5 Easy Self-Tanners to Try

Tanning for most Latinas seems to be a non-issue. Many of us don’t burn, so skin cancer doesn’t even cross our minds. But it should: anyone can develop skin cancer, no matter their skin color. In fact, it’s even more serious for us because of the lack of self-monitoring – skin cancer is often detected too late and is frequently fatal for Latinas.

As part of skin cancer awareness month, we’ve rounded up the best self-tanning products to get that bronzed look without the sun. Que bonita! 

1. Self-Tanners: L'Oreal

Loreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Gel

This gel leaves a cooling sensation on the skin, and is super-easy to apply thanks to the spray bottle. It also has a citrus scent (so you don’t have to endure that chemical smell!).
