Get Sexy Skin from Head to Toe

Rinse Away Bronzing Lotion
For a radiantly tanned visage in less than sixty seconds: DHA-free St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Glow Face Lotion ($14, sttropeztan.com) lets you look as though you’ve spent your summer at the beach and rinses away easily at sundown.
Extra-Dark Sunless Tanner
The deep color Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe ($56, xen-tan.com) delivers after only one application looks natural on even the fairest skin; so-called "scent secure" molecules banish the telltale self-tan smell in favor of a rich vanilla aroma.
Tis not the season for thick foundation. Instead, try Fresh Minerals Tinted Moisturizer ($25, FreshMineralsUSA.com), a vitamin-packed triple threat. A sheer layer smooths imperfections, nourishes skin and imparts your daily dose of SPF.

Restorative Face Mist
Soothe and protect skin with a spritz of LaRocca Vitamin Repair Mist ($29, LaRocca.com), an SPF 15 bio-active cocktail. Vitamin C and extracts of grapeseed, green tea leaf, prickly pear cactus and honeysuckle work together to fight everything from free radicals to blackheads.
Shimmering Body Lotion
Dab a daub of iridescent Illamasqua Gleam Cream ($34, sephora.com) on shoulders, shins and anywhere else you want to sparkle.
Redness Reducing Powder
Stayed too long in the sun? Conceal and heal the burn with Glo Redness Relief Powder ($25, gloskincare.com), a lemon-yellow concoction. Potent ingredients like caffeine, licorice and green tea extract also fight irritation caused by waxing, chemical peels, acne or rosacea.
Creamy Bronzing Stick
Formulated with water-resistant beeswax, Napoleon Perdis Foundation Stick Bronze Luminizer ($39.00, napoleonperdis.com) is a versatile shimmering formula that stays put. Read: your golden glow won’t wear-off on even the balmiest summer night.
Self-Tanning Bronzing Mousse
Clarins Delectable Self Tanning Mousse SPF 15 ($42, Clarins.com) is a lightweight, foamy cream that moisturizes, protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays, and, most importantly, lends subtle, sun-kissed color to your skin.
Pampering Foot Scrub
Perfect between pedicures, Manicure/Pedicure by OPI Royal Verbena Scrub ($12.95, opi.com for locations) is a sweet-smelling treatment that works two ways: First, natural sugar crystals smooth rough skin, then fruit-derived alpha-hydroxy acids promote cell turnover, leaving heels borderline silky.
