NEW YORK, NY April 10, 2018

When the warm weather approaches, so does our desire to wake up with a sun-kissed glow. From self-tanning products that gradually add color to those that enhance your natural color with a glow, we tend to think that tanning products are solely for the fairest of skin tones. If you’re a brown girl and love your chocolate skin, whether it be caramel, milk or dark, self-tanners can add luminosity to your already milky complexion. These are the best self-tanners to give dark skin a healthy glow without looking ashy.
