3 Products Guaranteed To Give You Glowing Skin In The Sun

It’s currently a scorcher – yes, the early to mid-twenties in Ireland is a heatwave in our eyes – but what if you haven’t time to devote to sun worshipping? It shouldn’t mean you should be without that sun-kissed glow synonymous with the glorious summer months. And nor should you have to go on a beach holiday to get your limbs gleaming; carefully chosen products can and will do all the hard work for you (and give you glowing skin). And because we’re firm believers in faking it till you make it, we’ve chosen three that will make your skin look dewy and glorious without ever having to set foot in the sun. Use these?as standalone products or as extra buffers to make your tan last longer.

Vichy Ideal Body 3 Gold Oil, €25

Just the right amount of shimmer, and fab softening ingredients to get skin glowing. It also smells gorgeous and is flattering on even the palest Celtic skin tones.

MAC Lustre Drops, €23

If you’re looking for radiance in a bottle, this is as close as you’re going to get. ?This is a lightweight, sheer, natural-looking highlight with a luminous, shimmering finish. Use these anywhere you want an added glow; to highlight cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, or highbrow area. Simply tap the bottle and use your fingers to blend. ?Or mix them with foundation or moisturiser to create a luminous finish and added shine on shoulders and d?collet?.?The drops are water-resistant, so they’re perfect for summer holidays or the festival season.

Charlotte Tillbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow Compact, €60

If you’re not partial to a heavy contoured look,?Charlotte Tillbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow compact includes a bronzer and highlighter in one that creates the appearance of soft and natural luminosity either dusted over foundation or when applied to bare skin. The bronzer is a blend of pearl and pigment to help mimic sun-kissed skin and the highlighter has a golden base to universally flatter any skin tone.
