Get a Brighter Complexion in 2 Minutes Flat
Tired of waking up with dull and tired-looking skin? The sun, pollution, stress, and other factors often cause the skin to lose its glow and your complexion lacks the shine it once had. Add these simple steps to your daily routine to brighten up your skin in no time.
1. Clean Your Face
Use a makeup remover to take off all your makeup and rid your skin of any leftover impurities from the previous night. Micellar waters are great for removing makeup without drying out your skin. Use a gentle face scrub meant for your skin type to remove dead skin cells that often leave your skin looking dull. Scrubbing your face removes all built-up toxins from your skin and allows your skin to breathe.
2. Hydrate Your Skin
Use a hydrating moisturiser to plump your skin and provide a boost of moisture. The new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence contains brightening active ingredients like Salicylic acid and Centella Asiatica that penetrate up to 10 layers deep into your skin for a hydrated, youthful and radiant look. The salicylic acid in the Micro-Essence also accelerates skin renewal and mildly exfoliates to refine pores and skin texture. For a midday pick-me-up, use a face mist to soothe and instantly freshen up your skin.
3. Try Facial Massages
Gently massage your eye contours, working from the inner to outer corners of the eye to de-puff your under-eye area and look more awake. Under-eye creams that come in tubes with a metal-tip applicator are perfect for such massages as the cool metal-tip rejuvenates your eye contours, providing additional freshness. A facial massage, on the other hand, boosts blood circulation and imparts a healthy glow to your skin. Gently massage and pat your skin to relax the face muscles and brighten your complexion. Be sure to be gentle and avoid over-stretching your epidermis.
4. Top It Off with The Right Makeup
Tinted and lightweight BB creams are perfect for adding coverage while still looking natural. Use a light pink blush on the apples of your cheeks to give it the naturally flushed look. Apply highlighters and illuminators to the bridge of your nose, top of your cheekbones, forehead, and chin to reflect light and give you an instant glow. Set your makeup with a dewy setting spray, it will not only make your makeup last all day long but will also keep you looking radiant and fresh-faced.
By taking care of your skin and using the right skincare and beauty products, you can add a healthy glow to your skin and instantly brighten up your complexion. Follow these simple tips and kiss goodbye to dull, lacklustre skin.
