Your self-tanning excuses end here
“I hate the sticky feel of lotions.” Try an oil – these products are ultra-hydrating and easy to apply because they are often tinted. Vita Liberata Marula Dry Oil Self Tan ($65, at Sephora, sephora.ca) contains marula oil. Rich in omega fatty acids, it plumps skin.
“That smell, though.” That’s DHA, a molecule that reacts with skin proteins to give you an instant Gisele vibe. Try St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse ($54, at drugstores and mass-market retailers). The company hired luxe fragrance house Givaudan to create a fresh scent that works with the notes in DHA, thereby burying that signature odour in a bouquet of green apple, lavender, rose, tuberose and musk.
“My tan disappears faster than a Kylie Lip Kit.” Try Rodan + Fields Essentials Foaming Sunless Tan ($30, at rodanandfields.com). It contains narcissus-bulb extract, which slows skin-cell turnover, keeping you bronzed for longer.
Try a body foundation If the thought screams OTT, hear us out. A waterproof and sweatproof formula that covers imperfections and won’t rub off during that long-weekend pool party or your BFF’s wedding will bring you more peace of mind than that Groupon meditation class ever did. We like Make Up For Ever Water Blend Foundation ($54, at Sephora, sephora.ca), a water-gel hybrid saturated with micro-pigments that dries to a catwalk-ready finish.
