If it’s chilly and not quite spring-like in your neck of the woods, don’t fret, spring will be here eventually and when it does arrive, you’ll want to be ready! “Ready” means willing and able to shed those tights, boots, long sleeves and so on. For me, it’s always liberating on that first sunny day when you can loose the tights and your legs can breathe again. While self-tanner pre-Memorial Day may seem aggressive, a subtle glow never hurt anyone!
Enter St. Tropez Skin Illuminator, the pocket-size product that was all the rage at London Fashion Week. It finishes the skin with a gorgeous iridescent sheen, can be worn alone or to complement a tan. Now available in Rose Gold, Gold and Violet, each shade contours and highlights, whether you want that 70′s deep golden glow, flushed/flirty polish of rose, or the best-selling illumination magic of Violet, this collection has you covered. Finally a product you can use both before AND after spending time in the sun, a must for sure!
Another personal favorite is L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze One Day Tinted Gel. This bronze colored gel provides a sheer, buildable tint of color that lasts for one day! Maple extract and caramel are natural colorants that give a totally natural glow, so it blends well on even the palest of legs. The color makes it easy to rub the gel on evenly and i dries in a matter of seconds without a chemical smell. I used it recently and loved how it gave my legs the perfect glow and even though I was worried it might streak if I went to the gym that night, it did no such thing, it stayed put until I scrubbed it off in the shower. Glowing perfection!
