We all want a beautiful glowing skin, but let’s face it, to achieve that sought-after “glow” all year-round, we need to work and spend a lot. In more ways than one, we all think that beauty products are the only solution to this old-age dilemma. Scroll down to see a list of routines and regimes that can help you get that ‘glow’ without breaking your pockets.
Tips To Achieve The Glowing, Healthy Skin You Always Wanted
Dead skin can definitely make your skin look dull and lifeless, then add big pores to the equation and it will result in a beauty mess. To clear out the dirt, start exfoliating regularly with daily applications of salicylic and glycolic acid. You can throw in a cleansing system to soften and smooth skin, and clear the dead surface cells. Use a body scrub at least once a week on your entire body, especially arms and legs.
Prioritize Eating Healthy
A glowing skin is a good sign that you are a healthy person. But, some of us often neglect this aspect due to our busy schedules and devil-may-care attitude. Smoking, drinking and eating unhealthy foods can cause various skin problems and dull skin. Reverse these bad habits and start by planning a healthy diet meal while working on re-hydrating your body. There are tons of great foods available – think farm-fresh, super-ripe fruits and veggies, and healthy fats. Unfortunately, there are people who don’t enjoy the taste of fruits and vegetables and if you’re one of them, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you cannot have that glowing skin you always wanted. Take Vitamin E-enriched supplements to keep your skin healthy and smooth.
Don’t Compromise A Good Night Sleep
I know this sounds like a broken record, but sleep is very important. Sleep deprivation lowers circulation making you look pale, tired and washed out. A good beauty sleep allows your skin to rejuvenate. At least seven hours a night is needed if you’re asking how to get that glowing skin. You can also take a power nap and try closing your eyes for five minutes and relax your mind.
Get Your Skin Stash In Proper Order
The sequence in which you apply your products is also vital in having a glowing skin. Start with the most active ingredients as soon as you wash and pat skin dry. Remember that anything that is water soluble should go first, followed by the product that’s thicker and creamier. If you do it the other way, the heavier cream will block the ingredients of the lighter one from penetrating the skin, so they won’t have any impact. Next up in line is the moisturizer, followed by a sunscreen each morning.
