How can I make my skin glow naturally in one day?
1. Exfoliate your Face to get that Glow
The Skin naturally accumulates dead cells on the surface making it look patchy, flaky, and lifeless. An excellent glowing skin tip is to scrub your skin regularly! (Just be careful with overdoing it, skin professionals advice to scrub the face 2-3 times per week, but this depends on your skin type and condition)
I try to scrub my face 1-2 times a week some weeks just 1 time some weeks 3 and definitively there are weeks where I just let my skin product free including the scrub.
If you have sensitive, dry skin: Exfoliate 1-2 times a week
If you have oily skin: Exfoliate 2-3 times a week
(Only if your skin can tolerate it)
You can do a Natural face scrub with Olive oil and sugar Before your regular Skin Care PM routine. I love Natural Skincare recipes, but I always want to be sure about what exactly that ingredient does on my skin, and sometimes I trust more regulated brands that offer skin products based on studies.

2. Apply Sleeping Pack!
Have you ever heard about the Korean beauty routine? well, those women know what they were doing! Because apply Sleeping pack will definitively change your life.
How to use it? Do your usual skincare night routine and after that, apply the Sleeping pack; being the sleeping pack the last step you do before bed.
The next day, the first thing you need to do is wash it off with warm water and then do your regular AM skincare routine.
That extra step lock all the products, creams, and oils that you previously apply and prevent them from evaporating from your skin during the night.
The result is just amazing! You woke up with a soft, silk skin the next day in the morning.
If you never have tried this Korean skincare step you need to try if to get Glowing skin overnight.

3. Follow the right Skincare routine!
It’s Imprecindible to know your skin type to apply the right skincare routine for you.
Basically, you need to mix and match products based on your skin necessities, and if you stick to your skincare routine, your skin can improve drastically!
Here’s the Skincare routine that is working AMAZINGLY for me (I’m a combination skin type, dryer in winter and more oily in summer)
- Soap Free Face cleanser (Using a soap-free one is CRITICAL! for glowing skin, I strongly recommend and use this one by Bioderma)
- Face Serum (this Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C serum is perfect for glowing skin!)
Face Moisturizer (This one depends on your skin type, use a lightweight watery formula for oily skin and a thicker but not greasy one for dry skin)
Face Oil (YES, oil on the face! This step is great for Oily skin as well. Try this one to start)
Some days I use a Face scrub before my skincare routine, and I Always apply sunscreen at the end!
4. Glowing Skin from the Inside Out
To get more Glowing skin we better eat all the colors! Try that your plate contains a lot of greens, reds, purples and other billant colors on your veggies and fruits.
It’s amazing how daily habits build your entire life and determine your health. Trust me, even eating a big healthy salad plate today will improve your skin tomorrow in some way!

5. Avoid Suger and processed Foods (LIKE NOW!)
Eating food like (white rice, pasta, bread, sugar, etc.) that contains a High glycemic index may increase skin inflammation.
Eating this type of food is so tempting and delicious (I actually love rice). However, it is not the best for your getting glowing and healthy skin.
What I do is I try to eat healthy all week (sometimes I cheat, haha), and I take one day from the weekend to be my Cheat day! So I eat what I want but being careful with quantity.
Actually, this eating style has been the major reason I don’t gain weight, but I don’t lose weight either, and I’m about 10 pounds over my ideal weight.
So, Resist the temptation to these high glycemic index foods is the best practice here! We need to resist the constant marketing that we all are exposed to that promote these foods.
6. Glowing Skin around your Eyes
Sometimes we forget that the contour of our eyes is CRUCIAL! I actually forgot to add my eye cream on the skincare routine above. (Don’t be like me! haha) And pay attention to your eyes.
If you are in your 20’s, you will be thankful by your 30’s, 40’s and go on if you start today to take care of your eyes, neck, and hands like the rest of your face.
Apply a deep moisturizing eye cream at night to prevent early wrinkles under the eyes, restore and firm your fine lines and look glowing skin the very next morning!
7. Drink the life Beverage
How to get glowing skin overnight? EASY! If what we want is glowing, well-hydrated, and natural youthful skin we need to drink enough water! It’s VITAL for a well-hydrated skin and glowing look.
And I’m referring to plain water, avoid sugar beverages and any other beverages that don’t contain 100% water. I actually don’t even drink many teas, juices, or milk but this is my personal preference.
8. Take Beauty Sleep!
Sleeping your hours will allow your body and cells to recover overnight naturally, so it’s super important to give at least 6-8 hours of sleeping to get glowing skin the next morning.
It’s important to consider not going more than 10-12 hours (Babys and teenagers not included here, haha) because sleeping more than recommended promotes depression and bad eating habits.

9. Get Moving!
Exercise improves blood circulation and this promotes healthy skin! Take at least a 30 minutes walk every day, and if you can, do it outdoors! To refresh your body and oxygen your skin cells with nature.
There’s nothing more beautiful than connect with nature while getting that beautiful glow that you get after a workout.
10. Give yourself a Face Massage
I recently got my first face roller (I know I’m super late to this trend! haha), and I just can’t stop using it since then!
It’s Perfect to reduce eye bags and promotes youthful, glowing skin when you apply your serum or face oil.
Use the face roller, gently rolling it for your face at night and morning. The results are amazing! I love how it feels on my skin, it’s so relaxing, and I strongly recommend it for everyone!
What to eat for glowing skin?
Improve eating habits will definitively bring positive results not overnight, but permanently!
We need to avoid some foods and add others to our diet, slowly but constantly. Because eating a diet rich in fruits and veggies gives you a radiant, beautiful, and super attractive natural glow!

Easy Makeup Tips for Glowing Skin
1. Never Skip your skin-prep routine before Makeup!
(Check my guide on exactly what to apply on your face before your makeup for glowing skin)
2. Avoid Mattifying Primers.
To fake glowing skin with makeup, we need that extra juiciness that mattifying primers get rid of our skin. Apply a Dewy, hydrating primer like this one by NYX.
3. Use a lightweight, sheer coverage liquid hydrating foundation.
Stay away from matte, heavy full coverage foundations because this time, we want to let our natural skin glow to be the principal. Of course, we don’t shine all over the face, but that’s when we use powders.
4. The concealer is the key!
We want to glow naturally but at the same time get the coverage on specific areas like under eyes, dark spots, blemishes, etc.
We are using a sheer coverage foundation, but we want to opt for something full coverage for concealers but to hydrate at the same time.
An affordable but high-quality option is the Hydrating Elf camo concealer. I’ve been using it for a while, and it’s a total dupe for the shape tape concealer!

5. Don’t use blush Powder.
Opt for a cream blush like this one instead of powder blush.
6. Contour and highlight.
When I try a Glow skin Makeup I often skip contour, and in case you want to contour your face, I recommend you to opt for cream contour and stay away from powder contour.
On the other hand, HIGHLIGHT IS THE THING HERE!
If anything that we did before worked, this is the perfect moment to fake glowing skin!
Apply your highlighter (powder or cream) in the right glow skin areas like Top of your cheeks in direction to your forehead and hairline, the tip of your nose, cupid’s bow, and brow bone.

7. Set with translucent powder.
We don’t want to use compact powder, only set the areas that you don’t to be oily, like under your eyes and T-zone.
For this Fake Glowing skin, we don’t want to do anything crazy with face powder like baking or applying a lot of product; we just want to set the makeup on the problem areas. (if you have very, very dry skin, avoid this step)
8. Finish your Makeup with a Glow dewy mist.
THIS STEP IS IMPORTANT FOR GLOWING SKIN AFTER MAKEUP. This face mist by Mario Badescu is perfect for hydrate the skin and refresh your Makeup after powders!
