Coming out of winter is always a difficult transitional time. Your skin and hair are usually dull (and the latter likely attracting electrical current from pretty much every surface), especially if you weren't one of the lucky ones who got to jetset out of the polar vortex for a few days for a dose of vitamin D. But, even if you were stuck at home shoveling that awful white stuff every other day, you can still go out into the world looking like a glowy, vivacious bronze goddess from head to toe—even if you never left home.
Give your locks a bit of life after such a long winter with the Schwarzkopf BlondMe Shine Enhancing Spray Conditioner. The gold-flecked spritz will add a little lustre to your 'do and will bring out those highlights while protecting them with UV filters. Just spritz post-style and prepare to accept the compliments of your shiny tresses all day long. $17, schwarzkopf-professional.ca
Each spring we look forward to the launch of Guerlain's seasonal Terracotta collection. This season we're coveting the new Joli Teint Beautifying Foundation—a bronzed foundation that gives you that sun-kissed glow, but with an SPF od 20 so that you can enjoy the sun's rays without worrying about the burn. $58, available at Guerlain counters
What better way to make yourself feel like a bronze goddess than to wear a scent aptly titled Bronze Goddess? Estee Lauder's limited edition scent is back for another season, fusing notes of amber, coconut milk, vanilla and juicy citrusy scents for a fragrance that embodies that "summer in a bottle" feel and will likely become a go-to for those not-so-sunny days. Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraé®che Skinscent, $68, esteelauder.ca
Bioderma launches their Photoderm Moisturizing Tanning Spray that can be used on the face and body.

You've all heard how moisturized skin equals happy glowing skin, and there's a reason for that. Building upon this concept, Jergens now has BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream, which corrects colour, smooths and firms imperfections, illuminates skin, all while keeping it hydrated and quenched. Available for both light-medium and medium-dark skintones, BB Body gives you the "glow" without altering your existing shade. $12.99, available at mass and drug retailers
