A few days ago I came across this article about a black woman’s experience spray tanning and many of the comments were just ridiculous to me. I never knew tanning or self-tanning was such a controversial issue amongst Black people.
Regardless, I personally love getting as dark as I can in the summer! A nice tan makes my skin look much more even and glowed up which I love but I don’t want my black to crack anytime soon so I try to use self tanners rather than relying on the sun. I don’t see many other brown girls talking about self-tanners or what they use so today I’m sharing my three favorites that work great on brown and dark skin!
This product is a true drugstore gem, it gives me such a dark color and bronze glow.
This product is a gradual tanner that I love to use when I’m trying to even out my tan lines.
Definitely the priciest of the faves but I love the dark olive color that it gives. It gives immediate color that lasts for about a week. The mousse is very wet which can get messy if you’re not careful.
