Self Tanners Safe for Pregnancy

As we breathlessly await a whole new season of spring dresses, short shorts and the long-forgotten tank top, we’re beginning to look at our pasty arms and legs in a new light. 

Frankly, we’d prefer to look at them in the dark.

The good news? There are some safe for pregnancy self-tanners. Here are three to learn and love:

1) Butter Me Brown Streak & Stain Free Bronzer: This bronzer includes wheat proteins that tighten the skin, and it’s DHA-free, making it OK to use during your entire pregnancy.

2) Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse: Tanners in mousse form are better than spray, because you eliminate the possibility of inhaling fumes.  This is a great product to add into your regimen after the first trimester, as it does include DHA.

3) Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer: If you have made the decision to go au naturel during your pregnancy, this faux-tan creating bronzer is for you. It creates that covetable “I spent the Winter in St Barths” look, without exposing you to any harsh chemicals like parabens, phthalates or triclosan. 

Dust some bronzer on all over with the Ms. Sunshine Kabuki Bronzer Brush, and you’ll look like….well, Ms. Sunshine.
