Simple, easy, and quick fixes to make you stunning and to get you glowing!
To prevent your skin from losing its luster, enliven yourself and boost & recharge your skin. It’s essential to use a slightly rich face cream, or a facial oil to restore moisture and fortify a parched, dry, and cold-busted complexion instantly with long-lasting hydration.
Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica is that special powerhouse cream to get you through the cold, Wintery months! It delivers energy to skin allowing cellular activity to reawaken.
It simultaneously protects skin from future damage as the skin transforms to a more youthful beginning – reduced lines and wrinkles, improved firmness, and a dramatic restoration of hydration.
This skin blockbuster contains Rosa Arctica (Haberlea rhodopensis) aka regeneration flower, which is known to survive up to 31 months in a dry-out cycle, by falling into anabiosis. When proper moisture conditions are restored, it returns to life within hours and is able to bloom fully again. On skin, it works to jolt cellular vitality, stimulating skin’s own collagen and elastin production.
This rich, dense formula provides instant hydration and can be used day and night. It is also empowered with fantastic lipids like squalane, cocoa and shea butters, and essential fatty acids such as oleic, stearic and palmatic acid to help replenish skin’s barrier.
Emulsify the cream by rubbing it between your fingers to liquefy it and increase its spreadability and absorption capabilities. It truly lasts all day, locks in moisture, and will make your skin feel moist, firmer, and rejuvenated.
ILLUMINATOR / LUMINIZER
The magic drops for me are using a luminizer or a facial oil, it’s a great way to light the skin up and emphasize glowing skin!
Illuminators and luminizers are sheer, light-reflecting liquids that enhance your skin with a dewy, incandescent, and sometimes shimmering appearance. It can be infused into your moisturizer or foundation, or used alone.
Applying a facial oil to the skin helps impart the glow that everyone wants—the kind that’s a healthy shine, dewy and not greasy.
Universally known as the good oil, the Flor de Aceite (the more premier & purest form of olive oil) in DHC Virgin Olive Oil is my secret finish in skincare. I’ve been using it for almost 13 years and I only use a drop of the olive oil and pat on my skin to capture the light and give me that go-to glow.
It’s simply the best and effortlessly melts into all complexions including oily without leaving any greasy residue creating luminous, light-reflecting skin. You can also add a drop to your moisturizer for some added oomph to lock in moisture and guard against moisture loss. It’s also great for repairing and healing stressed skin.
Compared to others face oils on the market at almost the double the price, DHC Olive Virgin Oil is certified organic and great quality and good value at $39 for 1 fl. oz, just remember a drop goes a long way!
To illuminate your face, or to highlight your cheek or brow bones, use just a smidgen of Lorac Oil-Free Luminizer in Pearl or Gold.
This 100% oil-free luminizer adds an incandescent sheen to brighten the face, providing an instant pick-me-up and immediate glow. Infused with skin beneficial ingredients like chamomile, comfrey, and aloe to calm, soothe, and hydrate the complexion.
L2 (Gold) makes medium and dark skin tones glow without looking too slick, or glaring, while L1 (Pearl) is a highlighting liquid for fair skin.
Wear it alone very sparingly, but I recommend to mix just a tiny drop with your moisturizer (or foundation) for some real, healthy-looking radiance & brightness.
