Glowing skin—it's the must-have look for the summer. Unless you were born a Hadid, you're probably searching for the secret to that fresh-off-vacation dewy face. Well, we have the answer to 2019's (probably) most asked question: WELLNESS. External beauty begins from within; being mindful of the foods you eat, the exercise you do, and the water you drink is the key to your glow-up. Drinking mineral-rich water is one of the easiest steps you can take towards your glow goals. So, skip the highlighter palette and sign up for a monthly subscription to Flow (we won't clog your pores) and try these tips to attain some serious glow goals.

 

+ Add superfoods to your diet. 

Full of good fats, antioxidants, vitamin C, collagen, and amino acids, superfoods can help you achieve that glow. Avocados, turmeric, salmon, blueberries, bone broth, and lemons are just a few types that can directly benefit your skin.

 

+ Bend it with yoga. 

The forward-bending Uttanasana pose can promote blood flow to the face, making it one of the best yoga poses for glowing and healthy skin. It can also increase oxygen supply to skin cells, encouraging skin rejuvenation.

 

+ Include vitamin C serum in your skincare routine.

Not only does it brighten and even your complexion, but vitamin C can also help fade dark spots caused by the sun. It can even help minimize redness caused by sunburn!

 

+ Goodnight, cotton pillowcase.

Switch up your sleep routine by replacing your cotton pillowcase with a silk one. Silk pillowcases are less likely to absorb moisture from the skin, leaving you looking fresh and hydrated in the morning.

 

+ Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

Summer heat can cause dehydration, which reflects in your skin. Flow’s naturally-occurring minerals and electrolytes are super hydrating and will give you that summer glow.
