Ready For Your Close Up? How to Get an Insta-Worthy Glow
Just how do all our favourite Instagram stars achieve that fresh, dewy, out-of-this-world glow? Filters? We’re sure that plenty do rely on filters to hide imperfections, but gorgeously glowing skin isn’t as hard to achieve as it may seem. In fact, there are actually many ways to give your skin a quick, easy boost.
Let’s look at why skin appears dull, and the most effective methods to bring back your natural glow…
- Concern: Dry Skin
When skin is dehydrated, it can easily begin to peel, resulting in a rough surface that looks and feels dry and flaky, rather than soft, supple, and fresh. Moisturising regularly can help to keep the skin more hydrated, although very dry skin may benefit from a Pro Hydro facial which specifically aims to rehydrate.
- Concern: Tired-Looking Skin
A buildup of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin can make the skin look a little tired, and not particularly glowy. Mild exfoliation works excellently for getting rid of this build up, and there are many options available, including exfoliating scrubs, chemical skin peels, and advanced microdermabrasion.
- Concern: Uneven Skin Tone
An uneven skin tone can make the skin appear dull, even if it’s otherwise very healthy. Dark circles underneath the eye and hyperpigmentation from acne are the biggest causes. While at-home methods don’t often work, there are treatments that can be very effective, such as tear trough correction therapy.
- Concern: All-Round Dullness
Sometimes, skin can just generally look and feel a little dull. What you need here is a powerful nutrient boost to perk it up. Vitamin C is great for making skin look healthier, while the antioxidant glutathione can banish any free radicals that are getting you down. You’ll find both in our IV brightening drips.
More Ways to Glow
The solutions we’ve mentioned above are all great for treating the root causes of dull and tired skin, but even the best canvas can look less-than-perfect if the artist doesn’t know what they’re doing! Choose your skincare, your cosmetics, and your application techniques carefully to really enhance that just-out-of-the-shower dewy look. Use cosmetics that provide a dewy finish, rather than matte, and try using a damp beauty sponge to blend primer, concealer, and foundation, rather than your fingers.
