So as you guys may know, spring is here and summertime is right around the corner. I love this time of the year not only because it’s my birthday season, but the sun is shining, you get a sun-kissed tan, school is out and you get to wear the cutest clothes (sundresses, shorts, matching sets, skirts ect.). (Speaking of, you guys already know I have been buying some of the cutest things for this summer, haul coming soon!)
Rihanna got everybody and their mama into body highlighters ever since she came out with the ‘Fenty Beauty Body Lava.’ I wanted to purchase it, but when I saw she was selling it for $60.00 a bottle, I was like love ya Rih, but imma catch you later gurl!
In the meantime, I found some that work well with my skin and are affordable. I’ll catch that Body Lava when everyone else is not checking for it and it goes on sale.
Anyways, I am OBSESSED with bronzed, sun-kissed, tan skin! I know what you’re thinking, umm you’re black, your skin is already tan? Yes, and I love it might I add, but I also like to ENHANCE my smooth caramel-colored skin with a little sparkle. I’m trying to look like this all Summer 2018 while manifesting my handsome, tall and wealthy husband:
Here is a tip for you ladies, during the Fall and Winter seasons, use this time to really take care of your skin (you should do so everyday, but really go hard during these seasons). So, by the time spring and summer come around you’re glowing and shinin’ bright honey.
Here are some helpful regimen tips for glowing skin:
- Exfoliate your entire body, by either dry brushing or using bath gloves/washcloth in the shower
- Drink Water, Water, Water! Keep you body hydrated, our body are made up for 60% water anyway.
- Maintain a healthy diet, keep your skin clear and bright.
- Use a good body wash/sugar scrub (I use all natural ones).
- When you’re done showering, take a towel and pat yourself dry.
- While you’re damp apply a all natural lotion/butter.
Now on to my CURRENT favorite bronzers of all time…
I was searching for the perfect body oil online for hours and I couldn’t find one I actually liked until I went to YouTube and seen a video on this Bali Body Shimmering Body Oil and my heart fluttered. The way this sparkled in the sun, the bronze color, the smell and it’s vegan, so ya girl could not resist. Now, this is an extremely light dry oil, if you’re looking for something heavy, this one is not for you.
This is a VERY popular glowing highlighter (great for women of color), even celebrity’s use this. I actually found out about this from ‘THE REAL,’ Tamera and Adrienne Bailon’s makeup artist use this on there skin and they both always have a pretty glow. This one is very pigmented and beeeaaautiful. It gives you a deep gold glow and gave me a tan. I got a sample size from Amazon just because I wanted to try it, it was a bit pricey. The sample size was $16.00 and the full size is $42.00.
Highlighters are my best friend, like I looovveee them. Like I said currently these are the ones that i’m using, but there is always room for more. If you have some body highlighter that you love, please let me know in the comment section!
Peace, love and glow up..
