The best part about summer is getting a gorgeous tan. Here are four of Aphrodite’s favorite skin products that will help keep your skin feeling moisturized while maintaining a flawless sheen to your goddess-like color.
OLAY QUENCH DAILY LOTION PLUS SHIMMER - $8.99 Walgreens
A daily dose of shimmer becomes as easy as putting on lotion in the morning. The lightweight, non-greasy formula is a powerful moisturizer and leaves your skin feeling fresh and hydrated.
JERGENS NATURAL GLOW FIRMING DAILY MOISTURIZER - $8.49 at most drug stores
As one of the first gradual self-tanning moisturizers, Jergens takes it a step further and not only nourishes your skin, but also firms the look of your skin, reducing the look of cellulite. Whether you’re maintaining your tan or trying to gain a natural color, this body lotion will help keep your skin as firm as possible to look great in that brand new bikini.
NARS BODY GLOW – $59 Sephora
While this product does not help get a sunless tan, it does enhance the tan you already have. The fast-drying formula adds Monoi de Tahiti oil to help moisturize your body and keep your skin looking flawless and perfectly sun-kissed. To get the most out of your bottle, incorporate it with your daily moisturizing regimen. Mix in a small amount of Body Glow with an unscented lotion of your choice to add a light color and sheen.
ESTEE LAUDER BRONZE GODDESS SHIMMER POWDER - $39 Macy’s
If you’re on the go and are in need of a quick fix, this bronzer is unique in that it works with all skin colors and agrees with most skin types. It also comes with a portable. It’s a subtle shimmer that appears matte, but your skin will take on a radiant shimmer and a beautiful glow in the light. Use a large powder brush to apply it along the tops of your cheekbones, above your brows, down the bridge of your nose or anywhere the sun naturally hits you. Use the complimentary brush for touch-ups wherever you are. It’s great for contouring and perfect to use from day to night.
