The quest for brighter skin isn’t a new one. For decades women (and men!) have sought treatments and products that give the impression of flawless, radiant skin. After all, a natural glow is an indicator of good health – making it attractive to others and something to be coveted. Most recently we have seen the rise of highlighter, a makeup product that literally highlights your face with glittery powder… but can you make your skin brighter without makeup? The answer is yes, and here’s how.


We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Exfoliating is an important part of your skincare routine. It removes the dead skin cells that build up on the surface of your skin, and reveals the younger, brighter skin underneath. Not only does exfoliating regularly keep your skin glowing, it assists in stimulating the production of new cells and collagen. To get brighter skin without makeup, you should be aiming to exfoliate once or twice a week at home, with a monthly microdermabrasion for good measure.

Try our 6 Steps to Shine Microdermabrasion as an introduction to this skincare staple, only $63 per treatment at any Australian Skin Clinics. It’s the perfect ‘glow and go’ treatment, only 20 minutes per appointment.


We all know that exercise is good for our health, but did you know it’s good for your skin too? The reason for this is increased circulation, which delivers more oxygen and nutrients to your skin cells. On top of this, exercise helps to remove toxins and waste products away from the skin… so strap on those joggers and say hello to your new glow!

Choose the right jewellery

This tip might sound simple but choosing the right type of jewellery for your skin tone can really make your complexion pop! According to professional jewellers, yellow gold is particularly striking on tanned or warmer skin tones and also pairs well with stones such as amber, citrine, sunstone and turquoise. Whereas lighter, cooler skin tones work well with silver, white gold and stones such as sapphire, ruby or rose quartz. So forget makeup, adorn your beautiful self with a new piece of jewellery and enjoy the way it makes your skin glow!

Take your skin to the gym

We already spoke about physical exercise for brighter skin, but it also pays to give your skin a workout with a facial massage every once in a while, to really maximise your natural glow. We recommend the Australian Skin Clinics Hydra-Infusion skin treatment, which starts with a deep cleanse using our active skin resurfacing complex, which is followed by exfoliation for skin renewal. You will then experience a nice, hydrating facial steam to prepare the skin for treatment. A HA B5 serum is soothingly massaged into your skin, offering lymphatic drainage to the area, and is followed by a luxurious and hydrating face mask.
