How to Get a Head-to-Toe Summer Glow Without the Sun
Looking to achieve a gorgeous summer glow without basking in the sun’s harmful UV rays? You’ve come to the right place. Read on to discover how you can achieve the ultimate head-to-toe faux summer glow using nothing more than L’Oreal Paris products!
Summer is officially upon us, meaning it’s finally warm enough to bare our legs and show some shoulder. What better complement to our sundresses and bikinis than radiant-looking skin from head to toe? Luckily, there are plenty of easy ways to achieve a summer glow without exposing yourself to skin-damaging UV rays. Ahead, we’re sharing tips on how to achieve a faux summer glow in no time flat!
MOISTURIZE YOUR COMPLEXION
One of the easiest ways to achieve a dewy, glowing complexion? Moisturizing! Believe it or not, a few coats of a hydrating gel or lotion onto damp skin can not only deliver moisture but promote a healthy-looking glow as well. But instead of picking a moisturizer willy-nilly, reach for one that’s lightweight and easy to wear when the temperatures are hotter than hot, like L’Oréal Paris’ Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care—Normal/Dry Skin. The formula—with hyaluronic acid and aloe water—not only quenches skin with moisture and locks it in all day, but also delivers a glowing action to help improve skin’s radiance. The result? Skin that appears immediately more luminous! To use L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care—Normal/Dry Skin, smooth on the formula gently over your facial contours every morning and night after cleansing.
But wait—there’s more! Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care is available in two other variations formulated to meet the specific needs of various skin types. We were lucky enough to get our hands on the formulas courtesy of the brand, and are sharing our review of them all here!
SELF-TANNER TO THE RESCUE
Nothing says summer like a sun-kissed tan…minus the sun, of course. By choosing self-tanners over tanning beds or laying out on the sand, you’re helping protect your skin against damage caused by exposure to harmful UV rays! In case you forgot, prolonged and unprotected exposure to UV rays can contribute to premature signs of skin aging—think: wrinkles and fine lines—as well as some cancers. (No thank you!) To achieve a summer glow without the skin damage, reach for L’Oreal Paris’ Sublime Bronze collection. There’s a wide range of sunless-tanning products to choose from—wipes, sprays, lotions…you name it!—to make getting the bronzed look you want as easy as possible. For a sun-kissed glow plus Broad Spectrum protection on your face, reach for L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Summer Express Wash-Off Face Bronzer Cream SPF 20.
Don’t forget to extend the faux bronze to your body skin, too, with L’Oreal Paris’ Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion! The tinted formula provides an instant bronzed glow with subtle shimmer while a streak-free, natural-looking sunless tan develops. For best results, prep your skin first by sloughing away dead cells with a gentle exfoliator. Next, smooth Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion over your body as you would any lotion, using sparingly around your knees, elbows, and ankles. The best part? You can reapply as much as you wish until your desired level of tan has been reached. The only thing we ask is that you thoroughly wash your hands after application. Orange-hued fingertips never look natural!
