8 Skin Secrets Experts Swear By For Glowing Complexions

6. ICE, ICE & ICE

“One amazing (and free) thing I do at home to keep my skin looking great is ‘icing’ There are three main benefits of icing. Similar to a sports injury, when you put ice on a breakout, it reduces redness and inflammation. Ice can also be used as a natural exfoliant. When you put something in the freezer, it preserves it, similar to putting meat in a freezer. Just remember, you have to keep the ice moving. Don’t hold it in one spot, it can burn like heat can. Sometimes I even throw a little aloe vera in the water before freezing it.” –Jennifer Kramer

7. TRY A SKIN OIL

“The quickest way to fake glowing skin is to use a good face oil. It will automatically nourish your skin and give it a healthy shine (not greasy or oily). They do not clog pores. They balance oil production. Apply a facial oil to damp clean skin twice daily. Use it alone or mix it with your tinted moisturizer and your skin will glow in a pinch!” –Sonya Dakar

8. USE PROTECTION

“In the morning, apply antioxidant serum followed by a broad-spectrum sunblock of SPF 30 or higher. Some UV penetrates through the sunscreen in the antioxidant provides extra protection. While you are outside, make sure you are staying protected — yes with sunblock, but even with your clothing. Wear sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat.” –Dr. Ava Shamban
