Skin is the canvas where the traces of years, experience, mistreatment, neglecting, bad diet and other influences are reflected. That’s why it demands special care and attention. Attaining desired radiant glow is never easy, but it’s not impossible. Skin radiance comes from both inside and outside.
To achieve the best and lasting results, you’ll have to change some habits from the roots, build skincare routine and, if needed, change your nutrition. Don’t worry, there is still time to do that, start with the new practice this guideline will recommend first thing in the morning and don’t give up. You’ll be amazed with the results.
Glowing inside out
As mentioned above, healthy diet makes half of smooth and youthful skin. By eating certain foods, you can achieve perhaps even better results than with skincare products.
Nutrient that are rich with omega-3 fatty acids supply your skin with oils that can reduce inflammation and thus prevent acne, redness and scaly skin. Trout, salmon and herring are the best fishes for the job.
Foods with Vitamin C (kiwi, lemon, orange, tomato) stimulates collagen production and protects skin against wrinkles. The extra treat is dark chocolate which is helping your skin stay soft and hydrated. Speaking of hydration, it is crucial that you drink at least 2 liters of water (non-carbonated) per day, and sometimes even more.
Developing healthy skincare routine is one of the most important steps to take to achieve wanted results. This means you need to wash your face regularly, especially before going to bed. Use makeup remover, gentle soap and only then rinse with water. Remove excess oil with toner and then apply moisturizer.
Make it a habit to exfoliate once a week in order to remove excess skin cells. You can make your own exfoliator or buy trusted product in a store. To keep your skin youthful, protect it from the sun, by applying sunscreen every time you are going outside.
If you are following these steps you already have glowing skin which needs just a bit more shine. For that, you can use woman’s most trusted tool – makeup.
Start the beautifying process with a primer to create a hydrated and smooth surface. Next, even out the tan with foundation (choose it based on your tan and skin type). If needed, cover spots (acne, redness) with concealer. Lock it all in with powder and accentuate cheekbones with blush or bronzer. Add an extra touch with nude or peach shade lip gloss. The results will be astonishing!
Soft pencil or eyeliner can be very effective solution if you want to highlight your eyes. You can apply the standard one or opt foreyeliner tattoo. However, for evening plans, you’ll need to try a little harder to make your skin glow and cheekbones pop, perhaps do some highlighting and contouring, and you are just few strokes of a makeup brush away from the Hollywood diva look.
There is no reason to have dull and dry skin if you can make it radiant. Where filet of salmon can’t help and exfoliating is just scratching the surface, some primer, foundation and blush will do the trick.
