On staying hydrated…
“My top tips for maintaining gorgeous glowing skin is to always wash with a non-abrasive daily wash or foaming cleanser; using something with too many additives will start to dry your skin out in the long run! Staying hydrated is definitely important, but eating lots of fresh fruit (which is full of antioxidants) will make your skin SHINE and sparkle!” Find out more about The Stylist Mama by following her on Facebook and Instagram.

On the importance of water…
“Water is so important to hydrate all the skin across your body including the face. Your skin is your largest organ and dehydration can affect your whole body from the inside out. I always recommend sipping on water throughout the day to ensure you're hydrated at all times rather than trying to drink larger amounts at the end of the day when you're already too thirsty. A well-hydrated face will make your makeup apply more smoothly and make your skin more luminous over time.” Find out more about LUXit by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
MyDeal Pro Tip:
Change Your Pillowcase & Sheets
The oil from your hair and any makeup residue from the day ends up all over your pillows and sheets, which then ends up on your skin. It doesn’t matter if you take your makeup off every night, or how often you deep clean your face and hair, you’ll end up with oil and dirt on your pillowcase, which in turn clogs your skin and can cause breakouts. With this in mind, every fortnight, wash your sheets and pillowcases. If you’ve had the same old bed linens for a while, get yourself a fresh set of sheets. Your skin will thank you for it, trust me. Plus, it’s an added bonus when you hop into bed and your sheets are nice, crisp and clean.

On the effects of the sun’s rays…
“Our skin goes through a lot of changes during our lifespan and is also the first noticeable victim of ageing, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept defeat. We all like basking in the sun, but like most devilishly good things in life, it’s a bit of a catch 22. The sun can cause havoc on our skin, but that doesn’t mean we can’t reap the very imperative benefits of some Vitamin D. Just make sure to protect your skin with some moisturisers that are time suitable for the times you will be outdoors, and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!” Find out more about Nim-Veda by following them on Facebook.
MyDeal Pro Tip:
Take Your Makeup Off At Night
One of the worst things you can do to your skin is stop it from breathing. Taking your makeup off at night allows your skin to do this, and takes away any dirt that built up from the day. You can take it off with micellar water, makeup wipes, or even something old school (but totally effective) like Pond’s cold cream. Cleanse and tone your skin after you wash it, just make sure you keep your bathroom tap set at lukewarm. Hot water dries out your skin, and cold water prevents your pores from opening up. It’s all about balance, my friends.

“Up your oily fish - for omega-3 fats. Along with, like, a million kajillion other important things it does for our health, it also gives us healthy skin and beautiful hair. Studies have found that omega-3's reduce the severity of psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions. Have this at least two to three times a week.” Find out more about Victoria Heath by following her on Facebook and Instagram.

On eating healthy…
“There are skin care products, and there are skin care solutions. The simple answer to maintaining naturally glowing skin has to come from within. We are what we eat. Our skin is a clear reflection of what we put into and onto our bodies. No matter how much we apply luxurious liquid gold on our skin, if we don’t look after our health and continue with bad habits, these skincare solutions will be a waste of our money and time. We must try our best to look after ourselves. Who doesn’t deserve glowing skin?” Find out more about Total Bliss Beauty by following them on Facebook and Instagram.

On being well…
“Beautiful skin requires a holistic approach. It’s not just about eating well and using the right skincare regime, it’s about being ‘well’ overall. Yoga, meditation and drinking lots of water as well as getting plenty of sleep, plus a focus on keeping your inner-calm; all of these things help maintain glowing skin.” Find out more about tonic australia by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
Emma Reid | Musq Cosmetics
On using natural skincare products….
“To achieve naturally glowing skin it is important to eat whole foods and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. At MUSQ we also recommend using natural skincare and makeup products that allow your skin to breathe and aren’t filled with irritants and toxic ingredients. A scrub 1-2 times a week is our tip when it comes to skin that glows to remove dead skin cells, revealing fresh and vibrant skin. Plus the fresh skin will allow your serum & moisturiser to penetrate the skin deeper to remove dead skin cells, revealing fresh and vibrant skin.” Find out more about Musq by following them on Facebook and Instagram.

On taking care of the body’s largest organ
“Our skin is fragile and yes the largest organ of our body. Busy lives, inadequate sleep, harmful sun rays, poor diet and alcohol all leave us with dry dull skin. Our skin is the first layer of our immune system, serving as a shield between legions of germs such as viruses and bacteria, especially this time of year. We obviously want to nourish it and protect it, unlike other organs we can apply medicines, moisturisers and other healthy potions directly to the skin, that's why Beaute Pacifique is my go to product, it literally feeds the skin from the inside with its amazing delivery system. You need to skip the long steamy showers that strip the skin, treat the neck and chest like an extension of your face. Gentle exfoliation, vitamin A for cell repair and it is the perfect time of year to get your damage for repair treatments in to really give your skin a boost for summer. Of course, a good intake of water is always recommended to hydrate from within. Intensed pulsed light, fractional pixel, derma pen and radio frequency all mixed together for a personal skin gym diagnosed just for your concerns. We work dynamically with the skin to get glowing radiant results.” Find out more about Dynamic Skin Services by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Everyone deserves glowing skin, and a combination of a healthy diet, hydration and the right skincare products can help you achieve that natural glow.
