The 9 Best Self Tanners for Women Over 50

Get your glow without the sun!


Warm weather is at our finger tips, and having some color when summer it arrives can make you feel fabulous. Unfortunately, laying out in the sun in your swimsuit or baking in a UV-light bed isn’t the safest for your skin. 

With the rates of melanoma at an all-time high and the risk of diagnosis increasing as you age, avoiding direct exposure to sun’s harmful rays is more important than ever. If it’s the sun’s warmth that makes you happy, use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply it every two hours, or immediately after drying off if you’ve been in water.

If it’s the bronze color you want, there are easy ways to develop a tan that will keep your skin youthful and free of damage. We found the best self tanners including oils, mists, lotions, towels, and liquids that will deliver a stunning, sunny glow you can rock safely all summer long.
