3 Natural Ways to Fake Sun-Kissed Skin

Who doesn’t want beautiful glowing skin? Unfortunately, UV exposure can increase the risk of skin cancer and many of us have to protect ourselves by wearing sunscreen. I compare sunscreen to the old parent who crashes the college party. Simply put, lame. For all of the wonderful (and lifesaving) qualities of sunscreen it does have one major downside; preventing us from achieving that Hollywood-worthy tan. The good news is that there is more than one way to achieve beautiful skin indoors that doesn’t involve a tanning bed. Here are three great ways to get that natural sun-kissed look you want.


Cocoa Tanner

If you love chocolate, you’ll love this two-step homemade tanner. Choose your favorite lotion, preferably unscented, and place in a mixing bowl. Next, slowly stir in powdered cocoa into your lotion until you reach a desired color. Be sure to exfoliate well before application and apply evenly.


Tea Tanner

Much like the cocoa tanner, tea tanner is another great way to get instantly dark skin. Starting with a lotion base, boil hot water and soak four black tea bags for 10 minutes in a cup. Next, remove the tea bags and let the water cool completely. Slowly mix in the tea water until the desired color is achieved. As stated above, exfoliate before application.


Waterproof Bronzer

Yes, it is a thing, and yes, its glorious. For a quick and easy shade change, brush waterproof bronzer on your chest, legs, arms, and face. Focus on applying bronzer to the areas the sun would naturally tan, such as the sides of the forehead and the shins. For an extra pow, apply a little highlighter on top.
