8 Fabulous Self-Tanners (& How to Use Them!)

self tannerWe like to mock self-tanners that make people look like an Oompa Loompa, but after the laughter dies down, there's that uncomfortable truth: Lying out to get a suntan is playing with fire. Not only do you risk skin cancer, you also risk getting burned. And if you do it for years, you get lizard skin. Wouldn't you like your skin to look smooth and fresh well into your 50s? That's why self-tanners are no joke. They're getting better, we swear.

That said, the products that give you the best results coincidentally happen to be the most expensive. But all hope for a deeper summer glow is not lost. Here are 8 self-tanners for $25 and under that actually work.

i love the sun lab self tan spray and love sublime tan too. It's cheaper than going to the salon.

@amazzonia that moisturizer you use on your skin is FULL of chemicals too….just FYI!

@amazzonia… people wear sunblock NOT to prevent TANNING, but to prevent sun DAMAGE. Oh and people use a self tanner because they like the look of tanned skin.
