7 Ways To Make Your Skin Glow
I bet you want to know how to boost that glow without paying for any super expensive products or treatments. Well it's funny you should ask, we’ve put together 8 of the best ways to get your skin looking better than ever, you can thank us later.
1. DRINK & EAT YOUR WAY
Dehydration causes wrinkles & dry skin, you need to be drinking around 2 litres of water each day to ensure your body can function efficiently & keep your skin clear. As much fresh veg & fruit each day will do wonders for that glow-factor so load up, every meal should include 2 portions of veg/fruit. Oily fish like salmon is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids & vitamins which are great for your skin.
Give your face a gentle massage once or twice a week, it may sound silly but stimulating the skin wakes it up, increasing blood flow & collagen production which all helps keep fine lines at bay. Gently massage with a cleansing oil, make sure it’s slippery & focus on the cheeks, jaw & forehead using an upward motion to lift the face.
3. THE ROUTINE
You don’t need a barrel full of products to get that glow but you do need a daily routine & you've got to stick to it. You should be cleansing twice a day, morning & night and no, wipes don't count. We’re talking a good quality non-drying natural cleanser that works for you along with a gentle exfoliator. Get into the routine and stick with it to ramp up the glow factor.
4. IN THE SHEETS
Sheet masks are making a big comeback right now and rightly so, they help to trap moisture in the skin by covering the face. Choose as natural as possible and treat yourself once a week right after exfoliating for a serious moisture boost
5. SUN PROTECTION
Environmental factors like air pollution & the sun can cause real damage to your skin on a daily basis. Exposure to the sun’s UVA & UVB rays is one of the biggest culprits in ageing your skin & making it look dull. You should be wearing at least factor 30 every single day, choose a lightly tinted SPF 30 lotion that isn’t too oily and include it in your daily routine, you can thank us later.
6. LONG BATHS
Not so fast, long hot baths & showers can strip the natural oils from your skin leaving it dry & dull, not good news for the glow-factor. Make sure you replenish lost moisture with a natural face oil or moisturiser, the more the better so layer it on. Dry skin will age, crack & itch, keep your skin well oiled & protected at every opportunity for that gorgeous glow.
7. SWEAT IT
Raising your heart-rate each day & getting sweaty not only helps to control your weight but can also help flush out your skin from the inside out. Do a workout just before you shower to help sweat-out toxins, unclog your pores & clear your skin for a super glow.
