4 Steps To Insta-Worthy Skin
Do you spend hours in front of the mirror trying to figure out which filter is best for your Instagram post? Is it Valencia, Amaro, or maybe Sierra? Do you spend hours trying to navigate through Photoshop or Lightroom but end up with a photo so obscured from the original, you just scrap it? If you're looking to get Insta-worthy skin without pesky filters, this blog post is perfect for you!
Instagram, the highlight reel. Women show off their beautiful life along with their equally beautiful, smooth, and imperfection-free skin. It's hard work not to envy these women and ignore unnatural amounts of jealousy towards a simple photograph of a stranger, but these are the times we live in. If you've found yourself in a scrolling spiral, obsessing over these women with glorious skin, trust us, you're not alone. We're all guilty of spending way too much time on the gram. But you can also trust us in saying that you can achieve that highly sought-after Insta-worthy skin. And it's easier than you think.
So it's time to embrace the filter-free life with these 4 steps to Insta-Worthy skin.
Cleanse & Exfoliate
The first step to achieving Insta-worthy skin is keeping your base clean and free from any leftover makeup residue or dead skin. Cleansing your skin morning and night will help prevent breakouts and give your skin a fresh base to work with each morning before makeup application.
Exfoliating is compared to a deep clean for your skin. It removes all dead skin cells and leaves you with a brighter complexion. Not only will this make your skin look smoother, but it will also help your makeup apply more evenly. We recommend using an exfoliator at least once a week.
Remember, you can't have a filter-free glow if you're putting icky, dirty things on your skin. So always start with a clean canvas before applying any products to the face.
The second step is to hydrate, hydrate, and then… rehydrate. Moisturising your skin keeps it looking plump and healthy, adding a beautiful, youthful glow that Instagram filters just can't do. We recommend moisturising morning and night.
The third step is to protect your skin from the sun. Sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature aging (who knew, right?!) So get in front of it and make sure you’re using sunscreen every single day. Add it into your daily skincare regime like it’s been there the whole time. We recommend applying it after your moisturiser has been absorbed to ensure it’s not forgotten about after applying your foundation. Or better yet, take advantage of The Quick Flick’s multi-use sunscreen, moisturiser, and primer all in one! Check it out here.
Not only will sunscreen help keep your skin looking young and healthy, but it will also prevent any unwanted pigmentation, wrinkles, or sunspots.
We will leave you with one final piece of advice, which is:
When it comes to healthy, Insta-worthy skin, the key is to be consistent. So nail down your morning and night skincare regimes and watch your skin transform. In no time at all, you'll be ditching the filters and repping that stunning skin that had you miserably scrolling just a few weeks prior.
There you have it! If Insta-worthy skin is your goal, these tips and tricks should help. So stop spending time looking at other people's highlight reels and start living your own!
