With the temps warming up, it’s time to start thinking about getting that perfect bronze body without all the dangers of actual sun exposure of course.

St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse ($31.98, from Beauty Brands) is perfect for anyone looking to get a natural-looking, full body streak-free glow. The best part? The mousse is uniquely formulated to work with your natural skin tone, delivering a custom glow to every type of skin.

If you want to go a little subtler, test out the trend on your face with a bronzer like the Laura Geller Bronze-n-Brighten ($33). A line new to Beauty Brands, Laura Geller is known for her pigmented eye shadows, blushes and bronzers. This product features swirled color-corrective pigments that create a natural looking tan with a radiant finish.

If all of this sounds a little too DIY, a professional spray tan is always an option. Bronze & Beauty in Prairie Village specializes in airbrush tanning, which allows for an even natural tan, in a color customized to your skin tone. Go for a face spray ($15), just legs ($20) or full body ($35).
