5 WAYS TO FAKE THAT HOLIDAY GLOW

It’s summer and as soon as the sun strikes, we’re all dreaming of sunning ourselves somewhere tropical – cocktail in one hand, book in the other. But with busy work schedules, family plans and the growth of the ‘staycation’, it’s hard to find the time for that overseas getaway.

A week surrounded by sun, sea and sand can leave you feeling fully refreshed from head to toe. It’s a detox for our bodies – our beauty regime gets a bit of a break and we come back with that ‘holiday glow’ envied by everyone in the office.

But if you’re spending summer on home ground, and the great British weather is not on your side – fear not. Our friends at Ellipse Beauty UK have got you covered with five simple and easy hacks to fake that holiday glow…

FAKE BAKE IT

Probably the easiest way to fake that holiday glow is by investing in a decent face and body tan, ideally a gradual tanner as this will give you a more natural glow without the orange tinge or tiger streaks. It’s also recommended to purchase a separate face tanner, as these are tailor made for the delicate skin on your face so wont clog your pores. Perhaps opt for one with a little shimmer in for that added glow. A good product will also double up as a moisturiser.

5 WAYS TO FAKE THAT HOLIDAY GLOWDRINK UP

It’s no secret that drinking eight glasses of water a day is the simplest and cheapest way to keep  your skin hydrated and looking fresh, however managing to drink this much can prove difficult when you lead such a busy life. Try keeping a water bottle by your desk so you remember to top up each day and you will have a glowing complexion in no time.

FACIAL SPRAYS

Hydrating facial sprays are the perfect handbag accessory for busy women who need to top up their skin hydration levels on-the-go. A quick face and neck spritz instantly gives you a glowing complexion, eliminates that tight feeling and allows your skin to breathe a little.

BRONZE GODDESS

It’s time to invest in a really good cream bronzer. Using a cream texture rather than a powder will make your skin look so much more natural and won’t leave you looking cakey. Contour it over the darker areas of your face to give your complexion a deeper glow as well as shaping your facial contours.

ADD A DASH OF LEMON

It’s a bit of an old school trick, but if you’re a natural blonde, squeezing lemon juice all over your hair will naturally bleach it blonde, particularly when you’re out in the sunshine. It’s the perfect way to give your hair a blonde boost and allow it to look as if it’s caught some serious sun.
