4 MUST-HAVES FOR GLOWING SKIN
A lot of you guys have been asking about what I use on my skin to get "that glow"... so I'm here to share a few products I am using right now that help me achieve it!
Bottom line, it takes a few steps (cleansing, moisturizing, prepping & highlighting) but totally easy to do.
The first key step is exfoliation. Dead skin cells leave the skin looking dull & grey, even highlighting can't cover that up! I found an awesome scrub by Dr. Brandt - PoreDermabrasion Scrub. I was initially attracted by the name because I have giant pores and they get clogged so easily. I always need something to keep them clear. You can actually feel this product working & my face is so smooth after.
After cleansing, I used a multitude of hydrating oils including, Dr. Brandt Brightening Vitamin C oil and Dr. Brandt Sunshine Vitamin D oil. I mix these into together with my Korres Black Pine Night Oil (mentioned here in my Top 5 Beauty Products of the Moment) for ultimate glow and hydration.
I ALWAYS go for vitamin C products. I have always suffered from hyper pigmentation because of my birth control & foolishly letting my face in the sun without sunscreen when I was younger. It really helps even skin tone and brighten up those dull spots.
After cleansing & hydrating, I use the ULTIMATE CC CREAM - Erborian CC Crème ! Trust me, it's an amazing color corrector. My first love was with BB creams but it's all about CC creams for reasons stated above. Glowing, even tone skin is the goal.
The finishing touch is my favorite little secret. I use MAC cosmetics eye shadow color "All That Glitters" to highlight the bridge of my nose, inner top and under edges of my eye brows, top of my cheek bones, my cupids bow & upper lip. See funny diagram below
