Hydrate for glowing skin
Gorgeous skin starts from within. Hydration is key to giving skin a natural glow. Have you ever noticed that when you drink alcohol or caffeinated drinks frequently, the skin can begin to look dull and lackluster? Cut back on beverages that can cause the skin to look dull and start implementing more hydrating foods and drinks into your diet.
Cucumber and watermelon are full of water, which can help keep you hydrated. Drinking plenty of water can also help the skin look more lively and hydrated. Infuse your water with lemon, cucumber, mint, or fruit slices for added flavor and skin-loving benefits.
Highly effective hydrating ingredients also work to keep the skin hydrated externally. Hyaluronic Acid, known as nature’s “moisture magnet,” delivers intense moisture, infusing skin with healthy hydration. Hyaluronic Acid is especially beneficial for dry skin. Look for clean products with vegan Hyaluronic Acid. Another effective ingredient that works to hydrate is Panthenol. Also known as ProVitamin B5, this essential ingredient is extremely hydrating and keeps skin conditioned and healthy-looking.
Exfoliate for glowing skin
In order to see beautiful glowing skin, you must first remove dead, dull skin. As we age, it takes longer for the body to naturally shed dead skin, making it essential to use an effective exfoliant to eliminate dead skin that sits on the skin’s surface.
Exfoliants can be categorized into a few different forms. There are chemical exfoliants, physical exfoliants, and mechanical exfoliants. Physical exfoliants are granular scrubs that are applied and buffed on the skin. Chemical exfoliants help to dissolve dead skin cells, and mechanical exfoliants use exfoliating brushes or machines to remove dead skin.
Dead sea salt is an effective ingredient to look for in physical exfoliants. This salt helps exfoliate and buff away dead skin. Dead Sea Salt scrubs also provide detoxifying benefits for the skin, leaving it feeling smooth and rejuvenated.
Chemical exfoliants refer to the way the dead skin is removed and not the ingredients being actual chemicals. Examples of chemical exfoliants include citric acid, alpha hydroxy acids, fruit enzymes, and salicylic acid. All of these ingredients can work to remove dead skin cells chemically.
The best serums and moisturizers and techniques for glowing skin
Serums and moisturizers that help hydrate and brighten work best for achieving glowing skin. The lightweight oils found in serums can help to deeply nourish the skin for a natural, healthy glow.
Moisturizers work to hydrate and nourish, and smooth the skin, allowing for year-round hydration that gives a summer glow in any season.
For uneven skin, dark spots, or dull skin, serums and moisturizers with skin-brightening ingredients like stabilized Vitamin C, Turmeric, Mineral Mica, Probiotics, and Rooibos are very potent in helping to brighten the look of skin.
For dry or lackluster skin, ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Pycnogenol, and Panthenol help achieve a more hydrated, glowing complexion.
The best technique to achieve glowing skin is to apply your serum on damp skin after washing and toning, then applying your moisturizer once the serum is absorbed into the skin.
