Ok, one of the few benefits of the Texas sun. 😉 But this trend isn't about sweating.
How To Achieve Dewy Skin
What is "Dewy Skin?"
Dewy skin—known by other names like "honey skin" or "glass skin"—is skin that looks hydrated, healthy, and glowing. It's the kind of skin that looks like it's been well-cared for, and it radiates a natural beauty. It has definitely become a beauty buzzword thanks to social media.

If you're looking for ways to achieve dewy skin, there are a few things you can do.
Use Hyaluronic Acid in Your Skincare Routine
One of the best ways to achieve dewy skin is to use products that contain hyaluronic acid in your skin care routine. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. It's found in high concentrations in the areas where there is a lot of fluid, such as in the joints and in the eyes.
This substance has many functions, one of which is to bind water and keep it where it's needed in your skin's moisture barrier. When you apply products that contain HA to your skin, they help to keep your skin hydrated and looking plump and healthy.
We love all the products in our hyaluronic line—from the eye gel to the cream to the toner to the serum. (Speaking of, we did a product spotlight on the hyaluronic acid serum not too long ago.) A little pro tip if you're looking to try them all: go for our trio or quad bundle to get more bang for your buck!
Other Ways To Achieve Dewy Skin
In addition to using products that contain hyaluronic acid, there are other ways you can achieve dewy skin. Here are a few tips:
- Drink Plenty of Water
- Use A Humidifier
Adding a humidifier to your home or office helps add moisture to the air and prevents your skin from drying out. This is especially important for those who live in dry air climates such as our Southwestern U.S. friends.
- Avoid Using Harsh, Drying Soaps
Choose a gentle cleanser that won't strip your skin of its natural oils. Signs of skin-stripping include flaky skin, irritation, and redness. If you already tend to have dry skin or sensitive skin, our foaming face washes are a great option because they cleanse without overdoing it.
- Exfoliate Regularly
Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and allows your moisturizer to penetrate more deeply. Just be sure not to overdo it, as this can irritate the skin. Exfoliation is a friend of all skin types, but is especially good for oily skin types in practice. An oily t-zone isn't exactly the same as the dewy glow we're going for here.
- Avoid Hot Showers and Baths
Hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils. Instead, take lukewarm showers and baths or just wash your face with warm water. You'll find it's much easier to harness that dewy complexion.
- Diet Rich in Omega-Fatty Acids
Eating foods that are rich in omega-fatty acids (such as salmon, walnuts, and avocados) can help to keep your skin hydrated. Yep, as we mentioned with drinking water, that healthy glow comes from within. Not only will you enjoy a radiant finish, you'll also be doing a big favor to your bod!
- Moisturize Regularly
This is a no-brainer, but it's worth mentioning! Be sure to moisturize your skin regularly—at least once a day. Of course, we recommend our hyaluronic acid cream because it not only helps to keep your skin hydrated but also plumps and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Apply a Hydrating Face Mask
Using a face mask once or twice a week can help give your skin an extra boost of hydration. We love our clear-complexion face mask because it help clear up skin concerns while still adding that much needed moisture to your complexion.
Amplifying The Dewy Look With Makeup
Of course, taking care of your skin health comes first. But there are some ways to up the anty on that glowy look by using makeup as well. One way is to apply a highlighter to high points on your face for a luminous finish.
We love this Living Luminizer by rms beauty, another clean product company. Apply to places where the sun naturally hits such as the cheekbones, inner eye corners, and underneath the eyebrow. We also like to add a touch on the bridge of the nose and cupid's bow.
