This self-tanner does just what the name implies. Apply all over the face and body, wait 10 minutes, and then jump in the shower. Four to six hours later you’ll look like you’ve just had a restorative weekend on the Amalfi Coast.

Keeping your body moisturized will make your tan look better and last longer. Apply the the rich Rodin Luxury Body Oil all over, paying special attention to areas prone to dryness (think: knees, ankles, and elbows).
