Having glowy skin is such a blessing. Many people believe that in order for women to have glowy skin they have to be pregnant (that’s NOT the case). Glowy skin comes from constantly keeping up with your skincare routine. There’s more to good skin care than just soap and water (although if you do that, that’s cool too). Here’s 8 products to keep you glowy all year-round.
1. Pixi Glow Tonic-$18
Pixi glow tonic is an amazing gentle chemical exfoliator from the Pixi brand. AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) exfoliators are great at removing dead skin cells without the abrasive feeling of it. Your skin glows from within and is a major staple to any skin care routine!
2. Mario Badescu Spray- $7
Mario Badescu’s facial spray comes in three amazing scents: rosewater, lavender and chamomile and green tea and cucumber. Each spray helps calm and soothes dehydrated , dull skin. Not to mention, it also makes a great makeup setting spray!
3. Philosophy Purity Pore Extractor -$45
Philosophy’s “Purity” line is all about focusing on having skin with no impurities and really working to maintain it. I am currently loving their Pore Extractor clay face mask. This mask brushes on like a white paint and has tiny grains that gently exfoliates and washes off with warm water. Your skin feels silky smooth after. I usually follow up with my favourite facial moisturizer.
4. Summer Friday Jet Lag Masks-$60
Summer Friday is a great skin care brand created by Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores, two health and wellness bloggers. Their first ever face masks the "Jet Lag" face masks focuses on having glowy skin from the moment you wake up from your slumber, despite how tired you are. Rubbing this mask into your skin in the morning really energizes your skin with a boost of vitamin C. It also doubles as a great primer!
5. Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Face Moisturizer- $20
Aveeno Positively Radiant daily face moisturizer has been my facial moisturizer for years. This is perfect for people with a combo of dull and sensitive skin. Aveeno is widely known for putting sensitive skin first with their oatmeal wash and using scent free products. Their facial moisturizer has glow minerals in it that help boost your inner glow, all while protecting your skin from harmful sun rays with SPF 15.
6. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser- $10
Neutrogena Naturals is a new line from the Neutrogena brand that focuses on making hypoallergenic face cleansers, toners, moisturizers and more. This face wash is also a built-in make-up remover and instantly melts make-up once rubbed into the skin, and smells amazing.
7. Ohii Lip Jelly -$10
“Ohii,” is a new brand exclusively to Urban Outfitters and essentially is focused on making your everyday skincare and makeup routine fun, fresh and innovative. They’re super all-inclusive as well! I’ve been a big fan of the lip jelly which comes in three flavours: rose, citrus and almond. This lip jelly has definitely saved some chapped lips!
8. Brazilian Bum Bum Cream - $45
Last but not least, Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is a holy-grail product to any person that loves skin care. This body cream leaves your skin feeling super smooth and silky without leaving such a greasy mess behind. Plus, who doesn’t love the scent of cocoa butter?
