Are you all for glossy, dewy, glowy skin? Kinda like you naturally get after a relaxing trip to the tropics? Is your skin craving a vacation it hasn't been on due to the pandemic? While you still may not be able to travel to the beaches for the next few months, here are some quick tricks to give your skin the vacay vibes it needs. I am talking about faking the perfect post-vacation glow, of course! We can always count on some sheen to cheer us up.
Time to glow, baby, glow!
It is important to start with the basics. If you wish to get that perfect summer vacation look, then start with scrubbing the dead skin off your face. You can use a store-bought scrub or a DIY scrub made from lemon juice and sugar. All you need to do is cleanse your face, gently scrub in small circular motions and wash it off with lukewarm water after 10-15 mins. The exfoliation will leave your skin healthy and happy.
This step is particularly for those who have dry and dehydrated skin. You must use a suitable moisturiser in your skincare regimen. Always remember that the key to glowing skin is first making it look healthy. A moisturiser not only sets the right dewy base for the desired look but also deeply nourishes your skin. However, if you have oily skin, you can skip this step and apply a matte sunscreen instead.
An illuminator-induced foundation will set the base to make your skin shine like never before. It will not only hydrate your skin but add the right amount of sheen without having to put any additional layers of makeup. Do keep your skin tone and skin type in mind before picking a foundation.
Here comes the main ingredient for glossy, shimmery, shining skin. A highlighter will give you an instant glow by illuminating different sections of your face within seconds. It comes in different formulations such as gel, liquid, and powder. I'd suggest you first apply a liquid illuminator and then set it using a powdered highlighter. Use a fan brush to effortlessly apply it to the desired parts of your face for that perfect 'vacay glow'. And, if you want a slightly tanned look, go for a tinted highlighter in a shade above that of your natural skin.
Use a setting spray or a face mist for some final touches. It will not only let your makeup last longer but also give you a dewy look, perfectly complementing the post vacay glow theme. They are a summer must-haves, ladies!
While you are at it, don't forget the rest of your body. The Iridescent Brightening Body Lotion by MyGlamm is the lightweight solution that melts easily into your skin, giving you a gorgeous iridescent glow. What's better than a body lotion that makes you glow that extra mile, eh!
Now for the final step. No vacation is complete without a tan, right? So, finish off your fake vacay look by spraying some tanning mist on your body for that tan-on-tan look! (Geddit?)
Who needs a vacation in the pandemic now? Well, not your face! Now that you know the trick, ace the sun-kissed look right at home.
