What is the one thing you love about your favorite celebrities? Their dewy, healthy, glowing skin. Stars like Kerry Washington, Halle Berry, Thandie Newton, Gabrielle Union, and Tika Sumpter are envied for their glowing skin. You can achieve glowing summer skin with with these 5 easy tips:

Glowing Summer Skin Tip #1: Prep

Celebrity women like Gabrielle Union wear tons of makeup for different roles but they still manage to have great skin. Why? It’s important to properly cleanse your face, using products according to your skin type (acne, hyper-pigmentation, oily, dry skin, etc.) Many skin problems are caused by improper cleansing. Cleanse thoroughly every morning and every night. Use a makeup remover to ensure every little bit of makeup, sweat and accumulated dirt is removed. Work in a cleanser that is appropriate for your skin type for at least 1 minute by emulsifying it with water and massaging it into the skin. About 2-3 times a week, you should exfoliate by using a facial scrub to gently scrub away dull, dead skin cells. Rinse all remaining product from the your face.

Glowing Summer Skin Tip #2: Moisturize

Following your cleansing routine, you should always moisturize with a good SPF moisturizer, no matter what your skin type. A good moisturizer is important for all women who want a brighter complexion. Go for moisturizers which contain light reflecting pigments. The added sheen gives celebrities like Kerry Washington a glow to their face and minimizes a sallow complexion and dark circles.

Glowing Summer Skin Tip #3: Prime

Apply a makeup primer to guarantee an even makeup application. Primers also seal in moisture to help maintain a glowing appearance. Opt for one with sunblock. Celebrities like Halle Berry would never leave their house without one and most use a retinoid cream, which increases collagen production, making skin look bright and refreshed.

Glowing Summer Skin Tip #4: Base

In the summertime no one wants to wear heavy foundations. For glowing skin, choose a lightweight, liquid foundation or a favorite for celebs like Thandie Newton, tinted moisturizer, to even out your skin tone and hide any blemishes. Apply a thin layer evenly across the skin. Blend the foundation in with your fingers for a more natural appearance.


Glowing Summer Skin Tip #5: Illuminate/Bronze

Apply an illuminating or translucent powder or a light dust of bronzer across your cheekbones, on the bridge of your nose, and just above your temples to really emphasize your glowing summer skin and best facial features. Translucent powders go on sheer and don’t add any color to the skin, so they will not hide your healthy glow! Tika Sumpter wouldn’t leave her house without it and neither should you.
