Warmer weather is almost upon us, which means our bodies will see the light of day for the first time in many, many months. But before you reach for that self-tanner, try a bronzing lotion instead. Trade in the fear of streaks for a tailor-made dose of color that you can see immediately. What’s more, many of these lotions come with built-in shimmer to help you achieve that runway ready sheen, minus the sun damage.
