Let’s Talk Brightening, and How to Achieve the Ultimate Glow
From Paprika to Snail Slime - the best ways to make your skin glow!
Where do you turn to for a quick glow-up when your skin feels slightly (for lack of a better word) dull?
There is far more you can do for your skin than just get enough beauty sleep (although that definitely helps) so we’ve put together some fun, easy & quirky top tips for bright, glowy skin in all your basic forms.
Spice up your meals (literally) with some paprika, enriched with amazing sources of antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E to give your body the brightened boost it needs. Needing some inspo? Check out taste.com.au for some quick, delicious recipes.
And if you want some out-of-the-box alternatives, look no further than snail mucin (otherwise known as snail slime).
Yes you read that correctly, the mucin itself is packed full of Hyaluronic and Glycolic Acid so it has fantastic moisturising properties and helps stimulate the production of collagen for radiant, youthful glow. Don't worry about the snails either, their mucin is collected by en leaving them in a dark room for 30 minutes to roam free before taking them back to their home and collecting the mucin left on the room's surface.

Let's turn to our skincare favs: serums. The logic behind serums is to deliver an intense dose of active ingredients fit to conquer your current skin concern - in this case, it would be to brighten and hydrate.
When selecting a serum, you’ll want to look for one containing high doses of antioxidants and hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Retinol to lock in moisture and create a film protection around the skin barrier.
Antioxidants are proven to help calm inflammation, even complexion and brighten dark spots - basically a win, win. Our recommendations?
