CosmopolitanAs summer rolls around, you're ready to hit the beach with your brand new bikini and killer body that you've been working all year for. The only problem: your legs still look so pasty, it's blinding.. Instead of going tanning (the worst thing you can do), try out these leg bronzers for a quick fix that will give your gams a flawless, sun-kissed glow.
