3 Glowing Skin Tips to Being Ultra Photogenic
We all want to look great in a photo, whether it’s a professional photo session for a special event or the latest selfie for our Instagram feed. Yes, makeup and filters can do wonders, but what if you looked like that 24/7? Check out these tips to help you have gorgeous, glowing skin naturally!
Prep Your Skin
To get a luminous glow on camera, you want light to reflect off your skin. The best way to achieve this is to use an exfoliating treatment to slough off those dead cells and bring out fresh skin underneath.
To prep your skin for this process, wash your face with a cleanser that works deeply within your pores to remove makeup, debris, and other impurities from your skin. The TULA Purifying Cleanser is a great place to start if you’re looking for something that’ll be as gentle as much as it is effective. After washing your face, put on the an exfoliating mask, like the TULA Exfoliating Treatment Mask, for about 10 minutes to reveal bright skin.
Don’t forget about your lips! If they are dry and chapped, use a lip scrub and apply a soothing balm afterward.
Hydrate Your Skin Both Inside and Out
Maintaining the water content of your skin is crucial for healthy glowing skin. Ask any model for her beauty secrets, and the universal answer is always: “I drink tons of water throughout the day.”
So give your skin a boost of hydration from the inside by drinking eight glasses of water a day and eating your fruits and veggies, which will also give you the benefits of all those healthy antioxidants (Pro tip: A cute water bottle is proven to encourage drinking water!).
At the same time, replenish the moisture in your skin and ward off free radical damage by applying a serum, like the TULA Illuminating Serum, and then a facial moisturizer, like the TULA Hydrating Day & Night Cream. These will be absorbed deeply into your skin to help restore moisture and provide nourishment. They will also help even the skin tone and create a smooth texture—perfect for creating a flawless foundation application.
Sleep, Relax, and Pamper Yourself
Beauty sleep is actually a real thing! Getting enough sleep and being well rested will make you look great in your photos so try to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night.
If you need help going to sleep, slow down and reduce any stress or tension in your life. Practice some yoga. Try enjoying a drink that contains natural sleep-inducing ingredients or a hot cup of herbal tea (and be sure to avoid alcohol!).
By increasing your amount of sleep, you will reduce any dark circles and puffiness under your eyes. Finally, pamper yourself with the TULA Overnight Skin Rescue Treatment. This will help work with your skin’s natural nightly repair process to reinvigorate your skin and help you wake up with a softer, more hydrated skin.
