11 Skinfluencers Share The Skincare Hacks That Make Them Glow

There is no denying: a radiant complexion really is the gold standard of healthy skin. And who better to tell us how to get it than some of the best skinfluencers in the game. Not only do these guys live and breathe beauty, they have their fingers on the pulse when it comes to all things skin and know more than a thing or two about amping your glow. A quick Insta stalk confirms that getting a lit-from-within glow about your base really is possible – these guys are living proof – and they’re about to share their secrets. We suggest taking notes. 


“I have dehydrated skin, so when it is looking (and feeling) slightly tight and lacklustre, I always reach for hyaluronic acid. The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5 – the best hyaluronic serum I have used to date. Hyaluronic acid draws in moisture, and this one contains different molecular sizes (penetrating skin at different levels) which equals JUICY skin.” – @bambidoesbeauty


“I love to use multi-tasking products. One of my go-to hacks to help me glow is using an oil and mixing it in with my moisturiser in the day. Farmacy’s Honey Grail Ultra Hydrating Face Oil, helps combat dry skin as it’s super cold right now and the air sucks out all the moisture from my skin but also gives a gorgeous dewy finish. I sometimes dab a little extra onto my cheekbones for a natural highlight.” – @lumi_lise


“My favourite part of my skincare routine is exfoliation and I always include BHAs and AHAs to improve my texture and brightness. The Cosrx AHA/BHA Toner Treatment which contains willow bark water, glycerin and glycolic acid. It is easy to apply and pairs nicely with my moisturiser to give me a smooth glowy finish. I would recommend using it 2-4 times a week.” – @_alicialartey


Tan-Luxe Super Glow is a winner for my ghostly, blemish-prone skin. It doesn’t break me out! It’s not orange! It hydrates! It cancels out redness! And it smells amazing!!! I use it every third morning in place of my usual hydration serum so all credit to my healthy glow is owed here and not because I’ve jetted off somewhere for some secret winter sun. Actual tan = bad. Fake tan? Getting better every year.” – @thatgracegirl


“It has to be sunscreen. I’m 32 and my skin looks better than it did at 28 thanks to sunscreen. I use Ultrasun Anti Pollution Fluid SPF50+ daily and it helps with virtually any skin concern by preventing inflammation, redness and sun damage that leads to hyperpigmentation. It also allows existing hyperpigmentation to heal. It is the single best thing you can do for your skin, and the cornerstone of any good skincare regimen – even in winter.” – @ms_hannah_e


“Unfortunately, my skin doesn’t react very well to direct applications of vitamin C so I have to get my brightening hit from fruit extracts instead. Carbon Theory’s Overnight Detox Serum is a targeted spot treatment, but it also contains cranberry extract which is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. It is one of my favourite serums to use when my skin is looking lacklustre.” – @skin.ting


“I always keep a bottle of Mario Badescu’s Buffering Lotion handy to help heal any blemishes. It works every time and is so easy to use. Shake the bottle well and apply after cleansing and toning the skin on the affected area at night as soon as you feel a painful spot developing. You can also use it a few times a week on areas where you usually develop acne/cystic acne to prevent future breakouts.” – @my.skinology


“For me, if my skin isn’t exfoliated, it’s going to look dull and lacklustre no matter what. My favourite product for glowing skin is the PSA Heroine: Mandelic & Licorice Superfood Glow Toner. It contains mandelic and lactic acids to remove dead skin cells and other great ingredients such as niacinamide and liquorice extract to give the skin a healthy look and feel.” – @jasminetalksbeauty


“Moisturisers are such a crucial thing to get right and people often make the mistake of using one that is too rich, which can lead to clogged pores and acne. You can avoid this by checking moisturisers for pore-clogging ingredients. Tony Moly’s The Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Moisture Cream is a great, lightweight moisturiser for those who struggle with this.” – @sparklesandskin


“The secret to great skin is hydration hydration hydration! If you are getting enough, you don’t need to exfoliate daily. Protect and nourish your skin barrier morning and night by piling on Alpha H’s Hyaluronic 8. The result will be supple, glowing skin.” – @andrewwheatcroft


“I like to sandwich my hydrating/hyaluronic acid-based serum, PSA Skin The Most:  Hyaluronic Super Nutrient Hydration Serum, with my facial mist (currently Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream Mist). This gives the serum extra hydration to draw into the skin for extra plumpness and skin that glows.” – @addicted_to_face
