It is the number one question I am asked as a makeup artist “How do I achieve Radiant skin?” Obviously diet, good genes and exercise play an important role in promoting great overall skin health. And yes there are many luminizers on the market to reflect light and mimic radiant skin, however makeup can only do so much, if the skin is not naturally lit from within it is harder to achieve a realistic result.
The road to glowing skin is paved with good intentions and disappointments. I personally have wasted so much money on testing different products and treatments only to find that they did nothing for my skin long term. There are so many breakthrough products and treatments available designed to assist in the texture, tone and moisture levels of the skin however choosing the exact right one for you can be daunting. I have had the honour of working with many celebrities over the years who all share the same se-cret when it comes to skin; that is to seek out the right skin professional to master your particular skin type and personally work with your skin and develop a very considered regime. Not only will this save you money in the long term but also you will see immediate results and get your skin where you want it to go faster.
The whole experience with your skin specialist needs to be a realistic one really think about your main objectives before your appointment. I would definitely do your research into what ethos you are buying into and if it is going to be an organic fit for you and your budget . It may take a few appointments before you find the right one but once you have you are on your way to achieving Radiant Skin and keeping in the loop of ever-changing technology. Once an established skin routine is in place then you can experiment with specialty therapies to target your specific skin conditions and concerns such as Light Therapy or IPL Therapy.
There is no quick fix to achieving a perfect complexion it definitely requires you to explore your nutrition and lifestyle choices but once you master your own skin and what works for you the outcome can be well worth the effort.
