1.PIXI SKINTREATS GLOW TONIC 100ML £10
So I'm going to kick this off with my go to product if I'm running late usually on my way to work, and need to brighten and freshen up my face quick!
The name 'glow tonic' isn't a lie, the Glyconic Acid is a quick fix to help remove dead skin cells leaving your skin new and glowing, Some may think acid whattttttt? Perhaps think it leaves skin dry or tight but it does the exact opposite. As my 'morning rush' go to it leaves me feeling as if I've had a mini facial/exfoliate and all within about 2mins.
I apply the tonic by putting some on a cotton pad and rubbing across my skin in outward motions. The great thing about it is you can use it on it's own and with little effort leave the house with brightened refreshed skin.
2.No7 SKIN ILLUMINATOR £12.50
So this multi-faceted product is just an all round NEED. I usually use this lightweight illuminator all over my face on top of the Dermalogica moisturiser for a glowing complexion. Weather it's a natural day or a glammed up night this can be used on all occasions - I always mix it in with my foundation for extra luminance as I love a dewy/glowy look. Once my foundation is on I add a little extra to my cheekbones for that final sparkle. When you're feeling a little dull but have no time or energy to doll yourself up, chuck this on to give yourself that glow boost you need!
3.JURLIQUE HERBAL REMEDY ADVANCED SERUM £52
This product is my FAVE! When your skins feeling dull rub 1-2 pumps onto your face in outward motions to boost elasticity and hydrate it to the max. Honestly makes the skin look so glowy, young and fresh. If you're feeling a no make up day but still want to look radiant and bright, this works best if you apply the serum first, then an oil like Rose or Coconut oil and then a moisturiser to lock it all in. I don't want to bang on too much about this product but for real it's great and worth the investment.
PS - IT'S ON SALE ON cocosa.co.uk for £24.40!!!!
4.DERMALOGICA SUPER SENSITIVE SHIELD £46
So this moisturiser I use daily because it’s an SPF, it’s so important to protect your skin from the sun!! For obvious reasons like skin cancer and wrinkles – but it’s not just on sunny days that you need protection from the sun, there is always sunlight even through clouds that can damage the skin. I love this product particularly after exfoliating because my skin can be extra sensitive and red. However, this cream really settles and soothes the skin leaving you feeling hydrated and relaxed. Although this product is expensive, you only need to use the smallest amount so it lasts really well. Even if you don't use this product daily, it's perfect after a deep exfoliant. I would advise to wear a regular SPF on the skin daily regardless to which brand.
Looking after my skin is something I enjoy doing, however since going to Nepal last year it just hasn't been the same!!! I use to have perfect skin without even a tiny pimple, but I broke out in loads whilst away and since returning it hasn't got better. I can't say I don't know why because I know my diet has been TERRIBLE... Before I use to eat healthily but since being back (and getting a bf) I just can't stop eating lol and I'm not trying hard enough to be healthier. It's so important to avoid fatty and sugary foods in order to stay healthy and have glowing skin. Obvs eating your greens and drinking your water will help you glow but these products have been helping me get that glow lately.
