Let's face it - winter is over !! And frankly, I'm like soooo over it. I'm READY to look like I just rolled off the beach. The problem is, my Mexico vacay isn't until July and I'm rocking out the pasty white girl look.
I've also got an upcoming work conference in Vegas next month. While my girlfriends are all talking about drinks by the pool, I'm secretly having a panic attack.
So ladies, let's "fake it, til we make it".
Here are my top 5 tips to get you looking like Mexico is your second home!
1. SELF TANNER
Personally I've tried them all and here's my favorite. I love the smell and I love that it's toxin free!
Tip: Exfoliate really well before you apply!
2. BEACH HAIR
Now, I'm not talking the Friends episode where Monica gets overcome by humidity! I mean sexy,beach hair!! Stop by your local hair stylist and add in some blonde highlights! (side note ... I recommend you leave this to the professionals! I've had some really bad self-induced dye jobs!!)
I personally LOVE sunglasses! The bigger the better! I picked up this pair at Target for under $20!
Although it should come with a disclaimer , not all bronzers are created equally! Get one without to much shimmer ( it needs a little to help the light bounce around !) apply with a large fluffy brush. Start with a little! You can always add more!
5 . WATER
Stay hydrated! Coconut water is perfect! It hydrates all the cells in your body and it's the perfect way to help you look and feel refreshed.
These are just a few of my tips. Visualize the sand between your toes and hum your favorite Jimmy Buffet song. Before you know it, you will be saying pass the sunscreen!
