There seems to be something about the warmer months that brings out a glow in all of us — or is that just sweat? All kidding aside, achieving that sought-after summer glow is easy if you follow these skin-healthy tips:
Buff, scrub and polish
Nothing kills a good glow like dull, dead skin cells. To brighten and revive the skins give it a nice exfoliation session with the Fruit Enzyme Scrub. Dual skin polishers and dissolving enzymes quickly exfoliate dead skin cell build-up and unwanted debris in pores. Super-smooth jojoba beads and refined bamboo stem powder gently polish the skin without irritating or tearing the surface while fruit enzymes dissolve dulling residues. Use all over from head to toe to reveal ultra-smooth, ultra-soft skin.
Slather on the sunless
Now that your skin is soft and smooth grab a bottle of the Del Sol Sunless Tanner and enjoy the look of beautifully bronzed skin without the damaging UV rays from the sun or tanning beds. Natural sugars from beets, sugar cane and other plants react safely with the skin’s surface to give a natural-looking “tan”. Licorice and aloe are added to soothe, repair and hydrate for skin that stays youthfully glowing. Apply as much or as little as you’d like for the right depth and darkness you want. Tip, for a lightly bronzed appearance mix a small amount with your favorite body lotion to make skin glow and give yourself a boost of “sun-kissed” color.
Bust out the bronzer
Give those cheeks a kiss of color with the MyChelle Bronze Blush Stick. This easy-to-use, portable mineral makeup blush stick highlights your beautiful features and gives your skin a glowing hint of healthy, natural color. It boasts visible nourishing and therapeutic benefits with grape seed and camellia oils. Apply to your cheekbones and any where else you want a beautiful, bronze glow.
Making sure your skin is regularly moisturized will keep it looking healthy and dewy. Try using certified organic coconut oil as your body lotion. Coconut oil can help return moisture to the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles when used regularly. The nutrients contained in coconut oil will nourish the skin, yet coconut oil is inexpensive and doesn’t contain any toxic chemicals and harsh ingredients.
Coconut oil can be used on your body and even your hair; it makes an excellent conditioner or hair mask/treatment. You can use it as a leave in hair treatment by applying a teaspoon or more of coconut oil to your ends. For a deeper treatment, emulsify and rub in a tablespoon or more of coconut oil onto your scalp and gently work through to the ends. Put a shower cap on to prevent transfer onto bed linens and leave on overnight. Wake up rinse/shampoo and be amazed by your glowing, healthy locks and soft, hydrated skin.
The summer months bring us many additional hours spent playing outside but at the same time soaking up damaging UV rays. Keep your skin safe and your healthy glow in tact by protecting your skin daily with an SPF. Try the Replenishing Solar Defense SPF 30 to repair and avert photo- damage brought on by the sun’s aging rays while maintaining protective moisture. ZinClear™ non-opaque Zinc Oxide provides natural protection against both UVA and UVB, without harsh chemicals. A blend of kukui and macadamia oils combine with red algae to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles brought on by environmental stress. Tip, use with a hydrating serum and skip your cream for a lightweight effect.
