The truth is…we all want to be bronzed bombshells this Summer! But sitting out in the sun for hours on end to get that Summer glow is just not worth it-burns, sun spots, faster aging, and even cancer. According to skincancer.org, over 90% of visible changes to the skin that are commonly attributed to aging are caused by the sun..I am not about to risk my future face for today’s tan! I’m also not about to look orange and blotchy for a week from a bad spray tan. So I’ve devised a system that will help you achieve that sun-kissed glow that we all so badly crave!
Exfoliating removes all of the dead skin cells on your face to prep for smooth and efficient application of anything that we put on our skin. If you’re not exfoliating and removing your oldest and dirtiest layer of skin at least once a week, you’re putting that expensive moisturizer on skin that can’t even absorb it well! Exfoliate your skin to make the most out of your beauty products, so that they can do their jobs on a fresh new layer of skin. This clay mask will do just that!
This Boots No7 cleansing water is such a refreshing way to cleanse your face on those hot Summer days. It goes over your face in one sweep…no water needed! I like to bring it around in my bag to refresh my face in the 115 degree Arizona weather because it is so easy and mess-free. This one is for normal to oily skin and will eliminate all shine, so don’t use this if you tend to have dry skin!!
I said it once, and I’ll say it again-don’t sacrifice your future skin for today’s tan!!! According to skincancer.org, people who use sunscreen daily show 24% less skin aging than those who didn’t. This means that sunscreen is not just a foreign cream that is used for the pool and beach…it should be applied daily!!!!!! This should be a regimen in your daily routine-if you don’t have SPF included in your moisturizer, apply a sunscreen last in your skincare routine. This Boots Beauty sunscreen is super lightweight so it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing something heavy on your skin, plus it has added Vitamin E to help combat premature aging.
Now that we’ve taken the proper steps to prolonging our bronze, we can bronze! This aerosol spray tan-in-a-can by Neutrogena is super easy to use, dries fast, doesn’t get on your clothes, and sprays evenly! That’s like heaven in a bottle, right?! I took before and after pictures on myself to show you all how well it works! The second picture was taken about 12 hours after I applied the micro mist…it takes a few hours for it to really set in and show a huge difference, so make sure not to shower at least a few hours after applying! My next-best trick is bronzer! i don’t use it just on my cheeks, but apply a light layer all over my face, neck, and chest. This bronzer by Motives called “Miami Glow” has just the perfect amount of bronze without getting you orange, and has a little shimmer to it that reflects light off of the sun.
5) Set and hydrate:
This mineral water spray sets your makeup all day for a long-lasting effect, and adds a fresh dewey glow to your newly bronzed face. Not to mention, it’s super refreshing for a little spritz on a hot Summer day!!
