Hair & Beauty

There is now a variety of brown-girl friendly self tanners on beauty shelves. And with more choice available for WoC than ever, it’s important to swatch shades before you make a purchase to avoid disappointment.

“Where you can, try to test the shade first as some self tanners can appear ashy on darker skin tones at times,” Nicola Christopher, founder of Niksology Clinic and The Melanin Specialist advises.

From foaming body bronzers to tanning drops, there’s also a range of application methods to choose from to create your perfect look. For instance, if you would like an intense all-over colour, go for a foam formulation or lotion. Alternatively, if you’d like a more subtle self tan, body balms and tanning drops are a great choice for creating flawless results.
