What’s the key to an “I just spent the summer in the Greek Islands” summer glow? Founder and CEO of ModelCo, Shelley Barrett shares her top tips on getting the kind of skin that will have people asking you if you just came back from an exotic tropical holiday.
Exfoliate regularly – “As skin cells build up, they will start to diffuse light and in turn, dull the surface of the skin. Regular exfoliation will gently whisk dead skin cells away to reveal the fresh, smooth skin below.”
Embrace oils – “I love applying ModelCo Rosehip Luxury Facial Oil. This skin-quenching elixir is packed with the hydrating, firming and brightening ingredients.”
Give your skin a boost – “ModelCo has literally bottled the secret to an instant glow with our new ModelCo Instant Miracle Booster Serum. This wonder serum is formulated with a healthy dose of Vitamin C, renowned for its skin brightening properties and has the ability to magically transform a flat and dull complexion in a flash.”
Light up – “Using an illuminator will help you achieve a dewy glow, and ultimately leave you with a brighter complexion. I apply it lightly down the centre of my nose, on my cupid’s bow and of course, to top off my cheekbones.“
Fake a glow – “A self-tan will not only lift your overall glow but your mood too. When it comes to fake tan I find the first thirty minutes after you shower is the best time to get your glow on. When the skin is clean and starting to cool it’s at its best to react with the tanning agent, as well as being super absorbent and soft.
Exfoliation is the key to getting a smooth, “I-can’t-believe-it’s-fake-tan” finish. I use ModelCo Tan Remover, an exfoliating scrub that smooths skin and removes old tan for the best bronze application.
Over application or uneven application is unsightly – use a fast working tan remover immediately to correct mistakes! A tan remover helps to remove self-tan mistakes when applied directly after the initial tanning process – perfect for when you get it on your palms!”
