Get A Summer Glow Without Going To The Beach

Summer is all about achieving the perfect tan, but it doesn’t necessarily take a trip to the beach to get sun-kissed, glowing skin.

Whether you care about protecting your skin from UV damage or you’re just more of a snow bunny, you can get a summer glow without lying in the scorching heat all day. Here’s how to look like a beach babe without hitting the sand!


The easiest way to get a natural looking tan without the sun is by using a self-tanner. Depending on the self tanner you use, you can fool anyone into thinking you’ve spent all summer at the beach. To achieve the best glow, be sure to prepare your skin first by exfoliating. After exfoliating is the best time to use a self tanner because your skin will be smooth and fresh, preventing the self-tanner from streaking.

A little shimmer can really elevate tanned skin, but you have to be careful because it’s really easy to over-do it. To keep your bronzer looking natural, dust a little bit on your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin line. Make sure the colour isn’t too dark for your skin so it blends in. Try an all-over bronzer to add some shimmer to your shoulders, arms and legs.

The summer heat calls for ditching your heavy foundation and opting for a lightweight tinted moisturizer. A tinted moisturizer will add a creamy glow to your skin but will still provide enough coverage so that you don’t feel completely bare faced. Plus, most tinted moisturizers offer some level of SPF so there’s no need to layer sunscreen on over top, making it a quick and easy all in one for soft, tanned skin.

After a day of sitting out in the sun, our cheeks tend to get that healthy, rosy flush that perfectly complements tanned skin. To get the same look sans the sunshine, opt for a shade of blush that matches your natural flush, normally a deep raspberry tone. Also, go for a blush that’s in cream form to maintain that dewy sheen on the skin.
