Every woman deserves to feel radiant, luxurious, and confident in her own skin. We want you to always feel your most beautiful, so we put together a few tips on how to achieve the most radiant skin- ever- while busting some myths along the way.
Radiant Skin Mythbusters
Let’s start by busting down a few skin-hydration myths.
“I have oily skin, so I can’t use moisturizer.”
Oh, beauty, but you can! Using a moisturizer will actually help to balance out oil levels.
“I drink enough water, so I don’t have to worry about hydrating.”
The skin is composed of approx. 30% of water. So, drinking water does help, but it is not the cure-all to giving your skin the hydration that it needs.
“SOS, there are no moisturizers out there for me.”
Don’t give up hope yet. Not all moisturizers are created equal. A formula that is many-in-one might be exactly what you need.
So, Why Should I Hydrate?
Hydration is a key part of achieving a radiant and healthy glow, and here is why.
Helps Minimize Wrinkles
We’re not here to ask you to hide from your wrinkles, in fact, it’s time to get comfortable with the idea of wrinkles and embrace the story that they tell. But if you’re looking for more radiant-looking skin and a smoother complexion, making it a habit to apply moisturizer after your shower or when you wake up in the morning will help to keep skin smooth and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. That means you get to stay youthful and radiant for longer.
Flawless Makeup finish
Makeup sticks to dry places on the face and runs into cracks- especially those lines around the eyes and mouth. Use a moisturizer like our SPF Tinted Moisturizer that both hydrates and conceals. Wait a few minutes so the moisture can sink into your pores, and then begin painting your masterpiece.
Our skin is naturally prone to dryness without hydration. A good moisturizer will have plenty of vitamins (like vitamins A, E, and B5) to build skin firmness, replenish moisture levels, and protect new skin cells from damage.
Calms Down Acne
Hydration is proven to calm down acne and other skin concerns. Opt for a lotion, face cream, primer, like our MVP, that is packed with nutrients and made specifically for all skin types.
How to Achieve a Radiant Glow
It is time to get ready for a skincare self-care session that leaves you glowing. Your skin will love you for this.
Exfoliating the skin removes dead skin cells and encourages new, healthy skin growth that appears bright and youthful. Try exfoliating at least 2-3 times per week.
Use a Skin Oil
A luxurious skin oil creates a shimmering glow and nourishes at the same time. The BFR Skin Revival Organic Hydrate + Glo Oil will help your skin find balance feel soft, nourished, and beautifully radiant.
Achieving radiant skin means remembering to hydrate every day. The skin naturally dries out, so once it loses enough moisture, it looks not-so radiant. Use a moisturizer that is packed with vitamins and natural ingredients to keep your skin looking flawless.
Protect with SPF
Harmful sun rays can damage the skin and cause it to look dull, so always opt for a moisturizer with SPF protection. Our MVP Tinted Moisturizer + Concealer is a 5-in-1 skin protector. Not only does it shield your face from the sun, but it also leaves skin looking smooth and radiant as ever.
