It’s winter again – which means for those not graced with glowing Latin skin like Sofia Vergara, it’s time to break out the self-tanner. And before any great tan, it’s essential to exfoliate skin to get rid of any dead skin that would leave the color uneven. That’s what we love about the new Svelta Luxe Coffee & Raw Sugar Body Scrub, to be used before Svelta Self-Tanner.
The Body Scrub includes key ingredients like almond oil, cardamom seed oil, coffee, olive oil, and organic raw sugar – which nourish skin and exfoliate it at the same time. Plus, it sort of smells like espresso mixed with gingerbread.
Follow up with the Skin-Perfecting Self Tanner, which is filled with natural products you might find in your backyard, like aloe vera, camu-camu (a fruit filled with anti-oxidants), green tea leaf extract, guarana (contains caffeine to boost circulation), poppy seed extract (smooth skin), sacred lotus (tones and hydrates), and sweet almond oil. For best results, use a hand mitt (there’s one provided) and apply with broad, vertical motions.
