'Dewised skin' is the latest Instagram beauty trend. The term first coined by beauty aesthetician, Shane Cooper, refers to well hydrated skin that radiates a healthy glow and dewy appearance.
Nick Drewe, trends expert at WeThrift has shared 7 simple steps to achieve healthy, hydrated and glowing skin and help you upkeep this popular skincare trend. In just seven steps, you can have the glowing and radiant skin you may have been dreaming of.
If you are a skincare enthusiast you've probably heard this plenty of times before, but wearing SPF is a vital part of your routine. You can go to your local aesthetician or your favourite skincare YouTuber and they will all most likely say this is the most important step to protect your skin and help you to achieve that glowing look.
Always make sure you apply SPF as the last step of your skincare routine.
Use makeup that has SPF.
I know most of us would rather go bare faced on these upcoming warm days. But for those of you who want an extra glam look or have exciting plans that you feel the need to wear makeup for. Make sure that foundation or BB cream has SPF in it, this helps protect your skin even further.
Make sure to exfoliate
Regular exfoliation is important, this doesn't mean exfoliating every single day, twice per week is considered the appropriate amount. Using a gentle scrub is enough to get rid of the dead skin which helps give your skin a fresh and radiant look.
Pro tip: Make your own homemade face scrub that has natural sugars and oils to maintain a romantic glow.
Use a multipurpose moisturiser
To reduce the amount of products you use, try using a multi purpose face moisturiser if you have acne prone skin or you tend to have a lot of blemishes. A combo of moisturiser and SPF will be your new best friend.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Hydration is an extremely important factor when mastering your skincare routine. Making sure you drink enough water throughout the day should be your priority, we often get extremely dehydrated without even noticing. So grab the biggest water bottle you can find and start drinking.
In addition to the many health benefits, drinking water can also help maintain your skin's elasticity, reduce puffiness and prevent acne amongst other things . You can even switch it up and add lemon or strawberries to make your water taste even better.
Add vitamin C to your routine
Many dermatologists will advise you to use serums or any products that contain Vitamin C. This is extremely important as we're approaching the spring season, and it is known to protect against harmful UVA rays. All you need is just a few drops to help combat hyperpigmentation, improve fine lines and aid collagen production.
End the night with a bare face
Applying a makeup remover or cleanser to end your romantic evening, is an effective way to keep your skin from breaking out or forming blemishes, and removing all the dirt and makeup that has been on for hours can be very therapeutic.
