As I love wearing (almost) no makeup, I do my best to take good care of my skin and try to achieve a gorgeous dewy glow every day. In just five steps you can get here too! It’s all about the right cleanser, the serum of your choice, facial massage, moisturizing and protecting.
My skin: Overall my skin is slightly dry and sometimes a little sensitive. Now and then I have an occasional breakout around the chin or jawbone. I look for glow, hydration and protection from my skincare routine.
Choosing the right cleanser
Skincare is all about using products that work for your skin. There just isn’t one way to get to that flawless, dewy skin. I have tried many different products over the years, water based, oil based. The one I am currently using, I got through my beautician. The LOOkX derma daily cleanser. I will never exchange it for another! When you first start using it, you need to built it up, as the products is just that powerful. It’s the only product that got my skin cleared up, no pimples, even during my periods(!). For sure recommend trying, if you haven’t found your match yet.
A serum that makes you glow
Adding a serum to your daily skincare is essential. The Starskin Orglamic Pink Cactus Serum Mist is just everything. Love that it comes as a spray. During Summer this is definitely my best friend as it was just so refreshing to use during the day. Leaves your skin hydrated, plump and glowy!
Facial massage for lift and glow
Gua Sha massaging promises to give you an instant natural facelift. This is what made me very interested in trying it for myself. Could it really help me sculpt and lift my face? When using it for the first time I was surprised to find that it actually worked! The largest difference I noticed with lifting my brows. Somehow they actually stayed in the desired position, giving my eyes a much more open look.
Sounds great! But what’s the catch? Obviously massaging your face with a Gua Sha stone once, won’t give you long term results. You will have to continue using the stone everyday to maintain the results.
Moisturizing is key
Whatever your skintype, moistuzing is everything when it comes to skincare. Don’t want to invest in an elaborate skincare routine? Then at least get yourself a good moisturizer. I’m currently loving the Starskin Orglamic Pink Cactus Pudding. When choosing yours, at least make sure it doesn’t contain parabens, silicones and harsh preservatives.
Protecting your skin
Protecting your skin with a sunscreen is really the best way to go against and prevent aging. If this is not in your daily routine, make sure to add this NOW. “But sunscreen will clog my pores.” I can assure you, if you pick a sunscreen especially formulated for your face, it won’t clog your pores or make your skin creasy. It will even moisturize and give your skin a beautiful glow. Try to go for at least SPF30, but preferably SPF50 to get the protection your skin needs.
