For This Spring, It's Never Too Soon To Fake A Glow

March 19, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby

You remember spring, right? The sun shines hotter, the days get longer, hemlines grow higher, and your legs…stays pale. But don't worry–if you don't have the tan to match the season yet, you can still feel good about sloughing your shell and showing a little skin. Tanning is of course one option, but I prefer a subtler, healthier approach.

What: Creams and powders to make you glisten and glow. 

Why: Dove's Energy Glow lotion ($7.99) declares itself a self-tanner but I don't think there's any actual staining going on here–it's more like glossing or shining. Use the body lotion on your arms, legs, back, and anywhere else you want to create the impression of sun-kissed skin. I used it every day this winter, and while it's no substitute for a day at the beach, my noticeably more luminous skin did once inspire a friend to ask me how I managed to stay tan in December. So clearly this product works miracles! The body lotion comes in two different tones to match your skin, as does the facial moisturizer ($7.99).

shimmer

For my face, though, I actually prefer a shimmery powder, like Laura Mercier's Shimmer Bloc ($38). Sweep a bit of any color–or a combination of all–across your nose and cheeks for that fresh-from-the-picnic look, or brush more liberally on forehead and chin as well to create an all-over facial glow. The bloc comes in two "mosaics," pink-ish and brown-ish, so you can choose your look. Personally, I like the darker colors for creating a tanned look, but the pinky palette makes a great blush, in addition to giving you that certain shimmer.
