Nothing ruins the perfect snapshot like dull, lackluster skin. To keep you looking fab and radiant in these unavoidable photos, here are some tips to give your skin a gorgeous glow—and these don’t include filters.
1. Power up your water.
Drinking lots of water helps your body flush out the bad stuff that can cause dullness, acne, and blemishes. You know that you’re supposed to drink at least eight glasses of water a day, but why not try infusing your water with lemon or cucumber. This will not only hydrate your body but will also give you a dose of vitamins and minerals to help boost your skin’s glow. If your skin is in need of extra hydration you can't just get from chugging water, add an H2O-based moisturizer to your routine, like Instant's Hydra Aloe Gel. It can help hydrate and refresh your skin without that sticky-feel. You’ll look flawless in all your Instagram snaps—#nofilter guaranteed—in no time.
2. Get your Zzzs in
Make sure to get some rest much-needed rest in between all the parties and commitments. Sleep is one of the most crucial factors of radiant skin—not getting enough can worsen acne and cause puffy eye bags and undereye circles. So if you want your best #iwokeuplikethis photos, then get a full seven to eight hours every night. Make your beauty sleep even more effective by using a face mask before nodding off, like Instant's Argan Glow Beautox Facial Mask. It will help hydrate and your skin so you'll wake up looking fresh and glowy.
3. Exfoliate your skin.
One of the best ways to brighten your skin by exfoliating. A good face scrubbing once or twice a week helps slough off dead skin cells and brings your complexion to life. Exfoliating also smoothens and clears up the skin so it better reflects light.
4. Lighten up
You can also turn to makeup to add a touch of radiance to your face. For a winning glow, use a light base like Instant's All In One Perfect CC Cream. The beige-colored cream can help blur imperfections and minimize the look of pores while adding luminosity to your skin.
5. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
To get a glowing complexion, it’s important to keep your skin hydrated. Moisturizing will help your skin retain water and keep it looking plump and supple. Stay clear of harsh cleansers that strip your skin of its natural oils. Instead, go for a mild, nourishing cleanser like Instant Argan Soap instead. This soap is made with natural Moroccan argan oil, a vitamin-rich emollient that leaves rough and dry skin completely moisturized.
Follow this up by using Instant Argan Oil to moisturize your skin instead of a heavy cream. This absorbent face oil leaves the skin soft and nourished and improves its elasticity. Now you can look gorgeous and glowing both IRL and in photos.
