Fair Skin, Flawless Tan: Self-Tanner for Fair and Pale Skin

For those with fair skin, achieving a tan can feel like an impossible feat. Sunburns and freckles may be the only results of a day spent in the sun. Enter, Self-Tanner! Self-tanner can provide a safe and effective way to achieve a sun-kissed glow without the harmful effects of UV rays or tanning beds.

But before hitting “checkout” on the first self-tanner that you may scroll across, you should know choosing the right self-tanner is important to avoid an unnatural or overly dark glow.

Still not convinced? Take a look at these before & afters using our medium shade on fellow PJB Babe Meghan Barnes.

Choosing the Best Self-Tanner for Fair Skin

If you have fair skin, it's important to choose a self-tanner that won't make you look orange or too dark. Don’t worry, PJB tanning products never leave you looking orange! So, focus on looking for self-tanners that are specifically designed for fair skin and have a light or medium shade.

It’s best to start with lighter self-tanning shades, or even a gradual tanner or tan extender. That way you can bask in a natural-looking bronze without worrying about going too dark!

Now that you’re bronzed and glowing, don’t forget to also keep your skin moisturized and protected from the sun! Self-tanner can provide a light base layer of sun protection due to DHA (it’s main ingredient). To maintain healthy and youthful skin though, especially for those with fair skin, it’s key to use SPF daily!
