At least we can look as if we’ve spent the Summer on St. Tropez (even if time will not allow us to) with these self-tanners we can’t live without. Smoother, firmer, brighter skin awaits! Here, 5 ways to get a sunless glow quickly, effortlessly, and effectively!

If you’re hesitant to try this St. Tropez In Shower tan, think again! This gradual tan actually works wonders on your skin in just 3 days. Apply in the shower, leave on for 3 minutes then rinse off! Brilliant!

BareMinerals came out with this faux body tan, and we have to say, it’s pretty amazing. The tanner leaves a bright glow on your skin that’s long lasting and smells pretty great too. For a darker tan, apply two layers before exfoliating!

We’re all about a drugstore steal, especially if it’s going to give us a flawless tan. Jergens Instant Sun Bronzer truly does give a natural glow to your skin that looks like you just walked off the beach. I mean, that’s what we’re striving for, right? This mousse dries in just 60 seconds after applying, and for best results, use Jergens Daily Tan Moisturizer and In Shower Scrub as well!

The key to any great tan?  Exfoliated skin!  Just remember that the best way to get a streak free, even application is to make sure you exfoliate before you apply.  Use one of KF’s faves!  Shop it here at
