how to get naturally glowing skin
All we’re ever looking for is clear, healthy, glowing skin. Is that too much to ask for? If you’re not willing to religiously take care of skin and body, then yes, it is. Your skin is your body’s largest organ and so deserves some TLC. The good news, though, is that just by making a few tweaks in your skin care routine and lifestyle, you can see major differences in your skin health. The other piece of good news is that we have just the right combo of products for you to get glowing skin that is healthy inside out, in no time.
What Causes Glowing Skin?
The health of your skin is what causes it to naturally glow… or not. Things like poor diet, lack of sleep, stress can cause havoc to your skin. On the other hand, drinking tons of water, working out regularly, taking care of your gut health and choosing a skin care routine, with products that are suited to your skin type, will reflect as glowing skin.
Glowing skin can be achieved by improving cell renewal, promoting blood circulation, and removing dead skin cells and debris from the skin’s dermal layer. By choosing the right products, paired with a healthy lifestyle, this can be quite easily achieved. Two important steps in your skin care routine for glowing skin are exfoliation and wearing sunscreen.
Why is Exfoliation Important?
Clogged pores are your skin’s enemy as it can result in breakouts, acne and sensitisation. Regular exfoliation helps to remove dead cells, debris, dirt, makeup and other pollutant elements that settle on your skin. In the long run, it also helps boost the production of collagen, which is another secret to naturally glowing skin.
The Dermalogica bestselling Daily Microfoliant is a gentle exfoliant that is suitable for all skin types and can be used every day. The rice-based powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to polish the skin to perfection. A skin brightening complex of Phytic Acid from Rice Bran, White Tea and Licorice helps balance uneven skin tone, while a super-soothing blend of Colloidal Oatmeal and Allantoin helps calm skin. The result is brighter, smoother, naturally glowing skin.
The Importance of Sunscreen
We can’t tell you enough -- sunscreen needs to be applied by everyone of every skin type, every day, whether indoors or outdoors. There are different types of sunscreen and they provide many benefits, such as protecting your skin from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays and from the blue light from your mobile and laptop screen, and acts as a barrier to harm caused by external environmental assault. Sunscreen can also provide your skin with hydration and moisturisation, and if you choose the right one, help boost your skin’s natural luminosity. Like the Dermalogica Prisma Protect.
Prisma Protect is a light-activated multitasking moisturiser, which provides broad-spectrum defence, while preventing future signs of skin damage. Intelligent drone technology is activated by visible light to help boost the skin’s natural luminosity. Breakthrough antioxidant technology helps protect the skin against pollution.
