We all know there are countless self tanner options out there–from lotion, cream, or mousse to spray tans and tanning beds. These products might give you that perfect glow you are going for, but are they safe for your skin and your health?

I almost gave up on finding a safe, non-toxic self tanner. Then I stumbled across Beauty by Earth.

This company has THE BEST self tanner I’ve ever used in my life.

No need for harsh UV rays or dangerous chemicals to get that perfect glow you’re after. This self tanner lotion is all you need! (And in case you’re wondering, nope. It doesn’t look orange!)

Here’s what Beauty by Earth has to say about their products: “At Beauty by Earth, we’re obsessively natural! We believe in beauty products crafted with love and care, using only the best natural and organic ingredients. We’re passionate about the #cleanbeauty movement and helping people and the planet thrive, because we all need affordable, safe, non-toxic products that actually work.”

I followed their directions and it turned out perfectly! I shaved, then waited a day to exfoliate and shower before I used the lotion. The “after” pics are from the day after I used the self tanner, but the color change happens in a few hours! (I wanted to take pics in daylight, so I waited a day.) Check out my before and after photos. This stuff is the REAL DEAL, guys.

Here’s a step-by-step of how to get the best results for your tan, taken from Beauty by Earth‘s website:

1. Exfoliate

“Ready to tan? Start by exfoliating your skin. Use a loofah, exfoliating pad, or a body scrub to gently get rid of dead skin cells – our self tanning application kit will give you all the tools you need for a perfect tan. This will help make sure your tan lasts as long as possible. It’s also a good idea to paint your nails before applying your tanner – unless you like orange-y nails, that is. Give your feet a little moisturizing love beforehand to help make sure they don’t end up darker than your body. Finally, wait a day or two after shaving before using our self tanner. If you apply to newly shaved skin, all of your pores will show up as little orange dots.”

2. Apply self tanner

“When you’re ready, apply a thin layer of natural self tanner evenly over your legs, arms, torso, and face (avoid your eyes). Be careful when working on loose areas of skin (such as the elbows, feet, hands and knees). These areas are more absorbent, so it’s easy to overdo it and end up with dark spots. Wearing latex gloves can help you get a more even tan, and will prevent colored palms if you don’t have a mitt. If you decide not to wear gloves, wash your hands immediately after tanning.”

3. Maintain that glow!

“Your skin should reach your desired color within six hours. If it doesn’t, reapply the following day. We find that reapplying every 4-7 days is best for maintaining color, but do what works best for you. Enjoy your sunny, golden skin!”
