We're all due for some summer sun after a long, grueling, pasty white winter. So what to do once you've achieved that sunkissed glow? Maintain it! We’ve got the tips on how to preserve that tan without overdoing it. Intrigued? Read on!
Exfoliation is the first crucial step to keeping your summer glow. It’s important to exfoliate your whole body with a salt free product and pay special attention to the rough areas of your skin (knees and elbows). Use Bare Minerals Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser to see brighter and smoother skin while exfoliating.
Voted one of InStyle's Best Beauty Buys of 2011, CE Ferulic is a skin care essential. The formula contains vitamin C, a natural anti-oxidant that helps the fight free radicals and harmful UVA/UVB rays that are so detrimental to our skin. The vitamin also helps to brighten the skin, creating a natural radiance. It is a perfect addition to any skincare regimen, but is particularly effective for those who have dull, dry or sun damaged skin.
Additionally, the potent treatment contains vitamin E, which acts as an incredible emollient that hydrates the skin cells. Ferulic acid, another main ingredient, acts as a barrier to ultraviolet light -which in turn helps reduce the amount of hyperpigmentation, or discoloration of the skin, we suffer when we're exposed to the sun.
Use CE Ferulic in the morning after cleansing by applying three to four drops all over your face and neck. Follow with moisturizer and sunscreen.
