Happy Friday everyone!
I hope you all had a lovely week and are looking forward to an even better weekend! Today I want to talk about my tips and tricks to getting glowy skin. Without further ado lets get down to it!
Skincare is a huuuuge part in making you look dewy and fresh-faced. My cleanser of choice lately has been Soap & Glory's Peaches and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk. This is a creamy cleanser packed with peach and gojuice extracts along with oxygiseng that serve to clarify your pores and leave your skin soft to the touch. I've found that this product deeply cleanses my face while also moisturizing my bone-dry skin. It truly does leave my skin looking clean and luminous. I had never tried milk cleansers before but after trying this one, I don't think I'll ever look back! The bottle of this cleanser is massive and super affordable, so if you're in the market for some new skincare products then consider picking this one up.
After applying my cleanser, I use Pixi's Glow Tonic on my face twice a day. This product is a toner that I swear to god must be made of unicorn tears, it's so incredible. I struggle with redness on my cheeks and uneven skintone in general, and this toner works wonders for me. It neutralizes the color of my skin and also brightens my entire complexion. It doesn't leave me feeling dry like some toner does and I've never experienced any breakouts from it. If you want your face to shine bright like a diamond (which lets face it - you do), this product is a must-have.
The final step in my skincare routine is always moisturizing. As I alluded to before, my skin has a tendency to be super dry, especially in the harsh New England winter months. My absolute favorite moisturizer that I've tried to date is First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration. It is a bit pricey so I opt to get the travel size version, but it seriously is worth every penny. My skin feels like it's drinking up this moisturizer. It never leaves behind a greasy or sticky film and it instantly tackles any and all dry patches on my face. My skin never fails to look and feel healthy after applying this.
As far as makeup goes, I've raved about this foundation before and here I am raving about it again - Urban Decay's Naked Skin foundation possesses my entire heart and soul. It is a lightweight, medium coverage foundation that is super comfortable on my face. It leaves my skin looking incredibly natural with a subtle glow to it. It fills in my pores, never clings to my dry patches, and leaves my skin looking luminous all day. If you want a foundation that gives you a natural no makeup-makeup look but have some skin imperfections that you want to hide, I highly suggest this foundation. You're guaranteed to get compliments on your beautiful skin when wearing it.
Now you know all of my tip-top secrets to achieving fresh and dewy looking skin! What are your favorite products to get that all-natural, glowing goddess look?
