HOW TO FEEL CONFIDENT WITHOUT WEARING MAKEUP

Do you ever wonder what the secret to beautiful, radiant skin without an ounce of highlighter on is? Skincare as makeup is becoming a game-changer in the beauty industry. While we may not be ready to completely stop putting on makeup, we are finding ways to feel confident without it. So how do we achieve luminous skin, no makeup required? Let me walk you through it.

1. Diet + Hydration

When it comes to that beauty within look, there is only so much highlighter and topicals can accomplish. Good skincare products are like an aid for a good complexion; however, gorgeous skin starts from the inside out. So basically, we are what we eat. There is a ton of research that states the food you eat can affect your complexion. Food is digested, then enters your bloodstream, which then circulates to your skin. Here are a few complexions boosting foods to add to your grocery list: Avocados! They are high in healthy fat which benefits the skin by keeping it moisturized and helps reduces the appearance of fine lines. They also have Vitamin C which helps protect the skin from oxidative stress, as well as Vitamin E that helps create collagen. Blueberries have antioxidants in that help fight off the skin’s worst enemy: free radicals. Free radicals are known to damage skin cells and collagen, which can speed up the skin’s aging process. Carrots have beta carotene in them which helps protect your skin from UV rays and improves skin appearance. Carrots also are full of vitamins and nutrients to help the elasticity and strength of the skin. The bottom line is, what we consume can be essential to having healthy skin.

2. Routine Skincare

Wouldn’t be nice to wake up every morning with flawless-looking skin? You could minimize your time in the morning by cutting down a 10-step makeup routine. While makeup can be a fun way of expressing yourself, as well as highlighting features, it is not something we have to rely on to feel confident in our skin. It is possible to ditch your makeup routine and have naturally radiant skin. The reality is having a natural glow requires having good products to put on in the morning. Figuring out different skincare can be nothing short of overwhelming, so here are a few award-winning products from Skinbetter Science that will lead you in the right direction. One of the most important things you can do to get rid of dull, dry skin is to exfoliate. Skinbetter Science AlphaRet Exfoliating Peel Pads have glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid to chemically exfoliate the skin and help improve overall texture and tone. Having an effective retinol product in your skincare routine is key to delivering brighter and smoother skin. AlphaRet Overnight Cream has retinoids and alpha hydroxy acid all in one bottle, which enhances re-texturization results without causing a chemical reaction or serious irritation. Finding products with a good brightening ingredient is essential to having illuminating skin. Even Tone Correcting Serum features patented b.r.y.t. complex which breaks down uneven skin tone and leaves your skin looking refreshed and rejuvenated. We aren’t all blessed with perfect skin but having a good skin care regimen can be the start of it.

3. Sun + Environmental Protection

We all have heard the best thing you can do for your skin is wear SPF. While we need to be fighting the good fight against harmful UV rays, there are other environmental aggressors that can do damage to our skin’s health. Free radicals, pollution, and other irritants you encounter every day can affect the way your skin looks and feels. It is important to get familiar with antioxidants they not only are protecting our skin from free radicals and pollution they help battle visible signs of aging and uneven tone skin. Here are a few products that can help protect your skin from environmental damage while also maintaining that healthy glow. Skinbetter Alto Defense Serum has daily antioxidant protection, improves uneven skin tone, fights signs of aging, and reduces redness. Talk about an all-in-one in a bottle! However, it is missing a key ingredient which is SPF. Don’t worry though, we have the perfect pairing which is Sunbetter Smart Tone Sunscreen. This silky-smooth sunscreen has a powerful protectant that not only protects you from UVA and UVB rays, but it also has zinc oxide which works as a natural reflective shield. It is also tinted, and adjust to each individual’s skin tone, so no need for foundation. Make sure you are applying protectants to your skin to get and maintain healthy glowing skin.
