how to get a healthy summer glow

 

Summer is within reach but it isn’t very convincing with this bipolar weather.  We had a terrible icy snow storm in mid-April, so who’s to say that summer is coming soon.  I think I can speak for everyone that we are just over it with winter.  Dearest mother nature, please let us have our spring and summer because we are ready to give up the puffer jackets and boots to slip into lightweight clothing and bask ourselves in the sun.  The bright fiery star is out longer and we are dying to stay out past sunset and enjoy a drink, or two in the patio.

Since it’s getting warmer now, I am super excited to amp up my healthy summer glow that Europeans can’t live without.  So here’s a little Parisian secret to maintaining a luminous complexion using 3 essential skincare products from Darphin:

 

1. Lumiere Essentielle Instant Purifying and Illuminating Mask

Apply the mask combo in 2-steps, each for 5 minutes. Start with the white purifying mask to cleanse the skin and draw out impurities; then apply the illuminating orange mask.  This will hydrate, plump and smooth fine lines.  Use this mask 2-3 times a week.

2. Revitalizing Oil 

For lustrous shine, massage the oil to your face, body, and hair after the shower and throughout the day.

3. Tangerine Aromatic Care

Add a few drops to your moisturizer and massage away into your face.  This formula contains tangerine, grapefruit, sweet orange, and lemon oils to brighten and give your face a radiant and gorgeous complexion.

 

 

 

 

Optional: Light makeup

If you must, apply light makeup.  This skincare remedy should save you time and from wasting other products to create the summer glow you’re looking for.  So a coral colour lippie and natural eye makeup will do for a weekend at the beach look.
