3 Secrets To Glowing Skin

Hello, beauty! It's time to get your glow on, because glowing skin is always in. Have you bought into this myth that your skin is the result of what you put on it? All the lotions and potions in the world will not transform your skin. 

WHY?

Glowing Skin Comes From Within. 

If you've signed up for my email newsletters, you've already received my 5 Nutrition Tips to Glowing Skin. If you haven't, you're going to want to pick that up at the bottom of this post. 

In regards to diet, it is essential to stay hydrated! Drinking an adequate amount of water each day is essential for plump, glowing skin. Another huge piece of the skin puzzle is to avoid dairy. There is no other sure fire way of getting breakouts and acne than a dairy binge!

It is also essential to detoxify. If you can't get the toxins out of your body, they will come out in your skin. There is no where else for them to go. The best way to do this nutritionally is to eat a plant based diet. I'm talking veggies at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The fiber from all the fabulous vegetables and fruits that you are eating will help escort those toxins right out of your system. 

In last place comes finding skin care products that work well for your skin. My current favorite skin care routine is:

Aleavia Cleanse 2x/day

Ko & Humble Passion Fruit Seed Oil 2x/day

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive 2x/week

Acure Brightening Scrub 1x/week 

Spring Essentials

Spring has finally sprung! I love nothing more than pairing pastels in the spring, but that's not all I feel are essentials for the season.

1. Pink Lipstick. There's nothing like a pop of pink for spring. Top Pick: Honest Beauty Peony Kiss.

2. Glowing Skin. Let's be real, glowing skin is never out of season! From a cream blush, to a serious highlight and a glowing bronzer, I've got you covered.  Top Picks: W3LL People Dusty Rose Universalist Stick, Silk Naturals Limoncello Highlight, Teri Miyahira Beauty Bronzer. 

3. Nude Nails. I gravitate towards No Miss Daytona Sand each spring.

4. Flats, galore! If you live in a cold climate like I do, I'm guessing your flats have also been in hibernation all winter. My favorites are a great pair of Van's metallic slip ons and a chic pointy toe pair from Target. 

5. Switch up your scents. While I love my coconut body scrub from 100% Pure for winter because it's deep and rich, I tend to prefer a lighter scent for spring and summer. Top Picks: Lime Essential Oil (for diffusing), 100% Pure Blood Orange Body Lotion.
