    Another great way of improving your mood is to flaunt a bold lipstick. My favourite? Urban Decay’s Vice Sheer Lipstick in Broadcast.

    This sheer lipstick not only has a gorgeous peach hue, but it features a Pigment Infusion System™ which gives it a unique creamy texture and rich colour payoff. Plus, it is formulated with Aloe vera, jojoba, avocado and babassu oils to moisturise and comfort your lips. What’s not to feel good about?

    St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Lotion

    It’s no secret that we all feel better in the summer when the sun is shining and we’ve got a gorgeous tan. While I can’t do anything about the sun part, I can help you achieve a sun-kissed glow. Or, rather, the St. Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Lotion can!

    This lightweight lotion allows you to gradually build your tan, delivery an all-over, healthy-looking, golden colour. Better yet, it is formulated with the brand’s mood-boosting fragrance (Yes! It doesn’t have that off-putting self-tan smell), so you can look good and feel good too.

    Insider Tip: Massage into clean, dry skin using upward circular motions every day to slowly increase your tan. I’d also recommend exfoliating regularly to maintain it.
