A Sun-kissed Look Without The Sun
We all know the sun's rays can do serious damage to skin cells, and we're big proponents of slathering on sunscreen all of the time. But we can't deny that a bit of boost comes from having our glow on. Bronzy arms and a hint of gold on our cheeks still feels rather chic, doesn't it? Good thing our favourite green beauty companies can give us our sun-kissed fix without any damaging UV rays, or toxic chemicals. Come on, the beach may be far away but we can always pretend!
Get Your Body Glowing
1/ Start your sun-kissed routine by feeling like you're on vacation with SW Basics Body Scrub. The simple coconut oil, shredded coconut and sugar blend make you feel like you're sipping a pina colada on a tropical island, while exfoliating away dead skin cells and brightening skin. A must for glowing skin. Can be used on the face too!
2/ Fake it, don't bake it with Chocolate Sun Sunless Tanner for Face and Body. Choose the blend to match your current skin tone, then apply before bed to wake up and find skin glowing. Made with shea butter, coconut oil and aloe plus a blend of botanicals and herbs, it's seriously the best (and healthiest) faux-sun we've found around.
3/ There's a reason they call May Lindstrom The Good Stuff Radiance Oil 'Liquid Sunshine'. A super-luxe hydrating blend of cocoa, rose lavender and translucent gold minerals quenches skin, leaving a subtle sexy shimmer all over. A must for silky-smooth, sun-kissed skin.
Make it Up with Makeup
1/ Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Desired Glow applied to apples of cheeks imparts a subtle sheen and perfect sun-kissed glow, making it look like you've been on holiday. A cream-based blush is an ideal spring and summer option, as it's easily blended into skin with or without foundation as a base.
2/ Treat Collection's Good Thing is a super pretty sheer pink that will play off the golden hues of your faux sun-kissed skin and look stylish all year long.
3/ Ilia Beauty Lip Gloss in White Rabbit is a near-clear choice with a hint of golden shimmer to play up your pout in the sunshine. Keeping it light and shimmery, Ilia lip glosses are smooth, non-sticky and hydrating. We especially love them this time of year.
Don't Forget the Sunscreen
With the above-mentioned products, you'll look like you've spent the last few weeks on the Mediterranean, but remember you're not sun-proof. Suntegrity's got you covered for the real sun-shiny deal.
