As school is starting and tans are quickly fading (sigh), I decided to come up with a list of holy grail products I use to keep my skin looking like I just came back from a tropical vacay. Enjoy!
The first product that I just recently found thanks to my sister (shoutout to you @ellen!) is the Clarins radiance Plus- Golden Glow Booster. This is truly a lifesaver. You mix a few drops of the oil in with your favorite moisturizer (mine would be either one Clinique or Bobbi Brown), and a few hours later your skin is radiant!
Tip: I like to put it on before bed 2-3 times a week so I wake up with a glowing complexion.
The Fresh Peony Spot Correcting Brightening Essence (yes, it’s a mouthful) has worked wonders for my skin. Not only does it smell amazing, it moisturizes and lightens any sun spots or blemishes. It leaves your skin looking bright and dewy throughout the day.
Tip: Use both at night and in the morning. For best results, use along with facial sunscreen to protect your skin from additional dark spots.
This mask instantly smooths, clears, and brightens your skin. It’s citrus smell helps you wake up in the morning, perfect for easing into those 8 a.m. classes (yes, I do have one as a senior ugh).
Tip: The Vitamin C in this mask brightens skin. Also, exfoliating once or twice a week helps to maintain an even-looking fake tan (perfect to use with the Clarins oil… see #1).
Hourglass highlighters are the best I have ever used. As a girl who only wears natural makeup, highlighters were initially quite intimidating; however, the ambient light highlighters by Hourglass add the perfect touch of glow to your skin without making you look like a sparkling disco-ball.
Hands down one of the best bronzers I have ever tried. This product looks natural, but leaves your skin looking sun kissed and radiant! Definitely worth the splurge.
