Glowing skin. You often hear talk about how pregnant women have THAT glow about them. Or you see a woman SO happy you can see it on her face. It’s the look that everyone from models to celebrities to regular ole Betties like us are trying to recreate everyday. We’ve outline 5 steps that you can include on a day-to-day (or somewhat day-to-day – let’s be real here) basis to help you achieve a healthy glowing complexion minus the hormones and inexplicable happiness.
Step 1: Exfoliate
Exfoliating is important for just your basic healthy skin routine, but is essential for glowing results. Get rid of that dull top layer and reveal younger cells underneath. Try a gentle glycolic acid peel like this one from Suki Skincare instead of a mechanical exfoliator to gentle lift away dulling surface cells.
Step 2: Use some Vitamin C
C, C, C! Vitamin C is a fantastic antioxidant, which means not only can it help with anti-aging but it can help reverse the signs of sun damage and brown spots that can hinder a glowy complexion. Try a Vitamin C serum like this one from Pure and True to fade pesky marks and overall brighten your skin.
Step 3: Use an illuminating powder
Highlighters and illuminators are so underrated. While we love a good cream highlighter, try mixing a powder illuminator like this one from Lily Lolo with your foundation or BB cream to impart a subtle glow all over.
Step 4: Use an oil hydrator
As much as we love Infuse from Pure and True, we love a good oil to moisturize with. Oils penetrate deeper into the skin and leave you looking and feeling more hydrated throughout the day. Hydrated skin looks younger, fresher, and more radiant. Try RMS Beauty Oil for a non-greasy finish that will hydrate and soothe skin.
Step 5: Rescue your skin
Your skin is constantly being attacked by pollutants, UV rays, stress, and harsh weather. Use a deeply hydrating mask once a week like this one by Orgaid to replenish moisture and elasticity. Start your Mondays off right and wake up with brighter, rejuvenated skin.
