It’s the feeling and the look so many of us have been after for ages—forever, it feels like—and you might have even given up hope. Well, we’re here to tell you a not-so-secret secret: glowing skin is possible. In fact, it’s easier to achieve than you might think…if you have the right ingredients and a few of our tips on your side.
SKIN CARE TIPS FOR GLOWING SKIN
What do you think of when you picture glowing skin? A light almost from within, the kind you get in those fleeting moments after a jog with a friend? Skin that’s supple and youthful and fresh? In short, the kind of complexion you see on magazine models and kind of thought wasn’t for you?
Glowing skin is not just for models. There is a science to naturally glowing skin, and we’re going to share it.
How can you make your skin glow?
Let’s start with your skin care routine.
1. Just-right cleansing and exfoliating
Getting rid of dead skin cells, dirt and the day’s makeup always goes a long way toward giving your skin that shiny, fresh look.
Our White Willow Purifying Cleansing Gel contains natural salicylic acid (from the white willow bark), so it acts as a gentle exfoliator that cleanses without stripping. With fresh skin cells in the spotlight, your skin has its best shot of really glowing day to day.
2. Saturating your skin with a mist, topped by a face oil
It’s a fine balance: You want your skin to look dewy but not greasy. That’s why we recommend using a face mist to replenish and prep the skin and then applying a plant-based face oil to seal in the hydration.
Our Rosehip and Black Cumin Perfecting Face Oil is a must-have: the cranberry gives your skin heaps of Vitamin C, which is one of the ultimate natural skin brighteners.
3. Hydrate with a mask infused with humectants
Humectants are powerful natural long-lasting moisture boosters. A few examples include honey, aloe vera, vegetable glycerin and hyaluronic acid. Our Superfruit AHA Brightening Masque employs alpha hydroxy acids and honey for deep nourishment and that sun-kissed just-got-back-from-holidays glow.
