5 Tips for Glowing Skin

It cannot be said enough, that skincare is the most important part of your beauty routine. It’s true. You can have tons of quality makeup products, but if you don’t invest in a solid skincare routine, you won’t ever achieve flawless results. I invest my time in a simple, daily routine and follow 5 basic steps that make a huge impact.

{ one } HYDRATE. Drink plenty of water. Hydrated skin results from drinking enough water.

[ two ] SLEEP. Easier said than done, but get as close to 8 hours a night as possible.

{ three } PROTECT. Harmful UVA/UVB rays, don’t let the sun damage your skin. Protect it from burns & future wrinkles with a quality, high SPF sunscreen.

[ four ] CONSISTENCY. Wash your face both morning AND night. In the morning to refresh your skin and prepare it for makeup and at night to clean off makeup and impurities.

{ five } ROUTINE. Routine, routine, routine. CREATE ONE and stick to it! You don’t have to invest your money on a fancy skincare routine but you do need to invest your time! This alone will make all the difference. Find a routine that works best for you and continuously stick to it!

I’ve added a few new products to my daily skincare routine and am loving the results!!


HydroPeptide / Purifying Mask & Redefining Serum – Oh. My. I don’t even know where to start. I LOVE the results I’ve seen over the past month of using these. I use the mask 3 times a week before bed and the serum every single night. These two are targeted towards “acne/excess oil” skin types. The Redefining Serum is an ultra sheer clearing treatment that promotes a healthy, clear complexion while improving skin tone and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The unique formula contains 6 peptides (clearing, retinoic like, radiance, anti-redness, protective, and preservative) resulting in clear, youthful-looking skin. Seabuckthorn berry extract is rich in Vitamin A + C and Omegas to reduce acne-induced imbalances and heal, soften & strengthen the skin. I’m obsessed with this serum! Only a tiny pea-sized amount is needed each use after cleansing & toning. The Purifying Mask contains mineral-rich clays and kaolin to draw out toxins and impurities while absorbing excess oil and prevent clogged pores. Enzyme & coenzyme exfoliate and promote cell regeneration. NO parabens, phthalate or sulfates. Just fast, amazing results. I can’t say enough good things about HydroPeptide and the results it has given me. A bit of a steep price tag but worth it because my skin has not looked this good in YEARS! http://www.hydropeptide.com


Vincent Longo / Ultra Light Tinted Moisturizer + Creme Concealer (shade #4) – This is my #1 go-to makeup product for the summer & warmer months. I liberally apply it to my face using a damp beauty blender to achieve a dewy, soft, smooth appearance perfect for these high summer temperatures. The creme concealer is actually right in the cap making this a 2-in-1 product that is convenient to take along with you anywhere. It is enhanced with Mimosa (plumps skin) and Jojoba & Sunflower (replenishes dry skin). What I love most about it: blends effortlessly, superior moisturizer promoting a hydrated glow, lightweight (medium/sheer coverage, but covers well) and lasts hours on skin even in hot temperatures. I have been using this and this ALONE after my daily skincare routine to achieve a flawless finish every single day that looks good & I can feel confident about. http://www.vincentlongo.com
