As I belong to the dry skin team, I used to believe that glowing skin was a result from using highlighters and dewy foundations, I then discovered that a healthy nourished skin glows 24/7 without makeup.
I am a full force into achieving beauty by natural methods so, I jumped on the dewy skin trend wagon determined to acquire a natural glow.
On this post, I will share with you all the steps I took to achieve visible results. And as always, some before and after pictures!
Get products with hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, retinol and exfoliate twice a week with acid. I also use sunscreen religiously, even if I am staying home the entire day. If sunscreen is a pain for you, I bet you are using the wrong one. I recommend the internet favourite Purito Suncscreen, it is light and does not leave a white cast.
Change of diet
As mentioned on my post Living with Bloating I have been on a gluten free / lactose free diet for almost a year now. I am not saying you have to abandon gluten and lactose (both are pretty hard to quit) but changing what I ate definitely had huge results on my skin. I even got rid of my rosacea!

I was a Coca Cola addicted woman and I never, I repeat, NEVER drank water on a daily basis. I started taking my water intake seriously when my gut problems started. As soon as I did, I could feel a huge difference.
Now I drink 2+ litres a day. Something that helped me a lot is buying these water bottles with time markers. I used to sharpie the times myself on a generic bottle but it does get erased so, Amazon came to the rescue.
I am not a fan of vitamins and suplements but I’ve always struggle with weak nails. As soon as I started with Biotin gummies my nails, skin and hair improved. These Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails supplement are so delicious that make taking them easy to remember. I always eat them on my afternoon snack time.
It’s important that you know, achieving a glowy skin takes time. It took me about 6 months to start seeing results and it has improved over time because I follow these tips consistently.
