Perfect skin always starts from the inside out. Hydration along with lots of colorful fruits and veggies is key for supple, radiant skin. After you’ve perfected your diet (ha-ha) and drank your 8 glasses of water a day, there are some key steps you can take on the outside to get your glow on.
First and foremost is always exfoliate. You need to prep your skin and slough off the old stuff to start fresh. Whether you’re pregnant or running after little ones, this Basq Citrus Sugar Body Polish is a great way to exfoliate and pamper your skin. The scent is refreshing and the scrub washes off clean without that greasy residue. Use once a week in the shower or bath. basqnyc.com
Next comes that beautiful bronze glow we all want. With skin cancer on the rise, it’s no longer cool to soak in those rays all day long. Not to mention that not all of us have the time to spend hours poolside or at the beach. The perfect way to fake it is to use a self-tanner. One of the best on the market, St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse will give you a perfect sun kissed glow without the streaks, and in just minutes! It has a green base so you won’t have to worry about looking orange either. www.sttropeztan.com
Another quick tanning alternative are these Tanning Wipes from Comodynes. They can be used on your face and body. As always, moisturizing is key to keeping your healthy glow. www.comodynes.net

A lightweight booster will detoxify and make skin look brighter. After cleansing your face apply the pure radiance day cream with SPF 15 to protect against harmful UVA rays.
