    1. Bioderma Photoderm Autobronzant Moisturizing Tanning Spray, $20
    If you’re a self-tanner newbie, Bioderma’s self-bronzing mist takes away the intimidation factor by letting you experiment a subtle wash of wash of colour. What’s more, misting your way to a bronzed body means you don’t have to worry about streaking or patchiness. Micro-diffusing sprays are quick to dry, saving your clothes and sheets from telltale stains.

    2. Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting BB Balm, $22
    BB fans rejoice! This powder-form variation nourishes your skin as it boosts your glow. It contains all the benefits of a traditional BB cream including antioxidants to help moisturize and improve your skin’s clarity.

    Glow Tip: For just a hint of bronze, apply where sunlight naturally hits your face–forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin.

    3. Quo Mega Bronzer, $20
    Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple. Quo’s no-muss, no-fuss bronzer delivers a dash of sun-kissed colour with a matte, powdery. No need to stock up, either–the super-sized compact will last well through the spring and summer months.

    Glow Tip: For added definition, use a brush to apply bronzer in the shape of a “3” on the sides of your face (on your temples, cheekbones and jawline).

    5. Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer, $14
    Looking for an allover, believable-looking glow but don’t have time to build a gradual tan? Try using a bronzing moisturizer right after you step out of the shower for instant hydration and a soft wash of colour. This moisturizer works best for last-minute prep before big events like a wedding or girls’ night out.

    Glow Tip: Exfoliate your skin thoroughly before application to ensure even, spot-free results.

    7. Artdeco Illuminating Shimmer Cream, $11
    Shimmer creams are the perfect choice for creating an all-over, natural-looking glow. This cream contains micro-pearls that catch the light, illuminating and defining anything from cheeks to décolletage. It’s a great alternative for anyone looking for a look of delicate touch of warmth instead of a full-blown bronze. Note: Limited edition compact sold separately.

    8. Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Beautifying Foundation, $58
    Imagine Guerlain’s cult-fave Terracotta bronzer in liquid foundation form. This foundation is the perfect antidote to perk up dull, winter-worn skin. Use a brush or beauty blender to apply onto your face and neck for instant healthy-looking skin.

    Glow Tip: For uniform coverage, warm the foundation on the back of your hand then use a sponge applicator to apply it to your face.

    9. Chanel Les Beiges All-In-One Healthy Glow Fluid, $48
    Tanner-phobes will love Chanel’s multi-action fluid, which creates a noticeable but not-quite-tanned glow. The combination of a powder and a gel lets it melt right into your skin, resulting in a #nofilter worthy finish.

    10. Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster, $30
    If you’re afraid of using self-tanner on your face, try incorporating a glow-boosting oil into your moisturizer instead. Dispense 2-3 drops of oil into your palm along with a few pumps of moisturizer, mix well, and apply. This glow booster is small but mighty: we saw results immediately with just a drop hours after our first use.

    Glow Tip: If you have a fairer complexion, stick to a maximum of 2 drops if you’re looking to enhance your tan and just 1 to maintain it. Try doing a test patch on the back of your hand to see exactly how much product you’ll need.
