Regardless of beauty trends, a glowing, clear complexion is often considered the skin holy grail but attaining healthy skin means more than choosing the right skincare products – sleep, diet, exercise and stress management are also key.
How can I make my skin clear and glowing?
Getting a complexion that permanently looks as though your fresh off vacation is a combination of product, practice, and patience.
Here’s our top tips on how to achieve glowing skin from the inside and out
If you have oily skin and are prone to breakouts, make sure that you're cleansing your face twice a day. Once in the morning, once in the evening.
Exfoliate your skin.
Exfoliating two to three times a week is great for your skin, but anymore and you can risk compromising your skin's barrier function.
Hydrate & protect
Skin looking and feeling thirsty? Applying a moisturiser or serum that is rich in hyaluronic acid will help to dial up your glow.
Look for brightening skincare ingredients
Vitamin helps brighten skin by blocking an enzyme known as tyrosinase, which is responsible for speeding up melanin production that leads to those dark spots
Moisturise skin regular - An essential in any skincare routine (no matter what your skin type) moisturising maintains hydration levels and helps to support the skin's barrier.
For a fast fix try a face mask
If you are suffering from a dulling complexion that needs an instant pick-me-up, a face mask is a quick way to solve it. Offering hydration, nourishment and treatment, face masks are formulated with specific ingredients for each skin type, to tackle any concerns and enhance your glow
Give your face a massage
If you're feeling blah, a two-minute face massage can help you look alive in the short term, as well as firm and contour over time
Apply your skincare in the right order
The sequence in which you apply your products could be even more important than the products themselves. As a general rule of thumb, apply your products in this order: cleanser, toner, treatment/mask, serum, eye cream, moisturiser, oil, SPF
Get your beauty sleep
While you sleep, your skin works to repair itself, so if you are suffering from breakouts, dehydration or dullness, it's during the night that your skin will revive and rejuvenate.
Hydrate from the inside out
Water is perhaps the most important and glow-inducing ingredient for your skin. Keeping your cells hydrated from the inside helps to keep them healthy and prevents dullness and fatigue.
