Today we're talking all about getting that dewy skin look 'from within', AKA getting it from your AM skincare routine! And next week we'll be talking about dewy skin using makeup. But, for now, these are the products that take my skin from dull and lacklustre to bouncy and dewy...

Cleanser obviously isn't going to stay on your skin but it's the basis of keeping everything plump and hydrating, so it's important to choose the right one for you. Personally, I love Monday Muse's the Cleanser | £28. This is my perfect creamy-gel that doesn't foam up, so it leaves my skin soft, hydrated and happy after use (never dry!) This cleanser is formulated with ultra-gentle surfactants called glycolipids to effectively cleanse without stripping back your skin's natural moisture levels. It's also formulated with soothing aloe, moisturising hemp seed and sweet almond oils and red algae extract, which is rich in skin-protecting antioxidants. This gentle but effective formula is perfect for setting yourself up for a good skin day. I then follow it up with the Fresh Kombucha Antioxidant Treatment Essence* | £74 (150ml). Fermentation supercharges the antioxidants in this black tea extract, and honestly, I find that kombucha really revitalises my skin when it's looking a bit dry and tired! This Korean-style essence combines this exciting new skincare ingredient (which it formulates at a high percentage; it's the second ingredient in here after water) with a glycerin and hyaluronic acid base to draw moisture into the skin. It also contains antioxidant booster Vitamin E and moisturising rose oil. This formula has weight to it and leaves my skin fresh, juicy and bouncy, without any sticky finish!

Next, we have a product that provides the instant gratification of plump, glowing skin whilst also helping to build these pillars in the long term: the Glow Recipe Pomegranate Peptide Firming Serum* | £43. This is a kind of milky, water-based serum with a base of hydrating glycerin and hyaluronic acid, moisturising and antioxidant-rich pomegranate seed oil, Vitamin E, squalane (a skin-similar plant oil to replenish lost moisture) and two peptides to hydrate and repair the skin (they could even boost up collagen production in the skin, which is what keeps our skin fuller for longer). This is an all-round hydrating, plumping and glow-boosting serum that feels like a good skin day bottled. And my moisturiser is also from the brand that promises us glowing skin, it's the Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream* | £38. This product has my perfect texture for summer; it's a true water-cream that doesn't disappear into nothingness on my dry-leaning skin. It's formulated with multiple molecular weight of hyaluronic acid to pull moisture into multiple layers of your skin. It's also formulated with moisturising, antioxidant-rich plant oils and niacinamide, which can boost ceramide production (improving skin barrier function), regulate oil production in the skin and prevent the spread of discolouration in the skin. Aloe soothes the skin, turmeric provides more antioxidant benefits and jojoba oil provides that satisfying skin softness. It's just a great all-rounder that gives my skin an instant dewy glow but, more importantly, imparts hydration that lasts all day long!

Of course we're going to finish off this glow-boosting AM routine with sunscreen, to protect the skin, keep discolouration at bay and give the skin a dewy look. My pick is the Klairs All-Day Airy Sunscreen SPF 50+ PA++++* | £21 (15% off with code JASMINETALKSBEAUTY (affiliate)). This sunscreen feels like a melting, dewy water-cream that just so happens to also offer the skin the highest broad-spectrum protection possible! It's so lightweight, it doesn't pill, it's super-hydrating (but not greasy) and it's a dream under makeup. These elegant filters never leave a cast on my skin and don't cause me any irritation, plus this is a great price for how wonderful the formula is. It's the perfect final touch to a dewy-look routine because it leaves my skin looking so fresh and healthy!
