Three, two, one glow!


This season, it’s all about easy looks to get out there and enjoy everything the summer has to offer. Whether home or away this summer, you’ll want to have all the essentials that will keep you looking gorgeous all season long. 

A golden glow is key – even if the British weather lets us down.  From fake tan to the real thing, feel bronzed and beautiful with Boots’ extensive range of sun products.

“Hydration is the key to maintaining a healthy glow,” explains Boots Suncare Expert Clare O’Connor. “To optimise your tan – whether real or not – look for a PH neutral moisturiser as this is the ideal base for a tan.”

Looking to fake it? The No7 Perfectly Bronzed Quick Dry Tinted Mousse glides on effortlessly and delivers an instant glow within ten minutes. Then there’s Kate Moss’ summer beauty must-have – the new sweet almond oil-infused St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion that glides onto wet skin in the shower, leaving you with a golden glow eight hours later.
From Boots Soltan Aftersun Lotion with Tan Prolonger to Essentials Body Lotion with Aloe Vera, glow with the flow this summer.
Glowing forward…
No7 Advisor Samantha Greaves gives three tips for getting that faux summer glow:
1. Take a cool shower. “Stick to cool showers and use a moisturising body wash to really lock-in your colour. Try No7 Blissful Body Wash.”

2. Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate. “It's important to give your body a weekly exfoliation to help remove dull, parched surface cells and prepare the skin for the self-tanning to come. Try Boots Botanics Loofah Bath Brush.”

3. Try Aloe Vera. “Fake tan will stick to oil based products which causes it to appear streaky, so try Boots Essentials Body Lotion with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.”

Whether keeping your skin radiant or hair lush, Boots is your destination for summer essentials. Get out there and glow!
