We are well into September now and the memories of the hot Summer sunshine is beginning to fade. Even though this is the case, saying goodbye to your tan doesn’t have to be the case. These seven products can help you protect, elongate and fake your way to an Autumn of sun kissed glow with the healthiest ways possible.
PROTECT AND PREP
These two products are amazing at both prepping your skin for a fake or real tan but also helping it stick. Do you find that after a Summer of sunshine your skin feel a bit dry. I don’t know if this is TMI but this last week was the first week of going back to wearing jeans and the inside of my black jeans are definitely coated with a bit of dry skin…bleugh! Well, I am now back on exfoliating my skin in the most delicate way possible. I have been using the Ren Micro Polish Cleanser for almost a year now and have sadly just run out but it is amazing! The product is actually designed for your face, to help it exfoliate and resurface your skin back to its soft self but I actually use it on my bottom cheeks and the back of my thighs. It is the best product for this and over the summer got rid of a heat rash that I had…genius product! I find that the Sukin Facial Scrub is nice and delicate on my skin. I just use a little bit on my face once a week for a weekend face routine. It helps to smooth out any rough textures on your skin. I particularly like to rub it into oily sections and find that it is great at balancing the skin back to a normal texture.
ELONGATE YOUR GLOW
I was sent a Hello Day Autumn Box this month and I adore the concept. Hello Day have a created a box for each season throughout the year. The boxes are filled with the supplements that you need to keep your health top notch that season. What I also adore is that the box I was sent was 100% vegetarian. The supplements I have photographed below are the Sun Prime tablets. These tablets are tan enhancing and include copper which helps balance your skins pigmentation. The make up item I can’t live without at the moment is Benefit’s Dew The Hoola. I had a sample of this in a goodie bag a few months ago and fell in love so popped it on my birthday list and my brother kinda bought me a bottle. I mix Dew The Hoola in with my foundation and blend them across my face for a more tanned look than I am naturally right now. The product is light, smells fab and leaves you looking sun kissed and glowy…literally my fave new beauty find of the Summer and will be a staple for ever more I believe.
FAKE YOUR GLOW
If you aren’t blessed with a sun kissed glow but really want one then why not fake it? It’s the safest and healthiest way to do it! These products are going to help you look like you spent the Summer is Dubai. E.L.F have some amazing booster drops. I love the concept of the drops and they are really affordable. Add a few droplets into your hand along with your serum or moisturiser and massage it into your face and neck. Make sure you wash your hands after use as it is a tanning product after all. Another great product is the Hempz gradual self tanning cream. It comes in a really big bottle and doesn’t smell too strong either. I also really love the Vichy Self Tanner. I adore Vichy products as you may have read here. I felt it was only right to use the Vichy self tanner after using their SPF all holiday long. The tan develops after just an hour, I also feel like the price is pretty darn good too and it’s on sale at Feel Unique right now.
