We’re well into July and it’s about time I give you the formula for an all-in-one body oil that will make your skin glow with a beautiful sun-kissed look.
I may be a bit late if you’re already on vacations (forgive me!) but it’s not too late to make your tan last.
I’ve used it last summer and while I was only gone for one week and doesn’t spend much time in the sun anyway, I got many compliments about my tan! The oil simply helped to make it last with a beautiful golden glow.
If you want to prepare your skin before your vacations, apply the oil approximately 3 weeks before sun exposure. I like to use it to give some colour to my very white legs too. The colour blends beautifully with your natural colour to make it look sun-kissed. No orange, I promise!
It can also be used as an after-sun care to help your skin to recover from UV aggression and I like to mix it with the aloe vera gel I keep in the fridge. 2 pumps of aloe vera in the palm of your hand + 1 pump of oil = 1 refreshing and soothing after-sun care. It’s great when you come back from the beach!
> Jojoba oil
Because it’s nourishing, balancing, anti-ageing and it suits sensitive or sensitized skins.
> HEMP SEED OIL
Because I use it everywhere. I love its soothing action and it’s the ideal oil for dehydrated skins.
> PEQUI OIL
It smells so good! Its exotic, fruit scent reminds me of the fruit of the loom. It has a soothing and protective action and it’s full of carotenoids and vitamin A. Hello healthy glow!
> CARROT MACERATE
For a healthy dose of
> calendula CO2 EXTRACT
For its soothing and repairing action.
> vitamin E
Vitamin E is unnegotiable if you want to help the skin to recover from sun exposure. My formula is poor in vitamin E, so I use it as an active here.
