Spring is Here: How to Get the Ultimate Sun-kissed Glow
With the entrance of spring comes the introduction of floral dresses, sleeveless shirts, and a strong desire for gleaming, sun-kissed skin.
Whether you're planning a trip or simply looking to transform your dull, depleted skin, there are plenty of easy ways to enhance your natural glow ready for spring. If you start now!
Below, the formula for the ultimate sun-kissed glow.
#1: Buff Away Old, Dull Winter Skin
Any glow-enhancing skincare routine needs to start with exfoliation. Exfoliating helps buff away dead skin cells as well as dirt and oil buildup to reveal a smooth, fresh, and glowing complexion. Not only that, it enables other skincare products like your serums, creams, and oils to penetrate the skin more effectively, enhancing their benefits.
If you plan on self-tanning this spring, exfoliation is key to getting that even summer glow minus streaks and blotches. Never use self-tanner before scrubbing your skin from head to toe. Added benefits of exfoliation include improving skin tone, banishing blemishes, fading discoloration, and evening out skin texture.
Try our Matcha Face Scrub for the face, and our Blueberry Kush CBD Body Scrub for the rest of your body. They're packed with antioxidants, suitable for all skin types, and guaranteed to leave skin looking and feeling instantly glowy and smooth.
#2: Polish Your Lady Lumps
Maybe it's not bikini weather, and maybe you're not planning on showing off your butt or boobs until summer, but it's never too early to get them looking smooth and perky.
Try our Acai Your Boobies Polish + Buns of Glowry Polish. These products are clinically proven to lift, firm, and tighten the skin on your butt and cleavage area in just four weeks of daily use. That's thanks to powerhouse actives like retinol, wheat protein, and vitamin E.
Besides making your skin look smoother and firmer, they'll help prep your skin for that self-tan sesh.
Hydration is fundamental for dewy, radiant skin. Unfortunately, dry skin doesn't reflect light well, which is why this skin type often looks dull and lackluster. You can change that by exfoliating regularly and moisturizing daily.
Try our Body Star Perfecting Cream, a luxurious lotion to give you that deeply hydrated, subtly luminous tone while reducing discoloration and fading stretchmarks. For the face, reach for our Cream Skin Face Moisturizer, a hyaluronic acid infused face cream to intensely hydrate the skin and give you a gorgeous healthy glow.
Self-tanning is a safe and effective way to get a head-to-toe sun-kissed glow. Nowadays, you will find tons of beauty products formulated to give your skin a subtle bronze. That said, you'll still need to invest in a high quality product and do all the necessary prep beforehand to ensure a smooth and even tan.
Our favorite self-tanner is our Hotter in Person Blur and Bronze Cream. This silky body cream is made with hydrating jojoba oil, brightening strawberry, soothing ginseng, and naturally bronzing DHA to deliver a subtle shimmer and gradual tan without UV exposure.
Hotter In Person helps to conceal uneven skin texture for an evenly bronzed, “blurred” effect -- the kind you see on Instagram and TikTok.
One layer of even application results in a natural, sun-kissed glow. Use daily for an even deeper tan. Make sure you exfoliate before using. It's also important to avoid using heavy creams, oils, or deodorant before self-tanning to prevent interfering with the process.
#5: Add Some Sparkle
To get your skin gleaming from head to toe, you'll want to try a body shimmer like our Moon Lit Shimmer Oil. This sparkling body oil is nourishing, fast absorbing, and infused with gold shimmer for a radiant glow on the go. It's made with a blend of chai spices, witch hazel, and vanilla to brighten skin, tighten pores, and leave skin looking luminous.
You can use it on your cheekbones, cupid's bow, jawline, cleavage, collar bones, and thighs -- or wherever you want some added sparkle.
Moon Lit Shimmer Oil is buildable on all skin tones so you can enjoy a customizable glow ranging from sun-kissed to dramatic dazzle. Plus, it offers anti-aging benefits thanks to vanilla's free radical fighting abilities.
#6: Dust on Some Bronzer + Highlighter
Now you're all tanned and shimmered, you can enhance your glow even more by incorporating bronzer and highlighter into your makeup routine.
After your concealer, mascara, eyeshadow, and cream blush, apply a dusting of bronzer and highlighter across your cheekbones and bridge of your nose, as well as over your cleavage area.
You'll look naturally sun tanned with this makeup look! It's a tip makeup artists swear by for getting clients dewy and sun-kissed ready for spring break or summer!
#7: Stay Protected
Nothing steals your glow more than sun damaged skin. That's why it's essential to start making sunscreen application part of your daily skincare routine if you want to save your skin, preserve your natural glow, and enhance it.
Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen formulated with SPF 30 to stay protected while outdoors. If you're spending a few hours or the whole day outside, make sure you re-apply sunscreen throughout the day. Dermatologists recommend re-applying once every two hours for maximum protection.
At the end of the day, glowing skin is healthy skin. So, if you want that dewy glow all your fave influencers have, start protecting your skin and showing it some TLC!
With spring just around the corner, we're all getting ready to glow like the sun! Now that we'll be showing off our legs and arms, it seems only natural to get our body looking their glowiest versions.
Follow the above tips to get a gorgeous, natural sun-kissed glow without spending all day in the sun. All you need are a few good products, and patience! Pretty soon, you'll be radiantly bronzed and beautiful -- and ready for spring!
