4 Ways To Get That Summer Glow


Got glow? That summer glow?

Hopefully this summer you’re able to let loose a little bit, put your feet up, and maybe barbecue-it-up with close friends.

Here are a few of my glow-inducing tips to check out. Shine at your next pool party or dinner date!

1. Start fresh. Dump out that old makeup and any chemical-laden makeup, and start fresh. Take a look back at our May Makeup Bag Makeover for a little inspiration. 

2. Protect your inner glow. Before you smooth out your complexion with foundation, be sure to protect with a little SPF. Andalou Naturals Oil Control Beauty Balm SPF 30, perfect for all skin types, is a 3-in-1, non-GMO product made with organic ingredients.

3. Need to bring back the glow? Have you ever tried natural “brightening” products, with little or no success? To date, it really hasn’t been the forte of most natural skin care brands. Purists have had to rely on their green juice and high potency anti-inflammatory diets alone to really deliver (which, of course, is the foundation). But hey, we can all use a little extra support on the outside too. Try the MyChelle Apple Brightening Series, which is a UV recovery line that really does deliver brightness and is excellent for both men and women. 

The therapeutic superstars of this line are malic acid, gallic acid and apple plant stem cells, which are effectively able to brighten, alleviate discoloration like age spots, and support the skin’s self-repair mechanisms. Overall, this line of skin care feels more like a luxurious high-end spa or department store brand, except without all the synthetic and chemical ingredients. 

4. Summer scents? There is nothing quite like brightening the mood and scenting your lighter summer wardrobe with a delicious, natural, vegan and cruelty-free fresh scent. One luscious scent this season is Pacifica Brazilian Mango Grapefruit, a cross between peach and apricot, with pineapple undertones, this delicious blend mingles sultry, fleshy mango with bright, tart grapefruit. For a sultry, woodsy edge, try layering with Pacifica Tibetan Mountain Temple, with Vetiver and Indonesian Patchouli. The Pacifica line of candles are equally divine, and great paired with drinks on the veranda at dusk.
