    Nothing beats the first taste of a warm summer glow. Something about it just makes you feel better, healthier, and, who are we kidding — hotter! Lucky for us, S.F. was blessed with some serious sunshine last weekend, illuminating the entire city from Dolores Park all the way to Ocean Beach.

Check out her eight simple DIY steps (modeled by local blogger Maria Morales) and get ready to glow, rain or shine.
