How to look radiant on a dull day

13th Aug 2012

It's never been easier to feel gorgeous, whatever the weather...

Have you ever looked out of the window on a cloudy day and felt like you had a complexion to match the dreary atmosphere? A dull day doesn't meet you need to look and feel dull as well; it's actually pretty easy to put a little spring in your step and feel on top of the world – even if spring itself isn’t quite here yet.

So what are the best ways to go about looking radiant on a dull day? Goodness, I thought you'd never ask! I have five oh-so simple tips to trick yourself into thinking it’s one pretty amazing day.


TIP TO LOOK RADIANT #1: a long hot bath
On a grey or cold day, it's important to lift your spirits by taking part in one of life's little luxuries. A long hot bath in the morning can assist in making you feel calmed and rejuvenated, readying you for the day - whatever it may bring. Adding nourishing Body Scrub like DHC Olive-Corn Body Scrub, with their essential oils and added vitamin E can make your skin feel all sorts of supple.

TIP TO LOOK RADIANT #2: a touch of sun
Nothing can make you feel as average on a day of the same description as a total lack of summer glow. If a fake tan feels too obvious in the colder weather, opt for a nourishing body moisturiser with a touch of self tan. This way you can build up the golden hue until you're happy with your glow. We love Palmer's Natural Bronze Tan Lotion for an all-over subtle tan.

TIP TO LOOK RADIANT #3: a blow-dry
There's nothing like a little rain to properly mess up any 'do you were thinking of trying with your locks. If you're feeling a little less than radiant, why not pop down to your nearest salon and treat yourself to a professional blow dry with styling product like KMS FreeShape Quick Blow Dry to ensure no weather messes with your mop?

TIP TO LOOK RADIANT #4: your favourite frock
On a day when you're not feeling your most delectable, do away with your normal day-to-day ensembles and whip out your favourite frock. You know, the one that nips in at all the right places and makes you feel like a superstar? It's a sure fire way to feel your very best, whatever the weather.

TIP TO LOOK RADIANT #5: a brilliant bold hue
Ever wake up, look in the mirror and spy a rather beige, colourless complexion staring back at you? Yeah, it's enough to make you want to hide inside all day, right? Well you'll be happy to know that you're just a swipe away from unleashing your inner goddess. Simply choose a bright red lipstick, or a bold eyeshadow and be ready to receive compliments by the bucketful all day long. We recommend DHC Moisture Care Liquid Lipcolor in Barbados Blush and award winning DHC Eyelash Tonic.
