How to Keep that Summer Glow
KEEPING THAT SUMMER GLOW
As we inch deeper and deeper in to the Fall season, the temperatures start to dip and the days grow colder and shorter. While we transition ourselves mentally in to another season, we cannot overlook the impact the weather has on our skin. It’s important to protect your skin through the seasonal transitions and most importantly, do your best to keep the effortless summer glow going. Yes, it’s hard to say goodbye to summer, but sometimes it’s even harder to say goodbye to that freshly bronzed skin! Well, you don’t need summer to continue your summer glow! By following a few quick and easy steps for your fall routine, you can keep that summer glow look all year long!
Don’t overthink your steps when planning to exfoliate. Sure, you can get all the products in the world, but sometimes less is more when you are treating your skin! Why not take a natural approach to exfoliating your body this season with an exfoliating natural loofah! The fibers from the natural loofah help to cleanse and revitalize your skin in just one step, and since you are already in the shower, it makes the step that much easier! If you are someone looking for a gentler exfoliant, try a bamboo charcoal infused body sponge. The charcoal helps to control oils while giving your skin that natural glow, all while gently exfoliating the impurities away!
Now that your skin has been prepped and it receptive to products and treatments, it’s time to moisturize to help protect that new layer of skin! Grandma’s Secret Miracle Moisturizer is a clean all-natural product that helps nourish, moisturize and protect your skin from dryness! Especially during a transitional weather period, it’s important to use a heavier moisturizer to protect your skin from the dry, cold air! If you also have anything coconut based in your house, that is a great alternative to an all-natural moisturizing solution!
GET THAT GLOW
Now on to the fun part! Who does’t love a little summer glow in the fall, and maybe in to the winter! Now that our skin is prepped and carrying that natural glow from the first two steps, it’s time to enhance that glow with a some bronzing products! Sticking with our all-natural theme, I’ve selected products from JOAH to help with the third step. JOAH is a K-Beauty brand that takes pride in their quality ingredients and ground-breaking formulas!
BRONZE + HIGLIGHT
Next, we BRONZE! Now the word “contouring” can mean many things and it can scare a lot of people off. Don’t run away just yet. JOAH’s Be My Everything Powder Contour makes it easy to contour at home without over doing it! Brush the contour along your cheekbones, jawline and along the sides of your nose. Blend the product in and you’re done. There is no harm in being conservative on your first try!
To brighten the cheeks, I like uses their Blush and Bronze palette – you can swipe your brush across both colors to get a warm pink that you can dab on your cheeks! To truly bring the glow home, for the final step, lightly add some highlighter to your cheekbones, cupids bow and brow bones for the finishing touch on your glow!
