Don’t you love the glow your skin has in the summer? It looks healthy, sun-tinged 🌞 and maybe even dewy. Then the temperatures drop and your glow is all but gone. Here’re some ways you can keep your summer glow going all winter ❄ long.
1. Healthy Skin is Glowing Skin
We can’t neglect the truth that what we eat shows on the outside. As much as we all love pizza, cupcakes and bags of our favorite chips, they won’t help your skin. A treat now and then is okay but you want it be the exception rather than the norm. When you make healthy food 🍌 🍉 🍇 choices, it’ll show in your appearance. Your skin and hair will look healthier and you may even see the scale drop.
2. Wherever You Go, Take H2O
This’s a good little motto to help you remember to keep water close at hand. Staying hydrated will help your skin to have a glow. When you’re not drinking enough water, it always shows in your skin. It becomes dry, ashy and dull when you’re not drinking enough. Drinking water has a huge impact on the appearance of your skin.
3. Discover the Magic ✨ of Bronzers and Highlighters
If you’re missing that sun kissed look then this’s the key to recapturing that. Bronzers and highlighters can be absolutely magical in transforming the look of your skin. It can make you look like you just returned from a week on a tropical beach. There’re a wide variety you can choose from in every price range. If you feel like splurging then try Benefit’s Sun Beam bronzer and High Beam highlighter.
4. Use a Self-Tanner
If you want to recapture your sun kissed glow all over your body then a self-tanner is the answer. Tanning beds are dangerous and can cause skin cancer. Self-tanner is a much safer option and gives you a pretty color that allows you to look like you’ve been tanning when you haven’t. There’re many different brands but I’ve always been loyal to Jergens Natural Glow. It works well and has a pleasant scent.
5. Always Apply Body Lotion
Body lotion will do two things to help you keep your summer glow. One, it locks in moisture which always makes your skin look better because it prevents dryness and flaking. Two, since your skin isn’t flaking away then you’ll retain your summer tan much longer. You can choose a scented or unscented lotion, whichever you prefer. It doesn’t have to cost a lot 💵 to work well. I’m currently enjoying a bottle of Aveeno Positively Nourishing Energizing Pomegranate body lotion which I only paid $5 for at Target.
6. Don’t Neglect Your Skincare Routine
Your skincare routine plays a big part in how glowing your skin is. It doesn’t have to be a 7 step routine to be efficient. The main thing is that you’re cleansing and moisturizing your face twice a day. Other than that you can add skincare as needed. You may want to target acne breakouts or early signs of aging.
7. Get a Spray Tan
Lastly, if you’re dying for some color and nothing else is delivering the results you want then there’s always the option of a spray tan. A spray tan gives you gorgeously glowing skin without the risk of baking yourself in a tanning bed. It’s a much healthier alternative. I spent my younger years in a tanning bed and deeply regret it. I’m so glad there’re now other options to get your glow on now such as spray tans.
