Faux Glow 101


1. Start with a low-lather, oil-based cleanser. Best Bets: Cetaphil, Kinerase, B Kamins, Dr, Hauschka Cleansing Milk, Burt's Bees, Avalon Organics, or Sonya Dakar Grapefruit Wash.

2. To pump up the luster factor, exfoliate three times per week. Exfoliation maximizes product penetration, encourages cellular turnover and can ward off melasma.

3. You may not be knocking them back these days, but customizing a “cocktail” (beauty parlance for layering a variety of gentle but active products on the face for increased efficacy) of products for the face and "décolleté” is integral to great skin. Also, moisturizing throughout the day (over makeup) keeps skin moist.

4. Invest in an antioxidant-rich eye cream and a creamy moisturizer. Again, think about the fetus: You need to supplement moisture-boosting elements to help your skin's ability to stay hydrated. Key ingredients to look for are peptides, caffeine, hyaluronic acid and omegas 3, 6 and 9.

5. Toss on a nourishing mask while chilling out in the tub. Essential oil extracts and vitamins will further boost hydration and plump the skin’s surface.

6. Whether you live in Miami or Anchorage, sunblock is key. Sun exposure at any time of the year encourages hyperpigmentation for women of all ethnicities which is very difficult to eradicate post-delivery. Look for brands with UVA and UVB protection that contain titanium dioxide and zinc.
