5 Ways to Achieve a Stunning Winter Glow

Winter can cause havoc on our skin so we may need to work a little harder to put the zest back into our complexion. Radiate luminosity by giving the following steps a try. These 5 ways to achieve a stunning winter glow will give you a gorgeous look that you’ll want to show off during the festive season.

1. Chemical exfoliation

Chemical exfoliators may sound scary but they’re actually a fairly gentle way to improve radiance. Unless you have extremely sensitive skin, using a chemical exfoliator in your skincare routine will rapidly boost the appearance of your skin. What should you use? Try glycolic acid or lactic acid before your moisturiser. These acids help to remove dead skin cells that cause dullness, smooth your skin and even out your skin tone.

2. Use a face oil

A facial oil is a great way to achieve a winter glow. All skin types can effectively use a face oil – it will prevent dehydration, soften and smooth your complexion.

3. Faux tan

Applying faux tan during the colder months will provide a beautifully bronzed glow. Who needs a beach when you can apply a tanning lotion? Faux tan also helps to make you look healthier, which is something you may be lacking in the ill-ridden winter months.

4. Apply a liquid highlighter

A great way to fake a winter glow is to apply a little highlighter to your face. A liquid highlighter can be mixed with your highlighter or you can apply to certain points of your face, such as the top of your cheekbones, nose, chin and under your brows.

5. Have a professional treatment

A professional treatment like SkinBase microdermabrasion is a highly effective way to give an instant glow. By eliminating dead skin cells, treating fine lines and wrinkles as well as removing acne scarring and lifting pigmentation, you skin will appear rejuvenated and flawless.
