Radiant skin: 5 Fail Safe Ways To Get Your Glow On Everyday
9 Oct 2015
Achieving a radiant skin with just a few simple tips and tricks. Great skin starts in the salon and can then be maintained from home.
Exfoliate your way to radiant skin
It is vital to exfoliate the skin regularly in order to slough off dead skin and encourage the production of new skin cells.
At home: you can make use of mechanical or enzymatic exfoliants to remove these dead skin cells, they are gentle and effective. We recommend Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant or Lamelle’s Cathepzyme.
Professional treatments: to truly boost your skin’s collagen production and get rid of dead skin cells we highly recommend Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels, they offer a great two-in-one solution and help keep ageing at bay.
Serums and radiant skin
Serums provide a concentrated boost of ingredients to activate your skin’s functioning, as well as treat specific personalised skin conditions. Products rich Hyaluronic acid will plump up and hydrate your skin they are great for daytime use. We Recommend Lamelle Hydrating HA Plus.
Products containing Retinoids/Ferulic Acid will help with cellular turnover and assist with slowing down ageing and improving skin texture. We recommend SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic Serum, Lamelle’s RA Cream and Dermaquest’s Retinol Brightening serum.
Light Reflecting Foundations Or BB Creams
To get a radiant skin and an added glow no matter where you are, choose a light reflecting foundation and/or BB cream to diffuse the natural light as it falls on your skin thereby minimising lines and wrinkles. These products give an almost ‘Halo’ effect on the skin.
Highlighters are made of a superfine milled powder, and as a result, they do not clog the pores, these often have soft pearl and gold shimmers to reflect light, they can be used to emphasise areas on your skin that you would like to have an added glow.
Never overdo these, less is more or else you will land up looking caked and shining like a Christmas tree.
Never underestimate the power of water and keeping your skin hydrated from the inside and the outside. Drink a minimum of 6 glasses per day to hydrate and replenish lost moisture in the skin, as well as flush toxins.
