What girl doesn’t want radiant, dewy looking skin like you see in all the magazines!? With so many products on the market, it seems overwhelming to find the perfect combination of products to make your skin look as flawless as possible. After years of being in front of the camera, working with top makeup artists, and getting feedback from other models I work with, I’ve decided to share some of these tips/tricks! Now you can have supermodel looking skin that won’t cost you much and will leave you glowing all day long! Here are my easy and affordable tips/tricks for glowing skin..
PROPER MAKEUP REMOVAL:
Before bed, remove all your makeup thoroughly! Invest in some little washcloths and you’ll quickly find that washing your face with your hands and some makeup remover/cleanser only, just doesn’t cut it! Make sure to remove all that dirt and buildup with the help of a washcloth and warm water. Follow up with a refreshing toner. I like to use Earth Science Herbal Tonic Mist which is completely natural and oil-free.
Once a week you’ll want to apply a deep pore cleaning mask. The one I love is Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask . This product is made from 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay which draws out toxins from the skin, shrinks your pores, prevents breakouts, exfoliates, and leaves your skin looking super soft and smooth. Another benefit that I’ve noticed from using it is that it noticeable reduces red marks/discoloration on the skin. Ingredients you’ll need are: 1 teaspoon of the clay powder, 1 teaspoon water or apple cider vinegar, and a non-metal cup/bowl/spoon for mixing. Mix all the ingredients til it becomes a paste consistence. Apply to your face with your fingers and leave on for 20 minutes until it dries and feels tight. Rinse the mask off with warm water and wait about 30 minutes for any slight redness in the skin to go down. Trust me, this product works wonders!
Skin is happiest when it’s well hydrated and moisturized. Don’t skip out on drinking plenty of water throughout the day! I know coffee can be pretty addicting, but you’ll want to double up on your water intake if you want that skin looking anywhere near J-Lo status.
I know many women spend loads of money on fancy serums, potions, and creams. A model I used to work with a lot who also has sensitive skin like me once recommended a product I have used religiously (every morning) for 2 years now! The best news is that you can find it at your local drugstore and the even better news is that it has loads of benefits to your skin. It’s called Garnier Skin-Active Clearly Brighter Anti-Sun Damage Daily Moisturizer. This daily UV lotion totally improves skin texture. It’s oil free, non greasy, comes with SPF 30, and helps prevent dark spots and discoloration to the skin. You’re left with beautiful, glowing, and even looking skin tone.
STAY LOOKING REFRESHED ALL DAY:
Jane Irdale Balance Hydration Spray is basically liquid gold. It’s the most refreshing feeling spray on my skin and best makeup setting spray that I’ve ever used. If you’re looking to hydrate your skin, you can spritz this before applying your foundation or do what I do and spray it after your makeup application to set the look and leave a refreshed glow to your skin. You won’t ever be left with a powdery, dry, or caked on feeling after you spray your makeup with this. You’ll also be happy to know that that this formula is certified natural and organic which means it’s perfect for even the most sensitive of skin types.
I hope you’re excited to start looking and feeling your best! Let me know which products you’ve tried and loved!?
