1. Get Some Color with St. Tropez
Everyone knows one of the best parts about summer is getting that tan on.

If you don’t already know about it, St. Tropez tanner is an amazing gradual self tanner that will work wonders on any skin tone, leaves no streaks and hydrates the skin!
2. Moisturize with Fresh Skincare
Now that you have that natural healthy glow, keeping your skin moisturized is the next essential step. Hydrated skin = glowing skin. It’s important to moisturize daily, especially in the summer when the harsh sun can easily dry your skin out! Always moisturize after cleansing your skin and before applying your makeup.
