Glowing skin makes us look youthful and fresh! Use our 5 Skincare Hacks For Glowing Skin all year round. We have made it easy for you to achieve at home as you can effortlessly slip them into your current skincare routine. While these hacks are great for glowing skin, ensure they work for you by using the right products for your skin type.  

Exfoliating is your best friend.

Exfoliating not only removes dead skin cells but also allows other skincare products such as your serum and moisturiser to penetrate deeper into your skin. What does this mean? Your products won’t just sit on top of your skin, which means better makeup application and results. Oh, happy days!


You should aim to exfoliate 1-2 times a week, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin exfoliate two to three times a week, and if you are dry aim for once a week. There’s no need to over-exfoliate using a face scrub. Not only can it cause redness, but it can also lead to irritation, and we don’t want that. Instead, introduce a mild daily exfoliant such as AHA’s into your beauty routine.

Essence before serum.

This is a step that is often overlooked or skipped entirely, but it can make a big difference in your skincare routine. Applying an essence before your serum has a host of benefits and you won’t want to miss out. Not only will an essence leave your skin super hydrated meaning your fine lines and overall skin tone will be improved, but it also nourishes the skin leaving you soft and glowy to have you showering in compliments all day.

Double cleanse just makes sense. 

Double cleansing may sound like extra work, but it is a much-needed step for daily makeup wearers. Sometimes using a water-based cleanser isn’t enough. Start with an oil cleanser to break down your makeup, and impurities such as sebum, and pollutants. Look for an oil cleanser for all skin types. Next, apply a water-based cleanser to remove the remaining residue and makeup for a squeaky-clean finish.

Tanning drops mixed into your moisturiser. 

Want to wake up with beautiful glowing skin? Incorporate tanning drops into your nightly regime. It takes a few seconds, and the reward is well worth it. Start by adding 1-2 drops of tanning drops to your nightly moisturiser. Mix your concoction onto the back of your hand and apply your moisturiser as you normally would. Be sure to rub it in evenly so you don’t end up looking patchy the next morning. Start slow and see how your skin reacts and increase from there.


This method is particularly good if you are tanned, or fake tan and you find your face doesn’t match the rest of you. You will wake up the next morning with a slight tan to make you look fresher and oh-so-glowy. Once you see the results you won't want to stop.

Use a gua sha with your skincare.

Gua shas are a fabulous tool to adopt into your daily skincare routine. They improve the efficacy of your skincare products by assisting in product absorption when properly massaged onto the skin. More importantly, a gua sha can stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage. Why is improved circulation important? Improved blood circulation delivers oxygen and nutrients to skin cells to boost a radiant and healthy complexion! Bonus – a gua sha tool also assists in stimulating collagen production.


Look up gua sha tutorials on social media to reap the benefits of this wonderful skin-enhancing technique. It is vital to use facial oil when using your tool, so you don’t pull your skin!

Combine these 5 hacks into your skincare regime and you will be glowing like never before. Remember to always start slow especially when introducing new techniques to your skincare. Less is more and if needed, you can build from there.
