Get Your Tan From a Can

Self-tanners make getting a healthy glow as easy as rubbing on the perfect shade

One of the perks of living in the Sunshine State: Sun, sand and surf.

One of the setbacks: You’re expected to have a healthy glow year-round.

Now that temperatures are transitioning into summer, there’s more pressure than ever to show off sun-kissed skin. The way we see it, you’ve got two options: Either sizzle in the sun like a slab of bacon on the stove or fake it ‘till you make it to that perfect tint of tan.

That first option, of course, will not only leave you looking like charred meat, you could also suffer series ailments, like skin cancer and wrinkles, to your epidermis. And even if you keep it covered with at least an SPF 30, it’s not always easy to get an even-Steven tan.

Trade that beach bag in for option number two, and let tan-in-a-can make you a golden goddess—or a pale Polly with just a hint of hue.

Believe it or not, self-tanners have come a long way since the last time you probably gave them a spray. Try these tanners on for a splash of color and easy application.
