3 Body-Flattering Essentials for
Silky, Sexy Glowy Skin
No matter your age, what shade your complexion, whether you tend to tan or burn, or even your feelings about bathing suits, everybody’s skin looks better in summer. A sun-warmed gleam is something we look forward to all year—and these three brilliant potions amplify a summer glow like nothing else (they also have the ability to create a summery glow in the dead of winter). They can also blur imperfections, give you back-from-the-beach-esque color, and even make you smell summery.
The Perfect (Self-) Tan
A tan, whether it’s subtle or week-in-the-Maldives full-on, has the benefit of making almost anyone look their most radiant, svelte, and healthy.
Invisi Foaming Tan Water
This clear tanning water is an absolute dream to apply. It foams into a thick, hydrating mousse that sinks right into skin when applied with the Vita Liberata Tanning Mitt—and the clear color means there’s absolutely no residue or transfer to clothing or sheets. The quick-dry formula is infused with organic botanicals to moisturize skin while it works.
This super soft mitt makes applying flawless self-tanner easier than any other mitt we’ve tried. Dispense tanner onto the mitt and smooth over skin in circular motions. It protects your hands from stains, and it also makes any application smoother and more natural-looking (it works especially well with Vita Liberata’s mousses).
In summer, a glow-boosting body treatment should instantly enhance your natural burnish so that you feel even less compelled to bask in the sun; the risk of skin cancer is very real, as are the dark spots and loss of collagen that spending time in the sun can cause. In colder months, these formulas instantly wake up dull or tired skin (we love a bronzy arm poking out of a creamy cashmere sweater). They’re all clean, nontoxic, and filled with nourishing plant extracts and oils that leave skin not just unstoppably gleamy but also silky, revived, and summertime fresh, no matter what the season.
