Did you know that we are fast-approaching one of the most depressing days of the year? That’s right; it even has the nickname “Blue Monday.” Blue Monday falls on the last Monday of January each year and experts say it’s depressing because the holiday season has gone and there isn’t much to look forward to besides more cold days. However, I’ve got some good news. Have you ever heard that phrase “fake it til you make it”? (Of course you have.) Well, we’re going to tell you how to fake a happy, sun-kissed glow in the middle of winter without damaging your skin.
Tanning beds have long been under fire for overexposing individuals to concentrated harmful rays. Laying out is also a no-go since most of the country is in a blanket of gray cloud cover. Tanning lotions might do the trick but they are loaded with chemicals that can seep into your skin and wreak havoc. So what are you to do?
Well, firstly, let me introduce you to the Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronze Concentrate. This can be added to any moisturizer to give you a sun-kissed glow—wherever you want it. Since it’s Dr. Hauschka, you know that it is comprised of only the most natural ingredients like fruit oil and plant extract. It’s gentle and soothing and also gives you a healthy glow. For best results, exfoliate first.
Secondly, you can fake a bronze complexion with GloMinerals Bronze. This bronzer has antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E, and green tea extract. It also does not contain Talc, which is present in things like plastics and ceramics, because of questions raised about its link with disease and cancers.
Lastly, 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Powdered Blush will polish off your sun-kissed look without making your makeup looked cakey or thick. This blush is 100% natural, 100% vegan and also contains antioxidants. This means that these products will not only give you the healthy glow you want, but won’t disrupt your skin’s natural balance in the process.
