Score a faux glow
Avoid the damage caused by harmful UV rays, and quit baking your bod in the sun! Instead, treat it to the bronze it deserves this summer, and get glowing with a gorgeous self-tanning spray. We heart Napoleon Perdis' Summer Sun Self-Tanning Spray, as it not only enhances your color instantly (making all those light and bright shades really pop against your complexion), but it also contains moisturizing ingredients and vitamins to rehydrate, protect and nourish the skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines.

"Cellulite is a big problem when you wear white, so buy white jeans that are one size larger than you normally would to avoid that puckered look," advises beauty expert and author of Bonding Over Beauty, Erika Katz.
Keep your pits in check
The heat can be almost unbearable this time of year. So make sure you keep your pits in check and mask any unpleasant underarm stench with Dove's Clinical Protection Clear Tone Deodorant with 24-hour odor and wetness protection. It's proven to visibly reduce dark marks caused by shaving as well, meaning you can freely don all the tank tops you want without ever having to stress about lifting your arms.

Get waxed (or shave)
Short skirts and mini dresses call for smooth gams, so remember: Shave your legs front and back and pay special attention to those thighs, warns beauty expert Erika Katz. If you have long or dark hair on your arms, consider getting them waxed or shave them yourself. "Nothing looks worse than a gorgeous dress with hairy arms." Eek! We'd have to agree on that one.
