I love having a warm, overall glow across my body. With my busy schedule, there isn’t always time to fit in spray tans, self-tanning or time to lay out on the beach and get some sun. One of my favorite beauty products for helping me achieve this sun-kissed look is body bronzer. Not to be confused with self-tanner, body bronzer gives off the same warm effect and radiant finish with less commitment. Learn more about why I love it below!
BODY BRONZING BENEFITS
Similar to any bronzer that you would apply onto your face, body bronzer sculpts the areas to which it is applied. It helps slim and contours everything from your legs to your arms and even midriff after one application, plus a glossy finish. You also don’t have to worry about any streaks or discoloration, as body bronzers are meant to enhance your overall complexion.
BODY BRONZER VS. SELF-TANNER
If you’re wondering what the differences are between body bronzers and self-tanners, they mainly lie in the formulas. You don’t have to wait for a body bronzer to develop any color over time, and it can easily be washed off in the shower. Self-tanner is a little bit more of a commitment as it won’t come off right away if you’re not entirely in love with the shade and finish.
HOW TO APPLY
After you’ve taken a shower, apply your bronzer on your legs, arms, chest, and décolletage. You’ll begin to feel it moisturizing your body, but it won’t leave you with that greasy and uncomfortable feeling. After a few minutes pat the areas with a tissue to ensure that they’re dry, and this way you won’t ruin any of your clothes once you put them on.
