Dewy skin is key to making your skin look healthier and younger and there’s much more that goes in to creating that look than a good face moisturizer. Proper skincare overall is what really gives you that glowing complexion and anybody can achieve it by finding a good skincare routine. The best part about having glowing skin is that you don’t have to spend as much time applying foundation and then a highlighter and how doesn’t want that?

If you need a little help with figuring out what skincare steps you need for glowing skin, try out this routine:

Cleansing oil. Healthy skin starts by having clean skin so if you wear makeup, you need to remove all of it properly. A cleansing oil is great for all skin types and does an amazing job as the first step of cleansing. Use it all over your face and neck in circular motions to lift off as much makeup as possible.
Mild facial cleanser. Double cleansing is important if you wear makeup as one cleansing round won’t remove everything. Use a mild cleanser to get rid of any of the makeup the cleansing oil left behind. You can skip this step if you don’t wear makeup.
Face oil. A lot of girls are still afraid to try face oils because they think it’ll make their faces extra oily but that’s not the case at all. Having a well hydrated face prevents your face from making its own oils so you should never skip moisturizing. Face oils usually sink in right away and often look less shiny that regular face creams but still give you a “lit from within” type of a glow. Apply a few drop on your fingers and press it into your skin and watch it glow.
Face mist. This step is more of an “as needed” step that you can use throughout the day. We often put our skin through harsh weather conditions so it’s important to give your skin a little pick-me-up whenever it feels a little tight.
Face mask. If you have some extra time on your hands, use your favorite face mask. They’re great for providing your skin an extra boost of hydration and it’s great for relaxing as well. Use a face mask twice a week to keep the glow going.
