The secret to dewy summer skin

Glowy skin | Dirty Works

We can’t stop obsessing over that dewy supermodel complexion, especially with summer just around the corner.

We’ve already discussed the benefits of swapping your powder highlighter for our Radiance Cream here, so in this article we’ll be sharing some ways to boost the natural glow of your complexion, WITHOUT breaking the bank.

Having the right products is important but looking after your body is KEY.

The secret to maintaining a naturally radiant complexion is treating your body with the respect it deserves.


1. Catch some ZZZs

A good night’s sleep can be the difference between a productive day and a sluggish mood.

Applying concealer might banish your dark circle woes but sleeping for roughly 8-9 hours every night can completely transform the complexion by reducing dullness.

So, why not hit the pillow a little earlier tonight, giving your mind some time to relax while your skin renews and repairs itself?

2. Drink plenty of water

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… drinking water is SUCH an important (but underestimated) part of your skincare regime, as it helps to rid the body of toxins and hydrates from the inside-out.

Aim to drink 2 litres (roughly 8 pints) a day. It might sound like a lot, but once you get into the routine of replacing those dreaded fizzy drinks with water, it’s really achievable!

3. Hit the treadmill with your bestie

There’s nothing quite like the increase in endorphins and decrease in stress experienced when a workout is complete! The good news is, not only does a workout improve your mind and body, it also works wonders on the complexion.

A lot of gym-goers rave about that post-workout glow and we’re totally on-board with disguising our sweat as ‘radiance’. We do, however, advise that you wash your face thoroughly afterwards to avoid blocked pores and blemishes!

4. Swap chocolate for nuts

Dreaming of a fresher complexion? A handful of macadamia nuts a day could be the answer!

These snacks are packed with oils and fatty acids which support the skin in repairing itself, meaning that your skin will be glowy in no time at all.
