#TBT: 5 Hacks to Prolong Your Summer Glow

Whether you tan easily or remain a fair beach goer, prolong your summer glow with these tricks to extend that  “just came from the beach” glow with these easy tricks.

1) There is no such thing as over moisturizing. Remember to apply day and night, especially when you get out of the shower. If you have really dry skin, use a body oil all over your body after toweling off like Espa’s Soothing Body Oil.

2) Hot water can dehydrate your skin, so keep the temperature cooler and use a shower cream or gel rather than a foam.

3) Exfoliating once a week helps get rid of dead skin cells. Try dry brushing with Daily Concepts Dual Texture Scrubber before you shower for softer skin but be sure not to exfoliate with glycolic acid or salicylic acid as it will cause your tan to fade.

4) Drink tons of water and eat foods rich in beta-carotene such as carrots and sweet potatoes. You are what you eat, and leafy fruits and vegetables are essential for healthy skin from the inside out.

5) Enhance your glow with a subtle bit of shimmer!  We love the Figs&Rouge Wonder Love Charm Glow Elixir. It’s universally appealing on all skin tones and adds that little extra something for the warmer days (or at least when you want to pretend it’s warm).
