5 Easy Steps to Glowing Skin

Get perfect skin and glow, glow, glow sister!

  1. Skip the contour and head straight to the highlighter

Contour adds unnecessary shadow to the face. Bringing unneeded darkness is not optimal to a bright, glowing face. Skip the brown powder for day time and instead stick to the natural contour of the cheekbones. Focus on using a highlighter to illuminate the most prominent areas of the face (top of the cheekbones, above the jaw, chin, between eyebrows,  bridge of the nose and cupids bow.)

We recommend: The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer ($29.99 from David Jones, as pictured above.)

2. Use a humidifier

A humidifier is a portable machine (usually used on small babies, but also applicable to full grown ones) which inserts moisture into the air. It allows us to fight of the dryness (which = dullness) all year round (even in winter, when all moisture goes to Bali for schoolies).

We recommend a Mini Humidifier ($60) from Urban Outfitters, as pictured above.

3.  Rosehip Oil

Rose hip oil:  a.k.a: a natural source of Vitamin C ( which brightens and tightens the skin) should be used once or twice a week, as apart of a night time routine (letting it soak into the skin whilst you sleep). It’s literally the skins best friend. Well, WAS the skins best friend until that huge fight they had last month, now they just see each other once or twice a week at yoga.

We recommend: Kora Organics’ Luxurious Rosehip Oil ($49.95 from David Jones, as pictured above.)

4.  Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

Derived from cane sugar, Glycolic acid is able to deeply and easily cleanse the skin and in doing so removes the roughened skin responsible for dullness. Luckily for use, Mario Badescu’s Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is packed full of the stuff! Making it the best thing to happen to you since you won that pie eating contest in 08.’

$23 AUD from Mecca Cosmetics, as pictured above

5. Maduka Honey Mask

Benefit 1: Skin as soft as though its been religiously exfoliated for a week

Benefit 2: It’s literally the Meryl Streep of spot treatments. Mamma Mia! thats a big call.

Anti- benefit: Tastes like honey’s, cruel, bitter step mum.

We Recommend: Swisse’s Manuka Honey Detoxifying Facial Mask ($17.99 from Priceline Pharmacies, as pictured above.)
