Prep your skin by exfoliating in the shower. After you dry off, massage a gradual self-tanner (like Dove Energy Glow Daily Moisturizer) all over your arms, chest, legs, back, and stomach. It leaves your skin with a subtle base color. Keep your fingers and palm cupped as you rub it in to avoid leaving streaks, says Baraf. Wait about five minutes for the lotion to dry.
