Glow Getters

Hands up if you're chasing a glowing complexion? Through out the skincare types, whether you're struggling with dryness, oil or pimples, achieving a healthy glow seems to be a fairly common dream. I've been trialling a few glow getting ways recently and have come up with the following three categories;

Glowing From Within: the most favourable of all but not always the most achievable. All the standard things here, look after your insides and see the benefits outside. That means knocking back the water, upping the fruit and veg intake and even throwing a bit of exercise into the mix. It may seem like a lot all at once but making small changes one at a time is much more achievable and you're sure to notice the difference-you'll feel a tonne better about yourself too!

Glow Inducing Skincare- so you want to see the results a little faster than with the lifestyle changes above but not necessarily in too much of a 'right here right now' kinda rush- time to hit up the skincare. There are a whole tonne of glow promising skincare products on the market, masks like Ren's Glycolactic Radiance Renewal, serums like Antipode's Apostle and cleansers like Antipode's Juliet. All are relatively speedy in their effectiveness- use the night before will almost certainly result in a more glowy complexion come morning but as with most skincare things, regular use will be the most effective.

Last Minute Instant Glow- lifestyle choices haven't been the best lately, you didn't use anything glow inducing in last night's skincare routine and you've woken up with a slightly bleh looking complexion- stress not, there's still hope. A radiance primer is a good start, think Bourjois' Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer, either applied alone before your usual base or mixed in to a foundation. Creamy formula's are also great to up the glow, Laura Mercier's Bonne Mine Palette is a great complexion all rounder, highlighter, blush and a little bronzer to ensure that cheeks are super radiant.

Radiant complexion sorted no matter how little time you've got.  I'd love to hear your favourite glow inducing beauty tips below.

  2. I sure am after that healthy glow! Haha, also because my face is riddled with acne scars, really making my complexion look dull! I definitely use lots of skincare that helps brighten the skin. I should really start drinking more water, and upping the fruit and veg...haha :P

  7. I really want to try out the Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Serum! My best tip for glowing from within is a) drink lots of water and b) be happy and confident. I definitely feel glowy with a smile on my dial ;)
