There are certain worship and work situations where nylons are appropriate. And if you happen to be a Queen or Princess.
Otherwise, bare legs have become ubiquitous. That’s fine for the very young or genetically blessed. But if you’re over 50, it’s not always an ideal look.
The O Report recommends what we call liquid nylons, which means any self-tanner or instant bronzer that will even out the skin tone on your legs while also covering flaws and adding color.
Our current favorite is St. Tropez One Night Only Wash Off Face and Body Lotion ($16; st.tropez.us)
The easy to use, streak-free lotion comes in two shades: light/medium and medium/dark. Smooth it over clean, dry skin for an instant golden tan that lasts up to 24 hours.
It will not transfer onto clothing or sheets. And it’s made with RAINMAC technology so it won’t wash off in the rain. You can apply it to a targeted area that’s not covered by your clothing - or your full leg.
Wear it alone, or on top of your regular self-tanneR for an extra glow. It dries quickly in just a few minutes. Just be sure to wash your hands well afterward.
