Isn’t it every woman’s quest to enjoy gorgeous glowing skin? No matter your age, no matter origin, nothing beats having a beautiful natural radiance about you.
Yet, this elusive accessory seems impossible to achieve.
Be it stress, be it lifestyle – there always seems to be something in the way of you obtaining an infamous glow. But what if the secret wasn’t all that illusory?
Alas, these ten steps could be considered the secret to achieving the natural glow you’ve been searching for. And yes, they are approved by skincare experts.
Let’s not sugar coat it. The true secret to glowing skin? Hydration. You can invest a lifetime of wealth into specialist skincare products but if your skin is dehydrated from the inside, it’ll show. Drinking water not only helps your major organs and gives you energy, but it hydrates the skin cells and gives you a plump, natural glow.
World-renowned naturopathic doctor, Dr Nigma Talib knows skin. And she can identify exactly what you’re eating too much of by looking at your appearance. Be it dairy, be it sugar – she knows. Diary, sugar, alcohol, and gluten all have their issues. But if you want to guarantee a glow, eat the rainbow. A varied, nutrient-rich diet will always show in your skin.
Your highly adored cup of coffee in the morning might make you feel more awake, but it’s doing absolutely nothing for your skin. If you want glowing skin, take it from celebrity facialist Abigail James – cutting out the caffeine helps. The skin is clearer, brighter, and there’s a natural, healthier glow then caffeine is cut down. And yes, that includes tea and fizzy drinks.
Who doesn’t love a well deserved mid-week wine or a spot of bubbles come the weekend? Yet, do you know what your love of vino is doing to your skin? Once again, Dr Nigma shows us exactly why wine isn’t the answer when you want to get the glow. A tinge of red and lots of wine are all you can expect with a love of wine. But when you drop your dosage, you’ve got a higher chance of bringing back the glow.
Poor sleeps can aid in aging and skin sensitivity to the likes of sun exposure. So, it’s safe to say that there’s a reason it’s called beauty sleep. If you want glowing skin, a good night’s sleep is paramount. Clean skin, lots of moisture and a full night of quality sleep can go a long way where your skin’s natural slow is concerned.
Skin and stress go hand in hand. Or, rather, they don’t! If you want your skin to age, embrace the stress. Yet, if you’re looking to keep the visible signs of ageing at bay (and adopt a youthful glow), you have to stop stressing. It has been medicinally proven that stress shows in the skin. In the form of early signs of ageing, wrinkles and fine lines, loss of elasticity, acne, and dullness. So if you want to glow, girl – you’ve got to stop stressing!
Serious about glowing skin? Then sweat it out. Facialist Jocelyn Petroni details how blood rich in oxygen can give you a glow. Even a day after exercise, the skin looks plump and has a youthful glow, thanks to oxygen-rich blood cells and better circulation, the skin gets the nutrients it needs. And we get the elusive glow we’ve been searching for. Who knew it was so simple?
While there may be a chance that you can acquire glowing skin solo, it’s much better to work with an expert. Of course, your lifestyle choices, diet and exercise can all play a part in just how much the skin glows, it can be a lot more complicated than that. If you’re looking for a healthy glow, nothing beats a specialist facial.
Your skin is unique – and only an expert can tailor a treatment to what your skin needs at any given time. From hydration to exfoliation, work with a skin specialist like Abigail James to create a bespoke series of treatments to bring back your glow.
How you treat your skin shows. And no amount of face wipes can make that happen. Instead, you need to work with a carefully curated selection of products to cleanse the skin, hydrate it, and treat it. Whether you’re suffering with acne or dealing with dryness, your facialist can advise you on the precise concoction of products to treat the skin and give you back your glow.
For that wow-factor finish, makeup matters. While the secret to glowing skin might just be in the way you care for your skin, how you present it counts toe. Dewy foundation, rosy blush, and a good concealer can go a long way. And when all else fails, highlight. A little false glow when you’re not feeling your best can be exactly what you need to get the glow.
