It's true, looking tan has never quite been a problem for us living in the tropics. With sun all year round, all we need to do is go out and walk for a bit and find ourselves lightly bronzed. This might have worked in the past, but now that we know the health effects of sun exposure and how very real they are, it's best to leave looking tan to grooming products. Here, we break down why we should be using bronzing gel.

Bronzing products come in different forms: powder, spray, moisturizer, lotion, and more. For daily use, nothing is better than a gel. The gel form leaves a more natural effect, and the formula makes it easy to wash off at the end of the day. (Don't worry, it's not a permanent self-tanner that will turn us into a bright orange Cheeto.)

It really is a product made for those who have been known to skip a beach trip (or two) or those who can't stand being out in the sun. For those of us with naturally tanned skin, bronzing gel can also be beneficial for evening skin tone. It can even make us healthier-looking with the way it adds a sheen while bringing out the color of our skin.

Bronzing gel is something we get better at with the more we use it. It's a thick substance that looks extremely dark at first glance. If our skin is a little on the lighter side, it helps to mix it with some moisturizer so that it doesn't look like grease on our face. And that way, it easily integrates into our morning routine. Use it alone if our skin is on the darker side, but remember, a little goes a long way. If in doubt, apply little by little since we can definitely build it up.

Tom Ford, the king of looking tan and being impeccably groomed, suggests swiping the product on where the sun naturally hits our face. These are the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the top of the forehead. To go full Tom Ford, pick up his own take on the product.
