Tips for How to Nail a Faux Tan this Winter

Spring is just around the corner, so you may be craving the nice tan you had at the end of summer. Even though it still isn’t nice enough out to get a tan on your way to class and, since tanning beds are super dangerous, there are ways to get a faux tan right now.




Applying bronzer is simple and makes all the difference to looking tan in seconds. Swipe your face with your favorite bronzer in a “3” formation around your face and set it with setting powder, and you’re good to go.


Whiten Your Teeth

Whitening your teeth makes you look tanner believe it or not. Break out your Crest White Strips and whitening toothpaste. While this method may take a few days to notice a difference, the effects are longer lasting.


Bright Clothes

Break free from your dark, wintery clothes! Rocking bright clothes like pastels will give the illusion of being tan. Not only does this trick give you a faux tan, but it also gives you the chance to spice up your wardrobe.



Using a self-tanner definitely gives you the best and quickest results. However, it is very important to follow all of the directions on the package exactly. You don’t want to wind up orange or streaky. L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes are a great self-tanner that you simply swipe on your body and, suddenly, you have the perfect tan.



Getting a faux tan doesn’t have to consist of a tanning bed or flying to a tropical destination. With a few tricks, you can look tanned in seconds!
