Bronzing Lotions You Should Be Using Now

by Coco + Creme

If you’re anything like me, when the sweatpants and boots came off this year you looked at your legs and feet like, um, where’s the melanin?

Once the sun is out, we don’t have time to wait until we can spend a day at the beach or go on an Island vacation to get a nice bronze glow. Yes, black girls tan but we don’t do tanning beds, which is why we love the bronzing lotions and products that are on the market to give us the summer color we want without exposure to too many sun rays. The thing people like about tans is that it evens out your skin tone and gives a gorgeous sunkissed glow that sometimes makes you skip the makeup all together and rock what you’ve got. If you’re ready for a little dewey color now, check out these products that will get you there quick.

Clarins Intense Bronze Self Tanning Tint

If you’re after immediate color, this intense bronze tint is the route to go. The product promises the type of tropical color that will have people asking if you just came back from vacation the next time they see you.

    I have never used one, and I don’t know if I would. I mean, I’m already dark skinned, like Gabrielle Union. I do have uneven color due to chicken pox as a child and body acne that I had as a teen, and I wonder if a self-tanner could help mask that a little bit. Other than that, I don’t know if there would be a point. I already have a tan and it is barely June. I like the way my face tans, but I wish it would help the dark spots…

    if you want glowing skin, exercise, stop eating junk, drink lots of water, eliminate all sugary and high caffeine drinks, eat vegetables and fruits, and get on a good consistent skincare regimen.

    I suffer from skin issues and have pigmentation frpm scars. I don’t have time to lay out in the sun for hours each day so I self tan. It works wonders. I use Jergens express glow but it leaves me a wee bit orangy. I’m going to try the clarins.
