It’s official, healthy skin is finally in fashion!
In the last few months, the skincare and makeup industry have seen a huge rise in the popularity of so-called ‘dewy’ and ‘glowy’ skin look that has been popularised by both makeup artists and skin therapists alike. From the celebrity red carpet to the runway this originally Korean trend is taking the industry by storm, with numerous products in both the make-up and skincare industry emerging to fill the gap in this new found market (including Dermalogica’s NEW Phyto Replenish Oil: Your Dewy Skin Defence).
Although it was predicted by numerous industry experts that the makeup and skin care trends would revolve around the ‘no makeup look’, especially after the successful hashtag #nomakeupselfie and with more and more women wanting to look naturally glowy and radiant rather than layer upon layer of foundation and concealer (think dewy, fresh face, just-left-the-treatment room skin) no one quite imagined it would be this big!
For us as skin therapists at Winslow Skincare, we couldn’t be happier with this latest trend! Before when matte makeup was all the rage, all you were effectively doing was drying out your skin, applying layer upon layer or dehydration and pore clogging ‘matte’ foundation and parching your skin of vital hydration and moisture.
At Winslow Skincare, we will always preach that healthy skin is happy skin and healthy skin means hydrated. Once your skin has got that boost of hydration then it will have a natural glow and luminosity to it, which also happens to be the latest makeup trend! So why we understand that trends go in and out of fashion and styles come and go, try and stick with this one as it really is skin health focused!
So, embrace that ‘oily’ shine and let your cheekbones do the talking!
Create the look
To create this look you need the base of ‘perfect’ skin, whilst I personally don’t think anyone’s skin is perfect, just different and unique to them, we will work with it for the moment! By perfect, make-up artist are implying that they want blemish free, naturally hydrated, youthful skin that has got a great glow and luminosity to it before they even apply a signal product, providing the perfect base for that no makeup look. At Winslow Skincare, this is exactly what we can help you achieve with an array of treatments and products to boost help hydration, clear up breakouts, lighten pigmentation and much more.
So start with a great cleansing routine. Double cleanse your skin with PreCleanse and your Dermalogica Prescription Cleanser. Then exfoliate. This is probably the most impactful step of your skin routine at home as it is what will show the most immediate difference on your skin, I would recommend Daily Microfoliant however you can also try Dermalogica’s latest Daily Superfoliant for a powerful resurfacing effect.
Next is the most important step, apply your Phyto Replenish Oil, your Dewy Skin Defence using the Dewy Skin DIY Massage developed by Dermalogica. Apply your moisturiser over the top and you have the perfect skin base!
Tip: For that extra glow apply a Skin Perfect Primer spf30 for that hint of colour and spf protection!
