What makes you feel luminous? I feel luminous when I take the time to do my makeup and hair because it’s something I rarely do these days. I feel especially luminous when I wear a dress because I don’t wear them very often. Regardless of what makes you feel luminous, we can all agree that it’s a wonderful feeling, like no other.
The iconic beauty brand, POND’S, wants to help you feel luminous everyday. They have a new line of facial care products appropriately named, Pond’s Luminous. The line includes Wet Cleansing Towelettes, moisturizer and two different cleansers that brighten dull skin. The Towelettes are enriched with moisturizing ingredients and soft white Kaolin clay known to act like a magnet, to gently draw out dirt, makeup and deep-dwelling impurities leaving skin bright and luminous – and I love them!
I have had the pleasure of using all of the products in the POND’S Luminous line and I am very pleased. I honestly don’t use many facial care products regularly but I love the POND’S Luminous products so much that I’ve been using them daily since I received them. The products all have a very light and feminine fragrance and they don’t clog your pores. The newest product in the Pond’s Luminous line is the POND’S Luminous Moisture™ Day Lotion with SPF 15 is enriched with illuminating minerals. It makes my skin so soft and it hasn’t given me any breakouts like some other brands have in the past.
Right now POND’S is partnering with fashion model, actress and new mother, Molly Sims, to help women experience the “luminous effect” that comes with having great skin. Together, they are launching the POND’S 30-Day Luminous Photo Challenge, a 30-day photo sweepstakes featuring daily challenges to inspire you to share photos of your happiest, most radiant moments. Thirty prizes will be awarded so women can live life more luminously. From March 4 through April 2, you can upload pictures to the POND’S Facebook page or share via Twitter or Instagram by using the hashtag #LuminousEffect.
Here are some great tips from Molly for looking luminous:
Picture Perfect: My secret to feeling and looking camera ready starts with radiant skin. I rely on POND’S® Luminous Moisture™ Day Lotion with SPF 15 to brighten dull skin. The new moisturizer is enriched with illuminating minerals and contains SPF 15 that protects against skin-damaging rays.
Nighttime Ritual: I never go to bed without washing my face. As a busy mom, I go for time savers wherever possible. I like a cleanser that both cleanses and removes makeup in one step. POND’S® Luminous Clean™ Wet Cleansing Towelettes gently draws out trapped impurities and makeup to brighten dull skin.
Feed the Glow: I start the day off with a green juice to kick start my morning. It keeps me energized and does wonders for my complexion.
Feel the Burn: Early morning exercise puts color on my cheeks and improves my whole body circulation. A great workout also helps to enhance my skin color and complexion.
Buff Your Way to Beautiful: For great circulation and even tone skin, I recommend exfoliating your face, body and even your lips. It can leave you looking good and feeling radiant in no time.
Find Your Center: Taming stress is important to help you look your luminous best. I use regular breathing exercises to help keep me calm and centered.
Lights, Camera: Every woman can look luminous from within – but great lighting can help, too. One trick I’ve learned before snapping a photo is to step away from overhead lights to avoid shadows on the face.
Glowing Touch: A highlighter is one of my favorite beauty tricks to instantly look healthier and younger. I apply it anywhere that needs a little radiance: under my eyes to minimize dark circles and on the brow bone to draw attention to my eyes.
Lighten Up: When posing for pictures, I make a point to smile big. Your face will light up and you will instantly look and feel luminous.
The complete POND’S Luminous line is available at mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.99 – $5.79. Such a reasonable price for great facial care products!
