This season, Jergens has relaunched its Natural Glow gradual tanners with a new, nearly odorless formula (we got a slight whiff of DHA after a few hours of wear, but it’s definitely less noticeable). Jergens Natural Glow +Protect Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 20 ($9.99, walgreens.com) not only bronzes beautifully, it protects skin from the sun, too.
The 5 Rules Of Self-Tanning
Leave the sparkly orange body makeup to Dancing With The Stars. These body bronzers are subtle and natural looking. We love Tarte‘s Maracuja Rainforest Glow ($34, qvc.com), a tinted waterproof body bronzer with a matte finish that doesn’t rub off on clothes. LORAC Island TANtalizer Creamy Body Oil ($30, loraccosmetics.com) has a subtle sheen and a coconut scent that smells like summer. Both wash off with soap and water.
10 Steps To Summer-Ready Legs
There’s something different about Living Proof Satin Hair Serum ($29, livingproof.com) — the formula contains neither silicone nor oil, so it won’t weigh down hair. A single pump applied to damp hair will lock out frizz to give you a smoother blowout.
How To Prevent Frizzy Hair
Forget sprays, lotions and oils. We’re obsessed with the newest sunscreen delivery system: mousse. Both Vichy Capital Soleil Lightweight Foaming Lotion ($28.50, vichyusa.com) and L’Oréal Paris Sublime Sun Feather Light Foaming Lotion ($10.99, lorealparisusa.com) are oil-free and not sticky. Plus, they’re fun to apply.
Does Your Hair Need Sunscreen, Too?
Even if you spend the work week under fluorescent bulbs, these illuminators will cast your complexion in the most flattering light (think sunset by the water). MAC Strobe Liquid in Golden Elixir ($31, maccosmetics.com) is a bronze-gold shimmer, while Tom Ford Beauty Skin Illuminator in Fire Lust ($65, neimanmarcus.com) has a rosy tint. Mix a few drops into your BB cream for an all-over glow.
10 Things Every Woman Needs In Her Makeup Wardrobe
This summer’s must-have polishes aren’t just bold, they glow — like this standout purple, DJ Play That Song ($8, essie.com), from the Essie neons 2013 collection. Illamasqua’s UV Glow Nail Varnish ($20, illamasqua.com) takes the trend a step further with polishes that actually glow in the dark under UV light. Just imagine how cool your pedicure will look in those strappy dancing shoes.
The Most Covetable New Nail Polish Shades For Summer 2013
The Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry Razor’s ($10.99, pgestore.com) moisturizing bars negate the need for shave gel and save you a step in the shower, and we love its easy-to-maneuver shape. Bumble and Bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo ($24) and Surf Creme Rinse Conditioner ($25, bumbleandbumble.com) enhance hair’s body to make the most of your beachy waves — because summer’s too short to blow dry.
Find The Best Shampoo For Your Hair Type
If your skin gets color from the sun, chances are it has pink and red tones mixed in with the tan. That’s why reddish bronzers like Bobbi Brown Face & Body Bronzing Duo ($42, bobbibrowncosmetics.com) look so natural. Too Faced Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer ($30, toofaced.com), with its built-in blush, operates on the same idea.
Best Bronzers To Fake A Glow
Conquer the greasies with this mattifying duo from Philosophy’s new Total Matteness line. The Pore-Minimizing & Mattifying Cleanser + Mask ($25, philosophy.com) does double duty to absorb oil with glacial clay and exfoliate with ultrafine grains. The Oil-Free, Mattifying Pore Eraser ($40) instantly creates a smooth, shine-free finish on skin, while lentil seed extract and salicylic acid refine pores.
20 Products That Leave Skin Matte
The eye area and hands are the first to show sun damage, but also the spots most of us miss when it comes to daily sunscreen application. Supergoop! SPF 37 Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream ($45, supergoop.com), with its fine line-fighting oat peptide complex and pretty, illuminating sheen, makes us wonder why there aren’t more eye treatments out there with SPF. Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Hand Treatment ($7.99, available in July) not only helps fade spots with vitamin C, it packs broad spectrum SPF 30 to head off future freckling for younger looking hands.
