A Sun-kissed Glow in Just a Couple Drops

We’ve all heard the saying “a healthy glow.”  Most of the time we mean a little tan, and the truth is…a tan is actually not that healthy. So, how do we fake it easily without having to make it a chore? Enter glow drops.

Glow drops are an easy way to achieve a natural sun-kissed glow. Just put a bit of your moisturizer in your palm, add a few drops to your moisturizer and mix it in. Then, apply your moisturizer as usual. Within a couple of days, you’ll notice a nice tan glow to your skin.

We have two popular ones at the store. Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster and Vita Liberata Self-Tanning Anti-Aging Serum. Both of these products offer similar results. The Vita Liberata product has the added benefit of being an anti-aging product as well. Matrixyl 3000 and Organic Rosehip along with HYH20 technology help to soften fine lines. Not a bad addition to your morning routine!


  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.

Located in historic Old Town Alexandria, for more than 17 years Bellacara has been Northern Virginia's preeminent boutique for high end cosmetic, skincare and haircare products. At Bellacara you will find premiere beauty products that have been carefully edited by the store’s owner, Angela Sitilides, who personally tests all the products sold in store.
