Skincare That Will Make You Glow
I'm talking oils, masks and creams...
My skincare routine all year around consists of products that help keep my skin protected and hydrated but when Spring/Summer comes, I maintain the hydrating products but seriously amp up the glow factor by throwing in some extra steps that help keep my skin radiant and rosy. Whether it's through exfoliating masks, Vitamin C face oils or anti-pollution skincare, today I'm talking through a few of my favourites.
MASK IT: For some serious peel action and instant radiance, I'll layer on the Caudalie Glycolic Peel, a gentle resurfacing treatment mask with Glycolic Acid and Papaya Enzymes, that refines my skins texture to reveal a glowing complexion. One thick layer over the skin left on for 10 minutes twice a week is all you need for a smooth skin surface, unclogged pores and plump, dewy skin.
SERUM: Hydrated skin is the key to a glow and the Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Serum* is immensely hydrating and soothing due to it's plant based prebiotic ingredients. The light texture of this serum is comfortable on the skin and soothes, helping to strengthen my skins protective barrier which in the long run, will maintain my healthy glow.
OIL UP: If there's a step to turn the glow up a notch, it's here. Face oils have got to be one of my favourite skincare products, they are beautiful on all skin types and the best way of adding moisture that penetrates beneath the surface for intensive, long lasting hydration. In the morning I reach for oils that will boost my skin, help combat dullness and really give my skin that fresh, awake look. The Kiehls Daily Revive Concentrate is a classic and a staple in my beauty cupboard. The immense ingredient list of ginger root, sunflower and tamanu all aid in keeping my skin youthful and radiant. The Hero Project Glow Drops* is also ranked pretty high in my oil collection, packed full of essential oils and Vitamin C, it's a post gym glow in a bottle.
MOISTURE TIME: There's a new moisturiser on the block here that I've been dipping in and out of, TimeBomb Glory Days*; a 4 in 1 that primes, evens, hydrates and brightens without leaving a tacky feeling on the skin that we all hate. Not only does this lock in my face oil, it gives my skin with a pre-makeup glow to boost anything that goes on top.
