Beginners guide to glowing skin

There are many ways to achieve glowing skin. Simple changes to your diet and lifestyle can do wonders in very few days. On top of it following a good skincare routine and investing in quality skincare products is a winning combination to achieve that glowing skin.
With the wedding season kicking in, here is how you unlock the secrets to glowing skin.


The term “Glowing skin” would mean different things to different people. For some, it would mean healthy skin rather than dull. To some others, it would mean the shine.


So, what does healthy glowing skin look like?

  • Smooth, with no bumps.
  • Hydrated with no dryness and cracks.
  • Even-toned with no blemishes.


Nobody could say that they have perfect skin with absolutely no imperfections. Such skin is not attainable. But certainly, healthy skin can be achieved if there is effort put in to minimize the problems that the skin is prone to and with natural characteristics.
Many people think skincare towards healthy looking skin begins with incorporating premium or luxury skincare products which is a myth. That is where companies complicate your process of choosing the right product claiming their product is the best.
But the reality is the simplest of the products with ingredients that you know about already make all the difference. Incorporating a good routine paves the way. Let’s take a look at a simple routine.



Cleansing


Cleansers help remove dirt, oil, and excess makeup from your skin. Using a cleanser that is mild, and pH balanced is important.


Exfoliation


The process of removing the dead skin cells using a manual or a chemical product to achieve the same. Though the process mentions removing the dead skin cells choose a product that does not leave a harsh impact on the skin.


Moisturizing


Moisturizing helps add hydration to the skin. Applying the moisturizer post-cleansing/exfoliation is best to seal the hydration.


Sun protection


UV rays in sunlight prove to be harmful to the skin. It could cause sun damage, burning, and early signs of aging. Hence it is always best to apply sunscreen before stepping outdoors. Always make sure to check the below factors before purchasing sunscreen.


One that has

  • Broad spectrum
  • Higher SPF
  • Suited for skin type


Massage


An activated and highly concentrated form of nutrients that the skin can readily accept to fight signs of aging or skin care problems is what the serum is. This form helps the skin cells absorb the nutrients in a much more effective way. So it is most important to choose one that suits your skin and is aimed at the skincare problems that you wish to get rid of.


A simple 5-minute massage with a face roller has numerous benefits like increasing blood flow to cheeks and reducing stress and skin puffiness.
