I’m also on the quest for glowy skin! My skin is very dull and dry.

Usually I use a cream cleanser, but for the past 3 weeks I’ve been cleansing with coconut oil (hot cloth method) and wow, it’s working wonders. I find the cloth acts as a softer exfoliant. My skin is much clearer and smoother looking.

As well as that, I find sheet face masks great for a dewy look. My fave are the Tony Moly ones.

the best things you can do for your skin are diet based!  Drink tooons of water (buy a 1/2 gallon water bottle and shoot to fill it up twice a day) and eat as clean as possible, with minimal dairy and your skin will look ahhmazing 🙂

starrynight898 :  I’d be careful with coconut oil as pp recommended. It may look great after the first day ot two but it is comedogenic and will clog pores. Jojoba oil is closest to our skin’s sebum and also non-comedogenic… I am not recommending this just fyi.

If your main skin concern is dullness, regular use of a chemical exfoliant will make a big difference. Since you only exfoliate a few times a month, I’m assuming you’re currently using some kind of physical exfoliant? I would definitely ditch it for an acid toner or serum. If you tell me more about your skin type and budget, I can suggest products/active ingredients that you might want to consider (there are a lot out there, and some acids are better suited for certain skin types than others). Seriously, if you do one thing–ACID!

If your skin is on the dry side, I highly recommend trying out a hyaluronic acid product under your moisturizer (FYI: HA is not actually an acid, it’s hydrating instead of exfoliating, totally different than what I’m talking about above). HA has been a huge game changer for me; it boosts hydration and really plumps up your skin (which is fabulous if you have fine lines). HA is often a key ingredient in sheet masks that give you that dewy look. I totally recommend sheet masks, but a daily dose is even better for me. Again, happy to give product recommendations and tips if you let me know your budget and what your regime currently looks like.

Finally, Vitamin C has well-documented skin brightening effects, so a Vitamin C serum is another thing you could try out. Again, there are multiple forms of Vitamin C and many products (good and bad) at a variety of price points. If you want to go all in (or have a lot of hyperpigmentation), it’s something to consider. But I definitely think you would get great results just adding in a chemical exfoliant and hyaluronic acid booster!

My skin is happiest/glowiest when I use retinol and Vitamin C.  I can’t use retinol anymore because we are TTC and I miss it so so much!

starrynight898 :  A good skin care regimine is best (and others have given great tips) but I would suggest using a sheet mask the night before or morning of your wedding!  They’re great with helping to give you an extra glow!

What previous bees said, but also: Be careful with adding new products close to the wedding, in case you have an adverse reaction to one of them.

That said, apparently Japanese brides start using SK-II sheet masks before the wedding. They’re espensive as hell, but I think any old sheet mask that doesn’t break you out should work. And buy a good highlighter.
