How to maintain your summer tan
If the end of summer has you dreading the thought of losing your glow, we’ve got the clean beauty ticket to keep you looking like you just stepped off a beach in Tahiti year-round. BBE’s lineup of clean self tanners are dye-free, vegan, and plant-based. Not to mention, they are all you need to preserve your luscious tan, no matter what the season. From the OG, sunshine in a bottle, lotion formula to the new easy to use mousse – this clean beauty must-have will have you bronze overnight (not exaggerating). If you’re not in the mood to do a full body self-tan, don’t sweat it. BBE created a facial self tanner that was specifically designed to blend in seamlessly, and to dry quickly. On top of that, it is packed with nourishing shea butter and green tea extract, which all help to minimize wrinkles, and to keep skin supple and hydrated. Suffice it to say, this product is so loaded with must-have ingredients, that the self-tan part is just a plus!
How to brighten your skin
We could all use a little extra brightness in our lives, and our complexions are no exception. Every babe wants an even and radiant skin tone even JLo would envy – and we get it! But if you thought you needed harsh chemicals or toxic ingredients to achieve that glow, think again. BBE’s Vitamin C products are all you need to even out that complexion, get rid of dark spots, tighten your pores, and to get your skin looking brighter of course. First off, you’ll want to follow your cleansing routine by spritzing on a bit of the Vitamin C toner. This toner is packed with powerful antioxidants like white tea and apple fruit cell culture, yet will never sting the skin. What’s more, it can also reduce redness and provide your face with the protection it needs against free radicals. And if you really want to go the extra mile in the Vitamin C department, we recommend adding in BBE’s HyperActive Anti-Aging Vitamin C serum. It packs all the punch of a serious Vitamin C product in a clean formula that is lightweight. We love using this under makeup for an added glow, or all on its own for a naturally healthy looking complexion – no foundation or highlighter needed!
How to grow your hair longer, stronger, and healthier

Aloe vera is *the* most underrated clean beauty product that can do so much more than relieve that sunburn. This powerful plant is highly moisturizing, and can boost your skin’s elasticity. But what we love it for most, is for creating the ultimate at-home hair mask. BBE’s aloe gel is 98% organic, and will have your hair feeling luscious and smooth. We recommend applying a generous amount to your hair on a night where you plan on washing your locks the next morning. Sleep your way to healthier hair, and simply rinse out in the morning! With continued use, you’ll have hydrated and nourished hair that can grow as long as you wish Rapunzel. You’re welcome.
