By now you've probably noticed the beauty trend dominating Pinterest and Instagram. Your cheat sheet to achieving that dewy, radiant skin all year long without much makeup is a highlighter that complements your skin tone and is becoming a beauty staple essential as blush of eyeliner. 


How to choose the best highlighter for your skin tone... 

Fair skin tones 

For those with a light to pale complexion, it's best to opt for highlighters with a pearlescent gloss. The light pigments add enough radiance to your skin tone without washing you out. Stay away from shades that are too warm or too dark to avoid a heavy faux look. 

Medium skin tones 

If you want to wake up your skin opt for a highlighter with peach or gold undertones. This slight hint of colour is perfect for achieving a very natural sun-kissed glow. Add a bronze or gold eyeshadow and a nude lip to instantly look like a summer goddess. 

Dark skin tones 

For those with a darker skin colour go for a rich variation of rose gold or bronze. Make sure to opt for make up options that pack in lots of pigment and stay away from opalescent hues that might make the skin look grey. Mix your highlighter with your foundation to give an all over summer glow and apply a vibrant red lip for a show-stopping look.

It's always a good time to start taking care of our skin. A comprehensive beauty routine can allow us to retain a youthful glowing skin for much longer. So what does that routine comprise of, you ask? Don't worry we have you covered! Read on for all the essentials you'll need.


Minimise those Pores 

The older we get the more expanded our pores likely to stay. Try a cleanser with salicylic acid that breaks down the oil in the pores. 

Try the Strip
 

In order to deflate and clean pores, you'll need some strips 

SPF 

Ageing skin's best friend is a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least an SPF 30. Slather a great portion of SPF on your face and body. 

Beauty Sleep

According to research if you sleep at least 15 minutes earlier you're bound to shed a few lines off your eyes. The dark circles will diminish significantly if you add a few more minutes to your sleep. Extra tip: log off and avoid exercise before going to bed. 

Slather on the Antioxidants 

Try products containing caffeine, green tea, pomegranate, or Coenzyme Q10 for the best results! 

Retinol Wonder 

Retinol really does wonders for the fine lines but don't overdo it as it can increase sun sensitivity making you itch possibly. Instead, dab small portions or dilute them with plain moisturiser.

Short of questing to find the Fountain of Youth there's not much in the way of turning back time for smooth, baby soft skin. Eating clean and sweat sessions are only part of what'll keep us looking like Baba Yaga. However, incorporating the right serum for your primary skin concern into your daily routine can be a total game changer...

Anti-Ageing & Firming: Whether it's a reduction in fine lines, plumpness, firmer skin or all three you're after, nothing beats a serum packing potent hydrating and botanical properties. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is an intensive 99% natural remedy while Nuxe Nuxuriance addresses skin weakened by hormonal fluctuations. 

Oily & Acne Prone Skin: Those plagued with oily and acne prone skin with large pores will be tired of reading about not stripping the face if its natural oils. There is the constant fear of not wanting to agitate the skin further so when choosing a serum, pick one that's nourishing as well as antibacterial. If your skin is also extremely reactive, La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+ is also paraben free and non-comedogenic.

Dry & Sensitive Skin: Suffer from hyper sensitive skin that's dry to the point of crusty or flaky? Opt for French pharmaceutical brand Bioderma's Hydrabio Serum Moisturising Concentrate to stimulate the skin's natural water channels and give an instant hydration effect. Additionally, Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum is known for its deep hydration properties thanks to its thermal water composition. 

Redness & Dark Circles: Overpower your face's ability to reveal what you've been up to the night/s before - whether its partying or pigging out - and choose Darphin Dark Circles Relief and De-Puffing eye serum and/or Stila One Step Correct!
