Waking up with picture perfect skin is a myth, not even models, actresses or beauty editors’ wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. There are several factors that contribute to lack-luster skin, sleep deprivation, dehydration, travel and overindulging in libations.
Tired skin is the result of damaged lipid barriers that no longer seal in moisture, skin becomes uneven, dull and blotchy. The good news is that there are several beauty products that give back glowing skin on contact, some are makeup primers, and others are foundations and powders infused with illuminating properties. A good skin illuminator will enhance the complexion and allow us to fake it until we make it.
