Sun-Kissed Skin Essentials

If there is any one must-have vacation essential, it is sun-kissed skin. A glowy, bronzed complexion just makes everything look better. Yet vacation beauty is a whole different ballgame to normal life. Cover-ups that can feel great at home can suddenly seem thick and cakey in the heat or by the beach. In order to help you get it right, we hunted out the best lightweight, non-sticky formulas (that aren't full of nasty chemicals). Here are 10 barely-there tints and summer skin enhancers that will give you that beach goddess glow, without exposing your skin to the sun's damaging rays. Photo by Mickael Gresset
