At this time of year, with the last of Winter hanging on for dear life and even more snow in the forecast, it’s easy to feel very drab and dull, favouring warmth and comfort over a glam glow. However, Spring is just around the corner and giving your body an overhaul to get your glow on can make you feel better and improve your mental wellness, too. Here are five of our favourite products for helping to restore your glow:
Face masks are a great way to get rid of the dull, dead skin that may be shrouding your complexion and stopping it from looking its best. This mask from Elemis contains naturally occurring fruit extracts from strawberry and kiwi, mixed with a kaolin base to restore radiance, enhance circulation, and brighten the skin, leaving you looking rejuvenated and glowing.
Is there anything more likely to make you look tired and drawn than dark circles under your eyes? This dark circle corrector from Decleor had a refreshingly delicate texture and is an all-in-one treatment for dark circles, containing caffeine to stimulate drainage to reduce puffiness, as well as orange pigments which deliver an instant illuminating effect.
Exfoliating your body is also a good way to improve your overall glow, and this salt-based exfoliator from Elemis is designed to specifically remove dead cells, tone the skin, increase blood flow and even improve your metabolism. It improves the skin’s ability to absorb moisturisers and other products and contains no parabens, SLS or mineral oils.
Fatigue is one of the main causes of feeling as though you’ve lost your glow as it can cause dark circles and tired-looking skin. This cream from Decleor is designed to impart radiance into skin every morning, and contains powerful active ingredients, to work on the signs of tired skin. Tamarindus Extract offers intense hydration and optimum skin softening, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles to fully rejuvenate skin.
Gradual tanner is one of the very best ways to increase your glow and make you feel less like you’ve been hibernating in a cave for the past six months! This bronzing lotion from Elemis is designed to deeply moisturise the skin, while building a gradual, even, natural looking tan. It contains anti-oxidant rich green tea for a more even skin tone and red algae extract to help ensure long-lasting hydration.
