Who said a tan is unhealthy? I am not suggesting you spend your vacation on a raft in the Gulf of Mexico tanning BUT do not underestimate the benefit of my first of five simple tips to put you well on your way to gorgeous this summer.
1. Self Sunless Tan
- It will make you eyes appear whiter as well as your teeth. The deepened color on your face will naturally create the illusion.
- Everyone will think you look healthier.
- Makes you appear thinner and will even diminish the unsightly appearance of cellulite.
I have a couple of favorite Self Tanners in my beach bag. The first is Bella Bronze Sunless tanning Lotion . The Mediterranean blend of Chamomile, Goats Milk, Olive Oil and Shea butter will make you skin feel fabulous while revealing a flawless, deep golden tan…Love it! and no streaking allowed.
SeneSun wash on tanner offers a fail safe application process by applying it with a body poof in the shower and rinsing it off. Step out, towel dry off to discover a light brown bronze tone that will become more intense with a second and third application over the next few days2.
2. Teeth Whitening
- The added confidence alone is well worth the effort.
- Most teeth have a yellow or gray tint which intensifies with various foods you eat and is never attractive..
- Whiter teeth will naturally make you appear younger and the added benefit will make you smile more often.
Unless you plan on having your teeth professionally whitened, the winner is Crest White Strips…hands down. Crest White strips are the best over the counter, moderately priced teeth whitening system.
3. White Eyeliner Pencil/Shadow
- A white liner pencil/shadow on the inner bottom lid will give make your eyes appear whiter, brighter and larger.
- Use your white liner on the inner corner of your eye for highlighting your way to a more youthful, wide awake appearance.
- My favorite is a gel white eyeliner pencil with the ease of a retractor.
4. Eye Whitening Drops
- Moist eyes appear to look well rested and bright
- Clearer eyes, whiter eyes are more appealing.
The best eye whitening moisture drops are Refresh Redness Relief by Allergan.
5. Contact Lenses â€“ Why?
I am not recommending that you run out and purchase contact lenses if you do not require your vision corrected, you may want to consider these lenses for pure cosmetic enhancement. Compliments galore will come your way!
- Allure/Equinox contact lenses by Marietta vision, come complete with what I refer to as semi permanent Iris Eyeliner on the lens. This circle appears to look like eyeliner will enhance the color of your iris and make the whites of your eye appear much whiter and brighter. The deep black small lines around the contact lens are called a Limbal ring.
Begin with a safe and healthy self tan followed by a few simple tips that will springboard you on your way to fabulous this summer.
