Summer Fridays at the beach are gone as we know it, only to be replaced by late nights at the office. With that returns the worries of losing your radiant summer glow that you worked so hard to earn. But, as always, we have your back! We researched - and tested - the best ways to keep your sun-kissed glow year round. Check out the products that made the cut!


Body Oil

Body oil is an excellent alternative to lotion as it helps to keep you looking bronzed no matter the season. It also contains moisturizing oils that leave your skin feeling super smooth and refreshed. Did we also mention they have a beachy-themed scent to remind you of those late summer nights and a shimmer that makes you look like you have a glow from within kind of vibe. #Winning

Liquid Highlighter

Liquid highlighters are a great tool to keep your skin glowing year-round.

Mix a drop or two into your foundation, or dab on your face and collarbone. They feel great and the shimmer highlight looks fantastic!
