All though we all admire the ornate makeup of high fashion runways or eccentric superstars like Gaga or Katy Perry, sometimes it’s just not practical or achievable to wear these looks on an everyday basis without appearing as overdone. Every Fashionista knows there’s nothing less desirable than a caked-on face! Occasionally is best to remember that less can sometimes be more and allows your own inner beauty to glow though, just look at this naturally beautiful Fashionista! Releasing inner radiance is possible through simple healthy eating, hydration, good lifestyle and a killer skin care routine.
The skin is our largest organ, so a Fashionista must be aware of what she is putting on her skin. Harsh, cheap, chemical-based skin products can sometimes cause more harm that good and for this reason, it may be good to opt for a softer alternative such cleansing milk or essential oils to maintain vibrant radiating skin. Remembering that it’s essential that the face has been exfoliated and cleansed to remove any dead skins cells to creating glowing skin. Regularly exfoliating will help to achieve a luminous glow, however, it’s important to note only to exfoliate only one or twice a week, as over exfoliating can lead to nasty, uninvited breakouts! Some foundations have been known to clog pores and cause unnecessary breakouts. For this reason, it’s nice to let your skin breathe by investing in a tinted moitsturiser or BB cream, containing minerals and vitamins to enhance skin by evening out skin tone. A smart move may be to purchase a base product that has a good SPF factor, as this will battle premature aging by preventing daily sun damage whilst providing coverage for your face. The best of both worlds!
Compliment this look with a naturally flushed lip; use a plum or just bitten red lip tint to create organic sensuous lips. It’s best to find a tint that suits your complexion, as this will provide the most natural effect by highlighting your natural colours, without looking outrageously made up. For fairer skin types it’s desirable to opt for peachy toned tints, whereas for warmer skin types it may be more striking to decide on a red or rich purple stain. Follow the lip stain with a nice moisturising lip balm to rehydrate and protect lips from the harsh elements whilst giving lips a luscious sheen. A sneaky tip is to apply lip balm lightly to the apples of the cheeks to create a healthy looking glow.
Diet is an integral part of maintaining radiating skin; eating healthily can be as simple as regularly eating nourishing fruits and vegetables or eating fresh fish for omega 3. Drinking lots of water is crucial to maintain a radiating glow, as it flushes toxins out from the body so be sure to take in plenty of cool filtered water. Decreasing the amounts off alcohol and caffeinated drinks will prove to be beneficial to your skin and can almost guarantee a healthier complexion. Now you're in the know, good luck getting your glow on.
