The Bare

Now that you're brave enough to sport shorts to the office and flashing some ankle is no longer considered exhibitionism, you should really tan those pasty stems. If they haven't seen much sun until now, it's time to take matter into your own hands. By that, we mean some self-tanner.

Forget the goop and sprays. These little wet-naps make application a breeze. Smoothe on in long strokes, watching for streaks. L'Oreal Sublime Bronze, $9 at Drugstores.


Exfoliate with a body scrub (or simply a wash cloth) focusing on your knees and ankles.


The tanner dyes your outer layer of skin. Retain color by moisturizing after a shower.
