That Beach Glow Tho - New Body Glow Products


It’s the holiday weekend and that means that the kick off for summer, ready or not, is truly here.     Everything is exposed now, including your body skin, so having a prep plan in place is key.  Fortunately there are lots of great new products to protect from sun damage, fake a vacation-worthy tan, and highlight your limbs to give the impression you spend more time on a beach than anywhere else.  


Firsts things first: exfoliate your skin to reveal a primed layer for a self tanner.  Start slow and build it up over two weeks and then maintain it throughout the summer.  Self-tanners now come in sprays, mousse, creams, and oils.  Try Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Mousse which comes in three different depths of color and build it up over a few days to reach exactly the shade that looks authentic on your skin.  Tan-Luxe THE BUTTER is an illuminating formula that enhances your own skin color while imparting a safe tan.


We all know the drill that we need to use at least an SPF of 30 broad spectrum sunscreen re-applied every two hours or after swimming or sports activities, and finding the right formula that doesn’t turn your skin chalky can be tricky.  To enhance your skin’s glow try Clarins Sunscreen Care Oil Spray in SPF30.  For a more active day whether it’s at the beach or otherwise, try MDSOLARSCIENCES Quick Dry Body Spray with their proprietary SolSci-X SPF 40 UVA-UVB formula.  Regardless, keep re-applying your sunscreen to protect your skin from skin cancer and free radicals that cause premature aging.  You will still absorb feel-good vitamin D while avoiding permanent damage.  


Hot on the trend of facial glow products are specifically formulated body treats that give a subtle shimmer to shoulders, legs, and collarbones.  Try body beauty expert’s Sol De Janeiro’s Glow Oil which comes in two shades, Ipanema Sunset and Copacabana Bronze, and feel like you are right there on a Brazilian beach - no one does beach beauty quite like the Brazilians. For a rose-gold glow lightly spray the areas you want to highlight with Herbivore Rose Quartz Illuminating Body Oil.  

Sailing into summer like #bestbeachglow #alwaysonvacation #beachbeauty

It’s GLOW TIME! The BEST Self-Tanners for the Ultimate Summer Glow!

The perfect summer glow is the best beauty look for warm weather and these Face This product picks couldn’t be easier to use, giving you a top to toe glow and sexy beach hair. 


Face:  Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha-Beta Glow Pads are infused with vitamin D, and alpha and beta hydroxy acids to exfoliate and help clear the skin of sunspots and blackheads.  Apply using the odorless towelettes for a streak-free glow.


Hair:  Bumble & Bumble Surf Infusion spray gives the perfect texture to hair to make soft waves.  Spray the product on the palms of your hands and gently work it though sections of damp hair.  Either braid you hair or put it up into multiple small buns and then either air dry or blow dry on the lowest heat setting.  Let you hair down and brush with your fingers rather than a hairbrush. 


Legs:  Yes of course you could simply use a body self tanner on your legs, but when there are products designed specifically to enhance your legs to make them look amazing, why wouldn’t you?  Start with Say Hello to Sexy Legs Tinted Glow Gel all over your legs and follow up with the Illuminating Fluid applied straight up the front and down the middle of the back of your legs to highlight them which visually lengthens them.  Admit it – you want this.


Body:  Easy application is key when you are trying to reach all of your body, and it is vital that the formula is streak-free so that you don’t leave telltale marks in spots you can’t see yourself.  Tarte Brazilliance Plus+ Self Tanner + Mitt uses proprietary odor-blocking ingredients, and it’s key ingredients exfoliate the skin as it tans, prepping it for a glow that lasts longer since it penetrates deeper into the skin.   


Build up your tan over time, or just glow for a weekend.  No fuss, no streaks, no smell, easy application, and skin nourishing ingredients, with beach waves that are simple to do, means more time for summer fun instead worrying about how to achieve model-like beach beauty.  You’ve got this.

DIY Cocoa Powder Bronzer or Self tanner


Thanks to the Morning Blend for inviting me on the show today to talk a little more about some beach beauty secrets! One DIY tip we explored was using Cocoa powder as a bronzer. This little trick has been getting a lot of hype lately and it's super easy to do, but does it really work?

Here is a post that has pretty much gone viral on Pinterest showing a before and after photo which appears pretty promising. Just mix 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder with your favorite lotion and apply evenly for these results:


However, this photo seems to be the exception rather than the rule of what real life results are likely to be.

Case in point below appears to be more of a pudding like-mess. 


The cocoa powder/lotion bronzer will work - but it will not last long if you sweat and it will transfer easily on your clothes or anything that you happen to have skin contact with. Fun but not very practical! Would love to hear what sort of results some of you have experienced.
