Sunless Steps to Glowing Summer Skin
With summer in full swing, a glowing complexion should be at the top of everyone’s list. With a few simple additions to your skin care routine and makeup bag, maintaining a healthy complexion is totally doable.
Here are some great products and looks to try to get your glow on:
Make Way for Clarisonic
The must-have tool for healthy, glowing skin all year long is the Clarisonic Facial Cleansing Brush, starting at $99. Two minutes a day is all your skin needs to be gently exfoliated. Removing your makeup at the end of the day lets your skin better absorb moisturizer — and your makeup will go on smooth and look flawless all day.
Ban the Hot Water
We all LOVE our long, hot showers, but keeping the water more tepid will help your skin retain natural moisture. Try using body creams or lotions instead; the richer the product the more moisture for your skin.
Switch Your Foundation
As the seasons change, so should your makeup. Your skin will look and feel dewier if you use a hydrating tinted moisturizer or foundation and skip the powder all together. Or, add just a veil of talc-free powder to set your makeup and get a subtle, velvety glow.
Highlight Your Cheekbones
You know that red carpet glow all the celebrities seem to have? The secret is adding a bit of shimmery cream highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones, brow bones and tip of your nose. My absolute favorite product for this is Julie Hewett Shimmy Cream Highlighter, $24. It is the perfect creamy texture and can be layered over powder blush and bronzer. For some evening glamour, blend sparingly to the collarbones when wearing a low neckline top or dress.
Now, get glowing!
