Listen, we all want our skin to glow like JLO’s, glowing skin is a sign of youth and health. And especially now when winter is really wreaking havoc on our skin and leaving it dry and dull, we need tips badly. So here to help is our girl beauty expert, Milly Almodovar to show us how we can have radiant dewy skin all year long.
Add Charcoal To Your Routine
Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel $20
A study showed this year that pollution, is just making skin look dull, lackluster and spotty. I always tell people to add Charcoal to their routine. Charcoal is great because it draws and attracts a massive amount of toxins and pollutions off of your skin, more so than any other cleanser. It will wipe away the pollution, makeup, and dirt off of your skin effectively. So once you wash with this, your skin will be completely clean of all the damage you’ve caused it during the day. What I love about this one is you can use it everyday without worrying about overydrying your skin. http://www.sephora.com
Vichy Double Glow Peel Face Mask $20
This peel/mask is specifically meant to brighten dull skin. It contains alpha hydroxyl acids(fruit cells) which help remove dead cells. Then volcanic rock crushed into ultra fine powder gently exfoliates the skin. Put it on for 5 minutes, and your skin will glow glow glow. http://www.vichyusa.com/double-glow-peel-face-mask-3337875508896.html
Add Oils To Your Routine and even to your foundation
Elemis Superfood Facial Oil $72
This contains a mix of omega rich, vitamin c rich Broccolli, Flax sees oil and Radish Oil to give skin an instant glow, and it sinks right in so won’t leave skin feeling greasy. Plus when you add a little to your foundation, your dry skin will look dewy not greasy because these oil sink right in. http://www.elemis.com/us/superfood-facial-oil.html
Nourish Organic Skin Boost Cream To Oil Treatment with Lemon & Cassia $24.99 (I mix a little with foundation and apply on my legs for glow and to cover scars. )
This actually turns from a cream to oil on skin. I’ll show the difference in my hands when I put this on hand and leave the other hand bare.
This contains lemon oil that detoxifies and brightens skin dramatically because of it’s high vitamin c count, cassia oil tighten and lift the skin but the cassia oil also contains an aroma that stimulates the central nervous system so you actually feel good when using this. http://www.nourighorganic.com
Night Time. Yes you can give your skin a glow by doing things right at night.
Your body boost blood flow to the skin while you sleep which means if you aren’t getting adequate sleep, you aren’t going to wake up with a glow, and your skin will look dry and lackluster.
Skin Better Rejuvenate Regenerating AlphaRet Overnight Face Cream $110
This is my current night cream and it just won an Allure Beauty Breakthrough Award. It’s pricey, but there’s a reason why. This is one of the first creams to successfully put alpha hydroxy’s (which give a slight peel to the skin) along with a retinol (builds collagen which is essential for a glow/and increases cell turnover). What I found with using this is I wake up to much brighter, and glowing skin, and when this product was tested, it worked just a well as prescription strength retinoid. https://skinbetter.com/products/rejuvenate-regenerating-alpharet-overnight-face-cream/
Sleep on Copper-yes Copper Pillows!
Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase with Copper Oxide $60
Sleeping on cotton not only creates wrinkles (ever wake up and got those lines on your face) but common also sucks the moisture out of your skin.
The pillowcase fibers are carefully embedded with CupronCopper Oxide technology, derived from a well-known essential mineral. It’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles for smoother, younger-looking skin in as little as four weeks with a continuing effect over time. Copper is naturally found in your skin and is known to play an important role in the skin’s renewal process. It has been used in makeup, face creams and other skincare products for years, and one of its key properties is its ability to promote the natural growth of proteins in the skin. http://www.sephora.com/skin-rejuvenating-pillowcase-with-copper-oxide-P392372?skuId=1682160&icid2=products%20grid:p392372
This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray $29
This contains Lavendar, chamomile, and Vetivert to really make you sleep better. I was skeptical of this at first, but now I don’t sleep without it. I have never slept better. http://www.dermstore.com
