How to: Keep Your Summer Glow Through Fall

How to: Keep Your Summer Glow Through Fall

Invariably, despite the piles of sunscreen I slather on daily, every summer I get a bit of a tan.  This summer due to a few beach excursions, I got a serious tan.  I’m not complaining — I love the glow that comes from a from a little sun exposure.  But when fall comes that glow tends to fade, and that process can be pretty nasty if you don’t have the proper tools for transitioning your summer glow to fall.

How to keep your summer glow:

1.  Exfoliate

Keep your skin tone even with regular exfoliation.  I use both chemical (retinol) and physical (scrub) exfoliants.

Try: YBF  Prep Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion crystals polish, skin brightening alpha arbutin and niacin help balance uneven pigmentation.


Try: Vichy Laboratoires LiftActiv Retinol HA Night

Triple dose of hyaluronic acid*** + Retinol-A Complex.


2.  Fake your glow

Use a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation.  You have the triple-duty benefit of color, moisture and SPF

Try:  Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer


3.  Add Warmth

A little well placed bronzer goes a long way towards looking like you just left St. Barts, even if you just left your cubicle.

Try: Glo Minerals gloBronze


4.  Body Glow

A subtle sheen on your legs, shoulders, decollete and arms, is the finishing touch.

Try:  Nuxe Golden Shimmer Dry Oil

This lovely oil can even be used on your hair!

    Hi Tracey, I love your blog. I mean, seriously. I always read the posts and all the *you might like* stuff.
    Now, i never saw any articles about make up or hair dos for brides. You’d have a guaranteed place in heaven for a post like *take 10 years off your face in two months*.
    Could you please consider my requests? I’m planning my wedding for 14 months from now and I’m desperate to look stunning.
    Thank you.
