Prolong Your Summer Goddess StatusBy Ashley • Aug 18th, 2010 • Category: FEATURES
Before summer comes to a close, we want to make sure you really go out looking bronzed, beautiful & beachy-keen. Keep your summer glow going a little longer, even in to the fall, with these products & expert tips:
1.) Exfoliate like whoa, on face & body: These bar soaps are a perfect/quick way to slough off dead skin cells without loofahs or exfoliating gloves to give skin a oil-free smooth surface. Jackson Sage‘s hand crafted/small batch bar soap collection cleans deep with only all natural & essential tea-tree & lemon sage oils with skin healing moisture. Why bar soap? Loofahs more often than not harbor tons of germies… kind of defeats the purpose of bathing, if you ask me.

2.) Self-tan with a healthy formula: Use a lotiony/moisturizing self-tanner, like Completely Bare’s model tan.Â The shea butter, aloe, antioxidants & vitamins contained in this sweet smelling formula will alleviate the need for any lotions after application that could strip any of the color or lessen the length of the tan.Â Tip: Cindy Barshop, owner of Completely Bare Spa says: use a cool dryer to speed up dry time while cooling off in this hot, hot heat.
3.) Accent with a pop of color: A beautiful white smile can accent color, while a light dusting of bronzer & POP of bright aqua shadow on eyes will finish this sea-maiden summer look with Sephora’s perfectly paired kit! The step-by-step instructions inside (with mirror) can have you ready for your end-of-summer fun with on-the-go ease.
