The days are shorter now but I’ve kept a healthy glow—with Hampton Sun’s Sunless Tanning Gel (hamptonsuncare.com). I love this stuff. I wish I could drink it instead of having to rub it in, but that’s my only complaint about it. It goes on so evenly and really lasts. My legs look amazing. Oh whoops, my legs are about nine shades darker than the rest of me! Oh well, with these legs and a fresh shellac pedicure from John Dillon Salon (johndillonsalon.com) on Hill Street in Southampton, no one will notice the rest of me!
