We hear all the time about achieving radiant skin. But what exactly do we mean when we say someone has radiant skin?
Whilst there is no technical definition of skin radiance, we all know when someone has it. They look happy and healthy and appear to be radiant. Basically, we associate radiant skin with glowy, healthy, well-rested skin.
On the flip side, when skin is dull, dry and dehydrated it lacks radiance.
The good news is, getting the glow, when your cheeks are brighter, more luminous, and skin looks lit from within and radiant is totally achievable with a few tweaks to your skin care routine.
Here are some simple steps to boost your skin radiance…
Add an exfoliator to your skincare routine
Our clever skin is constantly renewing itself. It takes about 28 days for new skin cells to move from the deeper layers to the top layers of our skin. At the end of the 28 days, the skin surface cells are dead and ready to be shed. The problem is that they don’t always come off but instead, build up quickly, inhibit light reflection, cause roughness, and preventing your skin from absorbing all the benefits from your serums and moisturisers. The buildup of old surface cells also gives your skin a dull, grey tone - anything but radiant!
Using an exfoliator will remove the build up of dry, dead skin cells and day- to day grime that sit on the skin. Once they are removed, the fresh new radiant cells are able to shine! Adding a gentle exfoliator to your skincare routine once a week is a simple way to lift away dead skin cells and boost skin radiance
Now we aren’t talking about drinking more orange juice! Vitamin C is well known for its radiant skin boosting and brightening properties when used in skincare. After regular use of a vitamin C product, you will most definitely have that radiant glow.
Dull and lacklustre skin often lacks a bit of moisture. Once you’ve exfoliated and cleansed, layer on a good hydrating moisturiser. A good hydrating moisturiser will lock moisture into your skin keeping the cells plump, happy and hydrated.
Glowing and radiant skin is not just for a lucky few who have been blessed with good genes. With just a few skincare tweaks radiant skin will soon be yours.
Let’s be honest, radiant skin doesn’t come without a little bit of effort. It comes from a good, consistent skincare routine. If you properly cleanse, and follow up with a good moisturiser, you will be well on your way to getting glowing, radiant skin.
Adding in a serum and a weekly exfoliating will boost skin radiance even further.
Finally, step up your exercise
Yep, that’s right, exercise can help improve skin’s circulation, giving your skin that glowing and radiant look.
So there you have it. With a few tweaks, radiant and glowing skin will be yours before you know it!
