If you’re like us, you like to add a little more glow to your beauty routine during the summer months. While we all love basking in the sun, UV exposure can seriously damage our skin. That’s where bronzer comes into play! However, there’s a big difference between winter bronzers and summer bronzers. As a rule, in the colder months, it’s best to use a cream or liquid bronzer on your face because your skin may be more prone to dryness. Whereas in hot months, a powder or gel bronzer has more staying power and is much less greasy. Here is our latest round up of the best bronzers for summer 2018!
