When you look back at pictures of yourself, do you ever think “Oh my goodness, why did I do THAT?” – from dodgy hairdos to questionable make-up choices, many of us feel like we’ve improved with age, and that’s what people are calling a “glow up”. Today, we’re taking a look at five products which can improve your appearance to such a degree that we consider them to be essential to every glow up:
This gel from Dermalogica not only helps to clear the skin of acneic breakouts, but it also prevents any future breakouts from happening. It contains a vitamin B complex of niacinamide and biotin combined with zinc gluconate, yeast extract, caffeine and nordihydroguaiaretic acid, which soothes irritation, inhibits over active sebaceous gland activity and purifies the skin.
We know SO many people who look back and can’t believe either how orange their fake tan looked or how pale they were in their younger days. This gradual tan from Elemis allows you to gradually build your colour, giving you the perfect happy medium between “milk bottle” and “Irn Bru”!
One essential step in looking elegant and put-together is taking care of your hands and making sure they look presentable. This treatment kit from Nailtiques is designed for use after false nails or gels but will work on all hands to nourish and replenish nails to quickly strengthen and rebuild nails back to a healthy condition.
If you, like many of us, spent your younger days bleaching and straightening your hair into a parched oblivion, a major aspect of your glow up should be to address the condition of your locks. This hair and scalp mask contains frangipani monoi and pink clay to help restore softness and strength to dry, damaged hair. It’s also perfect for all hair types.
How many people do you know who look back at old pictures and feel horrified by the amount of make-up they’re wearing? Many of us in our younger days had a tendency to slap it on with abandon, but actually, as you age you discover that less is more and that using a good moisturising BB cream which provides coverage and sun protection is a much more elegant solution.
