When I think of the word luminous, I associate it with joy, health, and love. What's made me feel luminous lately? Running. Spending an evening laughing my butt off with my girlfriends. Drinking an ice cold smoothie full of healthy ingredients. My 3-year old telling me she just can't stop hugging me. Fulfilling, happy experiences make me feel luminous.
When I think of luminous skin, I think fresh. Clean. Soft. Glowing. The kind of skin anyone would want to have. When I take care of my skin with good skin care products, such as those from the POND'S Luminous Line, I look in the mirror and feel luminous.
In the mornings, I like to alternate between a cream cleanser and an exfoliating cleanser. I have found that regularly exfoliating is an important key in maintaining a good complexion. POND'S Luminous Clean Daily Exfoliating Cleanser does the trick gently, making my skin feel soft and clean without any irritation. On alternate days, I love POND'S Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser. Some cream cleansers are difficult to rinse off and leave my face feeling somewhat grimy. This one rinses easily and fully and makes my face feel clean and radiant. Both of these products are hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and dermatologist tested.
After washing my face in the morning, I always follow up with a moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15. A great choice? New POND'S Luminous Moisture Day Lotion with SPF 15. It's light, pleasant smelling, dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and suitable for all skin types.
My dirty little secret is, while I always wash my face in the morning, I struggle to keep up with a nighttime face-washing regime. I usually wait until I'm exhausted and about to fall into bed, which is obviously the problem. POND'S helps, with Luminous Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes. These feel wonderful on my face, and make it easy for me to wipe away a day's dirt and make-up before I hit the sack. This product is hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, and safe for contact lens wearers.
This month, supermodel Molly Sims is partnering with POND'S to help women realize that great skin can make them feel luminous. They are launching the POND'S 30-Day Luminous Photo Challenge on Facebook. There are 30 challenges designed to encourage women to share photos of their luminous moments. From March 4 through April 2, women can submit photos via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #LuminousEffect for a chance to win some great prizes!
Molly Sims has her own tips for looking luminous, including:
- Start your day off with exercise and a healthy green juice
- Never go to bed without washing your face
- Exfoliate regularly
- Smile big!
