Yoga flow, yoga glow: How to achieve that ‘just out of class’ skin effect

Yoga flow, yoga glow: How to achieve that ‘just out of class’ skin effect

You never look as healthy, fresh or glowing as when you leave yoga, right? Yes. But on the days that you can’t make it (ahem) to a class or need to dodge the sweat, here’s how to achieve the yoga glow having not actually done a class at all.


Yoga is good for absolutely everything – body, mind and, of course, skin. Getting rid of toxins through sweating is a great way to look after your skin, once the necessary cleansing precautions are looked after too. But what if you want that radiant, post-yoga glow on a non-yoga day? Or what if your sport of choice isn’t actually yoga?

K-Beauty vs. Yoga Skin

While K-beauty trends like “glass” skin and “cloudless” skin are similar to “yoga skin”, what you’re looking to achieve is slightly different.

Yoga skin involves that really dewy glow, really skimming quite close to being wet look without actually being wet at all. UK-based make-up artist Sara Hill was among the first to talk about yoga skin, and for her, it is all about hydration and taking your time – you have to give your skin a little time to settle when moving from step to step.

Preparation is key

Hydration is where it’s at for this, and so skin prep is where this look really comes into its own.

Step 1: Go through your usual skin routine as normal. If it’s the evening time and you want this look for going out, repeat your morning skincare routine (you can leave off the SPF if it’s night time).

Step 2: During your serum/moisturiser application, do a bit of gentle face massage just to get the blood pumping and some lymph drainage started.

Step 3: Prime your skin using, if possible, a silicone-free product. I personally love the REN Perfect Canvas Skin Finishing Serum, but any you like should work.

Step 4: This is the most important step – mixing your foundation, moisturiser and highlighter to create a skin-loving cocktail. Best advice would be 3-4 drops of foundation, one drop of facial oil, and 2-3 drops of liquid highlighter.

Mix it together and work it into the face with fingers only until you’re happy with the coverage (which should be nice and sheer).

Remember!

Avoid baking, setting sprays and applying too much powder – it’ll completely reverse all your good glowy work.

Psssst….
