Glowing skin is the best signal of healthy skin. However, sometimes when you are not sleeping enough, or start eating fast food (yes, that hamburger), your radiance can be easily gone. Skin becomes dull and without that healthy shine that every woman likes to see. What you can do? Here are some tips for maintaining glowy skin at home.
Cleansing Your Skin
Cleaning your skin every day is crucial for maintaining not only healthy but also radiant skin. Thoroughly removing debris, oils, and dirt that stays on your skin from morning to evening is what you need to do to keep your skin in good condition.
Pick a face cleanser that is gentle yet effective. Something that you can use in the morning and evening and that will surely remove all the excesses from your face and neck. Use your fingers and move in circular motions.
A Face Massage Can Help
Even when on those days when you are feeling a bit blue and down, a two-minute massage can help. It is a pretty simple procedure. Use your fingertips to massage oil or serum into your skin before applying makeup or other products like moisturizer.
This face stimulation will get your blood moving and affect the look of your complexion. Try this method a few times a week and you will see results, we guarantee.
Regularly Exfoliate Your Skin
Whether you are looking for an instant glow or you would like to provide glowy skin in long term, exfoliation is the key. After exfoliating, your skin is clean from dead skin cells so it reflects light better. Isn’t that great?
You can choose between physical exfoliators such as face scrubs or chemical ones such as face peel. Depending on your skin type you can use it once or two to three times a week.
Brightening Ingredients Are Great
When you are buying skincare products, and you would like glowy skin look for these ingredients. They will brighten and make your skin glow.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that brightens the skin. Niacinamide aka Vitamin B3 should slow pigment production to lighten all those dark spots you have on your face. Applying these ingredients on a daily basis will make your skin glowy and bright. Gymsegbe Luminous Mighty Punch serum is perfect since it combines both of these ingredients.
Try DIY Face Mask
You can always get yourself a spa day, by preparing face masks at home. It is a wonderful idea for everyone who likes to relax but not leave their home. This DIY mask should tighten your pores, hydrate, and exfoliate your face.
½ cup of yogurt
½ cup of mashed strawberries
¼ cup of honey
Mix everything together in a bowl and apply with your fingers. Leave for five minutes and rinse with warm water.
Moisturizer is important even for people with oily skin. Don’t apply it only when you feel your skin is itchy or dry. Apply it daily, morning, and evening, combined with other products from your skincare routine.
Creams and lotions are better in the wintertime when your skin needs just a bit more care and love. You can also use lighter formulations as serums in spring and summer but always apply sunscreen afterward.
Eat Antioxidant-Rich Food
Everything that happens on the face starts with bed and an unhealthy diet. From acne to dull skin - you can cause many things simply by eating fast food and not eating regularly.
Load up on grapes, berries, and nuts, as they are full of antioxidants, polyphenols, and resveratrol. You can incorporate these foods into your daily diet, for breakfast, as snacks, etc.
We all know by now how important is to drink water. It has an effect on our whole organism. Drinking enough water is crucial for skin cell regeneration. Moreover, it is a key to glowy skin. You should try to drink at least eight to 10 cups of unsweetened liquid. It is best to go with water, but you can also drink unsweetened coffee and tea.
