Tips for Flawless, Glowing Skin!

As I was getting ready for work this morning, trying to decide if I wanted to wear makeup or not (I know, beauty guru stepping out of her house without being full glam?! *GASP!*) when I realized that my skin has come a long way in the last year. I was dry, flaky, itchy, red, irritated, textured... it was so bad.  But now when I look in the mirror, I see a reflection of skin I am happy to be in.

A student actually asked me the other day what highlighter I was wearing, to which I replied, "moisturizer!" For anyone who suffers from dry skin such as myself knows this is an especially wonderful compliment. "Glowing" was never a word I would use to describe my skin a year ago but now it is. 

So how did I engineer this transformation? Simply: great skincare and high-quality makeup.

Here are a few of my "How to Get Glowing Skin" Tips & Tricks (with product suggestions):

1. Gently Cleanse Skin! - Do not use soap or anything that is strips the skin of its natural oil (even if you are oily!) ... Here are some honorable mentions:
Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil
Pixi by Petra + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse
Tatcha Camellia Pure Cleansing Oil

2. Exfoliate! EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! - Use chemical exfoliants that will work to buff off the top layer of dead skin and leaves behind AHAs or BHAs that help hydrate and brighten the skin.  DO NOT use overly abrasive physical exfoliants, especially if you have sensitive skin like me!
Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic
Dr. Dennis Gross Original Strength Peel Pads

3. Use Vitamin- C! This is the secret ingredient to GLOW! Not only does it help protect skin from sun-damage by enhancing the sunscreen you should be using each day, but it also helps reverse sun-damage by correcting hyper-pigmentation and softening fine lines and wrinkles.

4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! I cannot stress this enough! Oily or not, this is key to your skins health.  Because I am so dry, I emulsify an oil into my moisturizer daily, twice a day!
DAYTIME Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb + Josie Maran Argan Oil
NIGHTTIME - Belif The True Cream Moisture Bomb + FRESH Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil

Tinted Moisturizers are also a great option for any skin type, especially to mask or reduce some visible redness from dry, itchy, inflamed, or acne-prone skin, some of my favorites are:
Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer
Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm
Senegence Tinted Moisturizer (you can order this through my FB group)

5. Lastly, FAKE IT TIL YA MAKE IT! What do I mean by that? You can create glow where there is none (until your skin becomes healthy and more balanced) by mixing cream highlighters into your moisturizer or foundation.
Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter
CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops
Senegence MakeSense Pearlizer (you can order this through my FB group)


** These are my holy grail products to create radiant, healthy skin! I hope some of these products help you get the glow of your dreams! XOXO **
