As temperatures continue to rise with the warmer months upon us, our initial instinct is to dig into our summer wardrobes for short dresses and denim cutoffs, both of which put our legs on full display. If you haven’t found quite enough time to hit the beach and bronze up, don't worry. We've been on the hunt for quick fixes that not only hydrate but also make our legs appear luminous and bronzed. These must-haves leg bronzers are full of skin-loving ingredients that are guaranteed to keep your legs looking their absolute best. Get the inside scoop on our seven miraculous finds below.
Votre Vu Silk Stockings ($38)
This nourishing glow-tion from French, all-natural brand Votre Vu is infused with vitamin E and extracts of calendula, linden, and chamomile to mask the appearance of those tiny veins and imperfections. The radiant pigment adds the finest touch of both bronze and shine.
Bliss Hide and Glow Seek ($38)
Bliss's tinted body spray not only perfects the skin with a subtle tint but clinically firms and tones the treated areas over time. It's enriched with ingredients like maracuja oil, vitamin E, peptides, and even caffeine to perk up dull skin. We recommend the medium-dark shade even if you have fair skin.

You're just three drops away from sun-kissed skin. Simply mix Clarins skin booster with your favorite lotion to gradually develop a natural-looking golden glow. Bonus: This product is 99.8% natural.
Caudalie Divine Legs ($38)
Caudalie cultivated this ultra-lightweight tinted body lotion to give your legs a touch of sun without the hassle of self-tanner. The universal tint blends flawlessly with all skin tones, light to dark, and dries instantly so you can get dressed right away.
Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body Slimmer Shimmer: Shape, Hydrate & Glow ($65)
Charlotte Tilbury poured all of her makeup artist know-how and backstage beauty secrets into creating this incredible Slimmer Shimmer. It not only firms the skin but sculpts the contours and highlights the center of legs to enhance and define the shape. The result? Legs that look longer and leaner.
Hampton Sun Serious Shimmer Cooling Spray in Bronze ($32)
Ingredients like aloe vera and vitamins A and E make this a super-soothing formula, perfect for sensitive skin. Light-reflecting properties give a flattering, shimmery bronze luster to darker skin tones or already-bronzed skin.
Say Hello to Sexy Legs Tinted Glow Gel ($38)
Designed to deliver an instant natural bronze, the Tinted Glow Gel moisturizes and softens the skin, while camouflaging imperfections and evening out skin tone. It's supplemented with caramel to deliver a beautiful tint, as well as caffeine and green tea to help correct the appearance of cellulite.
