When it comes to skincare and make-up tips, there are few better people to take pointers from than those who spend their careers in front of the camera. Like, for example, the gorgeous Kelly Ripa.

In a recent appearance on Live With Kelly & Ryan, she told co-host Ryan Seacrest about one of the products that keeps her skin glowing through the winter – and you can bet we'll be shopping it, stat. 

"This product is kind of remarkable," she explained to him. "It stains nothing... You put it in your moisturizer and then you put it on and your tan develops slowly."

The product in question? None other than Tan Luxe's ever popular Illuminating Self Tan Drops, which have gained thousands of positive reviews online. These bad boys can be mixed with your skincare to create a custom glow that's truly tailored to you and develops gradually for an even finish.

Ripa explained that she loved the drops so much, she threw herself into the brand's other products – but she advises exercising caution.

"If you start putting all these things at once, you can develop tans on parts of your body more so than other parts... I realize that I put on self tanner the way I put on other products." Remember that these are tinted, folks!

Clearly she sold them to Seacrest, who retorted, "I hope I find some of this in my dressing room next week." 

Same here, Ryan (but our bathrooms, not dressing rooms).
