Self-tanner is a quick, safe, and (sometimes) easy way to get a sun-kissed glow without spending hours under the sun’s harmful UV rays or in an equally skin-unfriendly tanning bed.

All self-tanners work differently: some give skin an immediate bronze boost while others develop more gradually. While they should work easily, some self-tanners can be sticky and hard to apply evenly. And, let’s face it, a streaky self-tan looks far from natural.

From lotions to wipes to mousses, there are so many self-tanner options out there. We’ve done the heavy lifting to find the best self-tanners that will leave your skin glowy and streak-free. Keep reading for 9 products that’ll give you a healthy glow fast.
