Beauty: Winter Tanning Essentials

There's a little saying I like to go by, if you can't tone it, tan it! I won't lie, I'm quite partial to sporting a year round tan. There is something about having that sun-kissed glow that makes you feel and look a little leaner, and dare I say a tad sexier. The good news is that with all the amazing advancements in natural skin care products, you can get that glow without worrying about nasty toxins, sun damaged skin or looking like an Oompa Loompa. Here is my pick of the best natural tanning essentials to get your through this winter and beyond!

1. Loofau Scrub

For best results, always prep your skin first with a great body scrub. I love the Loofau scrub kit. It's great before a tan, or to fix up little accidents. Loofau is a 100% natural body scrub designed specifically to target the ingredients found in fake tan products and rid your skin of the chemicals. So it's perfect to remove old tan, or use to fix up blotchy bits.

2. Eco Tan’s Winter Skin

There's a reason this darling was a top pick at last year's Cosmo Beauty Awards. It is the bomb dot com! I always have a bottle of this in the bathroom cupboard. Eco Tan is a fantastic organic tan range. Winter Skin is great to pop on every night and gradually build your tan, or maintain one. This doubles as a great moisturizer to combat winter dryness. I love the colour that it develops and the fact that it's organic! 

3. Tan Organic’s Certified Organic tanning Oil

This guy is great for those with sensitive or dry skin. A silky dry oil, with a delicate citrus fragrance, that absorbs quickly and evenly to give a radiant tan that lasts for up to four days.Formulated with hydrating aloe vera and natural plant oils, skin is left nourished and supple with a sun-kissed natural glow.

Free from parabens and synthetic ingredients (including colours and fragrances), this product is gentle on sensitive skins. It is certified eco friendly, organic, ethical and is cruelty free.

4. Eco Tan Face Water

You should never put normal fake tan on your face. It will clog your bores and cause break outs, trust me on that one. So what should you do? Eco Tan Face Water to the rescue! Suitable even for oily and blemish-prone skin types, this is a hard-working formula that prevents ageing, and evens the skin tone. Vitamin C works to prevent the visible signs of ageing, and helps protect your skin from environmental aggressors.

5. Bronze by La Mav Tan Extender

BRONZE By La Mav Tan Extender helps to keep your skin hydrated, which ensures your tan lasts as long as possible. Made with the hydration A team including Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil and Avocado Oil to nourish the skin and help extend the life of your tan. This is combined with Magnesium and Vitamin E for smooth, supple, glowing skin.This tan extender can be used daily, and is best used following a shower.

6. Uni Organics - Ultimate Tan Self Tanning Cream

The Uni Organics Ultimate Tan Self Tanning Cream will provide you with a gorgeous sun-kissed colour without sun damage or harmful chemicals. DHA derived from Sugar Beets and Grapeseed extract to darken the skin without streaks or uneven colours. Aloe Vera and Sunflower Seed Oil moisturise, and Australian botanical Lemon Aspen provide an anti-ageing effect on the skin. This lightweight formulation ensures a flawless self tan and silky skin.

 7. GlowByBeca

Love the GlowByBeca range! An Australian made tanning range hell bend on raising the bar in sunless tanning. The range gives you a salon quality finish that you can achieve at home!

Has this ever happened to you? You're all pumped up about going to a gym class and need a workout buddy, you call your BFF (naturally) and she's not feeling it. Need a movie date to a new chick flick, speed dial your BFF and she's not there. If you're a mum, have you ever made plans with your fellow BMF (best mum friend) and she cancels on you because her baby is sick, or she's just having a bad day. If you have said yes to any of the above you generally have three options... go on your own, call in the B team, or completely cancel and eat a tub of ice cream because you feel rejected (or is that just me). Never again ladies! Your new BFF could be just a swipe away!

In an often isolating world, sharing our experiences as mothers on instagram has helped so many mums connect with other like minded souls going through the same highs and lows. I have loved watching fellow Brisbane super mum of five (yea mama!), Abbey Braithwaite, share her motherhood journey with the world. Her pictures are peppered with tiny fingers grabbing tasty morsels that she prepares and magical adventures with her little people. There is, of course, much more to this beautiful woman than you can share on instagram.
