Guys don’t have a need for bronzers or self-tanners, right? Wrong! Men need a little beach-bronzing action too. It’s the trick to showing off freshly sculpted muscles, to add a little extra summer glow, and of course, for protection from harmful sunrays. Summer is finally here, and what better way is there to celebrate than to relax on the beach, enjoy a rooftop party, or simply to take a morning jog around the neighborhood, while showing off sun-kissed skin. Honestly, it’s what we’ve all been waiting for.
Let’s begin with the basics. Men, no matter what, should always use sunscreen whether you plan to spend the entire day outdoors, or if you’re just making a trip to the grocery store. Try Coola’s Sport Continuous Spray SPF 30. It’s an easy spray-on application that doesn’t require any extra maintenance and also comes in a variety of fragrances. Not to mention that the spray hydrates skin and uses a natural sunscreen for nourishment. Use Kate Somerville’s Somerville360 Maximizer Tan Enhancing Moisturizer for an extra push in accelerating your sun-kissed hue. However, if you would like a little more color in your daily stride, James Read Gradual Day Tan will do the trick. A treatment with a touch of self-tan to offer as an alternative to any tanning bed, it also serves as an anti-aging agent. If you would like a combination of being outdoors, but don’t want to seem too pale as the summer is still young, try Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow Instant Matte Waterproof Body Perfector. It clears up any color imperfections by adding a nice glow, but also allows for you to naturally bronze. Regardless of the route you decide to take, you’ll definitely be prepared for a day at the beach or a jog around the park.
