Every two to four weeks, the Western Banded Geckos of the desert Southwest shed their skin. These sprightly desert dwellers are nocturnal so despite the tan pigment of their supple surface, they hide out under rocks during the day, not daring to let in a slender toe taste direct sunlight.
Seems we could learn a thing or two from these local lizards. Not only are they wise enough to steer clear of the blazing sun, they don’t get attached. Trade blah for bombshell in these four beach beauty transforming steps.
Start by cleansing your canvas with the vitamin-enriched, riced-based Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant ($48) facial polish. Salicylic acid lifts impurities while chickpea flour buffs skin clean. Find it at select spas listed at eminenceorganics.com. or buy it at amazon.
Give shoulders, knees and bod the brush off with Sapien Women Body Scrub ($19.99). An exotic, eco-friendly blend of Amazonian ingredients, the scrub relies on coconut bark and organic buriti fruit to slough away reptilian skin. A dose of white clay detoxifies skin while organic aloe vera juice intensely hydrates.
Take your transformation to the next stage with St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water Facial Mist ($30). This ultra-lightweight and vegan-friendly clear mist does not need to be rinsed off. Apply daily under or over makeup, simply spritz and glow to achieve a natural looking golden tan that lasts for days.
Give your legs a dose of bombshell with COOLA Organic Sunless Tan Firming Lotion ($46). Ease into a healthy, golden glow while nourishing your skin with Coola’s organic, ultra-moisturizing bronzer. Develops your tan subtly and naturally as you continue using it.
Douse your bronzed skin in the alluring scent of ylang-ylang and tiny, illuminating particles of pure gold. Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil ($80) locks in your look with a healing, protective dose of rich botanicals like rice germ oil and turmeric root extract. You’ll want to swim in this beautiful oil but a little goes a long way.
Add illumination to your mane with Captain Blankenship Golden Waves Shimmer Sea Salt Hair Spray with Natural Gold Mica. This lightweight spray creates beachy tousled waves. while natural gold mica adds a golden shimmer to hair. Looks great in blonde hair, but is subtle enough for all hair colors.
