For instant dewy skin, place a few drops of fruit or flower based essential oils in the palms of your hands and hold them close to your face.
I have been a big fan of the Bare Escentuals line since it first came out. I was hardly a foundation loyalist, but Bare Escentuals always had me coming back to it. It made my skin GLOW!
