Not to be a downer, but there is no such thing as a healthy tan. It’s an oxymoron. The only way to tan responsibly is to fake it with bronzer.
Applying the stuff is easy and even the pastiest of complexions can get believable-looking color. Just pick one that’s no more than two shades darker than your base color (unless you want to look like a Real Housewife).
Want an all-over glow? Rub a liquid or gel formula onto your entire face, neck and décolletage. Prefer to look slightly sun-kissed? Brush powder or cream onto the high points of your face—cheekbones, bridge of your nose, temples, and chin—and blend well. Fake it ’til you make it with these awesome bronzers.
