How To Get Glowing Skin

Los Angeles, CA

What is my secret to healthy, glowing skin?

It’s a combination of things that I am so excited to share with you in today’s post!  I get asked about my skincare routine often and while there are a combination of things I do, at the end of the day, I really feel that it all comes down to the food you eat.  What you put into your body directly impacts everything – including your skin.  So if you’re eating a diet high in sugar, additives, caffeine, alcohol, and dairy – and your skin is always breaking out – well then it’s time to re-evaluate what you’re eating.  Simple changes like eliminating those items majority of the time, drinking enough water, and eating healthy fat will turn your skin around within days – I promise!  Here are all of my skincare secrets, tips, and tricks!

Diet

As I mentioned above this is #1 most important contributing factor to the way your skin looks.  Eating healthy fat, staying hydrated, and cutting back on sugar, artificial flavors, and dehydrating things like caffeine and alcohol are key.  While some say coffee is good for you, I personally find that it doesn’t work for me and completely dehydrates me, gives me stomach pain, and actually raises my anxiety/cortisol levels. I love matcha but even matcha was making me feel anxious, so I limit it to once a week!  

Moisturize

I am constantly sent different products to test out every single week.  I love rotating products and am always down to try new things – especially if they’re all natural – which many new products are starting to be!  At the moment, I have these products on rotation; La Mer eye cream and Sisley face cream (any of Sisley’s face creams are amazing – I particularly love this heavy duty anti aging one (a celeb favorite) or the hydrating booster.)  I’m also obsessed with any moisturizer from L’Occitane (they use high quality ingredients and are super affordable – I’ve used their Divine line for years and love to travel with their Aqua line.)

Water

Every morning I splash my face with cold water.  Cold water stimulates the blood flow in your skin and reduces pore size.  It also wakes you up and is so refreshing!  I then lightly dab my face in a towel – I never rub that creates wrinkles!!!!!  I also try and carry around a Swell bottle and drink from it religiously.  If I feel dehydrated I add a pinch of pink Himalayan salt into it – salt attracts water so it instantly hydrates you!  This is great to do after an intense yoga session, workout, or hike.

Cleanse

I don’t use a cleanser when I wake up in the morning which is probably bad but whatever it’s what I prefer!  I like just a simple splash of cold water!  At the end of the day, I use Simple makeup wipes to remove my makeup – they’re so gentle and really take everything off.  I’ve heard makeup wipes are terrible for you and have been urged to stop using them because they pull your skin and don’t fully clean it, but I haven’t found a cleanser that I like that removes eyeliner!  After my wipes, I use this milk cleanser to really get the makeup wipe film off and deeply clean – it makes my skin feel so soft and supple after.  I’ve heard amazing things about the GOOP cleanser and apparently it does remove all eye makeup – so I will be testing that and report back!!!  

Exfoliate

I have been using this Dermalogica exfoliator for 7 years.  It’s gentle and makes my skin feel so smooth.  I use it in the shower 2-3 times/week – never more.  Exfoliation is important, but I don’t think we should be doing it everyday since it is abrasive.  

Face Oil + Lymph Drainage Massage

Every morning I use a face oil – either the Indie Lee face oil, The Buff face oil (my new favorite!) or Mara face oil.  I put a drop of it in my hands and rub it all over my face, then I use this Clarisonic Uplift vibrating tool to do lymph drainage on my face – if you already have the Clarisonic you can just buy this massage head.  This helps me de-puff my face, chisel my jawline and also allows the product to seep in deeper.  I use face oil at night rather than moisturizer before bed.

Face Masks

I have tried tons of masks and my two favorites are; Sisley Black Rose mask and Tata Harper Resurfacing mask.  The Sisley mask is 1000% worth the money.  It really is.  It’s just incredibly hydrating and will make your skin feel INSANELY soft, dewy, milky…and it lasts for a long time.  The Tata Harper Resurfacing mask basically deep cleans your skin and washes away any dead skin so that you’re left with a super clean, seamless, glowy palette.  

Serums, Toners, Face Mists

I use these things sparingly as I like to keep my routine and products short and concise.  Also, I add these items in when I’m feeling extra dehydrated or depleted.  I love SKII Facial Essence, Olga Lorencin toner, L’Occitane face mist, and have heard THE BEST things about this Drunk Elephant Vitamin C Serum – seriously like 10 girlfriends have raved about it to me.

SPF

This Supergoop sunscreen is my favorite face sunscreen and I apply it everyday pre-foundation and post moisturizer.  My Cle de Beaute concealer has SPF in it which is great – and crucial for the sensitive under eye area!

Facials

Surprisingly enough, I do not get facials very often.  I adore them and feel so pampered when I do, but I either don’t have time or don’t make time to get them!  I go a few times a year to different places.  In LA I see Olga Lorencin (Jessica Biel and Halle Berry’s facialist) who is very knowledgeable and really takes the time to evaluate your skin, and then I go to Heyday – which is also in NYC, and focuses on clean/all natural beauty products!  The decor in there is to die for – and you’ll for sure want to buy everything in their shop!  

Blemishes/Pimples

I get a handful of pimples a year and they are always from either eating too much dairy + sugar or touching my face when I travel.  I do eat dairy and sugar from time and time – I’m not completely a clean eater and hate being overly strict with myself (a girls gotta live!), but I really try to be 80% of the time since I want to look and feel my best.  Traveling is so tricky because the plane air is dehydrating, your skin has to adjust to new air and climates, and there are germs everywhere.  I got a huge pimple on my cheek on our second to last day in Italy from all of the above and was sooooo annoyed!  Luckily, my girlfriend who I was traveling with taught me the best tricks.

First, wait to pop it until it’s really ready and only do so with clean hands.  Then, dab eye drops on the spot since it reduces redness.  Finally, cover it up with concealer, then foundation, then a dab of powder to seal it.  This works wonders on hiding it and within 2 days it was gone completely.  If you do suffer from frequent acne or breakouts, I highly recommend not only evaluating your diet, but looking into PCOS and a hormone imbalance.  

Cosmetic Procedures

I’ve never had a cosmetic procedure/botox/plastic surgery on my face but I am totally open to it if I feel the need someday.  I would absolutely get botox in my forehead since I have a ton of expression in my forehead when I talk!  I’ll share the experience if and when I do because I think it’s all quite fascinating.  My girlfriend who is 35 and has gorgeous skin, uses the Nuface device religiously. It’s an at home system/device that is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, tighten and tone – so a great option if you don’t want to go the cosmetic route.

Makeup

I have always used Giorgio Armani foundation in shade 6.5, and recently added the Cle de Beaute concealer into my routine which helps tremendously with dark circles.  I set my face with the Laura Mercier translucent powder (also adore this Chanel one) and use the Charlotte Tilbury highlighter on my cheekbones. Recently, I tried the Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush which is soooooo pretty on.  It blends beautifully and really makes your skin pop!!!

I hope you learned a few things from this post :)  I will add and update things as I try them too!  This weeks Wellness Wednesday giveaway is 10 of my favorite skincare products worth over $1000.  To enter this giveaway; follow me on Instagram and like/comment on 3 of my photos, follow me on Youtube, subscribe to my newsletter, and leave me a comment below telling me your holy grail skincare product!  Winner will be emailed directly this Friday at 6PM PST!

    So far I love Skin Medica Rejuvenation Hydrator and Dickinson’s toner! The toner is straight to the point, no fuss and gentle toner that works just now I need it to. Thank you for making this post! I’ve been taking your diet input and applying it to my daily routine, but am still learning about skincare. Excited to be educated and not just grab stuff that looks like it’s important from the drug store haha!

    My holy grail product would have to be Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. I had a horrible hormonal breakout due to some health issues and was suffering with very bad acne and scarring. But this serum has completely changed my skin. My breakouts are not as bad and my acne scars have faded significantly. I love this serum!

    My holy grail skincare product is Skinceuticals resurfacing activator (serum). You’re SO right that what we put into our bodies makes the biggest difference, but from the outside I’d say that a good serum has been a life saver. Good skin care is such an important investment, thanks for the wellness reminder!

    You have gorgeous skin & thank you for giving us your tips! I have cut out dairy & processed sugar for the most part, since May. I turned 28 in June & in July, battled terrible cystic acne all over my face,not even in my teen years did I battle w/ such painful, embarrassing acne. It was so depressing I made an appt. w/ my dermatologist but he was booked until August. In the meantime, I bought Sunday Riley’s Luna night oil & OTC Differin to help w/ the inflammation. It helped the severity but what is my holy grail right now, is the .1% tretinion cream prescribed by my doctor that has cleared up my skin. To prevent dryness & flakiness I use Glow Recipe watermelon glow sleeping mask & my face is rapidly getting clear & back to normal ! 🙌🏼

    My holy grail product is Cocokind My Matcha stick! I currently have 3…you can get them at any Whole Foods location across the country! I use it as a chapstick, under eye moisture stick, natural dewy glow moisture stick, cutical moisture stick…possibilities are endless! Tastes like matcha and coconut, and protects from free radicals and is SUPER moisturizing, portable, and so easy to apply. 1 stick lasts a long time, even with daily use. I love products that can multi-task and are made with real and simple ingredients nowadays. The Cocokind brand hasn’t failed me yet! :)

    I really love COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence.

    I’ve noticed it hydrating my very dry skin which is then leading to less redness on my face!

    Thank you so much for this beauty post! I’ve been following your blog since my Arizona college days (Theta love <3) and have always admired your natural and healthy approach to beauty!
    Caudalie has been my go to brand for daily serums. Also I recently purchased a pack of Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta pads during the Nordstrom sale and have been in love! Those with my Lancer stem recovery serum make my skin glow like never before!
    Cheers to glowing skin, Christy!

    Thanks for sharing! Going to bookmark this for future reference :) my holy grail product has honestly been neutrogena’s SPF 45 sunscreen.. I have rosacea and applying that everyday (every 2 hours) has been a miracle worker for helping to keep my skin calm and manage inflammation.

    ORMEDIC by Images is a must have for dry lips.
    This lip moisturizer instantly sooths lips with hydration, while improving the appearance and volume of lip contours. This product contains anti-aging polypeptide complex that supports collagen in the lips so they look naturally firm and full. It feels luxurious on lips and provides lasting moistures. I cannot live without this product and I always have at least one tuck away in my pocket or handbag.

    Thanks for sharing your skincare and make up tips! I recently bought the Clarisonic smart profile uplift and it has been absolutely amazing! I had bumps on my forehead for forever and a day and they’re slowly starting to disappear! I was reluctant at first to purchase it since it wasn’t cheap but so worth the money! Also, cetaphil moisturizer has been my go to – my face is moisturized for pretty much the whole day!

    My holy grail skin product has to be a combo of lip scrub (no more than twice per week, normally before wearing dark lipsticks) and a lip balm. Right now I’m using the French “La Roche Posay”, but hope I will try Elizabeth Harden’s too!

    hi kat :) to be honest, im super excited to enter the giveway because i dont have specific products that i use constantly. i havent seen a substantial difference in my skin due specifically to certain skin care products. I would say that i use tea tree oil regularly for my skin. i dilute pure tea tree oil with water and use a cotton round. The tea tree oil wipes away excess dirt that was left behind after washing my face (i can literally see the dirt on the cotton round). I’ve struggled with adult acne on my face and back for the last ten years. I usually notice differences due mainly to when i am eating cleaner, drinking more water (warm water in the morning is great too), and when my stress levels have reduced. hopefully i am able to try some new products that come highly recommended :)

    Kat, you have such amazing skinscare routines. I have bought a couple of the things you have recommended. I love la Mer products even though they are pricy and I love anything from Charlotte tilbury when I went to London and wanted to get everything. Her lipsticks are so nice too!
