What's the secret to achieving glowing skin without makeup?

It might surprise you to know that there isn't one miracle product or even a set of product that can fulfill such a promise. The secret really lies in your skincare routine.

How you use your products is more important than what you use. Here's are some pro tips on how to achieve a more glowy complexion. ✨

Choosing The Right Cleanser

When choosing your cleanser, you must pay attention to your skin's needs.

For example: if you notice that your skin feels dry or tight after cleansing, you can be pretty sure that the cleanser you're using is stripping some of the natural oils from your skin.

Consider switching to something gentler like an oil based creamy or milky cleanser instead. On the other hand, if your skin feels a bit grimy or even a little oily after cleansing, you might want to reach for a cleanser that can break up some of the excess oil like a foaming or medicated cleanser.

PRO TIP: Your skin may change from day to day, so it's a good idea to have a few different cleansers on hand and rotate them as needed.

Layering Your Products

If you want to achieve glowing skin you have to get comfortable with doing a multi-step routine both morning and night.

Why?

Your skin has many layers and the secret to dewy, plump skin is to hydrate each layer individually. You want to start from the bottom and work your way up. The formula weight and molecular size of your skincare products will make a big difference here. The smaller the weight and/or molecule size, the further those molecules will penetrate and reach the deeper layers of your skin.

Another thing to keep in mind is to use products suited for your skin. If you're oily or prone to congestion, choose water based formulas and avoid heavy oils. Even lighter products when layered and used together will produce a healthy glow.

On the other hand, dry skin will surely benefit from richer formulas especially a more nourishing moisturizer and sunscreen.

How To Layer Your Products

The easiest way to layer your products is to go from thinnest to thickest, starting with watery formulas first, like toners and essences, then serum, moisturizer and finally sunscreen.

There are some exceptions to this, but if you follow these basic principles you'll be on your way to a more glowy complexion.
