As anyone who frequently self tans can attest, the ingredients that create the perfect bronze tone can also significantly dry out your skin. Body creams and lotions are good for treating the blotchy, scaly effects, but for me, the perfect products are dry oil mists. Unlike slippery, transferable baby oil, dry oils spritz on with little mess and dry to a satin finish that actually makes skin look like its glowing from within. Since it’s an oil, it absorbs slowly, maintaining that satiny effect all day long.
