This will make your tan look ten times better

At this time of year, a shimmering body lotion will make your darker skin tone look gorgeous.

At this time of year, most of us have spent some time in the sunshine. Pretty much everyone has a bit of a tan going on even if it's just in the form of a few extra freckles. It's generally the time of year that everybody is at their darkest. I have pretty much stopped wearing fake tan altogether in favour of bringing up my natural skintone with a shimmering body lotion.

When you have a tan, applying body lotion will instantly make it appear darker. Dry skin on the surface of your skin will give you a whitish looking finish. Once you apply a hydrating lotion, that dry skin is nourished and disappears. But what's even better than just applying body lotion is applying a shimmering body lotion.

A little shimmer just makes your skin look better. It gives it a golden glow and makes it look healthier and sexier. Shimmer can slim down your limbs by catching the light and creating a sheen. In general, body shimmer is a great addition to any little black (or any colour) evening dress.
