I’ve always been hesitant to self tan my face. I’ve done my body, but the consequence of having a bad outcome on my face never seemed worth it. Plus, I’ve been more than happy using a tinted moisturizer
. It does a pretty good job at evening skin tone and adding a slight warmth to my skin.
However, now that the glow we all get from being outdoors during the summer is starting to fade, it may be time for something more substantial like a self tanner for your face. My pick is Kate Somerville’s Self Tanning Pads (12 for $45). You slip two fingers into the sleeve of the neat little pad, peel off the seal and apply in circular motions. The formula delivers believable color, but I give major props to the application method because the pads give you total control and are mess free. So the next time you think about putting some color on your face, you may want to consult these.
