5 Steps to Glowing, Dewy Skin Without Makeup
It looks like the glowing, ultra-dewy complexion is back in the beauty hot seat. Compared to other beauty trends such as matte skin which can actually refract light and look somewhat unnatural during the day, dewy skin portrays a more light, youthful and fresh look. Lately, many people have preferred this look which essentially involves a poreless, glowing complexion with a luminous finish, also known as "glass skin" in the beauty world.
So how do you achieve this glowing complexion? The best way is to focus on the health of your skin. Following a proper skin care routine will allow your skin to glow from within. While many achieve dewy skin with makeup, the science behind this look is to care for your skin so that it glows on it's own. The key is to indulge and pamper your skin, rather than only doing the bare minimum.

1. Start with a clean palette
The key to achieving fresh, youthful looking skin is to start off with a clean slate. That means using a cleanser that will remove any dirt, oil and debris that has been left on the skin or settled into the pores. You'll also want to make sure your cleanser is gentle enough to not strip your skin. After you cleanse, your skin should feel light and clean, yet hydrated.
2. Hydrate with a Toner
A toner will not only catch any other debris left on the skin after cleansing, but it should also re-hydrate the skin and give it a boost of nutrients. For this, you'll want to use a toner that is hydrating and contains antioxidants to protect the skin. Circulation is another factor that's important in achieving glowing looking skin. Therefore lightly press the toner into your skin. This will increase circulation and aid in giving your skin that natural glow!
To achieve dewy skin, you'll need to use a moisturizer that balances the skin and absorbs in quickly. For this, we would recommend the Reverence Jewel Cream, a creamy moisturizer that aids in brightening the skin, deeply hydrating and smoothing out skin texture while also minimizing the look of pores.
4. Exfoliate Regularly
Exfoliation is key in achieving glowing, dewy skin. The purpose of exfoliation is to remove layers of dead skin and in doing so, reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. For this, we would recommend choosing a scrub that contains nourishing ingredients such as natural oils as well as antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental damage. To achieve the proper level of exfoliation, use a scrub or exfoliating serum twice a week.
5. Incorporate a Serum or Face Oil (or both!)
Using a rich facial serum will provide your skin with the hydration and nutrients it needs to glow from within. A serum provides the perfect texture to balance your skin without adding greasiness or excess oil. For this, we recommend the 3D Beauty Emulsion which contains collagen, hyaluronic acid and ceramides to firm, moisturize and protect the skin. Hyaluronic acid works to seal moisture into the outer layers of the skin.
