Glowing skin is what everyone needs. When we look at the models, instagram influencers, and beauty gurus, a part of us always ends up thinking, “Oh! I wish I had that glow!”
Well, you can and it is no rocket science! To get that glow, all you need to do is follow a strict skin regimen and a good diet. A little bit of lifestyle changes go a long way and believe me, you will get that glowing skin, youthful, and soft skin. Let’s see what you have to do to get that glowing skin:
1) Follow a Nighttime Skincare Regimen – Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing (CTM)
As we age, our skin starts getting dull. Aging, exposure to the sun, and constant exposure to pollution and other environmental factors play their part. To keep your skin youthful and glowing besides all these factors, you need to take good care of it. For that, follow a strict skincare regimen at night.
Start with cleansing your skin and get rid of all the pollutants, makeup, and dirt that might clog your pores. Investing in a good face wash and cleanser is a good way to start. Next, get a good toner and gently apply it on your face. It can be available in the form of a spray or you can take a cotton pad and pat it on your face gently.
The last step is moisturizing. You can choose your favorite moisturizer and apply it on your face. With the CTM routine, your skin will feel refreshed after a long and tiring day and you can breathe new life into it every night. To top it all, a good night’s sleep will do the magic.
Pro Tip: Invest in organic products for cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your skin to avoid harsh chemicals and detergents.
2) Take Care of What you Eat and Drink
Your skin is the direct reflection of what goes into your body. If you’re eating a lot of sugary, fast, and oily food – your skin will suffer. The results are usually acne, pimples, dull and dry skin, and whatnot.
To keep your skin glowing, you need to keep it healthy and for that you need to switch to a clean and healthy diet. Start by drinking lots of water. 8 glasses a day and even more will help your skin stay hydrated and get that glow. Eat greens and veggies like a bowl of salad, protein-rich food, vitamins, etc.
Don’t include a lot of junk food, oily and fatty food, and sugar in your diet. Try to keep it natural and rich in water content.
Pro Tip: Go for an all-natural diet for some time till your body gets rid of all toxins and then start eating selectively.
3) Massage Your Face
Our skin has tiny networks of veins and blood vessels and massage helps keep the blood circulating well. So, when you massage your face regularly, the skin of your face will feel relaxed as the blood flow increases. This helps you get that glow as your skin gets healthier and radiant.
The other benefit of massaging your face is that you can fight the signs of aging. The wrinkles and sagging skin can be corrected and avoided with regular face massage.
Pro Tip: Use good natural face oil and tools like a face roller or guasha.
4) Use Sunscreen
The biggest mistake we make with our skin is avoiding sunscreen. As we age, the exposure to the sun and UV rays causes huge damage to our skin. Thus, we lose the natural radiance and health of our skin.
So, always wear sunscreen when you are going out in the sun. It will not only guard your skin against the sun damage but will also keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Plus, you will not get a sunburn.
Pro tip: Go for SPF 50 or more for better results.
5) Get Some Good Sleep For Glowing Skin
Just like your body, your skin needs rest too. When we sleep, especially after a skin regimen, the skin gets a chance to breathe and relax, which leads to the natural glow. That’s why you must have heard the phrase ‘beauty sleep’ numerous times in your life.
So, don’t be awake past reasonable hours and sleep in time. It will give your skin a break from screen exposure, pollution, and other factors that lead to skin damage.
Pro tip: Use a good leave-in face mask to wake up with a glow the next morning.
So, with these tips and some lifestyle changes, you can get that glow! Start today and treat your skin right. You will definitely see the results and it will feel so good!
Just remember, your glowing skin is a reflection of your lifestyle. So, take care!
