"The modern Hawaiian Tropic woman still loves to spend time in the sun, but also understands the importance of sun care in helping to keep her skin healthy," said Danielle Duncan, brand manager of Hawaiian Tropic. "We're looking for a new face of the brand who captures that sensibility, and shares the Hawaiian Tropic philosophy that broad-spectrum sun protection can be as luxurious and pampering as any other beauty product."
