Wouldn’t it be great if instead of leaving lockdown in a dehydrated mess, we left with skin that glows with sheer radiance? Here’s everything you need to know to achieve that much sought-after luminosity.
1. For Skin That Glows, Drink The H20
Our bodies are made up of mostly water – it’s kind of essential. Depriving ourselves of this vital ingredient leads to everything dulling down. One of the best ways to keep that beautiful luminosity is to stay hydrated. Simple.
2.Double-Cleanse And Glow (While You Have The Time). Try Oskia’s Perfect Cleanser, £35 (125ml), www.cultbeauty.co.uk, and Mineral Cleanser Balm, £10.99 (50ml),www.bebarefaced.com
Ever thought about the K-beauty trend and decided it is too much effort? Now’s the time to put it in place. You will be amazed at how much difference this technique actually makes towards achieving a glowing complexion.
3. Hyaluronic Acid (That Key Skincare Ingredient), Try The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid, £5.90, www.cultbeauty.co.uk
Yes, I’m mentioning it again – for good reason; it works. This wonder component will ensure your skin retains so much moisture. More moisture means a healthy, plump, and radiant luminosity you will adore!
4.SPF (That Other Key Ingredient For Skin Luminosity). Try: SkinCeuticals Mineral Radiance UV Defense SPf 50, £41, www.skinceuticals.co.uk
A good SPF is vital for keeping your skin protected and happy. I love SkinCeuticals Mineral Radiance Defense. Should you want skin that glows, this 100% mineral formula nourishes and protects whilst offering utter luminosity. Result!
5.Vitamin C Serum: Try Hero Project Glow Drops Dry Touch Facial Oil + Vitamin C, £19 (30ml), www.lookfantastic.com
Vitamin C is well-known for its skin-saving abilities. Protection from free radical damage, skin repair and rejuvenation are high up on this gem’s resume. Since trying Hero Glow Drops some time ago, I remain a firm fan! If you haven’t yet tried this, give it a go. You will love it.
6.Astaxanthin: Try DHC Astaxanthin Collagen All-in-One Gel, $40, www.dhcare.com
Astaxanthin is one of those components of which not many people are aware. Yet studies have proven this to be one of those hero components that can thwart the signs of aging whilst helping you to maintain that much-desired glow. It is 6000 times more powerful than vitamin C and 560 times more potent than vitamin E in combatting those pesky free radicals. If you are on the lookout for a new moisturiser, check out this amazing formula by DHC. #skinthatglows
7.Clean Up Your Act (As in Your Makeup Arsenal)
If you knew JUST how much bacteria are writhing around on your FOREO or makeup brushes and bag, you may never go near them again. Seriously people, now is not the time to put it off. Give your makeup bag, brushes, and tools a clean. You may as well, everything else is right now!
8.Antioxidant Night Serum For Glowing Skin: Try Beuti Sleep Elixir, £47, www.beutiskincare.com
Love this, love this, and love this some more. Loaded with plant extracts, this highly nourishing serum is cherished by royalty (and me) for a VERY good reason. Your complexion will reap the rewards, believe me. Think reduced inflammation and redness, and skin that glows!
9. Face Polish: Try Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish, £50.94, www.facethefuture.co.uk
I have used this facial scrub for several years and I am still as smitten as the day I first tried it. Combining glycolic acid, papaya extract, and professional-grade crystals, this superior formula resurfaces, refines, and provides outstanding luminosity. Get glowing people!
10. Regularly Use Retinol or Retinoid Product: Beginners Try The Ordinary: 5`% Granactive Retinoid + Squalene, £11.90 (30ml), www.cultbeauty.co.uk
Should you be a retinol newbie or have very sensitive skin, this retinol option may work better. Containing 5% Granactive Retinoid + Squalene, it works on uneven skin tone and fine lines whilst providing a gorgeous hydrated glow. Just remember, this product is for long-term usage.
