Have beach Instagrams been taking over your feed this past week? Me too. It’s seriously depressing to be stuck in the cold, but I’ll let you in on my secret to get through the winter: self tanner.

Since I am naturally fair, I pretty much lose all color starting in November…unless I take some serious action. (I can’t pull off pale quite like Emma Stone or Nicole Kidman, but maybe someday.) So today, I am sharing with you some of my favorite self tanning products that make me feel like a bronze goddess, no matter what the weather is like outside.

Here are the key selection points:

1) It has to smell good (this is what knocks most of the products out).

2) It has to not wear off easily on clothing.

3) It needs to yield a nice natural color that does not look orange. *Ew!*

Click through the slideshow to check out my picks. And in case you’re wondering, my favorite brand of all time is Clarins. Their self-tanner oil can be mixed in with your own lotion or body cream and they also make a self-tanning mousse that’s unreal.

So go ahead, lather one of these on, and MAKE people think it was you uploading all of those #selfies from the pool bar. Let us know which one you try in the comments below. We love hearing from our readers!
