Tip 1: Take A Self-Care Approach To Skincare
My daily morning and evening skincare routines are essential to boosting my natural glow, both inside and out. It’s part of my self-care, which is important for me because if you take care of yourself, both mentally, physically and emotionally, you can give so much more in all that you do.
Every day, I wash my face using the Kora Organics Cream Cleanser, £ 27,00 and the Foreo Luna Mini 2 Pink, £ 99,00 for an extra deep cleanse. Then I use the Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask, £ 45,00 – it’s one of the best exfoliation experiences I’ve ever had, and my skin is immediately super smooth, bright and taut. Following this, I apply a couple of serums (Kora Organics Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum, £ 63,00 in the morning and Kora Organics Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum, £ 67,00 in evenings) and use the Kora Organics Noni Glow Sleeping Mask, £ 45,00 right before I go to sleep. It ensures I wake up with plump, hydrated skin.
Tip 2: Know Your Ingredients
Ingredients such as vitamin C and turmeric can help brighten and event skin tone, as well as natural AHAs and BHA ferments that help resurface the skin and encourage cellular turnover, such as the lemon peel ferment and willow bark extract in the Noni Night Serum. Noni, rosehip oil, sea buckthorn oil are rich in nutrients and essential fatty acids, which are great for nourishing and moisturising your skin.
Tip 3: Enlist The Help Of Gadgets
I give myself daily facial massages with a Odacité Crystal Contour Gua Sha Green Aventurine Beauty Tool, £ 40,00 and our Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil, £ 23,00 to de-puff my face. Gua Sha tools are also great to use throughout the day to help relieve tension and ease pressure points. The Nuface Trinity Facial Training Kit, £ 315,00 is another favourite of mine. I really see a difference in the contouring of my face! I’m also obsessed with light masks as it helps stimulate collagen production. I use the Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro, £ 430,00 a few nights a week.
Tip 4: Embrace Multitasking Formulas
I love the Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Balm, £ 21,00 as it is perfect quick, on-the-go application; I keep it in my handbag and use it on myself and kids as needed throughout the day. It is super moisturising and I even sometimes apply it on my cheekbones on top of makeup for an extra glowy finish.
Tip 5: Enhance Your Glow With Makeup
My favourite concealer is the RMS Beauty "Un" Cover-Up Concealer, £ 34,00 in 22. It really allows you to build more coverage where you need it and leaves the skin looking clear and dewy. The shimmer of the Charlotte Tilbury Jewel Pot Walk of No Shame in Walk Of No Shame, £ 16,80 in Walk of No Shame perfectly complements glowing skin. I finish my makeup look off with Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes Mascara, £ 13,00, it really opens up my eyes.
Tip 6: Tweak Your Lighting
My secret trick for FaceTime and Zoom calls is to always use a ring light. You should always avoid overhead lighting! And, before getting on your Zoom calls double check your makeup and make sure it’s is all blended. I usually press the Kora Organics Rose Quartz Luminizer, £ 26,00 along my brow and cheekbones - it contains finely crushed Rose Quartz to create a beautiful highlight. And finish off with a few spritzes Kora Organics Balancing Rose Mist, £ 31,00 for a dewy look.
