Summer sun can leave skin dull, freckled, and with discolorations. A brightening body cream to the rescue. Repêchage Biolight Brightening Body Corrector ($75) is a natural seaweed-based cream that helps reduce the appearance of age spots and discoloration caused by the sun’s damaging rays and leaves skin bright and luminous. Yes to Grapefruit Dark Spot Correcting Body Crème (9.99) is a budget-friendly alternative and calls on the power of Vitamin C to lighten and brighten over time.
Tip: To get the most of either product, use a body scrub at least weekly to eliminate dead skin cells and allow product to penetrate.
The harsh summer temps can parch that pout. To give lips a healthy boost, start first by eliminating dead skin cells with a product like Bliss Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub ($18). The nourishing botanicals create the perfect canvas for your lip color. Next, keep lips super soft with a protective balm. Sebamed Lip Defense Stick SPF 30 ($4.95) regenerates dry, chapped lips quickly and effectively with vitamin E, while also protecting against further dehydration and UV rays.
Tip: You can also use a DIY mix of table sugar and oil to exfoliate lips.
A little makeup goes a long way when it comes to giving skin that sun-kissed glow. Start with a tinted moisturizer like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers Illuminating Moisturizer ($10.99). Offering broad spectrum SPF 30 protection, this oil-free formulation is packed with antioxidants and smooths imperfections without the heaviness of a foundation. Next, break out the gold. Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust ($13.50) in Champagne is all-in-one shimmer accent gives that extra glow and sun kissed look on the cheeks, eyes, lips, and décolletage. Use a dusting brush to highlight the areas of the face and neck that the sun would hit naturally to give you that extra shimmer and bronze affect.
Tip: In the palm of your hand, mix a tiny bit of the gold dust in with your moisturizer for an illuminating glow.
