So pick your faves to help you achieve the perfect summer look: part golden earth goddess, part mermaid, and all non-toxic and clean.

You can't get that boho beach goddess look without a glowing tan. But tanning beds and UV exposure can increase your risk of skin cancer, making sunless tanners the obvious best choice for a healthy tan.
Before you apply self tanner, exfoliate your skin with Just the Goods vegan sugar body scrub. This organic sugar scrub features grapeseed oil, safflower oil, and avocado oil to moisturize while it exfoliates.
