Self-Tanners That Won’t Make You Look Orange

Welcome to the dead of winter, where dewy, skin-kissed skin goes to die. Literally. The worst part, though, is that no matter how many night creams we slather on, we’re only going to get even pastier. Is it June yet?
The fair-skinned among us might be tempted to step into a tanning salon for a quick complexion fix, but leathery, wrinkled skin is never a good look. Luckily, there is a way to get our glow back while we wait for summer to make its way back were it around: self-tanners! Previously regarded as the quickest way to turn into an Oompa Loompa, beauty brands — both luxe and drugstore — have upped the game on their bronzing formulas of late, making it easy to fake a subtle tan without sacrificing your skin’s health.
That’s why we rounded up eight lightweight, one-step self-tanning potions that won’t dare transfer onto your clothes or leave you a shade of a certain Jersey Shore cast member. From velvety mousse, easy-as-pie towelettes, and moisturizing gel formulas, click through to get your gams on our favorite no-streak self-tanners.
