It’s been a long winter. Chances are you dreamt of that tropical getaway and it was just that—a dream. Regardless, if you're into fitness, it's likely you've had your muscles ready for the beach since the holidays. But, no matter how good your physique, a washed out complexion isn't going to look great come the hot months. So, it makes sense to think ahead, and spend a little time perfecting that golden glow while you still have time.

But, let’s be real here: we all know a little sun is good for you and a lot is not. Ten minutes a day is all that is suggested to get that good ol’ Vitamin D. Baking for hours in the sun or hitting a tanning bed may get you a temporary glow, but it can wreak havoc on your skin and health long term. Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults ages 25-29. Experiencing five or more blistering sunburns between the ages of 15 and 20 increases your melanoma risk by 80 percent and nonmelanoma skin cancer risk by 68 percent, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
But don't worry: it's easy to have a healthy (literally!) glow. These 10 self-tanning products will help you achieve that “not dead” look you love so much in the summer, without actually killing you.
