Effortless beauty takes work, I always say. It’s a smart woman who knows how to appear as though she’s just fresh from the waves yet looks quite pulled together. Her secret is in the products of preparation from self-tanner that keeps her glowing to mouse that lifts and tames. There’s no time like summertime for beauty done (kind of) natural.

Try a delicious option like this coconut concoction from Bath Haus to polish the body before self-tanning.
For those new to the world of self tanner, a towelette like the traditional Tan Towels we found at Bath Haus are a great way to start. Follow the simple directions to the letter and wake in the morning with a bronze glow that won’t cost you later.
