5 Products For an Instant Glow

Have an August wedding that you to want to turn heads at? Or perhaps it’s a reunion coming up – you’ll want to look so good that your high school boyfriend (and your entire graduating class) can’t help but notice. They say that all good things take time, but when it comes to your appearance, that phrase doesn’t cut it.

Here are some products for those of you seeking instant gratification — but let’s be real, thats all of us.

1. Clarisonic

I received the a Clarisonic Mia last Christmas from my mother, and in retrospect this was a subtle hint that I needed to upgrade my skin care regimen. I was hesitant at first but now I can’t go a day without using it! Clarisonic cleans your face 6 times better than regular face-washing, which for me, meant a smaller investment in coverup, rapid acne serums, and facials.

It also helps skincare products absorb better, making for a flawless skin treatment program. The gentle sonic frequency helps to stimulate collagen (great if you want anti-aging benefits), diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and create more radiant skin. Benefits appear within the first week of using Clarisonic, give it three and you’re on your way to flawlessly glowing skin.
