The party season is over for another year, and all the unwanted effects of rich food, wine and spirits have taken their toll on your figure. To counteract: you’ve begun a diet, you`ve signed up for dry January, and the shiny new gym membership card is in you purse. Great! But what about your skin? Doesn’t it deserve some special New Year resolution? Doesn’t it deserve some drastic action too?
Beauty emanates from within, from what goes in. Rethink your eating habits. Forget the takeaway sandwiches and lattes; leafy green veggies and fresh fruit should be your order of the day for restorative benefits such as banished spots and blemishes replaced with beautiful, healthy, glowing skin.
Now your diets sorted out let’s be sure you’re making maximum use of the gym. Paid membership alone won’t work miracles, workouts at the gym will! Mix cardio with light weights. Take some classes – group activity is so much more conducive to results.
And for now the fun bit – what products are a must to buy and apply on that perfect canvas. MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Skin Booster (12 ML), a hydrating face serum that delivers a plumped look, preps skin for makeup, and hydrates to smooth the appearance of fine lines. Rich in hyaluronic-acid and Argan oil extract, it instantly recharges and hydrates your skin. But let’s break with convention here and use it alone with a little concealer from URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer dotted over the top in areas that need it the most (under eye circles or blemished skin). It gives tired and abused skin a lighter fresher look with a lovely healthy glow. Skin is always in.
If you are a stickler for convention you can keep to your regular routine.
Many brands make little bottles of glow drops to be mixed into foundation or moisturizer to add a healthy-looking radiance. Gosh Lumi Glow is good example.
