Our beach body plan has little to do with getthing that perfect 6 pack, and more to do with treating yourself to a little summer pampering. We all love hitting the beach, but its important to have the proper summer essentials to make the most of your sunny day. I’ve compiled a list of 8 products that will get you feeling your best this summer.
A fake tan can instantly bring out muscle definition you don’t actually have. No need to run to a fancy, over-prized salon though in order to achieve that perfect spray-tan. The new tarte Glow with the Faux Foaming Self-Tanner with Mitt is a foaming tanning mousse that immediately creates a dark bronze glow that develops into an ultra-deep tan in 2 hours. This self-tanner was inspired by the brand’s iconic self-tanners and body bronzers to help deliver an even, no muss, no fuss natural glow. If placed in the correct spots, you can even fake the appearance of a more toned body. Think of it as body contouring. Apply an extra coat to areas you want to disguise, and watch as the shade deepens overtime.
