Ever wondered if your skin is lacking its usual glow? A bright and vibrant skin tone can be easily achieved with various highlights and illuminators, but there is a way to naturally give your complexion a dewy finish without the use of makeup. Incorporate these little tips into your usual skincare routine to give skin a fresh and youthful glow.

Skincare routine

A consistent skincare routine will not only help skin look and feel better, but will also control oil which leads to less breakouts. Use products which are simple and won’t overcomplicate or clog the skin, and always remove every bit of makeup before going to bed. Facial toners help to remove that extra bit of makeup on the skin, take away excess oil and also tighten pores and control future breakouts.

Depending on your skin type, exfoliators are a great way to cleanse the skin and remove any excess dry patches clinging onto problem areas of the face. To be used no more than twice a week, these products are highly recommended since they leave skin looking and feeling good as new. If an exfoliator is too rough for your skin, try using a scrub which isn’t as abrasive and won’t leave skin feeling squeaky-clean and striped of all its natural oils.

Be gentle

If you’re removing makeup from the eyes, try and be gentle since continuous rubbing will most likely make the area sore and puffy. Avoid using makeup wipes since this part of the face is far too delicate and should be treated with care. Instead, apply a small amount of makeup remover onto a cotton pad and press lightly over eyes until the area is clean.

Moisturising is a crucial part of any skincare routine, since neglected dry skin can often crack and cause premature ageing. Whether you’re getting ready in the morning or taking it all off at night, remember to moisturise your face and neck and you’ll immediately notice a difference in your skin.

Facial serums work wonders to repair broken skin, improve skin tone and overall create a bright and gorgeous complexion. Most formulas are extremely concentrated, so only use a few drops on the entire face to soothe and cleanse the skin at night.

Beauty balms

Just like serums, beauty balms are concentrated formulas which are usually organic and are filled with various antioxidants to renew the appearance of skin. To enjoy all of their benefits, apply at night after you’ve removed your makeup, cleansed and allow the beauty balm to melt into the skin and deeply hydrate dry or problem areas. Also gentle enough to use on almost any other part of the body which needs extra attention.

Use sunscreen

Make sure to use a sunscreen or SPF in your makeup or skincare routine, since this won’t leave skin feeling haggard and leathery in the future. Protect dewy skin against sun damage, lines and wrinkles by using a sunscreen even when the sun isn’t shining.
