Dr. Dennis Gross does self tanner in the most on brand way possible, The Alpha Beta way.

I am the most self tan averse person I know. I have seen far too many tanning mishaps to risk that ever being me, add that to not being bothered with the faff of adding a whole prep and application routine, sprinkled in with the fear of clogging tans causing breakouts and it’s easy to understand why I just avoided them.

That all changed when Sali Hughes mentioned these AB glow pads in this column and converted me to the glow pads, available in two shades- gradual and intense. Obvs I only use intense.

Saved for special occasions, these glow pads make light work of tanning. As you apply the pre soaked towelette in circular motions the formula exfoliates and tans at the same time. I’ve never had any mishaps or telltale signs of a faux glow. It dries super quickly and I can usually see visible results in 3 hours, just be sure to follow up with the rest of your routine and then wash your hands straight after.
