With summer upon us, many of us are in search of the perfect sun-kissed glow. Keeping your skin’s best interest in mind, it’s time to nix the tanning beds and hours in the sun for cruelty-free and vegan sunless tanners. These self tanners can be applied in the comfort of your own home and are easy to use without streaky results and orange palms. They will give the illusion that you just got back from the islands–without having to walk out the door.
These Cruelty-Free Self Tanners Will Give You That Perfect Faux Summer Glow
Eco Tan’s ingredients include cacao, herbs, flower extract, fruit extract and chamomile, which ensure that you will have a bronze glow without the fear of turning orange. It is free from synthetic ingredients and is the kindest tanner for your body. Its clear solution does not stain your hands and develops over eight hours, leaving you with skin that glows the kind way. Its also free of GMOs and fragrance, and is cruelty-free and vegan, of course.
My longtime holy grail, St. Tropez makes self tanning easy and stress-free. They have a variety of shades and solutions, such as their 3 Hour Express, Gradual Shower Tanner, and Bronzing Mousse. Many of their sunless tanners come with a color guard, which allows you to see the color as you apply it. This eliminates any streaks later after it dries. 100% vegan and made from naturally derived DHA, it adjusts to your skin tone and provides an intense, even tan.
Too Faced Royal Oil Coconut Oil Body Bronzer
Made from coconut oil and mangosteen fruit, which is filled with antioxidants, Too Faced Royal Oil Coconut Oil Body Bronzer gives your skin the perfect bronze sheen. The ingredients allow for it to adjust to different skin tones, and it nourishes and conditions your skin so that your tan lays evenly. It can be applied to both your face and body. It dries quickly and does not transfer to clothing, making it perfect for a quick application before you head out for the day. The best part about this bronzer is that it can also be applied to your hair for a subtle shimmer and to seal dry ends. It is not only cruelty-free and vegan, but it is gluten-free and does not include any harmful parabens.
