We all want that ‘effortless’ looking skin, but it’s so easy to pile on all the make-up products in the world. However, if you don’t treat your skin at its core, it’ll be impossible to achieve that flawless and healthy looking skin everyone dreams about. Using the right skincare and makeup products are the first steps to achieving a vibrant complexion. Here are our 7 secrets to glowing skin.
1. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is on of the main ingredients in collagen which plays an important role in strong and healthy skin. Vitamine C also has other benefits such as brightening, smoothing effects, and reducing dark spots, while hydrating the skin at the same time. Vitamine C products can come in different forms such a serums or toners, whichever one works best for you, vitamine C will leave your skin looking brighter and more luminous.
One of the best ways to achieve glowing skin fast is to, exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! An exfoliating Face Scrub removes excess dirt and other oils from the skin, while unclogging your pores at the same time. It is important not to exfoliate everyday, as exfoliating too often, can dry out and irritate the skin. We recommend 2 to 3 times per week for that soft and fresh look, because you can’t expect to have glowing skin without removing the sebum on the surface of your skin first. Our Clay And Glow Exfoliating Face Scrub is formulated with fruity ingredients including; melon, jojoba beads and aloe vera to help gently rejuvenate your skin without removing the natural oils.
3. Facial massage
Massaging your face every morning, stimulates blood flow and encourages lymphatic drainage. This practice will help tighten, reduce pore size and depuff the skin, leading to a healthier glow. Facial massages can also relieve soreness and stressed out ares on the face, reducing tension and congestion.
4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
The skin is your body's largest organ, so make sure it's happy and hydrated. Keeping your body smooth and nourished is important for your skins’ health, therefor it is essential to moisturize on a daily basis (yes, even if you have oily skin). Finding the right moisturizer for your skin type can help you achieve that luxurious glow. Using the Clay And Glow Hydrating Moisturizer helps to balance out your skin’s natural oil production, but also protects the skin against damage caused by the environmental influences.
5. Get your beauty sleep
Let’s face it, a puffy and tired face is anything but glowing, however, we’ve all been there! Not getting enough sleep shows up in your skin, so try and get 8 to 9 hours of sleep every night. While you're sleeping, your skin repairs itself by rebuilding collagen levels, increased blood flow, and helps prevent dark under eyes. Try and incorporate overnight beauty treatments before going to bed, as it will help the process along and maintain that glowing complexion.
6. Drink water
Alongside getting enough sleep and eating a clean diet, drinking water is an essential glow-inducing ingredient for your skin. Drinking at least 2 liters of water everyday will flush out toxins from your system restoring new healthy cells, and also keep your skin moisturized. Plain water can get a little boring sometimes, so adding some fruits such as strawberries, lemons, or blueberries can help add some flavour!
7. Use a face mask
A good detoxifying face mask can help boost your skin. The Clay And Glow Pink Clay Mask is a detoxifying treatment, containing pink clay, aloe vera and other amazing ingredients to help remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and hydrate the skin. A face mask is a great pick-me-up for that ultimate GLOW!
