Oh my god you guys. Is it really spring today? Even though it SURE doesn't feel like it here in New York, I'm already dreaming of flirty little dresses that the warmer weather (and duh, the season) brings. But considering I also may have just booked a mystery vacay for my boyfriend and I, the idea of my pasty white legs seeing the light of day gives me nightmares. And even though I can't see all of y'alls sculpted gams, I'm pretty sure you guys could probably use these pale skin quick-fixes, too.

The Gradual Glow: I am a gigantic fan of all things St. Tropez and their Gradual Tan Plus Firming 4-in-1 is no exception. The stuff is majorly moisturizing, adds just a touch of gradual glow and firms up saggy spots. I use this stuff as lotion all or summer--especially when I'm trying to stretch a spray. Need to amp up your facial glow? I've always adored the drugstore deal from Jergens. The label's Natural Glow Daily Facial Moisturizer packs in bennies with SPF 20 and is non-comedogenic, meaning you won't break out from the stuff either. Score.
The Spray Tan: There's this awesome, new spray tan from Spray di Sole that's super-natural looking and organic, too. My editor, Rachel, swears it was the best tan of her life--and overheard some of Equinox Spa's staffers (where the treatment is available, at select locations) call it "liquid prozac" because it'll make you feel pretty freaking good. Plus, it's non-transferable, meaning it won't rub off on your glothes, and it's good for face and body. Needless to say, I've already booked my appointment.

The Essential Tool: Just add a few drops of water, and The Bronze Buffer will erase any weird streaks or spots that inevitably pop up. It's like an eraser for streaks. Best find of the year. Done.
The Last-Minute Fix: When I am running out the door and am feeling pastier than white glue, I love using Spray di Sole's Liquid Bronzer (I swear I'm not a Spray di Sole employee in disguise)--a current on-set favorite from the makeup artists on Dancing With The Stars. Even though I'll inevitably use a ton less than, let's say, Brooke Burke-Charvet will, but I love the idea I've brushing on a liquid bronzer with an included kabuki brush, since powder bronzers makes me look like Tan Mom.
