Destination: Beach Beauty

Summer is (almost) here!

We just returned from a fabulous vacay to our favorite destination- OBX.
This year, we stayed a bit south of Nags Head and headed for Salvo. It was N.I.C.E.! No crowds, perfect weather and beachfront living.

My only prep for the beach was to get a spray tan. Prior to this experience, I had only had one spray tan. It was good, but not great. I headed to Tracy's Salon on Main this time and was very impressed with the results. To help extend the color, I use Designer Skin's For Keeps. It's rich and smells yummy. You can find on or purchase from a local supplier. In between spray tans, I use Bare Minerals Faux Tan Body. It's colored so application is quick and easy! I have never had issues with streaks or spots from this product! (also purchased from Tracys) The salon just started carrying St. Tropez products and I'm anxious to give the brand a try as I've read nothing but great things! Make sure to exfoliate and shave one day prior to applying self tanner or visiting a spray tan booth.

Of course, with a fake or natural tan, I have to "up" my beauty game. I use Benefit Cosmetics Hoola as a bronzer. To help eyeshadow last longer in the heat, try an eyeshadow primer like Urban Decay's Original primer. There are several other options from Urban Decay like shimmer and anti-aging. Lastly, I added a new color to my lipstick collection and pumped up my eyelashes with Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.

My latest obsession- Epsom Salt. Talk about relaxation, smooth skin and overall improved health! This inexpensive product packs a punch. The heat and humidity can cause swelling and epsom salt takes it away almost instantly. Just bathe in two cups of epsom salt. I also add a doterra oil of my choice to the mixture, like Cypress. Cypress helps ease muscle pains.
