Unless you’re one of the few genetically gifted individuals who actually roll out of bed looking perfect, this “natural” look can take some work. We’ve consulted some expert sources and distilled their advice to five simple tips.

HYDRATE – The best way to look like you have dewy skin… is to actually have dewy skin! And the only way to really accomplish that is to hydrate. You may think your two or three bottles of water a day, combined with your morning coffee and whatever you drink with dinner is enough, but we’ve learned otherwise! According to weight-loss guru Lori Boxer, eight ounces of water (not soda, not juice, but actual water) is the absolute minimum just to serve important functions such as keeping your body temperature regulated and protecting your joints and organs. Remember, your skin is your largest organ. Treat it right!

EXFOLIATE – Use a gentle scrub to slough off old dead skin cells and reveal a radiant new you.

HYDRATING MASK – As it turns out, moisturizing alone isn’t enough! To really capture the “supermodel who just stepped out of a rainforest” look, you need to use a hydrating mask every week. The experts at compare a weekly hydrating mask to your daily multivitamin: it’s “an intense, concentrated dose of all the medicines (antioxidants, vitamins, and acids) your skin needs in one sitting.”

MOISTURIZE. Then use Smart Cover’s Moisture Primer Lotion before applying makeup to smooth and prepare your skin  without leaving it feeling greasy.

HIGHLIGHT – Apply some of Smart Cover’s Believable Bronzer on your cheekbones and the tip of your nose to maximize the impact of your new glowing beauty.

It can be fun to glam it up with dramatic makeup, but simplicity has an allure of its very own. With a dewy complexion and a little Smart Cover, you’ll make looking gorgeous look easy.
