Everyone loves that look of naturally glowing skin, but not everyone thinks that they can have it. Whether your skin is dry, dull or in need of an overall boost, there are simple changes and additions you can make to your skin care routine to foster the look of glowing skin. You won’t have to spend a ton of time sun bathing – in fact, you shouldn’t do so even if you have the time. Glowing skin simply requires a little focused attention and dedication to a radiant skin care routine. Foster glowing skin and become one step closer to a radiant complexion by keeping these glowing skin tips in mind.
Glowing skin tip #1: Wear SPF daily. Glowing skin is protected skin and the best way to protect its integrity is to apply SPF every day. Sun damage can result in the form of sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles and even sagging skin as UVA can damage your skin’s collagen and elastin fibers. Look for a day cream with SPF broad spectrum protection like Age Perfect® Glow Renewal SPF 30 Lotion and apply it thirty minutes before sun exposure so that it has enough time to fully absorb.
Glowing skin tip #2: Cleanse and exfoliate with glycolic acid. Glycolic acid can help improve the look of your skin’s tone and texture. The cane sugar derivative works to loosen dead cells on your skin’s surface; promoting newer, younger skin underneath to be revealed. Simultaneously, glycolic acid’s exfoliating process also makes it easier to wash away any sweat and oil that may have built up on the surface of your skin. To achieve and maximize this effect, try RevitaLift® Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Scrub Cleanser formulated with glycolic acid. Then, follow up with a gentle glycolic acid chemical exfoliation method like RevitaLift® Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads to help encourage brighter, clarified and more radiant skin.
Glowing skin tip #3: Apply a clay mask. To get the look of glowing skin consider applying a clay mask with an exfoliating and refining formula like Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refining Treatment Mask. This nourishing clay mask formula is infused with apricot seed powder, which provides exfoliating properties to help clear your skin’s surface of dead skin cells and minimize the potential of unwanted clogged pores and breakouts. To avoid over-drying, apply the mask for ten minutes and then lather and rinse away with warm water.
Glowing skin tip #4: Look for a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid. Now that your pores are clear and the surface of your skin is clean, you’ll be ready to replenish your skin with moisture. Hydrated skin can give off a glowing effect compared to dry skin that just looks dull. One skin-hydrating ingredient to look for in moisturizers and serums is hyaluronic acid. Moisturizers like Revitalift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid will deeply hydrate skin and help it hold on to that moisture throughout your day. Even more so, hyaluronic acid is also proven to rapidly surge skin with moisture and deter the formation of wrinkles. Formulated with hyaluronic acid with Pro-XylaneTM, L’Oreal’s exclusive anti-aging super ingredient, Revitalift Triple PowerTM provides long-term benefits, like increased skin elasticity, which results in firmer, younger-looking skin.
Glowing skin tip #5: Seal in moisture with facial oil. A great way to encourage glowing skin is to seal in added moisture with facial oil. Facial oil can act as a barrier when applied after your serum or moisturizer to keep hydrating ingredients in place on your skin and damaging stressors out. Lightweight formulas, like Age Perfect® Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil SPF 30, that are enriched with essential oils can deliver the skin’s surface long-lasting hydration and comfort. This formula also offers broad-spectrum protection to help neutralize harmful free-radicals and UV rays present in the environment.
Glowing skin tip #6: Highlight with moisturizer. Apply moisturizer, instead of a highlighter, to your cheekbones, under your brow, on your nose and forehead. Applying moisturizer as a highlighter will provide a dewy, but not shiny, complexion leaving behind the look of glowing skin.
Glowing skin tip #7: Drink water and eat smart. Choose water over soda at lunch and try to replace your morning cup of joe with a glass of water too. Staying hydrated will help keep your body and skin looking better. A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, nuts and avocado, can help foster youthful-looking, glowing skin when eaten regularly. The good fats in these foods can help reinforce the skin’s natural lipid barrier; hydrating and lubricating the skin from the inside, out. Also, eating foods rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants can also help your skin maintain a healthy-looking glow, try incorporating mangoes, papaya, strawberries and kale into your diet.
Glowing skin tip #8: Remember to fit in exercise. Encourage the look of naturally glowing skin by working out for at least thirty minutes a day. A quick work out will encourage blood circulation so that your skin has a natural glow, plus working up a sweat will help rid your skin of collected toxins. Try jumping rope, taking your dog for a long walk or trying a yoga class.
Glowing skin tip #9: Try to get enough rest. Your skin, like your mind and body, will need to regroup and recover from the day. Try going to bed 15 minutes earlier each night for one week. Tired skin tends to look dull. Add an extra glowing skin boost to your beauty sleep by trying an overnight mask like RevitaLift® Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Mask so that you can wake up with the appearance of radiant skin.
Glowing skin tip #10: Highlight with self-tanner. Encourage glowing, radiant skin by applying a self-tanner with SPF to your skin before you spend any time in the sun. Try a formula for your face like Sublime Bronze™ Summer Express Wash-Off Face Bronzer Cream SPF 20,which is non-comedogenic; meaning it is formulated so it won’t clog your pores. It can be worn alone or under makeup and provides natural-looking glowing skin with weightless coverage. Look for a non-greasy, lightweight formula for your body like Sublime Bronze Summer Express Wash-Off Body and Makeup Lotion, its silky smooth texture provides full coverage to your body and won’t leave behind a sticky residue, so it will dry streak-free.
Glowing skin is not something to only admire – you can have it too! Foster glowing skin by taking care of yourself, choosing the right skin care products and by following the best skin care routine for glowing skin.
