Sevin Nyne Tanning Mist
$35 for 5 ounces, exclusively at Sephora (beginning May 1), Regency Square Mall, and online at sephora.com (beginning April 15)
Actress/singer Lindsay Lohan's product was created by airbrush-tanning expert Lorit Simon. The mist is infused with goji-berry extract (featuring antioxidants) and chardonnay extracts (for hydration), and is designed to create a natural-looking tan. And no worries, the aerosol can is environmentally friendly.
Sunless & Skinny by Fake Bake
$22 and up for 4.5 ounces, at Haley Too, 3420 W. Cary St.; Scissors Hair Studio, 4 1/2 N. 18th St.; Ulta, Chesterfield Towne Center; and fakebake.com
To truly showcase your tanned self, why not chuck those imperfections Mother Nature gave you? This tanner contains clinical levels of cellulite fighters (for smoothing skin) and botanicals (for tightening it). At first application, a bronze will develop and gradually deepen, while skin should perk up in a few days and continue to smooth over time.
Beautiful Legs by Nivea, $10 for 6.7 ounces, available (beginning in April) in two shades at most drugstores and niveausa.com
If you dread reaching for the razor but desire smooth-looking, tan legs, consider using this lotion to tone up. The moisturizing formula builds a gradual glow when used daily — and it keeps you from having to shave as often by making hair less noticeable.
