bb1 Get the Glow

From body scrub to faux tanner, we’ll have you glowing in no time!
Step One: Exfoliate. Scrubz All Natural Sugar Body Scrub ($25) will soften your skin, while leaving you smelling sweet and fresh!
Step Two: Soothe and Nourish: Kahuna Organic Body Lotion ($20.00) smells like paradise. It is super-hydrating and fast-absorbing, locking in moisture with coconut and macadamia oils. Transport yourself to the tropics every time you moisturize!
Step Three: Polish, polish, polish. Origins Never a Dull Moment ($25) brightening face polisher freshens your skin with fruit enzymes.
Step Four: Fake It. Origins Faux Glow ($18.50) is a self-tanner made specifically for your face. The color goes on smoothly, while rosemary and orange soothe the skin. Another option is Bare Escentuals Faux Tan gives you an all-over glow in just three hours while hydrating your skin at the same time ($22).

Tousled Tresses
Get soft, supple, beach-ready hair in minutes.
Step One: Moisturize. LUSH I Love Juicy shampoo is perfect for dried out swimmer’s hair. Seaweed ingredients soften your strands, while the citrus infusions leave you ready to jump start your day ($26.75). Condition with Bumble and Bumble’s Alojoba Conditioner($22). This moisture-rich, color compatible formula is made from Aloe Vera, Jojoba Seed Oil and cucumber.
Step Two: Roll with It: Get that tossed and tousled beach look with Beach Bag Elixir, which contains a mix of sea minerals and organic oils – it’s our favorite product for year-round, elegantly-disheveled locks.

Soak up the Sun
Say ‘I Do’ to healthy, protected skin.
Step One: Protect the Body. Juice Beauty SPF 30 Sheer Moisturizer protects your skin while replenishing its natural nutrients! This moisturizer ($29) even includes anti-aging ingredients so you can soak up sun without regretting it later.
Step Two: Face Facts! Don’t forget about your face while you’re lathering up the rest of your body with sun protection. Korres Watermelon Sunscreen Face Cream SPF 30 smells juicy and delicious, and is rich in vitamins and carbohydrates for your skin ($28).
Step Three: ReHydrate. After you lay out, make sure to spoil your sun-dried skin with an after-sun soother. We like Burt’s Bees Aloe & Linden Flower After Sun Soother ($10). The coconut oil and bee pollen revive your skin while replenishing its nature moisture.
