If you're looking for an alternative to bronzers, self-tanners, and even harmful sunbathing, take a closer look at Perfekt Beauty's Matte Body Perfection Gel ($48). Not only does this makeup/skin care hybrid provide an optimal way to get a faux tan in an instant, but unlike its cousin self-tanner, it doesn't smell offensive in any way.
This one-tan wonder works on all skin tones to give a natural warm glow wherever a warm glow is needed. And because it's so moisturizing, you won't need to add extra hydration before or after application. In fact, it's best not to moisturize when using this product in order to prevent color transfer onto clothes, seats, and even other people. While it does take a bit to work this buildable gel into the skin, once it's on, it's on, drying to a visually pleasing semimatte finish. Leave the oiled-up look to the bodybuilders.
