How to Achieve Glowy Skin All Year Long | Beachly Beauty
We all love that inner, dewy glow that comes after taking a long, hot shower post-beach day. Your skin is lightly sun-kissed, your cheeks are rosy pink, and you feel rejuvenated on the inside and out. But there's a slight problem... we can't all go bask in the sun all day every day at the beach. For starters, our skin wouldn't love that (we would need all the SPF) and a lot of us aren't lucky enough to live by the coast. So I did some research and have been trying to find the best ways to achieve glowy skin all year long - no matter what season we're in or place you live. Ready to see these Beachly Beauty tried and true tips?
Step 1: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Did you know your skin is your largest organ? Which means a lot that goes into your body, comes out through your skin - and on the flipside of that, what you put on your skin can soak into your body.
I have two rules I refer to when being mindful of this - first, I always try to nourish my body with healthy bites and a whole lotta hydration. And second, I'm extra careful about everything I put on my skin - which means being obsessed with only using clean beauty products.

Step 2: Have a solid skin care routine
Having a go-to skin care routine helps to make taking care of your skin simple and easy. All you need is a nourishing face wash, hydrating serum, reliable moisturizer, and a few other little tips and tricks.
Some of my favorite additions to my skin care routine are using an ice cube in the morning to reduce swelling, a solid SPF for every day wear, and a nice little facial mist for that extra spritz to feel good.

Step 3: An all-natural makeup look
I don't know about you, but it's a rarity if I'm doing full glam and spending more than 10 minutes on my everyday makeup. Once your skin is prepped and ready, I love to grab a good CC cream for a light coverage, some hydrating concealer for my under-eyes, and a creamy blush for a dewy glow.
Want to brighten up your makeup look?
Add a soft highlight to your upper cheekbones, tip of your nose, and cupids bow. Go for a light, creamy eyeshadow with a subtle shimmer to sweep over your eyelids. And brush up those brows to give yourself an awake, fresh-faced look.
P.S. Sometimes I skip the mascara! A quick little eyelash curl can do the trick if you're really going for that au natural beauty babe vibe.
Step 4: Bronze it up for sun-kissed skin
Looking for a way to achieve that bronzed, goddess tan without spending too much time in the sun? I have just the thing! Hanalei's Self-Tanning Mousse is luxurious, easy to use, and oh-so affordable. It's less than $20 in the Beachly Member Market! And this little bottle of bronze will last you for several tanning sessions.
Pssst! Don't forget to exfoliate before you tan! This step will give you an even, all-over sun-kissed glow. Here's my favorite exfoliating scrub by Pirette - the scent is warm and beachy too, which I love!
