If, like me, you are conscious of the sun's effect on your skin and don't have time to lay around getting a tan (even with +30 SPF on) then you will love these products that help you achieve that healthy summer glow. The added bonus? They are all budget friendly!
For a natural looking tan that doesn't compromise my health, I look to the following products:-
LACURA BB Cream - available at Aldi for AUD7.99
I use the Medium Tint colour because I am olive skinned. For the days I don't want a full face of make-up but just an even coverage that looks like I have gone to some effort, I love this. I don't look made up, my complexion just looks natural, even and fresh.
LACURA Foundation - available at Aldi for AUD5.99
For days, and nights, when a full make-up face is required, this has been my go to foundation now for a few years. I have tried many foundations in my time (being a make-up artist by trade) and for me, this one just works. I like the coverage, I like how it blends, I like its staying power and for those that are budget conscious, you will love its price!
DOVE Summer Glow Body Lotion - available at supermarkets and pharmacies for approximately AUD7.00 per 250ml bottle.
Hands down, this has been my 'go to' self tanning lotion for years. The reason is two fold: a) it gives a gorgeous and natural looking tan to my skin and b) it does not have an offensive scent. I use this as my sole body moisturiser during spring and summer, and some other times of the year if I want a tanned look. Upon first use for the season, I find it takes about 3 days to build up to the colour I like and then I just maintain it. I constantly receive questions about where I have been - on holidays, out in the sun etc. If you like self tanning and want a lotion that doesn't streak, this is it.
With these 3 'Not So Secrets' out and about, have a fabulous weekend enjoying the sunshine - or looking like you already have!
