We all want to be picture ready for the holidays right? And of course for all those selfies and group photos we want our faces to look its best! Until they make an Instagram filter that gives you that holiday glow, we are going to have to try our best to make it on our own.
Cleansing your face is the best way to get started on that radiant skin look. Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub brightens your face and gets rid of any flaky skin in the process. can be used daily to continue that glowing look through the holidays!
I haven’t used a toner in forever. I recently got this toner from Korres to review and for those of us with oily, acne prone skin…it is the best! Also for those of you who may have larger pores it totally helps to get in there and get the dirt out. I’ve seen a noticeable difference while using it. Korres Cleanser Toner, Pomegranate is $20 with Prime on Amazon.
Last year, I worked at Bare Minerals for a while and fell in love with the serum. I ran out of serum and couldn’t afford to buy as it was $50 even though it works so well. I put it on at night before my moisturizer. I’m back at the store for the holidays and no lie guys….in less than a week after using this serum again, my face is back! I had a weird patch on my skin under my glasses that looked almost like a rash. I’ve been using the serum again and in less than a week the rash is practically gone. No kidding. This is serious. I was amazed before with this product, but I’m absolutely floored with it now. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve used it before but it’s definitely responding to the serum rather quickly. Plus I noticed Amazon sells the Bare Escentuals Active Cell Renewal Night Serum for $39 but not eligible for Prime. This is only once ounce though and I have to see how big it is in the store because it would be worth the money to just get the $50 bottle. It lasts about 6 months so you get a good return on investment. I’m falling in love with my face all over again I need to just stop playing around and stick to what works!
I also use Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin after the serum. This is my nightly routine, I don’t apply the serum in the morning but other than that I use the same products morning and night.
Twice a week I do a mask. My favorite mask right now is a bit expensive but the older I get I realize I need to start splurging on my face. It’s still cheaper and less invasive than botox or anything else! The GLAMGLOW Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment is around $50 as well but it works and will last you a while too considering it’s only a once or twice a week treatment. My two year old calls me a monster and asks me if my face is ok when he sees me wearing the mask but it really works!
There you have it! Five steps for radiant skin whether it’s through the holidays or year round. These are all products I personally use and reuse! Let me know what you think if you ever try one or all of these!
I literally haven’t written one word in almost a month! Between the holidays and working a second job I can barely get to a laptop to put my thoughts down. I’ve written at least ten blog posts in my head though. Does it count? You keeping up this holiday season? I’m sure as hell trying!
