Unless you’re lucky enough to be able to nip off to somewhere exotic for some much needed winter sunshine, there’s a good chance that you’re feeling a bit dull, like the rest of us. Your summer tan (achieved with full sun protection, of course!) is but a distant memory and your summer holiday seems like it’s a lifetime away while you navigate the hurricanes and sleet of a British winter.
That hour when the sun goes down and the world looks golden is the closest you’ll get to enjoying a glow – but never fear, because Pure Beauty has your back! We’ve dug up a whole selection of products to help you to feel glowy and gorgeous. Here’s just five of them:
This product from Evolve Organic Beauty combines skincare and sun protection to create one product which will both protect you from the sun’s harmful rays while giving your skin a glow. It contains mineral light reflecting natural pigments for a luminous dewy finish while the broad spectrum SPF comes from non-nano mineral-based zinc oxide, which is certified as “reef-safe” and therefore won’t hurt the environment.
If you want to glow but aren;t a fan of the full-on fake tan look, then this body lotion fro, St. Tripes is the ultimate compromise. The lotion moisturises the skin while giving an instant hint of bronze that immediately illuminates the skin. It then has a slight tan which will develop gradually, giving you a gentle glow which makes you look healthier all over. It can be reapplied daily, or however often you prefer, to build the colour or maintain a sunkissed look.
If you’re planning on wearing something which shows your legs but don’t want to commit to an all-over fake tan, this product from This Works is the one for you. The powerful, tinted serum is full of vitamins to enhance and repair skin, while also containing a tint which instantly enhances legs and helps combat uneven skin tone and bruising. It’s a non-greasy formula which absorbs to give the legs a deep moisturising effect and has natural caramel included, which will add warmth and immediately transform the skin with a sun-kissed glow.
If you’re ready to just grab the self tan and get that all-over glow then you should definitely consider this tanning mousse from South Seas. It has a rich brown tint for easy application which dries quickly into a satisfying tropical glow, allowing you to wear and go. You don’t need to wait hours before you can get dressed (although you DO need to wait six hours before you shower!) and the colour will develop to a longer-lasting tan.
This face cream from Decleor is a multifunctional product; it contains a blend of essential oils and hyaluronic acid to smooth the appearance of fine lines, as well as beta-carotene which gives your skin an instant glow. The formula is designed to help to prevent the early signs of ageing, as well as giving you a healthy glow which allows you to go make-up free. It’s suitable for all skin types and can be used daily.
