Every bride wants to look like she just returned from some sun-kissed Caribbean beach on her big day. But what if your fair complexion is that of a traditional English rose, all creamy porcelain with hints of blush? You know that not even equator-strength sun will produce a natural tan. (Besides, you want to stave off sun-borne wrinkles forever!) Enter the self-tanner: Self-tanners from our mothers' era were renowned for taking the user on a visit to Oompa-Loompaland. Fortunately, modern self-tanners are much improved, but you still need a sherpa to guide you up the mountain of products that promise glow-worthy results. Check out our list of top self-tanners from Amazon, Sephora, Nordstrom and more that'll give brides a soft, natural-looking glow without sun exposure. But before you use any of them, a pro tip: To stay free of streaks, exfoliate 24 hours prior to use, smooth the product evenly over freshly cleansed skin, and wash immediately hands after use. Now, get glowing!
