Darkskin girls can’t glow?

What? What a dumb myth! Listen, we glow throughout the year. However, sometimes we want to step it up and be luminous! How can you do that?


Tanning beds aren’t my favorite. Celebrities from the gorgeous Kelly Rowland to the soul legend Toni Braxton have stated they love to tan! You know their melanin is on 1000! But, we think self-tanners are the best! Some brands don’t necessarily target towards deeper complexions but who said we can’t use the products?

Here are our favorite tanners!

Lancôme is known to embraces us chocolate girls so of course, they are on the top of the list. Their self-tanning bronzing gel smoothes on an even natural-looking tan. The best for a sexy sun-kissed glow.
