Thank you for joining us for Beauty A-Z! For G, I’m discussing how to get glowing skin.
According to the local weather forecast, the high temperature in Kentucky today will be 3 degrees. It’s been bone-chilling cold all winter and my skin is in need of some serious TLC. Cold air and dry heat parch skin and make it look dull, so I am constantly trying to find ways to improve my tone. Here are a few ways I try to accomplish glowing skin:
Drink lots of water. I preach this all the time, but it is one of the best things you can do for yourself. The benefits reach far beyond glowing skin- it’s good for every part of your body.
Exercise: working out gets your blood pumping and gives skin a beautiful, natural glow. If all the other benefits of exercise don’t sway you, let this be the one!
Don’t Over-Exfoliate: I fall victim to this myself. I swear by exfoliating, but it’s best to do it at night and only a couple of times a week. Using a gentle cleanser and washcloth will produce a similar effect.
Use toner: toner helps shrink the look of pores (I especially like to use it after I’ve washed my face with a cleansing cloth).
Moisturize: always and forever. Dry skin looks dull. I douse my skin in face oil and it takes care of all the flaky patches. Oil seems intimidating but it’s the perfect winter product.
Fake it til’ you make it: Use a product that will help you glow, like a BB cream, highlighter, Candlelight by Too Faced, or this new Bare Minerals Gel that everyone is raving about (debating picking some up myself).
