When it comes to having glowing skin, everybody wants a piece of the action. In fact, there are plenty of people out there who are taking highlighter to the extreme, just so they can have that beautiful glowing look. And we’ll agree here, there is something great about walking down the street, knowing that your skin is the centre of attention for all of the right reasons.
But how do you actually achieve this look, and make your skin glow like there’s no tomorrow? Here are 5 simple tips.
1. Use an SPF moisturiser
Whilst many people out there think that they are only useful when the weather is warming up, SPF moisturisers are totally great for your skin. Why, you ask? Well, the rays from the sun can make your skin look tired and dull, and they also speed up the aging process, too. Whether the sun is out, or the skies are looking grey, it’s a good idea to keep this trick up your sleeve for glowing skin.
2. Drink water
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: water is your best friend if you want glowing skin. A lot of the time, your skin looks – and is – dehydrated, and as soon as you up your water intake, you’ll have that lovely natural glow that we’re all going head over heels for (and splashing out for at the makeup counter). And why spend more when water is pretty much free, and is nature’s way of allowing you to glow up?
3. Avoid alcohol
Whilst we’re on the subject of drinking, it’s a good idea to make sure that you avoid alcohol as much as you can. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a little tipple every now and again, but if you go overboard, then your skin will look dull and tired. If you think that it would benefit you, then looking into rehab centres is a good idea. There are many other – more important – benefits to this, but keeping you looking fresh is one of them!
4. Highlight your collarbones
We don’t know how this works (we’re just going to attribute it to science) but many of those skincare gurus and glow-obsessives out there don’t limit their highlighter usage to their faces. Oh no, it’s a good idea to put some highlighter on your neck and collarbones, if you really want to draw attention to this part of your look. Don’t go too far with this, of course, but a little can go a long way.
5. Exfoliate (a little)
Exfoliating is a great way to keep your skin glowing and fresh, but make sure that you don’t use anything too harsh here. Get this just right, and you’ll find that those old, tired skin cells are a thing of the past, and you’re left looking fresh-faced. You don’t have to do this every day; every other day should do the job nicely, but give this a try and see what the results are for your glow-up.
So, if you want to make your skin glow, then remember these 5 simple tips!
