Summer is officially in full swing, which means most of us will be spending much more time outdoors. From long days at the beach to lounging by the pool to hanging in the park with a good book, there is endless sunshine to be enjoyed. So much time outside leaves plenty of room for opportunities to tan—there’s nothing better than an earned golden bronze glow. A real tan somehow always looks better than even the best self-tanner (maybe because you know how much you enjoyed earning it).
The key to maximizing your time in the sun is a good tanning oil. Now we’re not talking about the old school baby oil previous generations used, we’re talking about tanning oil that contains SPF to protect your skin while also enhancing your glow. Protecting your skin is of the utmost importance, but you can still get a deep bronze tan while wearing sun protection. Always apply an SPF before heading out in the sun, and remember to reapply throughout the day.
A good tanning oil will offer both SPF and skin nurturing ingredients to keep your skin protected and hydrated. Modern skincare and sun care brands are offering products that do just that, so you can feel safe and confident spending all day outdoors working on your tan. Brands like Sol de Janeiro and Moroccanoil have tanning oils that marry skincare and sun protection—and their products both happen to smell amazing! Sun Bum‘s tanning oil contains 4 different types of oils (argan, marula, coconut, and avocado) to keep your skin nourished while in the sun. And Bali Body‘s formula is famous for the deep bronze color the oil gives you—plus the beautiful sheen your skin has while wearing it.
