Beautiful, Glowing Skin in 4 Steps

Beautiful, Glowing Skin in 4 Steps

How to get gorgeous and glowing skin, even when the elements are working against you.

The thermometer may read close to zero, but your complexion can look fresh, dewy and peachy thanks to a few insider tricks. Here are our tried and true secrets for looking bright eyed and bushy tailed.

1. Exfoliate
We've said it a million times, and we'll keep repeating it until the cows come home. Beautiful skin is well-exfoliated skin. By giving your complexion the best possible base and getting rid of dry, dull, flaky buildup, you're allowing active ingredients from products to penetrate your skin (and work better) while revealing the beautiful, fresh new skin underneath. Whether you use a chemical mask or peel, a manual scrub, or simply a good ol' washcloth, regular exfoliation several times per week will procure almost instant glam results.

2. Moisturize
Doesn't it seem obvious that moisturizing your skin in the winter is critical? If you have dry skin, it might be, but you gals with normal to oily complexions need to hydrate, too. It's important to choose the right delivery system for your skin's unique needs: if you're oily or acne-prone, try a sleek-but-effective serum that sinks in quickly and won't cause breakouts. Aim to moisturize twice daily, and apply it right (this is key). Pat in your moisturizer immediately after washing your face for a proper application.

3. Hydrate
There's a reason dermatologists (and red carpet ready celebs) are always touting the benefits of prodigious amounts of water. Your skin is your body's biggest organ, so load up on the H2O; it'll do wonders for your complexion! If you're dehydrated, your skin will show it from the inside out, resulting in a sallow, lifeless complexion. Hydrated skin is plump, glowy, happy skin.

4. Glow
A little makeup assistance — achieved with the lightest hand and savviest eye — will fool everybody into thinking you've gotten plenty of beauty sleep. Dot a luminizing balm across your temples, cheekbones and on your browbone. The subtle shimmer will catch the light, making you look positively radiant.
