Our Tips to Get that Beach Glow
We all love how we look after getting off the beach. Our skin glows, has a slightly dewy finish, and we feel refreshed. But sometimes too much beach time can wreak havoc on our skin – the sun’s UV rays can cause dark spots, increase wrinkles, and increase your risk for skin cancer.
Fortunately, you can get that beach glow at home without the risk of any sun damage. Here’s how.
Take care of your skin
Cleanse your skin with an all-natural soap. Clear your skin of any impurities and give it a fresh start. If it’s been a while since you’ve exfoliated, take the time now. This removes the dead skin from your face, giving it a higher chance of accepting the dewy look you’re trying to accomplish.
Apply a Primer
Next, prime your skin. We love a good toner, a serum and a moisturizer with SPF... don't forget your SPF! This ensures that any tinted moisturizer or BB cream you use will sit on your face and not soak into your skin, helping you achieve that beach glow. After your primer, apply an all-natural highlighter to give your lips and cheeks that gorgeous glow you’re looking for – the Melissa Multi-Stick is a great option as it offers buildable color, allowing you to customize your look.
Color your Lips
Don’t forget to give your lips that sun kissed look with a light pink tinted lip gloss. This will make your lips shiny and give your entire look a little color. You’ll look and feel carefree as you quickly complete your beach look makeup.
Spray your Hair with Beach Spray
It’s not just your skin that loves the beach – your hair does too. Who doesn’t leave the beachy waves their hair gets after a day in the sun and water? Now you can have it at home too. Just wash your hair as normal, letting it air dry. When it’s slightly damp, spray on the Sea Salt Beach Spray and you’ll achieve the tousled ‘I’ve just been to the beach look’ whenever you want.
Color your Nails
The final touch to the perfect beach look is sun-kissed colored nails. Use a color that reflects your natural color and you’ll look as if you just walked off the beach. We love bright pinks and purples for this time of year as they contrast the tan perfectly.
Get your Beach Glow at Home
It’s easy to get your beach glow at home whenever you want. Whether you love the look for the entire summer or you just do it once in a while when you want to feel relaxed and carefree, it’s easy to do.
The key is to take care of your skin all summer – exfoliating more often and giving your skin that soft, natural glow. Next, wear all-natural makeup that’s good for your face and lets its natural beauty shine through while giving it a little glow.
With a few simple products, you can have the beach look whenever you want. How does it get any better than that?
