Hitting the beach this weekend? Don't leave home without these.
Memorial Day is (finally!) here, and fun in the sun is on your agenda this weekend, there are two things you absolutely, positively can’t leave home without: SPF and a natural-looking faux tan. Fortunately, there’s a new all-natural and organic line that has both of these holiday weekend musts for you—and it’s called Miami Gorgeous!
Founded by two health-conscious beauty buffs, Miami Gorgeous offers products that really work—without potentially harmful chemicals like parabens and sulfates (and they happen to be gluten-free, too). First up is the LaPlaya Glow Self Tanning Mousse, which glides on like a dream. It’s tinted so you can see exactly where you’re applying it, and the unscented foam is also packed with good-for-your-skin argan, coconut and jojoba oils; vitamins A, C and D; and elderflower extract. I tried it a few nights ago before bed and loved the color I woke up to the next morning (with no tell-tale smell).
Once you get your tan on, you still need to protect your skin from the sun—and that’s where the LaPlaya Zinc Sun Stick SPF 30 comes in. This 100% physical zinc-based stick has already taken up residence in my beach bag because it’s perfect for touch-ups throughout the day (and my son doesn’t give me a hard time when it’s time to apply). In addition to UVA and UVB protection, you also get loads of hydration thanks to organic avocado and coconut oils. Trust me, you’ll want to have one on hand for spots like the nose, lips and ears that somehow always manage to burn.
Are you ready for Memorial Day weekend and the summer ahead? With this dynamic duo from Miami Gorgeous, at least your skin is!
