If, like us, you’re feeling the need to bare shoulders and strut around in sandals at the slightest sight of sunshine, read on. Tis the season to prep skin for summer and we’re feeling the gradual glow vibe this month. It’s the perfect way to give your complexion a boost subtly without the hassle of overnight applications and streaky skin.
There’s no better feeling than moisturising your full body after a deep cleansing scrub. And with gradual tan that’s more achievable. There’s no need to moisturise and tan because your product is doing both – which we adore. So, here’s a roundup of our favourites available in Aqua Sana Boutiques:
Decléor Aroma Confort Systeme Corps Gradual Glow Hydrating Body Milk (250ml, £35)
This gradual glow moisturiser with a light, melting texture is easily absorbed into the skin and offers a beautifully natural sun-kissed look from the first application. Naturally active ingredients include Magnolia Essential Oil to soothe the skin and help protect it from free radicals, Narcissus Bulb to help prolong a natural or fake tan and preserve the skin’s youthful appearance, and Vanilla Extract to protect the skin against external irritants.
Best for using every day until the desired bronzing effect is reached. Paraben-free and suitable for all skin types.
Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion (200ml, £36)
This luxurious, gradual tan body lotion instantly moisturises the skin, whilst Vegetan, naturally derived from wheat, subtly builds an even, natural looking tan.
Specially formulated with anti-oxidant rich green tea for a more even skin tone and Red Algae extract to help ensure long-lasting hydration. Enriched with exquisite Abyssinian and Elderberry Seed Oils to nourish and condition, skin is left feeling soft, velvety smooth and with a beautiful golden glow.
Couple with Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser for Face (50ml, £31) for an even head to toe tan.
