Get the Glow: 5 Tips to Skin that Glows

Many people seek out glowing skin, to help look and feel great. But with so many skincare products on the market and advice being offered around the best skincare routines to use, trying to achieve glowing skin can seem a bit overwhelming. Here are 5 steps that should help you to get the glow effectively:

Regularly Cleanse

Your skin needs to be regularly cleaned to remove oil and pollution particles that can cause the pores on your skin to clog up, and also be a reason for skin dullness. The recommendation is to wash your face morning and night with a small amount of moisturiser, using your fingers, moving them with a circular motion.

Exfoliate

A way to brighten the skin over the long term is to keep exfoliating. It’s a beneficial process because it removes the skin’s outer layer of dead cells making the skin smoother and clearer. You can use an exfoliant such as a face scrub 2 or 3 times a week, or a face peel once per week if you have sensitive or dry skin, and up to 3 times for other skin types.

Look for Products with Brightening Properties

It is a good idea to see what you are getting in a product. To do this, study the packaging. See if terms such as “brightening” and “skin tone-evening” are used, this could be what you are looking for. Also see if a product contains vitamin C, as this vitamin acts as an antioxidant that brightens the skin by blocking an enzyme that produces pigment.

Keep Hydrated

Lack of hydration is not good for the body and this includes your skin. If your skin lack hydration it will result in a dull complexion and could even speed up the process of wrinkles appearing.

To combat this, you could apply a topical moisturiser, morning and evening to replenish hydration. It is suggested that face lotions and creams are generally more hydrating than oils or serums and other formulas. And of course, remembering to drink water is always a plus for hydration and your skin.

Try a Shimmery Lotion

This method can be used as a fast way to get that glow! A recent addition to skincare ranges is what has been dubbed “glotions”. These are products designed to give the user the hydrating benefits of a moisturiser and the radiance-improving effects of a highlighter. Have a look and see if you can find a range you like, with ingredients that will help your skin to glow.

You do not necessarily have to put in loads of work to have skin that glows, just find some products and a routine that works for you it may be a bit trial and error at first but you will get there in the end!
