Spring is one of our favorite seasons for plenty of reasons: new beauty launches, warmer weather, more frequent helpings of ice cream and glowy, sunkissed skin. While we’re not on board with basking in the sun unless we’re lathered in SPF from head to toe, we know many of our readers are looking to get their summer tan on. Contrary to popular belief, tanning doesn’t need to involve harmful rays or sunburns. Instead, we’re advocators of self-tanning as long as you use the right techniques and quality products like St. Tropez Pre Shower Mousse for the easiest application ever or L'Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion for an instant bronzy glow — and yes, using a mit is key.

Now that you have the information you need to make your most successful self-tan happen, we encourage you to check out our 10 favorite #SelfTannerFails from Twitter. We have a strong feeling some of you might be able to relate.

And if you’re still not entirely confident in your self tanning abilities (or just need to see how it’s done IRL) check out the below tutorial by beauty and lifestyle vlogger Jess Conte.
