1. Before showering, follow the Scandivaian secret to smooth, healthy skin by dry brushing your skin with an invigorating body brush.  Earth Therapeutics Tampico Vegetable Fiber Skin Brush, $10, works well.

2. In the shower, use an exfoliating shower gel like Aveeno Positively Radiant Exfoliating Body Wash, $6.

3. After showering, lock in moisture and prep skin for even self-tanner coverage with a firming body lotion such as Nivea Body Skin Firming Moisturizer with CoQ10, $8.

4. Top off with a gradual self-tanner, like Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer, $6.50.

5. Show off your gorgeous skin with a light-reflecting shimmer powder, such as Bonne Belle Glimmer Bronze Highlighting Dust, $4. Apply anywhere the sun would  hit, such as the shoulders and decolletage, and the shins and tops of thighs.
