Running late for work after an evening out? Get our quick tips for a glowing, rosy face in seconds - perfect days when you’re in a rush!
Step 1: Cleanse your face
First things first - straight to the bathroom! Remove any lingering traces of makeup with a cleanser adapted to your skin type. Dry skin tends to suit cream-based or milky cleansers, while skin that’s oily or prone to imperfections should opt for a foaming facial wash or a watery texture. It’s best to leave any exfoliating for the evening, as freshly scrubbed skin can be more sensitive to UV rays in daylight. Pat your face gently dry with a towel (don’t rub!) and get ready to bring out your skin’s inner glow with some targeted skincare.
Step 2: Pampering products for glowing skin
Now that your face is prepped, it’s time to move on to skincare. Less is more, so make sure your skincare routine includes all the key benefits your skin needs. To give your complexion a fresh, glowing look, pat on a small amount of facial serum, such as Idéalia Lumière Illuminating Moisture Essence, to reveal skin radiance. This helps to prime the complexion for a luminous, lit-from-within look. It goes without saying that dewy skin is synonymous with good hydration, so next, make sure to pick a day cream enriched with moisturizing ingredients. Vichy’s Idéalia Lumière cream is a melt-in gel powered by antioxidant peony root extract and Vichy Mineralizing Water to reinforce skin's moisture retention capabilities.
Step 3: Wake up with makeup
And now for the finishing touch! When trying to achieve a fresh-faced, glowing look, it’s best not to overplay your eyes or lips. After properly priming and moisturizing your face as per the steps above, apply a light layer of light-reflecting BB cream - far better than a heavy-duty foundation when aiming for a sheer, dewy complexion. A touch of eyeshadow in a rose-gold or champagne colour in the inner corner of your eyes is great for creating well-rested, wide-awake peepers. A pop of blush high on the apples of your cheeks and a slick of tinted lip-balm, and voilà: rosy, glowing, healthy skin in under five minutes. What’s not to like?
