Glowing Skin Essentials

Working on keeping your skin glowing more now than ever? Wanting to use less makeup to get it? I am.  Wearing a mask (a must!) is wreaking havoc on my skin, and I want to be sure that I am using products that keep it healthy and glowing. Keeping my beauty routine every morning has given me the opportunity to have some sort of routine that keeps my skin in check. The best part is keeping my glowing skin routine simple without using foundation.

In place of foundation, I’ve been using my favorite CC serum that gives me a serious glow and a bit of coverage. On other days, I’ll add a tinted moisturizer for a bit more coverage when I might have a hyperpigmentation spot or two.

As someone with combination skin (normal/dry), I find that products that have some form of hyaluronic acid is very useful to keep the skin hydrated with the moisturizing effects of that ingredient. It’s also helpful to use cream products over powered products, when possible, to keep the skin dewy and looking fresh.

When I do use powder, I always finish with a face mist that provides extra hydration and lets all the products settle into a glowing finish. Olay’s face mist is my current favorite to set my face without giving me a matte finish.

    How seriously lucky to be able to say that CC Cream is only needed on days where there’s a hyperpigmentation spot or two haha. I have horrible acne and hyperpigmentation, along with a plethora of other issues because I have a gut disease so my skin never heals. A full face is what I reach for every day, and I wish it wasn’t most of the time. But I do like learning other individuals’ routines, so this was neat!

    I actually need to get back into using a tinted moisturizer. I don’t wear foundation much, but tinted cream would be the perfect solution!
