As the Winter Chill sets in,
the summer glow doesn't have to leave.
As soon as the holidays become close, the freeze begins to creep in. With that the dry and pasty skin lurks around like the awkward family members that you try to avoid at family parties. I have never been a huge fake tanner, self tanner, tanning bed sort of girl -but I also cannot deny that I feel miserable as soon as my tan has completely faded.
FakeBake is a great way to fake the healthy, glowing and toned complexion to your skin. It is a washable faux glow that is easily applied and rubbed in. It's instant gratification because you can see the product blending and can carefully apply it evenly. FakeBake is great for you body and face. A great option for an instant bronzed look that washes away easily in the shower, yet will not rub off if it is dried and layered properly. I will say I layered it really thick to appear extra dark for a halloween costume ( see here ) and I got it on my white sweater scarf -though after washing it, my scarf appeared like new. So, basically I'm telling you it is not only a great way to fake a summer glow, but that it is completely washable! Do it, I won't tell anyone.
So these are a few of my favorite products, they are all spectacular and do a fantastic job of keeping my skin soft, healthy and have a natural year round glow. I highly recommend this regimen!
THE PRODUCTS :
| EUCERIN - CALMING CREME : after years and years of trying new products. This is still the best winter lotion I've ever used. It is thick, but not greasy and has a slight cooling effect on the skin. It relaxes cranky, dry winter skin and calms any slight itchiness. |

| SONIA KASHUK - DECADANCE MAGNIFICENCE : a fabulous shimmering body souffle that illuminates your skin and lets the light highlight your skin in all the right places. |
| LIMEGREEN - LIP-HAIR-BODY BALM : limegreen is a great brand that makes all natural, hand-picked ingredients for their all natural products. They use unrefined, certified organic, raw, wild harvested, and steam distilled ingredients. Each product supports local business and seeks the best ingredients. This balm is the best, it does it all and I've yet to purchase anything better. |
