4 Ways to Revive Dull Skin Now
Spring is officially one week away and with the changing season, there’s one thing most of us want for our skin—radiance. But if you’ve ever wondered exactly how to, well you know, get glowing, we have a few top tips for you. Exfoliate Your complexion appears more radiant when it’s smooth enough to reflect light. When dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of your skin, it diffuses light, making your complexion look dull. Slough them away by exfoliating at night as opposed to in the morning to get the double benefit of removing all the gunk that’s built up during the day. We like PCA Skin Gentle Exfoliant for a nourishing polish. Juice Up Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that brightens skin and helps fade sun spots that make your skin look flat and dull. Plus, it stimulates collagen production to combat fine lines and wrinkles. Now that your diligently exfoliating away the old, let the new shine brightly by adding this powerfully rejuvenating ingredient. Try Naturopathica Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum for a difference you can see and feel. Enhance Your Glow So summer isn’t here yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fake a subtle glow. Enter: champagne shade highlighter. Not only, does it enhance any complexion, but it’s also easy to apply. If your skin is normal or dry, go for a cream formula. Use your fingertips to tap up and down your cheekbones, the center of your chin, and the tip of your nose. If you tend to be more oily, dust a powder formula over the same areas with a small brush. If you need any help with this or other makeup techniques, we offer a makeup application after a facial or we also offer makeup application lessons.
