How to Stretch Your Summertime Glow
Like many of you, I am so concerned ALL summer with keeping my face lathered up with SPF, but my body really only gets one application of protection when we are intentionally outside. This leads to a total mis-match of tones, and not exactly the look I am going for. Here are my two favorite solutions for the perfect, fool-proof, self tanning application.
L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Towelettes
Not a foam, not a lotion, not a spray; A WIPE. Yes, I was a little concerned this would end well the first time I used these: how in the world will I know where I've applied the product? Will the wipe dry up?? Will it be enough???
The actual cloth is about the size of 2 or 3 baby wipes, and comes neatly folded in a little pouch. One wipe will cover your entire body, and you can somewhat see where it has been applied because the skin will appear moisturized. Be sure to wash your hands after the application...and in about 6 hours, you have yourself a gorgeous, natural tan. The best part? They are less than $10 for a pack of 6. You can buy them here.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha beta glow pads
Ok so these aren't nearly as instantly gratifying, but they work wonders. A box contains 20 wipes, and ideally you use daily on your face for an even, exfoliated, sun-kissed appearance. I (of course) dove right in, and used them every day for about a week. I loved the glow that came along with the amazing texture and overall brighter appearance, and the color was subtle.
They provide just enough glow to start to match your body, without having to apply bronzer every day. You can purchase them here. I highly recommended these if you are not in a rush for your glow. If that is not the case, just use Advanced Mineral Makeup's bronzer. It's gorgeous.
