If tanning beds aren’t for you, try one of these self tanners that are known to work!
L’OREAL Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer
I have also personally tried this self-tanning lotion as well, and definitely recommend it. It rubs on tan leaving your skin not only tan but also shiny/sparkly. This lotion should be used daily to achieve the desired level of tan and should be reapplied 1-2 times a week to maintain. Another great thing about this self tanner is that it does not leave a bad odor on your skin. Its retail price is $9.47.
Banana Boat Summer Color Self-Tanning Lotion
This is my personal favorite and I use it almost every week! It rubs on tan and if rubbed in the right way, it will not leave any streaks! It comes in several shades which allow you to pick whichever is right for you. Your desired level of tan will appear within 2 to 3 hours from the time it is first applied. The color will last up to 2 weeks, but if you want the color to really last it’s a good idea to reapply 1 to 2 times a week. Its retail price is $6.47 and can be found at most stores.
Neutrogena Micro-Mist Airbrush Sunless Tan
This hands free self tanner has been known to go on extremely evenly and give its user an all-over flawless tan. It also comes in several shades which allow you to choose whichever is right for you. Once it’s applied your sunless tan will develop in 2 to 4 hours and last for days. It is also scented so that it will not leave your skin smelling badly. Its retail price is $9.9.
Sephora Moisturizing Bronzing Body Lotion

Too Faced Tanning Bed in a Tube
Use this instant bronzing and self tanning lotion for a quick bronze fix. Or use it daily to build your sun-less tan.
