Create  A (Customized) Faux Glow

Come summer, who doesn’t want a sun-kissed glow? “The new favorite way to go faux is St. Tropez new Express Bronzing Mist. It’s a foolproof, convenient way to get that perfect tan—with no trace of that unpleasant self-tanning odor,” says Pandora Amoratis, U.S. Style Director at the Daily Mail.

Here’s how it works: Apply with the 360 degree nozzle that allows you to target any and all body parts…it even goes upside down to reach hard places like your back.

Bonus: You can actually customize your perfect color. Leave it on for 1 hour for a light tan, 2 hours for a medium tan and 3 for a dark shade. After you rinse it off, wait 8 hours and your perfect, beautiful golden glow will be revealed!

Get Your Soles In Shape

So often we focus on the skin on our faces.  But summer is the season for flip flops and open-toe shoes, so getting your toes, heels and soles in tip-top shape is a must.

Check out these 3 new specialty foot treatments from the 7th Heaven collection, a great line of DIY face, hand and foot mask.

“They are effective, inexpensive  and loaded with natural ingredients containing pampering botanicals and luscious scents that leave feet feeling relaxed and refreshed. Check out their duo sachet foot soak and foot lotion,” suggests Amoratis.

And don’t forget to exfoliate your feet! “There’s a foot pumice, foot butter and a deep exfoliating moisturizing treatment. The pumice uses pressed peppermint to buff away that dry dead skin that nobody wants,” says the expert.

Need a quick fix? 7th Heaven Fresh Feet is a cream formula that dries to a silky powder infused with anti oxidant blueberry and anti-fungal, anti bacterial spearmint  and naturally cooling peppermint. It leaves your feet cool, tingly and and odor free. 

7th Heaven is cruelty free, vegan and a  member of BUAV, Leaping Bunny, and PETA and is available for $2.97 at WalMart.
