Summer 2017 Favourites for Sun Kissed Skin

So far I have been making the most of this beautiful weather with cottage weekends, beach days and simple walks through the neighborhood. While it is super important to protect your skin from the sun’s rays, there are other ways to attain perfect, sun kissed skin. No one will ever know the difference!

{Summer 2017 Favourites for Sun Kissed Skin}

There are options for everyone – so if you are afraid of looking “orange” or “fake” fear no more! Along with beautifully bronzed skin it is a good idea to properly prep your skin in advance for the most even and natural looking complexion.

Prepping for sun kissed skin

Tweezerman LED 15x Mini Mirror

Ok so first thing’s first – healthy, moisturized skin. I love this handy little mirror because it magnifies like no other that I have ever used and has a light-up LED frame around the edge which you can turn on to see even more clearly! This is a great gadget when plucking any unwanted eyebrow hairs, along with identifying clogged pores or dry patches. Once you can see what you have to work with you can use your favourite cleanser – see mine blogged about here (and exfoliater if needed) followed by a moisturizer to properly give your skin the hydration it needs. I could not get over how effective this little mirror works – and it’s small enough to fit into a purse or clutch! You can purchase on of these nifty little things for $32 CAD at
