I think we’d be lying if we said we never, at some point, dreamed of waking up, naturally radiant, rolling over to gaze lovingly at our significant other as our skin sends out a soft ethereal light a la every unrealistic rom-com ever made. We know that logically there’s lighting, make-up, post-production, regular Grade-A celebrity facials, and diets consisting solely of juice to get skin like that, but, there’s got to be an option for us regular people, right? Behold, 4 steps to waking up looking as flawless as Julia Roberts in virtually any movie or at least on the heels of Julia.
Bees are hard workers. Not only do they literally keep the planet’s ecosystem humming, but they want us to be gorgeous too!

2. HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE
Your skin is your largest organ, and just like other organs and muscles, it needs to be kept hydrated in order to work, look, and feel it’s best. 8 glasses a day is the usual recommended amount of water you should be drinking, but you can also work out how much water you need based on your body weight. Usually, drinking about half of your body weight in ounces of water is a great way to calculate how much water you should be drinking. For example, if you weigh 150 lbs, 75 ounces is about how much water you should be drinking daily.
LiverSupport.com1 offers some advice on how beneficial drinking water can be to assisting in the removal of waste in your liver.

There are large selections of attractive reusable bottle options out there to choose from, so find the one that gets you excited for your daily dose of H20.
3. Wash Your Makeup Off EVERY Night
It can be hard. You had a long day at work, you were out way later than you should’ve been with your friends, or you just don’t wanna-the thought of taking your makeup off seems like some kind of medieval torture. However, making sure you properly cleanse your face helps to keep your pores clean which can prevent breakouts, prevent wrinkles, and keep your skin hydrated by taking off dehydrating makeup that can dry and settle into lines. Plus, it saves you time on laundry since your pillow won’t end up looking like a Jackson Pollock painting every morning.
4. Facial Tools
Non-consumable beauty products are having a moment right now, and rightfully so. There can be some great benefits to using a device to apply the product to your skin before you go to bed or when you’re getting ready in the morning. If you want something low tech, a Jade Roller or Gua Sha tool, used by Chinese women for thousands of years, are chill, beautiful looking options. It’s been suggested that by following certain facial massage patterns2, lymphatic drainage may be possible and may even help to shape certain facial muscles to aid in tightening problem areas such as around the eyes and jawline. If you’re more tech-y, the Arbonne Intelligence Genius Ultra is an exciting option. We lose about 50% of the product we apply to our skin when we apply it with our hands. The Genius Ultra can save you money by extending the length of your product and also helps product absorb more efficiently into your skin with the use of gentle, low-level ultrasound technology. After cleansing your skin, dab on your selected product to various points of your face, then using a slow circular motion, use the Genius Ultra to apply your skincare product.
