I believe that sometimes we need a touch more than just the sun to get that golden goddess glow. There are several products out there to help your skin appear healthier and dewier. The hardest part is trying to figure out what you need.
Here are 5 products I always find myself reaching for to achieve a radiant looking
NYX California Beamin’ Face & Body Liquid Highlighter
This highlighter is an absolute must-have this summer! It’s marvellous for adding a gorgeous glow to your skin. Its vegan formula contains ingredients such as rosehip, grapeseed and jojoba oils – all the ingredients you could ever want for smooth and moisturised skin. Let’s not forget to mention how it also contains avocado oil! Avocado oil has brilliant benefits such as replenishing and healing dry skin. Plus, it also protects you from skin damage and even shields the skin from ultraviolet radiation. Ideal for the summer heat.
My favourite part about this liquid highlighter is how you can use it on your face and body. Try applying it to your collarbones and shoulders. Doing this will enhance your features as it creates a bit of dimension to them. Imagine how stunning that’ll look when the sun hits you.
This highlighter from NYX comes in 4 dazzling shades. A bonus is how easy the application is with the help of the pipette. It allows for controlled and precise application. You can either apply it directly to the skin or mix it with other products such as moisturiser or foundation. The choice is up to you.
Cetaphil Daily Defence Moisturiser SPF50+
Moisturiser is essential, not only during the summer but all year round. The same goes for sun cream. I love this moisturiser; it’s everything you need for a daily cream. It’s lightweight, fragrance-free and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin! Its formula is also non comedogenic, so it won’t clog your pores. This moisturiser absorbs super easily into the skin without leaving any residue. Lovely for sitting underneath your makeup or just on top of makeup-free skin. It’s gentle and will leave you with a hydrated glow
When you know you’re going to spend time outside, it can be a bit of an extra task to apply both sun cream and moisturiser. This moisturiser shields the skin with SPF 50+. That’s unbelievable for protecting you fro the daily effects of exposure to the sun.
I love the size of the bottle too! It’s great for putting it in your bag so you can effortlessly reapply it when you’re out and about.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer
I’m sure that bronzer is one of the first products that come to mind for a sun-kissed glow. It’s an easy way to sweep some colour onto your cheeks, jawline and even hairline. Ultimately, giving you a more instantly tanned look. If you’re looking for a matte bronzer, Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Bronzer is for you.
Thanks to the help of mica particles treated with amino acids, it leaves your skin with a smooth, flawless finish. Another magic ingredient in this formula is hyaluronic acid. It helps to hydrate the skin and make it appear softer. This bronzer is super comfortable to wear because of these great ingredients. It’s also incredible to know that they’re treating your skin superbly whilst wearing them.
I love how beautiful the packaging is too. A gold, classic compact case with a huge mirror. Excellent for on the go application as well. What’s not to love? In my opinion, 3 the cherry on top is that this compact is refillable. Environmentally friendly and saving your bank account!
Garnier Summer Body Hydrating Gradual Tan Moisturiser
This product is something I love all year round. It’s my go-to if I want to add a sun- kissed glow to my skin without having to spend hours outside or time in a sun bed. As the name suggests, it creates a “gradual tan” based on your skin tone and comes in 2 different shades.
This body lotion is enriched with apricot oil with promises to keep you moisturised for 24 hours. Apricot oil has a load of unreal skin benefits. Its formula is high in vitamins E and C, which help improve skin tone and maintain your skin’s radiance. The product itself also has a lovely, sweet apricot scent.
This body lotion is light, fast-absorbing and intensely hydrating. If you are looking to try out tanning products but do not want to commit to a full tanning session, you need to try this. I love how easy it is to get an even tan without it looking patchy in certain places. The colour builds up gradually and creates the perfect natural glow. It’ll even help maintain your tan for longer. This vegan formula will keep your skin feeling soft and moisturised all day long. Plus, it’s suitable for all skin types too.
Typology Paris – Organic Jojoba Botanical Oil
If you didn’t already know, jojoba oil has an endless list of benefits for your skin. It’s super hydrating and enriched with nutrients such as Vitamin B and E, which help repair the skin. Jojoba oil even has minerals and antioxidants that work to protect and nourish your skin. Some of these are copper, zinc and chromium. The best part is, jojoba oil is suitable for all skin types so we can all enjoy its benefits.
This jojoba oil from Typology is 100% cold-pressed, organic and made in France. It’s even vegan. This face oil absorbs into the skin and adds a healthy-looking glow to your appearance without clogging your pores. Jojoba oil is quite similar to our skin oils, meaning it will not leave you feeling greasy. Nothing worse than being extra oily in the summer!
I love using jojoba oil in the summer months as it helps to soothe any sunburns you may have and even prevents them from peeling.This oil will leave your skin feeling comfortable and nourished no matter what. It also calms dry skin as it has plenty of anti-inflammatory properties. So if you suffer from dry skin, this oil could be the exact thing you need.
