Just Dew It!

There’s a fine line between oily skin and a dewy visage. And to create the lather is not an easy task. Baking your skin with loose powder to make it look super matte is a thing of the past and now we’re more into a luminous, lit-from-within glow. It’s not just a highlighter that imparts a dewy finish, but starts all the way with your first step in your skincare routine: cleansing. Follow our guide to get the glow.

But First…

Your routine after cleansing, but before make-up can make or break your glow. To maintain optimal hydration, pat a toner that’s infused with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, into your skin. Follow this with a rich dose of hyaluronic acid in the form of a serum to replenish and boost of hydration. A primer can also aid in achieving your goal. Think hydrating and illuminating when choosing a primer.

  • Use a balm as blush. A subtle pink or orange tint adds a natural flush to skin, while the natural oils give off a dewy glow.
  • To soften skin and balance moisture levels, give your face a spritz or two of a hydrating setting spray.
  • The MVP of dewy skin? Oil. It works as a non-comedogenic highlighter in a jif. Dab a tiny amount on cheekbones, brow bone and across the bridge of the nose,
