Winter Skincare: Day 6 – Bright and Glowing Skin with MONU

If you haven’t heard of MONU before, then now is the perfect chance to find out more about this natural skincare brand with lovely products for all skin types. We’ve asked them to share their best tips for using their Primer and getting skin glowing this Winter.

5 Steps to Glowing Winter Skin

We at MONU strive to help your skin look younger and feel healthier, no matter what the weather. Follow these simple skincare tips and tricks to banish a dull complexion and get that wonderful Winter glow in no time!

  1. Simple Skincare

    Keeping up a good regular skincare regime may seem like the obvious solution when it comes to keeping your skin fresh, but it’s advice that many of us forget to follow when faced with hectic work and social schedules.

    Cleansing and toning the skin may seem like a chore following a day on the go, however it takes just a matter of minutes and your complexion is sure to reap the rewards. Use something like the MONU Gentle Cleanser to leave skin free of impurities, with every trace of make-up is dissolved.

    Follow this with a toner to remove any residue and brighten the skin. Cleansing and toning in the Winter months is key to ensure skin remains nourished and conditioned in the harsher environment.

  2. Exfoliate

    Exfoliating 3-4 times a week with MONU Micro Exfoliant will help keep skin looking refined and refreshed throughout the Winter.

    Cell renewal is stimulated to ensure skin looks fresh, smooth and blemish-free, banishing dull skin tones and lacklustre complexions in an instant.

  3. Moisturise

    During the Winter it’s important to replace lighter summer moisturisers with a richer alternative.

    Thicker moisturisers help dull-looking skin come back to life, retaining moisture and remaining hydrated when exposed to cold weather and harsh conditions.

    Try something like the Moisture Rich Collagen Cream or the lovely Recovery Balm that was in the November Beauty Box.

  4. Brighten and Balance

    Using a serum prior to moisturiser application will boost overall skin health, creating a more radiant complexion. We recommend MONU Brightening Boost serum to revitalise the complexion, resulting in sheer skin luminosity.

    Brightening Boost is the ideal product to introduce into any skincare regime during the Winter to combat signs of premature ageing whilst smoothing surface imperfections and plumping fine lines for a more youthful appearance.

  5. Highlight and Illuminate

    Finally, guarantee that Winter glow and ensure your makeup stays in place from morning to night with MONU Illuminating Primer SPF15.

    Using a unique blend of active ingredients including Mica, Zinc Oxide and Cassia Leaf Extract, Illuminating Primer instantly reduces the appearance of blemishes and imperfections to create a lasting radiant glow.
