Seasonal Tanning Trends: What’s Hot This Summer?


As the temperatures rise and summer approaches, many of us are looking to achieve that perfect sun-kissed glow. Tanning trends evolve each year, influenced by fashion, health awareness, and new technologies. Here’s a look at what’s hot in the world of tanning this summer.

1. Natural, Healthy Glow

This summer, the emphasis is on achieving a natural, healthy-looking tan. Gone are the days of deep, dark tans that look unnatural. The trend is shifting towards a subtle, sun-kissed glow that enhances your natural skin tone. This look is achieved through gradual tanning lotions and sprays that build up color over time, allowing you to control the depth of your tan.

2. Self-Tanners with Skincare Benefits

Innovative self-tanning products now offer more than just a tan. This summer, expect to see self-tanners infused with skincare benefits, such as hydrating hyaluronic acid, anti-aging peptides, and skin-nourishing vitamins. These products not only give you a beautiful tan but also improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.

3. Eco-Friendly and Vegan Tanning Products

With increasing awareness of environmental issues and a growing demand for ethical beauty products, eco-friendly and vegan tanning products are becoming more popular. Brands are now offering self-tanners made from natural, sustainably sourced ingredients, free from harmful chemicals and animal testing. This trend allows you to achieve a gorgeous tan while staying kind to the planet and animals.

4. Customizable Tans

Customization is key this summer. Tanning products that allow you to tailor your tan to your desired shade and undertone are in vogue. Whether you prefer a light glow or a deeper tan, customizable tanning drops and mix-in boosters let you create a personalized tan that complements your unique skin tone.

5. Tanning Oils with SPF

Tanning oils have made a comeback, but with a modern twist. Today’s tanning oils often include SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays while enhancing your tan. Look for oils that offer broad-spectrum protection and nourishing ingredients to keep your skin hydrated and radiant.

6. Spray Tanning for Special Occasions

Spray tanning remains a popular option, especially for special occasions like weddings, vacations, and parties. This summer, look for spray tanning services that offer quick-drying, long-lasting formulas with a natural finish. Many salons now use advanced airbrush techniques to ensure even coverage and a flawless look.

7. Sunless Tanning Mousses and Foams

Sunless tanning mousses and foams are gaining traction due to their ease of application and quick results. These products are designed to be streak-free, providing an even tan without the hassle. They often come with tinted formulas that show where the product has been applied, ensuring a smooth, even application.

8. After-Sun Care

Maintaining your tan is just as important as achieving it. After-sun care products, such as cooling gels, moisturizing lotions, and tan extenders, help soothe sun-exposed skin and prolong the life of your tan. Look for products that contain aloe vera, coconut oil, and other hydrating ingredients to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

This summer, the focus is on achieving a natural, healthy tan that complements your skin tone while prioritizing skincare and environmental consciousness. Whether you opt for gradual self-tanners, customizable tanning products, or eco-friendly options, there are plenty of ways to stay on-trend and protect your skin. Remember to always use SPF to protect against harmful UV rays, and enjoy a beautiful, sun-kissed glow all summer long!
