Now that spring seems like it’s going to make its grand appearance and we all get to come out of hibernation, it’s time to start getting our spring/summer glow ready! This season a lot of the focus has been on the “glow of it all”, every makeup guru loves a good highlight and if you can’t see it from space you simply aren’t doing it right! But we don’t just want highlight for the face, we want highlight for the body too!!
There is nothing better than sitting out on the beach by the pool with smooth, bronze skin that glimmers and glissins in the light of the sun. Except maybe a margarita to go with the glow, but you see where I’m going with this. Im breaking down this easy, 3 step recipe for the perfect summer body glow for you ladies! After all, when ones glows we all glow! ✨
First things first, if you aren’t already using a body scrub.. get one! They are amazing, exfoliating removes dead cells from the skins surface and allows fresh, healthy skin underneath to shine through. This will also help to tone and tighten, as well as allow body lotions and butters to penetrate more deeply, giving maximum moisture. Making a scrub at home is quite easy (Click The P icon at the bottom of the page to find some cool body scrub recipes on my Pinterest account) However, if you just don’t have time for all that you can head over to Lush Cosmetics and pick up one of their many awesome body scrubs that’s come in all different scents.
The next step in the glow process is getting all oiled up to give our skin some moisture and shine. I love to use Goē Oil, body oil.. it’s an all over body oil that revitalizes skin and has a super long wear, so don’t worry you won’t be ashy by noon! How much Oil you use it totally up to you, however I will say a little of this really does go a long way and I don’t want you ladies slipping and sliding all around town, so use a light hand, eh?
Now that we are all smooth and oiled up, it’s time for the last and most fun part in our body glow routine is adding the glow of course! There’s are plenty of body shimmer products on the market, so don’t be afraid to do a little research on different kinds if you need. My personal favorite and what I get the best results from is the Melanie Mills Hollywood Gleam Body Glow! Y’all, this stuff is literal magic .. like I can’t. And trust me I tried to can, and I still can’t!
It goes on as a cream like product, and absorbs very evenly into the skin. It does also come in four different shades, so that you are able to choose one that compliments your specific skin tone perfectly!
All 3 of these products together create a bronze shimmer paradise and will leave you feeling sexy and ready for the summer time! If you have any tips for us about what you use to get the prefect body glow for summer please drop some comments below, don’t be holding out now!
