As the sun graces us with its warmth, it's time to let those legs out! Say goodbye to dry, crackly skin and hello to radiant skin. Embracing smooth, bronzed, and radiant skin has never felt more inviting. Shedding the layers of winter, we're now donning sun dresses and tank tops, showing off beautifully bronzed skin. Whether you're heading to a summer party, enjoying sundowners with the girls, or simply hitting the beach, this season is all about embracing that radiant glow.

Skip the expense of tanning sessions or risky prolonged sun exposure and discover our tried-and-true hacks and recommended products that will give you the ultimate summer radiance. And as a bonus, we've included some favorites from our Glamour Beauty Awards.


Exfoliating your body at least once a week is so important, not just for smooth skin but overall health of your skin. Removing dead skin and dirt will get you closer to radiant, smooth skin. It’s best to do this right before you shave as it’ll become easier to remove the hairs. This one from Tree Hut smells like summer and is perfect for removing dead skin, without being too abrasive against the skin.

Recently, I’ve noticed a huge difference in the way that my skin feels and looks after using shaving oil. It makes shaving super less painful, less fuss in the shower and leaves my skin feeling oh so smooth. Gone are the days of feeling like a prickly cactus after shaving because , with this new method, I guarantee that you’ll be feeling silky smooth!

I’ve cracked the code for curing my dry, cracked skin. It’s been an absolute game-changer in my post-shower routine. I’ve started adding a few drops of body oil to my body lotion and applying this at least every other day. My skin has started to look brighter and feels a lot more smoother. In the mornings, I add a few bronzing drops to my body lotion when my skin is looking slightly pale.

We love five-minute life-saving hacks! For the ladies who want that extra glow this summer, add baby or body oil to a spray bottle. Add your favorite shimmery bronzer or highlighting powder to the oil. Give it a shake and spray over your legs, collarbones, shoulders and arms. You can pop this in your beach bag or purse and spray a little just before heading out to dinner or meeting with the girls for sundowners. Who doesn’t love to radiate like a shimmery goddess when the sun hits the skin?
