HOW TO MAKE YOUR SKIN GLOW.

What’s better than faking it with highlighters and illuminators? Not needing to fake it – by building better skin from the inside out.
My skin started looking a little lackluster lately, so I decided to do something about it. Not the quick-fix, drown your cheekbones in illuminator kind of way – the real way.
Why? Because, well, I’m at the ripe old age of 25, and, just as my mother always told me, those years of binging on chocolate and fast food do finally catch up with you, so I decided to take action and try something new – i.e. Estée Lauder’s Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion.

A skincare routine should be so much more enjoyable than washing your make-up off and slapping on a moisturiser. It’s about taking a moment to indulge, and nourish your skin – healing it from the inside out, and giving it what it needs to stay radiant and youthful every single day.

1. REMOVE MAKE-UP WITH AN OIL CLEANSER
Your products can’t work their magic if they’re trying to breakthrough a make-up barrier. Massage a cleansing oil over your face in circular motions so it lathers-up. Rinse with tepid water.

2. PRESS MICRO ESSENCE INTO YOUR SKIN USING YOUR HANDS
Pour 5-6 drops into your palm and rub hands together.
Start at the chin and work your way upwards to the forehead. I keep kneading the lotion into my skin with my palms until it’s completely absorbed.

Nothing has ever had such an instant impact on my skin. Micro Essence makes it look like I’ve pumped my daily two litre water intake straight into my pores and after using it for two months, my overall skin tone looks so much better. I’m even considering saying goodbye to my beloved tinted moisturiser. 
Adding this step to my routine morning and night has totally upped my skincare game because I’m treating the skin from within. Micro Essence quickens-up the cell renewal process so my skin looks refreshed and radiant 24/7. It also builds-up the skin’s natural barrier to be more resistant to the day’s stresses, which slows the ageing process, and you know what they say – prevention is better than a cure.

3. FOLLOW-UP WITH ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR SERUM
Put 3-4 drops of this serum in your palm and use the same gentle pressing motion to apply it all over your face. Then, using the tips of your fingers, gently tap all over your face for one minute. This increases blood flow and awakens the skin.

Advanced Night Repair locks-in the Micro Essence and helps it to penetrate deeper into the skin. They work together to boost the skin from within and give you a real glow that no highlighter can mimic.

4. MOISTURISE
Now you’re done with the target treatments, work a simple moisturising lotion into your face and neck to seal the deal.

5. EYE SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL SCREAM FOR EYE CREAM
Dry, papery skin around the eyes can make you look 10 years older, which isn’t usually the look I’m going for. 
Use your ring finger to gently massage an eye cream around the whole eye area.

  1. If your skin looks that good, these products are a must try. I've actually never tried Estee Lauder products before, but there's a first for everything! xoxo

  2. Awww….sweetie you have a gorgeous complexion and you're right that a good skin care regime will ensure it stays that way. I'm nearly 55 and thanks to a good regime right from my teens, I still have good skin. Can I just add that 'feeding from the inside' extends more to eating right, exercising, drinking lots of water, and getting adequate sleep? The lotions and potions are brilliant, but diet, exercise, water and rest are really the key….good clean living, if you like 🙂 That Estee Lauder serum was always for 'old ladies' when I was your age. I guess times have changed.

  3. While the product you used looked great, I am not sure that that alone can lead to a clear complexion. I do agree that it is very important to take all make up off at the end of the day, but for me, it is having a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water which will really make your skin glow.
