As much as I love a good tan and the feeling of the sun hitting my face on a summer day, I am well aware of the damage that both will cause my skin. Instead of risking premature aging and other, much worse maladies, I have started to swear by self-tanner, especially products by St. Tropez. My newest discovery from the brand is its lightweight oil that gradually gives your face a hint of color over time. The results might be too subtle for some, but since I just aim to achieve that sun-kissed glow on my nose, cheeks and forehead, it's just right for me. With proper use, I can assure you there's no orange-y undertones, and it didn't cause me to break out or come with that unpleasant self-tanner smell. As an added bonus, the bottle is travel-sized, so I plan on toting it around as my beauty secret weapon this beach season.
St. Tropez Luxe Facial Oil, $35, available at Sephora.
