself is not colored so you don’t have to worry about staining objects around you while you are putting it on. But don’t worry even though the product is colorless itself, it definitely produces a tan on your skin!
Mystic Tan makes a sunless tanning product called Mystic Tan UV-Free Spray-On Tanning. This product is quite pricey however it will definitely deliver the results you want and expect in a sunless tanning product.
However my most favorite sunless tanning product and one that I have been using for years is Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer. This sunless tanner is completely affordable at right around $7.00 for 7.5 ounces.
The features I enjoy with Jergens Sunless Tanning lotion is that it goes on like a regular lotion so it hydrates my skin. The color appears after one to two applications and the color doesn’t turn orange like some products tend to do.
