Don’t you feel confident when your face is radiant and glowing? You should! You are most gorgeous when your skin glows with that fresh, natural beauty that seems to radiate from within.
With a glowing, lustrous skin you don’t even have to slather your face with all that goo to look fabulous.
But you don’t achieve that radiant look with magic nor does it come from your genes. There are tricks to keep your face glowing, so let me share them with you.
You want to know my best kept trick to keep your face glowing? Wear a smile! Put on a happy face! It’s free and I guarantee you, a beautiful smile will give your face an ethereal glow no amount of makeup will ever achieve.
A smile also makes you look healthier and more gorgeous than having the right weight or with makeup on, and this is scientifically proven.
According to a research, people wearing a genuine smile (the operative word is genuine) rather than merely looking cheerful or with a blank look on their face, are more likely to be seen as glowing and healthy.
One more of my 5 tricks to keep your face glowing is sleep, get plenty of sleep, even more than the prescribed 8 hours! Sleep is the closest thing you can get to the fountain of youth. It has a restorative effect not only on your skin but on your whole body. Your body recovers and is rejuvenated while you are having a shuteye so you wake up refreshed and ready to take on the world again.
Sleep gives you a glowing face or complexion. While you sleep, your blood flow to the skin increases, so that you wake up with a healthy glow. Sleep-deprivation can make the skin look lifeless, drab and dull.
Other advantages of a good night sleep:
Exfoliation is the foundation of smooth, clear glowing skin! Without it all the other tricks I will share with you are useless. But, what does exfoliation do?
The best way to exfoliate to give you a glowing skin is chemical exfoliation using face acids. Glycolic acid is a great starter acid. It’s mild yet has proven anti-aging features. In comparison to other acids, glycolic contains the tiniest molecules that allows it to permeate the skin with ease to produce dramatic results.
Apply a soothing, gentle toner to your face to unclog pores. You need this trick as extra cleansing to keep your face glowing especially after wearing sunscreen or makeup.
Our skin is acidic by nature. As a general rule, it has a pH balance between 5 or 6 on a scale of 0-14. But the balance can go bonkers after washing your face with soap because of its alkaline contents.This is why you need a toner that will help you restore the balance. Otherwise, your skin will need extra work to get back to its normal level.
Other advantages of a toner are;
Moisturizing your skin in the morning before putting on your makeup does not only make you feel great but it can help keep your skin clear, smooth, and wrinkle-free in the future. Moisturizers with natural oils such as almond and rosemary are your insurance against dry skin and wrinkles. But again, a moisturizer with SPF 15 will prevent untimely aging due to sun exposure.
One sure trick to keep your face glowing all the day long is to spray a mist moisturizer over or under your makeup like the repairative moisturizer from Tata Harper.
It works like magic! Your skin will have that dewy look all day. You need not even retouch your makeup, just spray it on.

Two of my 5 tricks to keep your face glowing are free, you don’t need to spend a single cent! But, of course we also need a little help from products since there is more than enough grime, smoke, dust and other pollutants in the air that wreak havoc on our skin.
