That means moisturizing, sun protection and cultivating a radiant glow. Here are some tips from Jmore beauty expert Ariel Lewis for products that will keep you looking sunsational throughout the spring and summer seasons.
Protect your precious skin without sacrificing your suntan with one of today’s natural-looking bronzers or sunless tanning products.
Try: Sjolie. An organic and vegan spray tan solution, Sjolie comes in a wide variety of shades so you’re sure to find a perfect match for your skin tone. Best of all, this brand offers 8-ounce samples so you needn’t commit to purchasing the full-size product without trying it out first.
Try: Jergen’s Natural Glow Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse
Looking for a quick and reasonably priced sunless tanning solution? Look no further than this quality drugstore brand. Jergen’s Mousse is one of Ariel’s favorite self-tanners because of its fast-drying formula that deepens within hours of application. An added benefit? This product leaves no unpleasant odor.
Don’t show off that beach body without making sure the skin is soft and glowing.
Try: Herbivore’s Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish
This paraben and sulfate-free formula delivers lasting moisture and is ideal for all skin types. It has a flirty coconut and rose scent to boot!
Whether you are kicking back at the beach or relaxing by an evening bonfire, humid summer air can make even the most carefully applied makeup look greasy. That’s why Ariel recommends a setting spray that keeps makeup looking fresh all day long.
Try: NYX’s Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray for an affordable and fast way to seal makeup and leave skin looking flawless no matter what the heat index.
Primers are one of the newest makeup bag musts and with good reason! The right primer can make all the difference, giving skin an airbrushed look that provides the perfect canvas for foundation.
Try: Tarte’s Poreless Mattifying Primer. It smooths over imperfections from fine lines to acne scars to dry patches and stays put for a full 12 hours! One of Ariel’s favorite new products, Tarte’s vegan formula not only primes the complexion, it also fortifies skin with nutrients to leave you glowing even after your makeup comes off.
We’ve got you covered when it comes to a product that offers UV light protection and coverage all in one! Summer’s rays, while glorious, can put you at risk for short to long term sun damage. Try: It Cosmetics CC+ cream with SPF 50. Its unique anti-aging formula delivers both full coverage and broad spectrum protection. Remember, a little goes a long way. For best results, blend in product with a stippling brush.
