Another year, another wilted hope that we’ll see the sun before May again. You can tell just by looking at us how desperately we need some vitamin D in our lives—plus a stiff margarita or two. With a trip to the beach or an afternoon by the pool just out of reach for the next few weeks (with plenty of SPF in tow, of course), we’re looking to gain some color the safest and easiest way possible—self-tanning products.

For the uninitiated, most self-tanners consist of a nontoxic, colorless sugar called dihydroxyacetone, which interacts with your cells’ amino acids on the surface of the skin to give you a temporary tan safely. For us, that’s a two-for-one deal—radiance and health. So if you’re looking for a little bit of a *glow-up* to make it through the rest of winter, check out 11 of our favorite new at-home versions below!
