With some effort and the right products, your skin can look bright in an instant—artista genes and millions in the bank not required. Just follow these five easy tips:
You don't need to be a makeup pro to look like you're lit from within and to add dimension to your pretty face. Try using a powder highlighter and apply it with a brush to these areas of your face: under your brow bones, along the bridge of your nose, above your cheekbones, your Cupid's bow, and the inner corners of your eyes.
Cleanse your face every night
It's important to wash off dirt and oil from your face after a long day. Use a mild cleanser that suits your skin type, and gently massage the face using a circular motion to improve blood circulation. Make this skincare basic a daily habit and you're on your way to achieving glowing skin.
Slough off dead skin cells on your face and all over your body twice or thrice a week so that it can better reflect light. "Dead skin cells [that] pile up diffuse light, making skin look dull," explains Jeannette Graf, a dermatology professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. Remember to exfoliate gently to prevent skin irritation, inflammation, and breakouts.
Wear an overnight face mask
Work on getting that glow while you sleep. Wear a hydrating and antioxidant-rich overnight face mask. Designed to be applied before bed and rinsed off in the morning, face masks have one common goal: to moisturize your skin. "The skin undergoes more cellular repair during sleep and can be more receptive to products at this time," says Annie Chiu, M.D., a California-based dermatologist.
For your hands and body, use products containing glutathione and vitamin C
