When Summer rolls around I know I can't be the only one who likes to go barefaced and tone down on the makeup. That's made so much easier by having beautiful, clear, glowing skin. I've struggled with achieving the "Glow" but recently I've found a little routine that's working for me. 

Exfoliate - The key to glowing skin is to regularly exfoliate to help your skin regenerate skin cells and to get rid of any dead skin that may be dulling your complexion. My favourite way to really deeply clean my face is with a sensitive gel cleanser and my electric Rio sonic cleanse brush. This works by having micro pulses that work the bristles into your pores, lifting out all the dirt and impurities. This is more of an exfoliating treatment and I wouldn't recommend using this every day but the results are amazing. I tend to do this at night, apply a light toner mist to close my pores and then sleep on it. I wake up the next morning with glowing soft skin. 

Charcoal - Another way to achieve glowing skin is with a mask, my favourite is the Origins Clear Improvements mask, this mask is a scary looking one. With active charcoal it acts as a magnet to draw out oils and dirt, revealing clear and perfected skin. It's important after a mask to always follow up with a toner, I love keeping my toner in the fridge to really cool my face down and close my pores. 

Water - The ultimate skincare staple, by making sure I drink a lot of water my skin stays hydrated and it truly is the best way to maintain that lit from within glow. I find that by having a large water bottle by my side (mine holds 900ml) and by keeping it in my hand as often as I can, I find that I drink a lot more water throughout the day that way. 

Caffeine - Whilst drinking too much caffeine throughout the day can dull your skin and make you look tired, by adding fresh coffee grounds to your face wash in the morning your skin will absorb the caffeine and it's been proven to give a brighter complexion. It's also very effective on cellulite! So get scrubbing ladies! 

So there we have it, 4 easy ways to polish and perfect your skin and get your summer glow!
