In all honesty, it’s hard to maintain our skin in a healthy state 24/7. Let alone resembling a glowing angel. There are many factors that can play into one’s appearance. A photograph in a magazine may feature someone with clearly beautiful, radiant skin, but the truth of the matter is that there is much more going behind the scenes. Aside from photoshop tweaking & editing, there is diet and disciplined movement (getting that sweat on!) that play a role in one’s complexion. Now, there are some that just have crazy genes, and can eat whatever they want without having to worry over a blemish, or dullness, but that is less common and let’s not dwell on that or get jealous!
These are my current must-haves for your best glowing skin yet, this season...
GLOW FLOW CHEFS ENERGIZING MATCHA LATTE
Even with the chillier weather among us now, I’m staying consistent with my smoothies and juices, everyday. Keeping with a diet that’s high in dark leafy greens and glow-inducing fruit is major. Another beverage I like to drink and have seen benefits with is matcha. Yes, this antioxidant-rich tea is so yummy in the mornings with almond milk & agave nectar. I’ve been drinking this unique blend by The Glow Chefs, which besides matcha (the finest), consists of reishi mushroom, lion's mane mushroom, Ashwagandha Root and more healing ingredients.
INSTANATURAL'S GLYCOLIC ACID SERUM
Now to true topical skincare products, this serum is incredible for exfoliation. You can feel it at work as it tingles, sinking into the skin immediately after it’s applied. I use this about 2-3x a week, cutting back to about once a week as the chillier air picks up and increases potential for dryness on my skin.
If your skin is naturally on the dry side, I urge you to try this next product...
EVERYDAY NATURAL'S SEA BERRY + POMEGRANATE FACE OIL
Our Everyday Natural’s Sea Berry + Pomegranate Face Oil is the holy grail of skin oils for a glowing complexion. It’s infused with glow-enhancing sea buckthorn oil and lemon peel extract. Only 1-3 drops are needed to see it work through your skin. I can’t recommend this luxury botanical oil enough.
EVERYDAY NATURAL'S POMEGRANATE PLACE LIP BUTTER
You can’t neglect the lips when it comes to achieving the overall “glow” effect. The Pomegranate Place Lip Butter acts as an instant moisture-locking barrier, giving a natural fullness to the lips. And the mouth-watering fruity aroma...
ACURE'S BRIGHTENING, GLOWING SERUM
Acure's Brightening, Glowing Serum is so rich with combined skin nutrients from kale, spirulina, chlorella and broccoli seed to name a few. I love infusing the similar key nutrients from these veggies for my skin topically, as I do internally.
EVERYDAY MINERALS POLISHED ALL OVER SHIMMER
In the colder months especially, I tend to cover up more and not soak in all the rays of past summer. So, Polished All Over Shimmer, gives my complexion the perfect balance of added warmth and weightless feel, and a subtle glow, without the many toxic chemicals a number of facial self-tanners have but will never boast.
We actually have 4 All Over Shimmers to choose from, so if Polished is too light or dark for you, never fear!
