12. Take a Siesta
Snore your way to supple skin? You bet. The skin repairs itself while you’re sleeping, so sneaking in some Zs for 15-30 minutes can make your face appear more youthful and fresh. Just don’t nod off during dinner with the family, no matter how many times Aunt Carolyn talks about her hometown’s Annual Tube Sock festival.
13. Make a Splash
One of the easiest ways to get your glow on is to splash your face with cold water a few times. It’s super invigorating and when followed by gently patting dry, leaves your face looking refreshed and healthy. It’s also a great way to test just how waterproof your waterproof mascara is (kidding! Splash before putting on your makeup of course. I only say this because, um, I’ve learned the hard way. Long day. Hurrying. Eye roll).
14. Let Off Some Steam!
Turn your sink ito a spa . . . well, almost. Brighten skin in minutes by simply filling your sink up with hot water. Then, with your face about 10 inches above the water, drape a towel over your head to seal in the steamy bliss. After a few minutes, splash with cold water and pat dry. Voila! You’ll look and feel amazing.
15. A Solution . . . Right at Your Fingertips
All day, your fingertips are grabbing, typing, dialing and pointing. How about putting those digits to work on your complexion? Using your index and middle fingertips, lightly tap around your entire face then alternate with circular motions and gentle pressure. It’s a quick, convenient way to stimulate blood flow and give your face an energized radiance.
15 ‘n a Half. If all Else Fails, Fake It!
Sometimes you’re just too tired, too blah or too “I’d rather see what happens on DWTS and Modern Family” to get glowing, even if it only takes a few minutes. We understand, but guess what? There’s an app for that! You can still get an amazing glow with Instagram, a photo app that has filter options galore. Send your soft, flattering Instagram aura to friends in no time flat. Luminous skin is literally achieved in a snap (even if it is kinda cheating).
So there you have it. Snooze, smooch, belly laugh and bronze your way to a gorgeous glow this very instant.
