Get a Safe Summertime Glow

The sun is shining in Chicagoland and we are all happy to be spending time on the beach instead of bundled up indoors. There’s something about sunkissed cheeks and tanned legs that make everyone feel so much better after a long winter. However, all of us know by now that too much time in the sunshine is not good for our skin. But that summertime glow is nearly irresistible.

This year, consider slathering on the sunscreen and skipping the natural tan without giving up the glow. Here are a few ways you can achieve the summertime glow without putting your skin or health at risk. 


Glowing skin is not dry or scaly skin, so moisturizing habits are key. Choose a moisturizer that has sun protection built in and one that suits your specific skin type. If you have oily skin, for example, be sure your moisturizer helps to control the shine and not add to it. Finally, it is also important that you moisturize all over your body and not just your face. 

Eat and Drink Well

Staying hydrated will keep your skin looking dewy fresh and not dry, so choose to drink plenty of water throughout your day. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables will keep your complexion looking its best as well.

Use Highlighter and Other Makeup Tricks

Your makeup can give you a sunkissed glow that is safe and beautiful. Try using a highlighter and setting spray to give your skin the glowing boost it needs this season. There are also plenty of options for your entire body as well, allowing you to put on that sunscreen with confidence.
