The most important thing you can do to prevent premature skin aging is staying out of the sun. But does that mean you have to miss out on the insanely flattering effects that a tan can have? Not at all! It can make you look younger, thinner and generally happier. So if you’re staying out of the sun, replicate the glow by using powder and liquid products for both face and body. Here’s a list some of my favorite bronzers I’ve used over the years. Some are lotions, other are powders, and some just for face or body and some for both.

  1. Bobbi Brown Face & Bronzing Duo – This powder is fabulous for both face and body. I like it for the décolletage during warm summer nights!
  2. Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer – This lotion looks amazing on limbs. Rub on arms and legs for a slenderizing, shimmery effect.
  3. Benefit Sun Beam – Dot this on the top of your cheekbones and along your brows to define and shine!
  4. Benefit Hoola Bronzer – My favorite matte bronzer ever, this powder makes you look like you’ve been in San Tropez for three weeks.
  5. Nars Bronzing Powder – With just the perfect amount of shimmer, this bronzer doubles as a gorgeous skin-loving blush.
  6. Michael Kors Leg Shine – This comes in a solid stick, like a deodorant. Glide up and down legs for a light tint that makes legs shine.
  7. Lorac TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer – I love this for covering imperfections like cellulite and spider veins! It also moisturizes, so you get a moisturizer that bronzes. What’s there not to love?
