Whether you’ve already been on holiday or have one in the diary before the end of the year, there’s a chance that you’ll be enjoying the benefits of a couple of weeks in the sun. However, if you want to enjoy a sunkissed glow all year round, there are a few skincare-based hacks that you can use which will help. Here are five things that you can do which will make you look like you’ve just got back from the tropics, even when you haven’t.

Remember to Exfoliate

Skin which hasn’t been exfoliated regularly has a tendency to look dull and it’s much harder to maintain a glowy look, be it fake or real. Dermalogica Hydro Masque Exfoliant is a five-minute masque that works synergistically to exfoliate and hydrate in a single step, leaving you with a luminous complexion that looks healthy and glowy without the use of make-up. It only needs to be used once or twice a week for maximum results, making it a low-maintenance option.

Use Glowy Primers

Priming your skin after cleansing and exfoliating is a surefire way to help your complexion to glow, especially if you opt for a product with ingredients to promote the glow. Elemis Superfood Glow Priming Moisturiser is a lightweight moisturiser that primes and hydrates to reveal a smooth and radiant complexion. It layers perfectly under makeup and can be used as a daily moisturiser, a hydrating makeup primer or as a highlighter to boost skin’s natural luminosity.

When it Comes to Make-Up, Less is More

When you look at people with glowy skin, the one common denominator is usually that they don’t have heavy make-up on. Full coverage foundation and powder based products make it difficult to create a glow, so opting for a tinted moisturiser like Evolve Organic Beauty Climate Veil Tinted SPF20 will allow your skin to breathe while complimenting a light touch with bronzer.

Highlighter is Your Friend!

Highlighting is the key to a healthy glow and during the summer, allowing you to add dimension and shine. Apply to the higher points on the face, starting on the cheekbones, Cupid’s bow and inner eye area for a little extra luminosity. HD Brows Eye and Brow Palette contains a highly pigmented highlight to lift your arches and enhance your face, while the double ended brush has one fluffy end for liberal application and a more sculpted end for precise application.

Fake Some Freckles

If there’s one thing that makes you look like Summer’s child, it’s a smattering of freckles across your nose, however, not everyone is lucky enough to have them naturally. The good thing is, faking freckles isn’t that difficult and can be done using an HD Brows Pro Pencil! Simply scatter dots across the nose and upper cheek area, then use your fingertips to gently press the product into the skin to soften, blend and make them look real.
