Seeing relatives I haven’t seen in while over the holidays always makes me stressed. Many of you are probably going to encounter at least a few relatives in these coming days. It requires meticulous outfit planning, a knockout beauty routine, and red carpet-worthy hair, but nothing says “My life is everything I hoped it would be and more, plus I’m aging beautifully,” better than a radiant complexion. Here are some tips you can implement to look like the prettiest one in your family.

Use a highlighter in addition to your usual foundation. It will give you glowing skin, rather than a dull, matte look. Use it on your brow bone, cheek bones, the bridge of your nose, and your chin. Just don’t overdo it, though, because then you run the risk of looking oily instead of pretty.

Moisturizing has never been more important. Dry air and the holidays go hand-in-hand, so moisturizer is super important for looking radiant. Apply body lotion within five minutes of showering, and use a face brightening moisturizer for an extra kick of radiance. Try ElysΓ©e LuminAcai Skin Brightening Moisturizer with age-defying ingredients – it’s an excellent way to boost your complexion’s luminosity.

Be healthy…before you start to eat tons of holiday foods and gallons of spiked cider. Plenty of sleep and a healthy diet all contribute to better looking skin. Also, don’t think exercise is only good for getting the “You could use a sandwich or two” comment from relatives; it also contributes to a healthier complexion!
