Monday Maven: Glamourous Glow

Although the glowing looks in the hottest fashion shows are being achieved by rose like blushes and twinkling eye shadows,  true glowing skin starts within.






Achieve a natural glow by:

1. Trying to make sure your hands are clean before touching your face.
Our hands touch so many things on a daily basis and can pick up many germs.  If you are constantly touching your face without washing your hands you are transferring dirt and germs to your face that could cause break outs.

2. Protecting your skin by wearing sunscreen.

Nature can be damaging to our skin, especially the sun.  Protect your skin against sunscreen by wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or 30.

3. Cleansing your skin before and after wearing make up.

Make up and dirt can clog your pores.  Make sure you find a gentle cleanser that works for your skin type.  Start by washing your skin with warm/hot water, this will allow your pores to open up.  Finish by rinsing with cold water to close your clean pores.

4.  Adopting a healthy diet

A diet that is good for healthy glowing skin needs important vitamins including C, A, B, and E.  Your diet should also be high in fiber and low in fats and carbohydrates. Oh, and don't forget you need lots of H2O.

5. Saying no to stress.

Stress is not good for your health or your skin.  Stress has been known to cause breakouts serious breakouts and wreck havoc on skin.  Do things to keep your stress down like yoga, meditation, or even a Zumba class!








How do you keep your skin healthy and glowing?

  1. This is great! I don't do enough skin care. Luckily, my skin is pretty good and I don't break out often but as I get older, I fear my luck will run out. My BF says noxema is still really good...do you agree?

    1. Me either, but I am working on it and I'm definitely seeing a difference in my skin. I don't use Noxema because my skin is kind of sensitive to it. I do have a cousin who uses it however, and it really works for her!

  3. Nice post! I love the tips. Some of us do know them and just forget to apply them (I'm talking about me LOL)... My skin is very sensitive and it's breaking now that it's Spring. It seems that from season to season I get a different reaction on it.

    1. Thank you Fey! I live in the South so the reactions from my skin change from time to time to. I just try to find ways to adjust! It does take commitment though lol.

  4. Great advice! Some more ways is to drink lots and lots of water and to take daily vitamins. I also use great cleansers. When I splurge I like to use Sothys but on my normal days I use Aveeno. It keeps my face radiant, clear, and smooth. : )
