Everything you need for the perfect sans-sun summer glow from Bioderma, Rodial, Jergens, Sephora and Avon!

Bioderma Photoderm Autobronzant Moisturising Tanning Spray - 150ml - $19.95 - offers an alcohol-free mist with a cleverly designed nozzle that allows the spray to be used from any angle, including upside down, for perfect coverage that creates natural, uniform colour and a beautifully bronzed glow while moisturizing the skin.

Available at Murale as well as drugstores across Canada.
Rodial Brazilian Tan Clear - 150ml - $45 - available in Clear - a non-tinted, extremely lightweight formula that dries quickly and evenly without blocking the pores that provides a sun-kissed glow for fair to medium skin; and Dark - with a silky texture and improved formula for a deep, exotic tan that lasts up to 10 days.

Available now at Hudson's Bay and Murale stores across Canada.
If you aren't in a hurry and don't mind waiting a few days for your glow to appear:

Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days To Glow Moisturizer - 120ml - $12.99 - in 2 shades: Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan - with a fast-acting formula that gradually darkens your skin a full shade in just 3 days. What's really great about it is the odour-blocking technology it contains to block the sunless tan odour rather then trying to mask it with heavy perfume as other products do.

Available now at drug, grocery and mass retailers across Canada.

Of course a great looking tan is all about the prep: 

If you shave or wax your legs, do it the day before applying tan so you will not have to shave on top of a fresh fake tan; do some crazy exfoliating in the shower which will help with a smooth application; and before applying the self tanner, lightly moisturise elbows, knees and any dry areas on the body to help avoid dry orange-y patches!

Sephora Everything Under The Sun Tanning Set - $15 - includes all the essentials for achieving a beautiful golden glow: the exfoliating mitt preps the skin for self-tanner; the application mitt ensures flawless, streak-free coverage and protects the palms from unwanted residue; and the self tanner remover sponge is designed to remove unwanted product.

Available at Sephora and

After all that work getting your glow, you're going to want to help it last as long as possible - after bathing, pat skin dry with your towel as vigorous drying will scrub off the tan and moisturise your tan daily to lock in hydration and help your tan to fade naturally. I like:

Avon Skin So Soft Aqua Express Moisturizing Body Milk - 250ml - $9.99 - offers lightweight, time-released hydration with watermint oil, shea butter and vitamin E that locks in moisture to smooth and soften skin and a fresh watery citrus scent to relax you.

Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at
