We promise you won’t wind up orange or streaky.
Pack up those puffer coats and bust out your cutoff shorts (or at least a modest cropped jean) because the temperatures are *finally* taking a turn. And if you dig a safe bronze glow (though we love pale skin just as much!), self-tanner has come a long way. You no longer have to fear telltale streaks, unpleasant aromas, or a bizarrely orange hue. Still, we recommend doing a patch test before you apply any of these formulas, and always scrub your hands with soap after application (or use a tanning mitt to apply). Whether you want a hint of color or a just-back-from-Tahiti glow, these are the 13 best tanning lotions we’ve found this year.
