Best self tanner cremes and gels can help you achieve a deep, dark, natural-looking tan without having to bake in the sun's unhealthy rays. The best self tanning products are easy to apply, provide a nice rich color that doesn't look streaky and they don't leave an icky smell behind on your skin. This list of the best self tanners includes quick-tanning products that typically get rave reviews from beauty magazines and users. Do you have a favorite self tanner? If you see it on the list, vote for it! If it's not on the list, please add it.

A good self tanner can be used year-round to give you a healthy-looking glow, even during the darkest days of winter. Better yet, you aren't exposing your skin to harmful UV rays that cause premature aging and put you at risk for skin cancer. Think it's impossible to get a beautiful sun-kissed look without slathering on tanning lotion and cooking yourself in the sun? Think again. Self tanners have come a long, long way in recent years.
