Hold on to your summer glow just a little longer using American-made bath and beauty products. Keep your skin moisturized and exfoliate regularly for a healthy look in any shade.
Try my made in USA favorites for moisturizing and exfoliation. Both are offered by trusted brands for a bargain price.
1. Dove Cream Oil moisturizer pairs nourishing oil with hydrating cream for unparallelled results in smooth skin.
2. Softsoap Body Butter Scrub with Coconut and Jojoba Butter. This is a gentle body scrub that is perfect for daily or near daily use to keep dry skin from building up. It softens, smooths, and cleanses all in one step.
Don't forget to grab a good loofah or body mitt. Your skin will thank you for the luxe treatment. Check your labels and tags for a quality made in USA loofah.
Not as tan as you want to be? Bronzer can fake the sun kissed glow. Use a large powder brush and apply the bronzer along your cheek bones, dust across your forehead, nose and chin lightly to keep it natural looking. The made in USA Josie Maran bronzer pictured is a two-in-one product. The formula also helps diminish the appearance of sun damage and age spots.
Sunless tanning lotions are available year round to extend or build a tan. Get all the tips for a great application of a self tanner here, where we shared two of our favorite made in USA tanners and the steps to use them earlier this year.

My dad always taught us that we needed to buy American products as much as possible, whenever possible. He used to say, more than 40 years ago, that our country and our citizens should be a priority where spending our dollars was concerned. He was vehemently against buying a Japanese car! And, poor Daddy, he would spend hours researching Consumer Report to find electronics, appliances, and other items before buying them. He was extremely disappointed that he couldn't find a VCR or microwave that was actually assembled and produced in the U.S.A. As time went by, and I grew older, I began to understand why it meant so much to him. And, I began to see the effect buying cheap, imported goods has had on this country. We have practically traded away our valuable 'equity' since big companies found it easier and more profitable to take our once robust manufacturing industry to overseas labor forces. The trade deficit will never be reduced until America can regain its power and global respect. We must protect America and have pride and confidence in her if we are to recapture the industrial prowess she was known for. We cannot continue to send dollars overseas, because by doing this, we lose jobs, and global economic power.
Gonna look into getting the coconut scrub
