Tired? Yep, us too.

Our mission for a perfectly dewy, glowing complexion can sometimes feel endless – especially when the weather just CANNOT make its mind up, and we’re constantly exposing our skin to all sorts of conditions. Dull, tired skin can make us feel, well... a bit dull and tired, so it’s important to know how to kick the life back into your skin, even when you’re feeling exhausted. We've got the low-down on how: 

Cleanse with oil

Keeping skin fresh by washing it every day is extremely important. Use a gentle oil-based cleanser to help your skin’s hydration levels (even if your skin’s oily – oil dissolves oil, remember!). It’ll melt off even the most stubborn of mascaras, too. Bonus!

Exfoliate

Exfoliation is key if you want to maintain a glowy complexion, as it scrubs away any dead cells on your skin's surface which may cause your skin to look drab. Dead skin has a hard time reflecting light, which means a freshly exfoliated base will appear brighter and more radiant. Opt for a nightly scrub that’ll deeply exfoliate and cleanse at the same time…

Keep skin hydrated

Keeping your skin’s moisture locked in is vital for an all-year-round glow. On top of drinking lots of water, a moisturiser can help to keep dryness and dullness at bay. Opt for an ultra-hydrating moisturiser in the morning and evening.

Brighten up

Sometimes, as much as you exfoliate and moisturize, skin still looks a little lacklustre. Hmph. But rest assured, a brightening mask is almost always certain to sort you out. Go for a treatment with brightening ingredients to boost your skin’s radiance.

Fake it

When all else fails – fake it! With the unreliable weather meaning we’re not always guaranteed a natural healthy glow, we know we can always rely on our trusty fake tans and highlighters. Using a gradual face tan will slowly build up a streak-free faux glow, topped off with a touch of blusher and highlighter to wake your complexion up. Perfect!
