There’s no use fighting it—summer is slowly coming to an end. You may have a few last beach trips planned or a few more weeks at the pool, but soon enough the kids will head back to school, the days will get shorter, and the temps will get cooler. And while we welcome fall every year, there are a few things about summer we wish would last year-round—like beautiful sun-kissed skin.
But the end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of your youthful tan. In fact, this transition in season is the perfect time to invest in the kind of tan that even your dermatologist would approve of! The truth is that you can score a convincing summer glow (without the harmful UVs) at any time of year. We talked to the skin experts over at Sanctuary Spa to learn what their favorite products and services are for making your summer glow last a little longer.
1. St. Tropez Dry Luxe Oil. Quick-drying and non-greasy, St. Tropez has created sun-kissed magic in a bottle with this product! You’ll look naturally golden, rather than orange or brown, and you’ll fool everyone into thinking you just got back from vacation! It’s hydrating, like a moisturizer, and you can apply it yourself to build to the color you want. Plus, it’s made with high-quality ingredients to prevent clogged pores and breakouts.
2. St. Tropez Skin Illumination. You know a product is good when it’s used on models at high-profile events like London Fashion Week. St. Tropez’s Skin Illumination comes out as a white cream that easily absorbs into skin, leaving you with a warm “airbrushed” finish. It’s great for highlighting areas like cheekbones and collarbones. Bonus: it’s small enough to travel with!
3. Kai Body Polish. Any spray tan pro will tell you the key to a smooth finish and a longer tan is proper exfoliation. Kai’s body polish is our favorite skin exfoliate for removing dead, dry skin cells so your tan can be applied to the healthiest (and softest!) skin possible.
4. Professional Spray Tan with St. Tropez. If you’re not into the DIY-tan, or you want that expert touch to ensure you get all those hard-to-reach areas, schedule a spray tan at the Bay Club! Our trained professionals can customize your St. Tropez spray tan to compliment your skin tone and desired darkness.
