One’s summer look will not be complete without that sun-kissed glow. While many may get the chance to flaunt their body at the beach and naturally get a tan, there are those who are glued to their office desks and can’t seem to catch a summer break. If you’re one of the latter, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered. There are many different ways to achieve a sun-kissed glow without taking a long trip to the beach. Many of these can be easily done in the comforts of your own home.
With so many ingenious types of cosmetics in today’s market, getting that perfect summer look has never been easier. For your face, neck, and cleavage, go for an all-natural mineral-based bronzing powder for a tanner look and some shimmery highlighter that mimics the sun’s reflection even when you’re indoors. Don’t ever underestimate the power of makeup. Combining several products, you can create endless number of transformations!
Similar to face make-up, a body bronzer does a good job mimicking the natural sun-kissed glow you can get from frolicking at the beach. The trick to using a bronzer is not to overdo it. You don’t want to show up looking several shades darker. It’s almost as if you’re telling the whole world you just got a fake tan. As a general rule, if you have to fake something, don’t ever shout it out loud.
Skin Care Routine
A sun-kissed glow manifests naturally if you have healthy skin. It’s very important that you have a skincare routine that supports your tan. If you don’t have one yet, we suggest that you consult a dermatologist to know the kind of skin care products that are right for your skin. You don’t want to go to beauty stores directly and get the most popular ones out of their catalog. Skincare products work differently from person to person. It takes a trip to the dermatologist to know the right ones you should use. Otherwise, you may experience unwanted breakouts, allergies, among many other skin problems.
Self Tanning Lotion
If you don’t have the time to tan outdoors under the summer sun, using self-tanning lotion is a popular alternative. Aside from the fact that these are very easy to apply, self-tanning lotions also pack in moisture and added nourishment that your skin needs to avoid drying and flaking. If these products are not your cup of tea, you can treat yourself to a spray tan for the perfect sunkissed glow.
Natural Tan Outdoors
If you do have the luxury of going to the beach this summer, you may want to stock up on sunbathing tips. At the beach, you have all access to the sun, as well as its harmful UV rays. So it is very important that you don’t stay under it for more than two hours. To promote the natural tanning process, apply suntan oil with sunscreen on your body. Don’t forget to moisturize when you’re done.
There is no better summer accessory than that perfect sunkissed glow. It’s a comfort to know that it’s achievable. We can’t wait for you to try some of these methods out!
