Thank God the winter is almost over and it’s time to start planning for the best time of the year again – SUMMER! Since summer means reintroducing yourself to the sun, you’ll want to show off soft touchable skin. The first step in prepping yourself to have the perfect summer body is to exfoliate and rid yourself of all the effects of the dry winter season.
Once your skin is touchably smooth, treat it with extra love and protection from harmful rays. Why feel weighed down by your sunscreen, when you can opt for lightweight formulas that provide moisture and nourishment without the oily touch? The products below will get your skin buffed and protected all spring and summer long.
