Let’s be honest, we all want super soft glowing skin. We want to look like our best selves, and only have to wear the tiniest hint of BB cream, rather than a full face of foundation. But just how can we do that, especially as the years go by? Well, there are some tricks you may not know about that could help. Keep reading to find out what they are.
Number one on the list of tips for a radiant complexion is using a good cleanser. Yes, I know that you know all about how you have to take your makeup off, and how it’s not go to bed in it at night, because of it smothers the skin and stops it refreshing itself. But to do this, you need a kickass cleanser.
Some of the cleaning products out there are too wishy-washy, they just don’t have the guts to remove full coverage foundation or waterproof eye makeup. The problem with this is that you end up pulling your face about and scrubbing at it to remove your makeup. Something that is definitely not good for the condition of your face, or the radiance of your skin.
A good cleaner will be strong enough to remove all of your makeup, but will also leave you skin feeling clean moisturized. Remember having hydrated skin is one of the keys to radiance and your cleanser is a big part of this.
Something else that you can use to get a more glowing complexion is microdermabrasion. This a treatment where the top layer of skin is removed to reveal the younger, fresher skin underneath.
Until very recently you have only been able to go for this treatment in clinics and spas, but now you can get at home microdermabrasion kits. These can work out as a lot more cost effective, than paying a spa to do it for you. As well as having the benefit of being able to do it in the comfort of your own home. Great for if you get a little red afterward, and don’t want anybody to see you until it goes down.
There are changes that you can make to your diet as well to help your skin glow with radiance. In particular, the consumption of food rich in antioxidants can be very helpful.
This is because these attach themselves to the free radicals in your system. Free radicals are associated with cell replication problems like aging. So by eating well, you can help minimize the aging of your skin.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with a little helping hand either, and that is where some of the makeup products on the market come in.
First, we have shimmering primer, designed to be applied before your foundation. This will smooth out your skin, as well adding a hit of radiance to your face.
Then there are the ever popular highlighters and strobers that are around at the moment. These are design to provide reflection and give a dewy, youthful glow. Apply them to areas that would be naturally hit by the light for maximum effect and radiance.
