How to get flawless skin without makeup
Ditching processed food for those rich in nutrients is a sure-fire way to get naturally radiant skin. That means skimping on sodium, sugars and saturated fats, and embracing fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and wholegrains instead.
TIP #2: Drink more, drink less
By this we mean you should guzzle down a lot more H2O, but skimp on the alcoholic beverages. The dehydrating effects of alcohol cause fine lines to become more prominent, but drinking loads of water will plump them up. I know what I’d rather…
TIP #3: Work hard, rest easy
We’re talking exercise and sleep here. Be sure to raise your heart rate regularly, as this gets your blood flowing and your skin glowing. And when it comes to sleep, make a conscious effort to get a good dose of pillow time every night. Do so and you’ll not only enhance the effects of your skin care products (the skin does its best healing at night), but you’ll ditch puffy eyes for good, too. Product pick: The Body Shop Wellbeing Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow and Body Mist.

TIP #4: Embrace illumination
No, I’m not suggesting you load up on the powder and liquid illuminators, but opt for skin care products that promote radiance instead. Our office can’t get enough of Estée Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator – and for good reason. It corrects pigmentation, making way for luminous, glowy skin, even when it’s bare.
TIP #5: Keep your face clean
From germs on your fingers and your phone to the build-up on your pillowcase, clean skin is happy (and mostly flawless) skin so aim to keep bacteria at bay. Cleansing each night and washing your makeup brushes regularly are other good ways of combating the germs, so don’t be lazy when it comes to these either. Product pick: Cosmetica Brush Cleaner.
Also, be sure to ditch makeup, grit and grime from your skin each night by cleansing the day away with a cleanser like Pure Essense Black Diamond Deep Cleansing Facial Bar. Lazy girls, get your mitts on cleansing wipes such as Johnson's Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Cleansing Wipes.
