After Glow

June 17th, 2009


Achieving a sunny disposition.

Every good look has a sun-lift finish...

Summer's the time to keep your base relatively sheer. I am finding happiness with liquid sunshine in a bottle that perfects your skin's natural radiance. These light, translucent liquids, instantly imparts a smooth glow that doesn't so much say "tan" as it says "nice skin".

Not only do they provide a glowing complexion, some offer skin care firming benefits and are packed with vitamins to brighten and revitalize the skin.

-Josie Maran's Bronzing Argan Oil

Achieve healthy-looking color with these simple tips:

-Alone or mixed with your daily moisturizer to create a bare radiance. Just add two drops to your fingertips and rub together. Then pat lightly on areas where the sun would naturally hit, like the cheeks, bridge of nose and forehead. (Be prepared, it will definitely leave a dewy look!)

-Or try mixing it with your favorite tint or foundation for a light bronzing aurora . Add two to three drops to your face product, and mix it in the palm of your hand. Use a brush to pick up the product and lightly apply it to your skin for a beautiful, seamless glow.

-Can be used on the body, and the Bronzing Argan Oil can even be used in the hair.

Sure, the story behind your gorgeous glow might not be as glamorous as a Caribbean getaway.

But it's sure to keep your skin healthier and more vibrant, You Glow Girl!

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.
