Glow All Year Round: Tips, Tricks, and a DIY {ft. ALOHA}~!

Hey Guys~!

We all like having a nice, healthy glow to our skin. I used to have a problem with my skin looking dull, but through a lot of trial and error, I have developed a few tips and tricks to achieve a natural glow. Today, with help from ALOHA, I'll be sharing those tips as well as a DIY with you guys. So let's start~~!

Tip #1: Use Sunscreen Daily
This is an extra step that, if done daily, can help your skin overall. Preventing sun damage will keep the tone of your skin even. Even if it's cloudy out, sunlight can still get through to your skin. If you find it time consuming, get a foundation with at least SPF 15 if you are going outside. 


Tip #2: Drink Detox Water or Green Tea
Everyone knows that drinking water is good for your skin. I find water boring, so I do enjoy making a pitcher of detox water. I start my morning with a cup and it refreshes me. There are tons of recipes online, but one of my favorites is  Green tea also has beneficial properties for your skin.


Tip #3: Don't Forget to Exfoliate

When we have dull skin, instead of glowing skin, it's probably due to dead skin cells. The best way to remove dead skin cell is to exfoliate, and that can be done with a simple damp washcloth or a facial scrub. My favorite scrub is Ocean Salt from Lush. It's all natural and I use it once or twice a week.


Tip #4: Eat Foods With Vitamin A

Vitamin A speeds up the cell turn over process, so it's important to consume it in order to have healthy skin. Some foods that have vitamin A are carrots, kale, and cantaloupe. If you aren't a fan of any of these foods, the ALOHA website has tons of delicious looking recipes that are super easy to make.


And now onto a DIY for an illuminating primer~!! This will give your skin a natural glow.

 First select a shimmery eyeshadow or pigment that compliments your skin's undertone. If you have a warm undertone, use a gold. If you have a cold undertone, use a pink or rose gold. If you have a neutral undertone, like me, use a champagne. I'll be using this L'Oreal champagne pigment.

Next mix the eyeshadow or pigment with your favorite primer. I'll be using Maybelline Baby Skin Primer. You can mix the two in a small container, or just on the back of your hand if you are about to apply it.

Lastly, apply it under your foundation. I wore it on one side of my face to show you guys the difference it makes with my skin. My skin had a natural looking glow without being super glittery and my makeup lasted all day.

I hope you guys enjoyed hearing about my tips for healthy looking, glowing skin. If you have any tips you use to keep your skin looking great, leave them in the comments below. This is what I do and I love hearing from you guys. Thank you guys so much for reading and I'll see you at my next post.
