Spring is officially here, and whether you like it or not, it’s time to bare a little skin. That’s why for today’s post, I have rounded up my favorite products to help you get that sun-kissed glow. From self tanners to the products that help them perform at their best, these are the best of the best. I have personally tested all of these products and given them my stamp of approval. I have included my favorite body lotion from last year that gives my skin the prettiest glow and smells amazing! In this list is also a self tanning must have, the application mit! Please trust me when I say that this is a self tanning must have! So, let’s get glowing!
- Dry Body Brush //2. Acai Body Cream // 3. Jergen’s Gradual Tanner // 4. Coola Gradual Tanner Facial Serum and Self Tanner Body Oil Mist // 5. Self Tanner application Mit (MUST HAVE)// 6. Supergoop Sunscreen Oil // 7. Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen// 8. Elta Elements Tinted Sunscreen// 9. Charlotte Tilbury Highlighter
The first step in getting that sun-kissed glow is exfoliation! Unless you are using a body wash like this one that contains glycolic acid, you really aren’t exfoliating as well as you think you are. That’s why I use this dry brush to help slough off those dead skin cells and prepare my skin for self tanning products. It’s important to use long brush strokes moving toward your heart. I always get great results when I incorporate this step.
I have tried many gradual tanners, including one not-so-great one that I am recovering from recently. I will leave the brand name off, but let’s just say if it is on the bottom shelf of Ulta, leave it there! Needless to say, I always go back to Jergen’s. For the price, you really can’t beat this product.
Let’s talk about the face for a moment. I have recently discovered the brand Elta MD, and I am completely obsessed! This tinted facial sunscreen is so great because it protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays, AND includes hyaluronic acid in order to help moisturize and mask fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also waterproof, making it my holy grail product for the season. On the days that I am not planning on playing in the water, this is my go-to for facial sunscreen/makeup. I also love this gradual tanning serum for the face. It’s great for my sensitive skin and perfect for giving your face that “I laid out in the sun all day,” look.
Another product that I want to mention real quick is the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand. You guys, I just love this highlighter. I blend it in on my cheekbones, after applying my tinted spf, and it just gives my skin a little lift. Just add mascara and lip gloss and out the door you go, glowing and ready for some fun in the sun.
Have a fabulous day!
