HOW TO GET THE DEWY SKIN EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT
Winter is here and if you do not necessarily live close to the equator you are probably sitting in pretty grey and gloomy weather right now. Winter is the absolute worst for our skin, with extreme temperature changes, heating, wind -I don't know about you, but this is the time I struggle the most to keep my skin looking healthy. There are a few things I have tried and these seem to keep my skin looking dewy, and glowing, so you are very welcome! I hope you try these 5 steps to get your skin looking wonderful.

MASK & GLOW
Dry skin is your worst enemy if you want to achieve a dewy look. All the dead skin cells should therefore be removed with a gentle exfoliant. During the winter months, I personally have to exfoliate much more than during other times of the year. Skin that has been exfoliated with look more even, rosy and healthy.
GIVE BACK TO YOUR SKIN
Masks are my best friend. I love putting on a mask before I shower - easy washing off and also your pores open with the hot water and the mask can sink deeply into your skin. I do a mask 2-3 times per week and have been experimenting with multi-masking a bit since I have combination skin. Opt for an overnight mask you have extremely dry skin!
EXTRA SHOT OF GLOW
Use a serum, and incorporate it into your daily routine. A serum will give you the extra nourishment your skin needs. Especially as we age, our skin needs a little more TLC. To achieve the dewy skin, a serum is essential. I love oils which give my skin the extra glow before applying foundation. If you haven't tried apply oil before your foundation, you are missing out!
Find a primer or a glow prep product that works for you. I like primers to minimize pores but most of them just leave my skin look flat and matte. Since I want my skin to look dewy and moist, a pre-foundation product with a little shimmer is a great way to get that look. An alternative would be a highlighter after apply the foundation, just go easy on it - too much, is really too much here!
LOOSE IT NOW!
As many other people, I have combination skin that leave my T-Zone quite oily. I use to apply powder all over my face to finish of my make up routine and "set" the foundation. Yes, you won't be oily that way, BUT you also won't glow! The key is to know the areas you get oily, only apply a little bi of powder there and let the rest of your face shine. A very light weight powder is best and I would apply a little at first and go in for touch ups throughout the day, instead of applying a thick layer in the morning.
I would love to hear your experience trying this routine! For myself, it has been trial and error to figure out what works for me. I am not a fan of too much highlighter to achieve glow, so these steps are what works for me.
