Get Glowing Skin

Get Glowing Skin

Sun’s out, buns out, right? Now, how to magically become a glowing goddess after coming out from winter hibernation? Here are my top tips to get glowing skin:


Exfoliate

Incorporate a scrub into your beauty routine once a week. Exfoliating removes dead/dry skin cells revealing a fresh new layer of skin while increasing blood circulation and enhancing natural glow. Do this in the shower then lock in that moisture with a creamy body butter afterwards. You don’t need to buy any new products either for this one! Here’s my favourite homemade exfoliating recipe:

Mix:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3-4 Tbsp sugar (white or brown) or coffee grounds
  • 2 drops of lavender or rose essential oil (optional)

Highlighter
Use a shimmery highlighter! I usually dust my personal fave–Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder–on the tops of my cheek bones, bridge of my nose and right under my eyebrows. It’s actually amazing how much a difference a highlighter makes in brightening up your face and creating that shimmering glow.

Coconut Oil
I’m sure you’ve heard a ton about coconut oil and for good reason! With it’s super high saturated fat content, this stuff is incredibly moisturizing. If you’ve got any dry spots, scales, or even eczema, try it out after a shower. I also love using the oil as an eye makeup remover and eyelash moisturizer.

Bronzing Body Butters
You don’t need to make a trip to the tanning salon or lay out in the sun for an unhealthy amount of time to get an instant sun-kissed look. Try out a bronzing body butter like Pacifica’s Bronzing Body Butter which smells ahhh-mazing and is usually found in most health food stores. It’s essentially a tinted body lotion with a touch of shimmer!

Take your vitamins
Radiant skin comes from the inside! Make sure you’re getting enough vitamins–especially B and C. Vitamin C is known for its skin boosting properties and a lot of beauty products are now incorporating the ingredient into their formulas. Up your intake of citrus fruits, bell peppers, and leafy greens. Vitamin B helps with moisture retention and prevents dry skin. Fish and eggs are a good source of B12. If you’re vegetarian, try a supplement.
