So you want to glow like a Grecian Godess without looking baked like a fried up tanning bed addict…
Here are five ways to get a natural bronze:
1 – Use sunscreen…wait, what? sunscreen? Yes, sunscreen. When you are are outside under the sun, even if you have suncreen on, you will still get a tan. So don’t burn and don’t stay indoors. Use sunscreen and you will get a softer, more natural tan.
2 – Exfoliate. Don’t let dead tan skin hang around. Ug, I think that’s a terrible way to put it. But seriously, exfoliate in the shower to keep the blood flowing and the skin glowing. Plus the more you exfoliate, the better the tan.
3 – Use lotion with a glow factor. Try The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Everyday Summer Body Lotion which moisturizes with cocoa butter and Vitamin E as well as gradually building your tan.
4 – Dust yourself with gold. Try an all over face and body dust, like Urban Decay Baked Bronzer for Face and Body. Baked in old fashioned ovens in Italy, this special body bronzer will leave your skin a sheer golden that glows.
5 – Turn bad sun…good. Use an after sun product like Clarins SOS Sunburn Healer or After Sun Gel Ultra-Soothing to turn around the harsh effects of sun by soothing with healing ingredients such as aloe, shea butter, avacado, and orange.
